Obama: Terror explosvies found, bound for U.S.



Published: Fri, October 29, 2010 @ 5:13 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama declared today that authorities had uncovered a "credible terrorist threat" against the United States after the overseas discovery of U.S.-bound packages containing explosives aboard cargo jets.

The president said both had been addressed to Jewish organizations in the Chicago area.

The disclosures triggered a worldwide alert amid fears that al-Qaida was attempting to carry out fresh terror attacks.

The events "underscore the necessity of remaining vigilant against terrorism," the president said. The packages both originated in Yemen, but Obama did not explicitly assign blame to al-Qaida, which is active in the Arab nation and long has made clear its goal of attacking the United States.

The events unfolded four days before national elections in which discussion of terrorism has played almost no role.

Obama stepped to the podium in the hours after officials disclosed that authorities in Dubai intercepted an explosive device bound for a Chicago-area Jewish institution. The second package was aboard a plane searched in England, and officials said it contained a printer toner cartridge with wires and powder.

That second package was aboard a plane in East Midlands, north of London.

"The packages both originated in Yemen, but Obama did not explicitly assign blame to al-Qaida, which is active in the Arab nation and long has made clear its goal of attacking the United States."

Sheer political propaganda. Has the AP now degenerated into Associated Propaganda?

Stan is due to tell us that the packages actually came from Obama.

It is time for us to realize that they freedoms that we enjoy as a democracy and Islam cant coexist. Islam will stop at nothing less then everyone being under sharia law. Being ruled over by Islamic clerics.

UNDERSTANDING ISLAM

http://www.bible.ca/islam/islam-kills...

Islam Does Not Mean Peace
Islam only means peace to Muslims who blindly submit. To Christians Islam means war, persecution and death.
The Qur'an says: "Fight and slay the pagans [Christians] wherever ye find them and seize them, confine them, and lie in wait for them in every place of ambush" (Surah 9:5)

5:51 O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily God guideth not a people unjust.

5:72-73: They do blaspheme who say: "God is Christ the son of Mary." But said Christ: "O Children of Israel! worship God, my Lord and your Lord." Whoever joins other gods with God, - God will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrongdoers be no one to help. They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One God. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.
