Look out, L.A.



Sept. 11, 2005 — In an apparent Sept. 11 communiqué broadcast on ABC News, an al Qaeda operative threatens new attacks against cities in the U.S. and Australia.

"Yesterday, London and Madrid. Tomorrow, Los Angeles and Melbourne, Allah willing. And this time, don't count on us demonstrating restraint or compassion," the tape warns. "We are Muslims. We love peace, but peace on our terms, peace as laid down by Islam, not the so-called peace of occupiers and dictators."

American intelligence officials believe the man who appears on the tape to be Adam Gadahn of Orange County, Calif. Last year, Gadahn delivered a similar taped communiqué for al Qaeda. That tape was later deemed authentic.

The ABC News report concludes ...

Only a few years ago, Adam Gadahn was a southern California teenager with interests in the environment and heavy metal music.

Our two cities Quintero (your LA, and my Melbourne) might be in the firing line, but if anything happens it certainly won't be "Allah willing".

Ven. Aussie-

Yes, indeed. Let us pray for one another.

They think they are following God, but their God is really Satan.

St. Michael, pray for us!

Actually, the L.A. Cathedral is probably the safest place in L.A. if there is a terrorist attack. It's built like a bunker.

See what happens when you mix left-wing environmentalism with heavy metal music (and dumbass parents)! Only if he would have done yoga...
