AUSTIN (KXAN) - The University of Texas is evacuating all of its buildings due to threats on campus after a caller claiming to be with al-Qaida said he placed bombs all over campus that would go off around 10 a.m. -- which has since passed.

"Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible," read a message posted at 9:53 a.m. on the campus' emergency alert website. "More information to come."

UT Director of Communications Rhonda Weldon said the university got a call around 8:35 a.m. from a male with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus.

He said he was with al-Qaida and that these bombs would go off in 90 minutes.

President Williams Powers has been notified, and officials are now evacuating all of the buildings out of an abundance of caution.

North Dakota State University is also being evacuated for the same reason.

WTF!!!



DEVELOPING: North Dakota State University officials are ordering the campus evacuated after receiving a bomb threat.

NDSU issued a statement shortly before 10 a.m. Friday telling all employees and students to leave campus within a half-hour because of a bomb threat. No other details were given.

More than 14,000 students are enrolled at NDSU.

If we had a real media, Obama would be laughed out of the White House.

I was referring to the home grown insanity that the current middle east situation will cause. It will bring out the U.S. Muslim wannabe fanatics and the plain old American nut cases.

For what it's worth, al Queda generally doesn't call in warnings ahead of their attacks. Some students wanted to start their weekend early. If that's the case, I hope they are caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

I don't know if you ever watch or listen to Glen Beck, he says there is a direct connection between the middle east protesters and our occupy wall street movement.He could be right.

The north Dakota threat and the Texas threat were called in at the same time.
I don't think there is a bomb but I do think the same group of people were trying to cause the disruption at both schools.

Muslims find dogs offensive.


Muslims in Spain Declare Jihad on Dogs
Spanish authorities are investigating the recent deaths by poisoning of more than a dozen dogs (http://www.elpais.com/articulo/sociedad/Alarma/Lleida/caso/perros/envenenados/elpepuespcat/20110908elpepusoc_10/Tes) in Lérida, a city in the northeastern region of Catalonia that has become ground zero in an intensifying debate over the role of Islam in Spain.
All of the dogs were poisoned in September (local media reports here (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-CGKb88ZX-lg/TnWWisNCaCI/AAAAAAAAQWg/-ANnyLLqdR8/s1600/LA%2BRAZON%2B18-9-11.jpg), here (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ALwla0JKBvI/Tmm6PpYgOsI/AAAAAAAAQR4/sqTzIfIMf8k/s1600/SEGRE%2B8-9-11.jpg), here (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ewG1vvMzwoY/Tmm6Pe06YPI/AAAAAAAAQRw/Pek7JaxiXK4/s1600/LA%2BMANYANA%2B8-9-11%2B1.jpg), here (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-g16fNlA39OI/Tmm6PDZPs_I/AAAAAAAAQRo/rDLFZMliMcA/s1600/LA%2BMANYANA%2B8-9-11.jpg) and here (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-gdNNF4_LT5U/Tmm6P6-mPHI/AAAAAAAAQSA/zKZG4v_3rME/s1600/SEGRE%2B8-9-11%2B1.jpg)) in Lérida's working class neighbourhoods of Cappont and La Bordeta, districts that are heavily populated by Muslim immigrants and where many dogs have been killed in recent years.


Local residents say Muslim immigrants killed the dogs because according to Islamic teaching dogs are "unclean" animals (http://islamqa.com/en/ref/69840).
Over the past several months, residents taking their dogs for walks have been harassed by Muslim immigrants opposed to seeing the animals in public. Muslims have also launched a number of anti-dog campaigns on Islamic websites and blogs based in Spain.


In response to the "lack of sufficient police to protect the neighbourhood (http://www.europapress.es/catalunya/noticia-vecinos-bordeta-lleida-patrullan-incognito-denunciar-vandalos-20091005220030.html)," 50 local residents have established alternating six-person citizen patrols to escort people walking their dogs.


In July, two Islamic groups based in Lérida asked city officials to regulate the presence of dogs in public spaces (http://www.alertadigital.com/2011/01/13/el-ayuntamiento-socialista-de-lerida-podria-prohibir-los-perros-en-los-autobuses-para-no-ofender-a-los-musulmanes/) so they do not "offend Muslims." Muslims are demanding that dogs be banned from all forms of public transportation including all city buses as well as from all areas frequented by Muslim immigrants.


Muslims in Lérida say the presence of dogs violates their religious freedom and their right to live according to Islamic principles.

There is some truth to that. However, the US OWS has basically been coopted by Socialists and Obama apologists. The foreign versions were coopted by Jihad extremists.

Yep, that explains it. Every weekend this happens spontaneously across the fruited plains. We are just now noticing after over 200 years of this merry making.

"Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible,"

This should have been their clue that it wasn't Islamic terrorists.

It would probably be more accurate to say that they have some things in common, not that they are actually connected.

A great reason to send in the K-9 units to police the vermin.

Kind of a weird selection, wouldn't you think? Why not higher profile, more populous schools like the UCLA or NYU? Interestingly, a Google search for "usa university" brings up a UT Austin page as the second result?
