    Muslim Extremist's Web Site Stirs Mixed Emotions in Charlotte, N.C.


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In a quiet, upscale neighborhood in Charlotte, N.C., rows of custom-style homes and neatly landscaped lawns represent the American dream.
    But one local resident has shattered that image, calling for the death of American troops in Iraq and supporting Al Qaeda through his Web site, which he reportedly runs from his parents' home.
    Samir Khan is the man behind Revolution.Muslimpad.com — a radical Islamic site that praises Usama bin Laden and asks for Allah to “curse more American soldiers.”

    Which emotions were "mixed"? The fear and contempt or the elation and excitement?

    I'm sure that DU has a link to that website. This guy has lots in common with them except he probably isn't smoking pot in his parents basement.

    Of course this takes place in NC. :D

    on edit: And this is one of the few areas I wish they'd limit freedom of speech.

    How can you live in such a good place, with such a good quality of life, and support people like that on the other side of the world?

    What I find laughable and ironic is that he wouldn't be able to hold conflicting views with Sharia Law, he'd be dead, that goes for neo-nazis and neo-communists, deluded idiots.

    For alienated losers with a violent bent, Radical Islam is now the revolutionary ideology of choice. It justifies their bloodlust while providing a rationale for their failures in the corrupt, western world, and promises an exalted place in the new order, or, if it fails, in the afterlife.

    Neighbors described Khan — who immigrated to the U.S. from Saudi Arabia when he was 7 years old — as “friendly” and “reserved.” They said he launched his Web site while taking classes at Central Piedmont Community College and selling Cutco knives.

    Abdullah Mahmud, an acquaintance of Khan’s who attends the same mosque, the Islamic Center of Greater Charlotte, defended Khan's viewpoints, saying his anger stems from the United States' foreign policy and occupation of Iraq.

    Mahmoud said the blood-drenched videos Khan shows of U.S. soldiers injured in combat “serve the purpose of making the reality of the Iraqi scene visible to people.”

    “Those videos are not much different than videos involving American soldiers targeting Iraqi civilians,” he said. “You have to look at both sides here.”

    One of Khan’s neighbors, Ron Williams, also defended Khan’s right to free speech.

    “Our actions (in Iraq) were interpreted broadly in the Muslim world as an attack on Islam,” Williams said, “I defend his right to speak out.”
    Several actions must immediately be taken with this site:
    1. Take the knives away from Khan.
    2. Deport him back to Saudi Arabia, along with his family.
    3. Shut down the Islamic Center of Greater Charlotte, detain the staff and begin investigating everyone who goes there for terrorist ties, test them for explosive residue and go through the finances of the mosque with a fine-toothed comb. Start with Abdullah Mahmud.
    4. Free one Gitmo inmate pending his terrorism trial and have him stay with Ron Williams and his family for a while.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    So where is DHS anyway? This is something they should be on top of.

    I'd support those actions whole heartedly.
