TAMPA - Two Saudi men were arrested Friday after they boarded a school bus and rode to Wharton High School in New Tampa.
“Nothing to see here, folks. Nothing to cause alarm. Let’s just move along.”
Students on the bus became alarmed, as did the bus driver, who called ahead. Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies met the bus at the school and detained the men. No one was injured and nothing out of line occurred on the bus, deputies said.
And “no one was injured and nothing out of line occurred” on all of the walk-through test flights that took place before 9/11, either.
Mana Saleh Almanajam, 23, who lives in Apt. 302 in The Point apartments, and Shaker Mohsen Alsidran, 20 Monticello Gardens, Apt. 304-A, each were charged with trespassing on school property. Both remained in Orient Road Jail on Friday evening. Bail for each was set at $250.
Nope. These two don’t fit any profile for potential terrorists. Why set bail for them at all? They should have just let ‘em go on their own recognisance.
“Both defendants gave several versions of the reason they took a school bus to a high school,” said Hillsborough County sheriff’s spokesman J.D. Callaway.
“They said they wanted to go to Wharton to look around, and then they said they wanted to go there to have some fun, and then they said they wanted to enroll in the English classes there,” Callaway said.
Nope. No pattern evolving here at all. Keep moving along, people. The cops have lap-dancers that they’ve got to go arrest for being within six feet of consenting adults.
“We’re not sure if this was a situation of them just being new to this country, or if they were confused or what it was,” Callaway said. “We were unsure as to exactly what the final reason was, but it did cause great concern for the students on the bus and for us. One of the guys was wearing shorts with a black trench coat.“
Yeah. We all know how fuckin’ FREEZING COLD IT WAS IN TAMPA ON FRIDAY, MAY 19TH, 2006! (Hint: Mid-80’s.)
While on the bus, the men laughed and spoke in Arabic, Callaway said.
Yeah. They were merrily chuckling at how easy it was going to be for them to re-create Beslan against these blindfolded sheep and then go to meet their 72 goats.
Ahmed Bedier, Tampa director of the
Council on American-Islamic RelationsAllah’s Smoke, Mirrors & Snake Oil Sales, Inc.™, said the men likely meant no harm and that because “they were from Saudi Arabia, that escalated the situation.”
He blamed the incident on cultural differences.
“They didn’t differentiate between a school bus and public transportation,” he said.
Yeeeeeeah. Pull the other one, Ahmed. They’ve been here for SIX FUCKIN’ MONTHS & STILL CAN’T PICK OUT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A FUCKIN’ SCHOOL BUS & A HART LINE BUS?!
The bus picked up the students and the men at about 7 a.m. Friday at the corner of Fletcher Avenue and 42nd Street, deputies said.
The bus driver, a substitute, reached her supervisors by telephone. They relayed the information to Wharton High resource Deputy Mike Eastman, who met the bus when it arrived at school at about 7:30 a.m., and detained the men.
The sheriff’s Homeland Security Division, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Regional Domestic Security Task Force, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the FBI all were notified.
Almanajam and Alsidran at first told deputies they were from Morocco, but later admitted being from Saudi Arabia, deputies said. They said they were enrolled at the English Language Institute at the University of South Florida.
Nope. No reason to even REMOTELY suspect that they might have ties to the Jumpin’ Jihadis™.
Both arrived in the United States about six months ago and have student visas that require them to be enrolled at the English Language Institute, Callaway said.
Authorities searched the apartments of the two men and found nothing of concern, he said.
How about checking on their phone records? Naaaah. There’s no need for that. These guys are obviously just misunderstood Peaceful Inner Strugglers™.
Keep those heads buried in the sand, LefTards. It’ll make it easier for Allah’s Ass Lickers™ to cut your heads off when the time comes.
[Splendid post, B.C.!
The Islamic Republic of Iran is planning to use as many as eight different terrorist groups to launch attacks against the United States and its allies in the region should the United States launch military strikes against its nuclear facilities, a London-based newspaper reported.
Another Iranian intelligence source tells NewsMax that Iran plans suicide strikes in the United States, and may seek to hold mass numbers of Americans hostage.
Lock ‘n load, LCs, lock ‘n load… — Emp.M.]
Update: 6:04 P.M. EDT– The local Fox news just reported that the $250 bail for these two “culturally confused” individuals has been revoked, because “the authorities” want to “take a closer look” at them. Perhaps the Feds read the Rott?
