Jihadist Threats to Water Supply?
How Will We Know?
John Guandolo, former FBI agent and author of Raising a Jihadi Generation: Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America, reports that on January 17th Asaf Mohammad, 25, was found naked and stuck in a water pipeline leading to the United Water Facility in Manalapan Township New Jersey. Mohammad was charged with trespassing and released.
On May 14, 2013, seven foreign “chemical engineers” from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore, 5 men and 2 women, were arrested in the middle of the night for trespassing near the Quabbin Reservoir in Western Massachusetts which is the main water source for the Greater Boston area. All seven were released and no further information regarding this case has been made available.
Why were these persons snooping around major U.S. water supply facilities in the middle of the night? Should the name Mohammad or being from Pakistan or Saudi Arabia raise any suspicions? Are law enforcement personnel allowed to ask these questions, or is that deemed politically incorrect? At a time when our borders are wide open and terrorist plots are being carried out all around the world, shouldn’t the media report such suspicious activity to the public?
John Guandolo contends that Americans need to face reality and finally begin to understand the threat posed by the Sharia law that drives the violence and terror perpetrated by jihadists around the world. He issues a wake-up call to Americans to come to grips with the realities of the international Jihadist movement, its motives and methods. The best way to combat this enemy is through public education and the exposure of the conspirators involved in the planning and conducting of terror.
With knowledge as the best weapon in mind, Guandolo has written his latest book, Raising a Jihadi Generation. The Muslim Brotherhood’s network in the U.S. radicalizes American Muslims for jihad and provides support for both “homegrown” jihadis as well as jihadis coming here to wage war against America. Guandolo affirms that—while directed toward law enforcement, military and intelligence operatives—it is a book every American should own.
John Guandolo is the Founder of UnderstandingTheThreat.com(www.understandingthethreat.
