Selected quotations from the criminal complaint against Khalid Aldawsari, via Scribd, February 24:
“Only gratification from Allah is what I want; therefore, it is what I seek. And
God willing, I shall encounter it in eternity not in this world” (p. 6).
“You who created mankind and who is knowledgeable of what is in the womb, grant me martyrdom for Your sake and make Jihad easy for me only in Your path, for you have no partner, and make me reside in heaven eternally forever, and shield me in your shadow on the day when there is no shadow but yours. My God, You are the one who responds to supplication” (p. 6).
“if this is the West’s version of freedom, we have our own policies in freedom and it is war until… the infidels leave defeated” (p. 6).
From an email message with the title “How to make explosives”:
“In the name of Allah The Beneficient, The Merciful. Nitro Yoria [Urea] explosive is more powerful than T.N.T.” (p. 7)
From a document found in Aldawsari’s email:
“The page contains a simplified lesson on how to booby-trap a vehicle with items that are readily available in every home. This lesson is directed especially to the brothers in America or Europe stating if anyone is able to execute one of those operations in one of the European countries that is participating in the fight against Muslims, this operation might lead to the withdrawal of that country The message further states that one operation in the land of infidels is equal to ten operations in the land of the Muslims. The writer states that therefore it’s incumbent on Muslims to conquer infidels in their land (p. 8).
“I excelled in my studies in high school in order to take advantage of an opportunity for a scholarship to America, offered by the Saululi [perjorative for Saudi royal family] government and its companies, so I applied with [Saudi industrial corporations], and with the Traitor of the Two Holy Places scholarship program and was accepted for all of them, thank God. I chose [a specific Saudi sponsoring corporation] for two reasons. First, [it] sends its students directly to America, …. contrary to [the other] which requires its students to study in the Land of the Two Holy Places for one year. Second, [the sponsoring corporation’s] financial support is the largest, which will help tremendously in providing me with the support I need for Jihad, God willing. And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives, and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for Jihad. I put my trust in God, for he is the best Master and Authority” (pp. 9-10).
And from the investigating agent, after other information on what Aldawsari considered “nice targets”:
“On February 19 2011, Aldawsari conducted the following keyword searches in order: “party in dallas;” “can u take a backpack to nightclub;” “bakcpack” [sic]; “dallas night clubs” (p. 13).
