More on Derrick Shareef’s jihad. “Feds arrest man on terrorism-related charges,” by Natasha Korecki for the Chicago Sun Times, :
A Rockford man allegedly planned to set off hand grenades in garbage cans at a shopping mall near Rockford as part of his plot to let the world know “the time for jihad is now.”
Derrick Shareef, 22, targeted the Cherry Vale shopping mall, which has about 130 retail stores. But in recorded conversations he said the mall was “just one potential place,” and that he hoped to one day “smoke a judge,” according to the federal charges.
Should he die before the attack, Shareef made a videotape statement to explain his actions.
“I am from America, and this tape is to let you guys know, who disbelieve in Allah, to let the enemies of Islam know, and to let the Muslims alike know that the time for jihad is now…be strong, oh Mujahideen…May Allah protect me on this mission we conduct…so do not cry, do not mourn for me,” he said, according to the FBI affidavit.
Oh, no worries. I won’t.
