It was reported today that officials have arrested "five Islamic radicals" (and one alleged sympathizer), who planned on killing soldiers at Fort Dix Army base in Pemberton, New Jersey.
For the record, Fort Dix is not that far from where I live.
The six men are Eljvir Duka, 23, Shain Duka, 26, and Dritan Duka, 28 (three brothers from Yugoslavia all living here illegally), Mohamad Ibrahim Shnewer, 22 (a U.S. citizen born in Jordan), Serdar Tatar, 23 (born in Turkey), and Agron Abdullahu, 24 (also a former Yugoslavian).
Yugoslavia, Turkey and Jordan; not a single Iraqi, Iranian or Afghan among them -- I'm just sayin' is all.
As scary as this all is, these morons really were not the brightest of the bunch. It seems that they were caught because one of them brought a video tape of themselves and others shooting off guns and making declarations of a Jihad to a local video store -- so that copies of the tape could be made!
Think about that for a second.
Apparently when an employee of the store took a look at the tape, he notified the authorities.
It was noted that one of the defendants delivered pizza to the base, and claimed the he knew it "like the back of his hand".
Oh no, your pizza delivery guy might be a terrorist in training!
Speaking of which The Duka brothers ran a roofing business, Shnewer drove a taxi-cab in Philadelphia, Tatar worked at a 7-11, and Abdullahu worked at a Shop-Rite.
I guess this proves that blue collar terrorists are not the most effective.
