    That Islamic website is a BB, like this one. I wonder how credible it is.

    Although it does creep me out.

    Isn't that what everyone wanted, because that Muslim Extremist failed a lie-detector test?

    I've never heard of this site, so after reading the article I read a few more pages. Sorry, but I think any "publication/website" that has Hal Lindsey, Larry Elder, Ann Coulter, Pat Buchanan and Jerry Falwell (to name just a few) as its major contributors and that is sponsored by "Clean Films" (they are the self-righteous VD renters that edit other people's films) is a little right of center. Just as I'm am suspect of those publications a little left of center (Mother Jones magazine comes to mind), I find that those right of center have trouble with the truth also.

    I feel the are just adding fuel to the fire of hate. But I could be wrong, guess we'll see in a few days. But those people who promote this website should be OK -- their home office is Cave Junction, OR -- and a cave should be a safe place to hide.

    Well, you could print out the Islamic website that makes those claims, and take it to someone to translate. Guess that would be an easy way to find "the truth."

    I am fascinated by Hal Lindsey, try to watch his "Intelligence Briefing" at least once in a month to know what he is saying. Doom and more doom,end of the world updates, bible based.
    The Debka people are also very right wing, former Israeli intelligence folks, they have an agenda but are quick and probably believable on terror signs and chatter.
    The threat came off some Islamist site.
    No one I know would know if it is credible or psychological.
