Mall Plotter Made Suicide Videotape, Hates Jews

From those lovers of the gorgeous mosaic at the DNC’s Associated Press:

Shown in a courtroom artist’s drawing is a man identified by authorities as Derrick Shareef, left, 22, of Rockford, Ill., as he appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Maria Valdez Friday, Dec. 8, 2006, in Chicago. Authorities said Shareef, described as a converted Muslim, was charged Friday in a plot to set off hand grenades in garbage cans at a shopping mall the Friday before Christmas.

Man charged with shopping mall bomb plot

Fri, Dec. 08, 2006


CHICAGO – A man was arrested Friday by federal agents on charges of planning to set off hand grenades in garbage cans at a shopping mall.

Derrick Shareef, 22, of Rockford, was arrested when he met with an undercover agent in a parking lot to trade a set of stereo speakers for four hand grenades and a handgun.

Federal officials said he planned to set off four hand grenades in garbage cans at the CherryVale shopping mall in Rockford, about 90 miles northwest of Chicago.

He was charged with one count of attempting to damage or destroy a building by fire or explosion and one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Federal officials said that in September, Shareef became acquainted with a witness who was cooperating with the FBI and confided to him that he wanted to commit acts of "violent jihad," as well as other crimes.

Funny how many hours went by before our one party media released this gentleman’s name. I wonder why that was?

Probably Mr. Shareef has just confused our Christmas traditions with those of Ramadan.


The Smoking Gun has posted an easy to read version of the pdf file of the affidavit from the FBI agent who was involved in this sting.

They also have provided some excerpts from the affidavit which our one party media has failed to mention:

Shopping Mall Terror Plot Foiled

FBI: Man planned "to disrupt Christmas" with "acts of jihad"

DECEMBER 8–An Illinois man plotted to set off hand grenades at a Chicago-area shopping mall in a holiday season terror campaign that was thwarted by federal investigators. According to an FBI affidavit, Derrick Shareef, 22, told a confidential source that he wanted to "commit violent acts of jihad," and spoke of killing judges and blowing up public buildings.

Shareef told the [FBI agent] he sought “to disrupt Christmas,” adding that, “I swear by Allah man, I’m down for it too, I’m down for the cause, I’m down to live for the cause and die for the cause, man.”

The document does not further describe the supposed cause of Shareef, who was named today in a federal felony complaint. Shareef is quoted telling the FBI source, “I probably would have eventually ended up stabbing the shit outta some Jews or something. Just stabbing them niggers with a steak knife… Because during that war with Hezbollah, man, I had already started to look at synagogues out here…”

In advance of a planned attack on a Rockford mall, Shareef prepared a martyr’s videotape in which he let the “enemies of Islam” know that “the time for jihad is now.”

He added, “This is a warning to those who disbelieve, that we are here for you, and I am ready to give my life… May Allah protect me on this mission we conduct.”

Shareef was arrested Wednesday afternoon, moments after trading a set of stereo speakers for four nonfunctioning grenades provided to him by an undercover agent.

What’s this? The gentleman used the N-word? There are a number of similarly piquant quotes in the affidavit, which makes for a very sobering read.

The affidavit also notes that “Derrick’s” full name is Talib Abu Salam Ibn Shareef.

From his patois one suspects Mr. Shareef is a convert.
