Behavior at Love Field refocus FBI attention on women

Friday, April 6, 2007


DALLAS – With one already considered ‘dangerous’ by the United States government, two women became the center of more critical attention after their alleged actions at Dallas Love Field caught the interest of the FBI and Dallas Police Department.

Sources said in February, Kimberly “Asma” Al-Homsi, 42, and Aisha Abdul-Rahman Hamad, 50, allegedly scoped out Dallas Love Field in a manner classic of surveying an area.

Al-Homsi was already under surveillance and is on the government’s no fly list since being involved in a road rage incident back in December of 2005. Officials said during the incident she held up an inert grenade and threatened another driver. Garland’s bomb squad reported they later found ammunition in her car.

If I didn’t have a scarf on my head and it was a simple road rage I would not be on the terrorism watch list,” she said.

As for long-range assault rifle and explosives training official said Al-Homsi said she admitted to have studied, Al-Homsi said it was something she was educated on while growing up.

Back during the February incident, Dan Hamilton said he was suspicious when he spotted the two women along a fence at Love Field with binoculars.

“I saw a car parked along this fence here; and there was a young lady sitting looking through the fence at the control tower in that vicinity using binoculars,” he said.

Hamilton, who heads the Frontiers of Flight Museum, said police told him previously to be on the lookout for two suspicious women wearing fatigues and scouting runways.

“When she got off the car, I noticed that she did have fatigues on and matched the description of what police had mentioned to us a week or so before,” he said.

Sources told News 8 the women were not only spotted outside the airport, but they were also seen inside the terminal pacing distances in what they said appeared to be typical surveillance techniques. However, the women said they were simply going to the flight museum and then watching planes take off. They deny they were surveying the airport.

“There were a lot of people parked outside,” Hamad said. “One man was taking pictures of planes taking off.”

As the women were driving away from the airport in a red Honda, an officer pulled them over. Police issued one of the women a citation for failing to change her address on her driver’s license and having no front license plate.

The FBI and the Dallas Police Department said they consider the women potentially dangerous and issued a crime bulletin in February of this year. Despite that, neither has been arrested or charged with any crime.

Al-Homsi said she is Syrian and is sympathetic to the Palestinian people. Both women said they disagree with the United States’ Middle East policy.

“I don’t like the government,” Al-Homsi said. “The American people, no problem.”

“I think they stick their nose in business where it doesn’t belong,” Hamad said.

The women said they have been questioned by the FBI more than a dozen times and believe they are the subjects of the persecution of Muslim women.

The government insists they are a potential danger.

It sounds not unlike the “flying imams.”

“When she got off the car, I noticed that she did have fatigues on and matched the description of what police had mentioned to us a week or so before,” he said.

Why should anyone be suspicious of Muslim women wearing fatigues?

Road Rage Incident Leads To Apparent Grenade Threat

December 21, 2005

GARLAND, Texas — Garland police arrested a woman, Kimberly Al Homsi, after receiving a report she used a hand grenade to threaten another driver in a case of possible road rage.

Investigators said the incident started in Richardson, where a witness called police to report the threat. The witness said the woman brandished what looked like a grenade, pulled the pin and indicated she was going to throw the device at him.

Al Homsi was pulled over in Garland, and police said they found what appeared to be three grenades and two ammunition pouches inside the vehicle.

The bomb squad arrived at the scene and determined the grenades were inoperable.

"This motorist could have thought that he was going to have a live grenade tossed at him. He could have taken some kind of action that could have led to a wreck up there on Central Expressway and several people could have ended up dying as a result of this," said Sgt. Kevin Perlich with the Richardson Police Department.

Police said the weapons were not illegal and they can only charge Al Homsi with threatening a driver with the grenade.

Clearly she has been the victim of blatant and vicious racial profiling.
