Video: 9/11 hijacker yuks it up on martyrdom tape

posted at 3:11 pm on November 23, 2008 by Allahpundit

Not for the first time, either. You’ll remember this turd as Mohammed Atta’s co-star, guffawing his way through another video discovered by the Times of London two years ago. Evidently AQ saves its blooper reels.

Jarrah is in a sense the most important hijacker because he deviates furthest from the crude stereotype of jihadis that many westerners have: Not poor, not uneducated, not from Saudi Arabia, not alienated from his family, not pathologically neurotic about women, not even surly in his demeanor judging from the tapes. Just a boy with a dream to kill people for Allah, and sufficiently committed to it that he was willing to shoot videos anticipating his own suicide years in advance. As a college student, he allegedly liked going to discos; five years later, he steered Flight 93 into the ground. If you believe MI5, there are literally thousands more like him inside the UK as I write this.

Needless to say, he also represents a huge hole in Trutherism. As the least likely of the 19 to have been involved in the plot, he was always a prime candidate for mistaken identity theories. At least, until he started showing up in these clips.

You’re right Allah, a turd, flushed straight to hell.

And on the Continent, in the U.S., Canada, Australia, etc. They’re all over the world. They know they can’t defeat us in actual warfare, so they wage a breeding war. Once they become the majority, they’ll attack.

There are holes IN THE GROUND that put “Trooferism” to rest. I almost forgot about those idiots. I wonder if they’ll demand answers from The Chosen One?

Too bad he can’t be killed twice.

SoulGlo on November 23, 2008 at 3:33 PM

The detail that this maniac “steered Flight 93 into the groundis not exactly the facts.

The passengers caused the plane to come down, ultimately.

To save their fellow countrymen and women.

Scum like this steered nothing, at that moment.

But a lifelong dream of being dead.

A pity a camel didn’t kick him in the morbid head twenty years earlier and save us all his active malignancy.

profitsbeard on November 23, 2008 at 3:34 PM

Yeah, I thought that phrasing was weird too.

lorien1973 on November 23, 2008 at 3:35 PM

This demonstrates that it doesn’t really take a lot of “radicalization” to turn a so-called moderate Muslim into a jihadist. Those who truly believe in Islam are already 90% there.

RedWinged Blackbird on November 23, 2008 at 3:36 PM

They`ll just get some other obscure piece of “evidence” they found on the net, pull it over to fill the hole.

You can never and will never convince them that we didn`t do this ourselves.

Oh, that’s right. We can talk about that now, after the election has been won.

I’m reminded of the excellent line from that ONN clip where the fictional Hamas or Al Quida spokesman refers to the 9/11 conspiracy theorists:

It’s like talking to a goat!

shick on November 23, 2008 at 3:42 PM

Is that some sort of surprise? There are at least tens of millions of them worldwide, and it will never stop until we scrub the planet clean of Islam. I’m sorry, but this is just the way it is. I know, I know, most Muslims are “peaceful”, but that’s because they are not true Muslims. I’m not trying to be all “nuke Mecca”, I’m just stating the obvious. As long as Islam is around, and there are true followers, things ain’t gettin’ any better. Have you seen the children in the videos from Memri, linked to from this very site? And what was that special that PBS pulled a couple of years ago, but it then ran on Fox, revealing a lot of sad truths that the western world pretends don’t exist.

At any rate, my real anger lies with NBC and that obnoxious “green” logo they’re using this week as they “go green” and “green your routine”. Oh just STFU. You were exposed for your insane hypocrisy last time, why make us go through this again… especially when man-made “climate change”/”global warming” is essentially completely debunked at this point.

RightWinged on November 23, 2008 at 3:43 PM

Does anyone else get the feeling that MSNBC kinda dressed up this video?

I mean, this guy is well below the 200 thread count of Egyptian Cotton, and I sure there’s plenty more like him that want to get on a episode of Uncle Osama Springer show. You know, the show where the best catch phrase is, “I’m gonna only show you this once”, and then blow up.

What is this guy, the Homer Simpson of Jihad?

Kini on November 23, 2008 at 3:44 PM

Under the heading “International Terrorism”, the report, which is marked “restricted” states:

Restricted? With a long leash?

Kini on November 23, 2008 at 3:51 PM

At the beginning of the piece did you catch this from the reporter.
“He will be forever remembered as the 9/11 hijacker who deliberately flew a passenger jet into an empty field in Pennsylvania

Subtle, nuanced, freaking idiot. At the end they do mention that the passengers did storm the cockpit. I don’t think he deliberately flew a jet into the empty field.

Just A Grunt on November 23, 2008 at 3:59 PM

Not poor, not uneducated, not from Saudi Arabia, not alienated from his family, not pathologically neurotic about women, not even surly in his demeanor judging from the tapes.

Just a good Muslim. When in doubt, read what the Koran says. This current resident of hell’s viewpoint of what Mohammed said is perfectly orthodox for Muslims.

BuzzCrutcher on November 23, 2008 at 4:12 PM

What is damning about this video is when it was made. Namely, before the evil Bush had even taken office.

Del Dolemonte on November 23, 2008 at 4:19 PM

Funny, isn’t it?

The Democrats under Bill Clinton did everything in their power to close their eyes to this threat…….

President George W. Bush new it was real, and took the fight to them, and for the past eight years, the left has been screaming like a stuck pig in every effort that we have tried to catch them, i.e. following the money, and surveillance.

Now, it looks like Mr. Obama, President Elect, the Office of is filling his staff and cabinet with Clintonistas……..

You know that far of laughter you are hearing………….. yeah, it’s AQ, and every other enemy of freedom that the United States has.

RightWinged,

Do you not realize your rhetoric easily leads to what you currently claim to disavow as a means to fulfill what your saying?

Maybe dial it down a bit and let’s deal with what is actually possible, in the real world?

aikidoka on November 23, 2008 at 5:43 PM

I am not sure where I heard this:

We (Americans) think in years.

They (Radical Islamists) think in 100′s of years.

Just so say, they take their time. Their domination has no clock.

Gird your loins east-coasters cuz when they hit after Bambi is sworn in, it’ll be another familiar target. I’m glad I live in fly-over country.

And just watch the Anti-American/Pro-Jihadi Delusional Traitor Democratic Moron Nutbag Leftists (all redunant terms, I know…), who twisted themselves into pretzels blaming 9/11 on Bush, even though it was conceinved, planned, funded, implemented and set in motion during Clinton’s “watch” as a driect result of Clinton’s, Clarke’s, Zinni’s, Berger’s, and Tenet’s malfeaseance and crimes against the American people; when a major attack happens on Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s (PBUH)(SWT)(SAW) “watch”; it will be…..ta ta ta da….BUSH’S FAULT!

Yep, you got it!

Dale in Atlanta on November 23, 2008 at 6:08 PM

To echo Profitsbeard,it was the brave passengers on flight
93 who took destiny out of the hands of the Jihadys,and
denied them of their own sacrifice to their sick and twisted
G-D Allah!

It seems MSNBC is engaging in revisionist history,it was the
brave young men and women of flight 93 who bravely did what
needed to be done,and the phrase that lives on till this day,

“Let’s Roll”!
——————————————————-

Their is a War on the west,by Persia(Iran)ever since the
1979,when the Iranian’s seized the American Embassey,and
took Americans as hostages!

—It is an act of War!

The Beirut Soldiers barracks bombings,in which hundreds of
American Soldiers were murdered!

–It is an act of War!

The attack on U.S.S Stark,a lot of Navy personneal were
killed!

–It is an act of War!

The attack of USS Cole,a number of sailors were killed
and injured!

–It was an act of War!

Improvised road side bombs in Irag by the Iranian’s have
killed,injured,and mutilated US Military Soldiers!

–It is an act of War!

The bombing of the Embassey in Africa!

–Its an act of War!

The truck bomb in the 1st attack of the world trade Centre!

–its an act of War!

The attack,and collaspe of the Trade centres,1,2 and 3,over
3,000 dead,injured and un-accounted for!

–Its an act of War,and should of had a tactical Nuclear
weapon retalitory strike!
———————————————————

This isn’t the work of poor,uneducated,stupid Jihadys,
its State Sponsered well trained and funded attacks on
the United States of America!!!

And it all points straight back to Iran,just ask Israel!!

Thanks goodness the wisdom of the majority of Americans has placed Obama Hussein, Murtha, Pelosi, Reid, Clinton and the rest of the worst our political systems has embraced, to stand between us and these sociopaths that wish to murder us and die for their sociopathic prophet.

The umbrella of security and freedom we have taken for granted under President Bush will soon be retired to the dustbin of history, ushering in an era of Liberal reasoning with the monster now armed with nukes.

May God protect us.

Hening on November 23, 2008 at 6:21 PM

If only we had more money for education and AIDS research to combat the global warming which feeds these racial stereotypes that promote misunderstanding between cultures which lead to unnecessary violence like the tragedy of 9/11 and the plight of the homeless.

keep the change on November 23, 2008 at 6:29 PM

The reason there are many more of these terrorists in Britain was the result of liberal British policy that said to the jihadis you can fester in Britain as long as you want so long as you only attack our allies, the USA, Italy, Europe, Israel, everyone but Great Britain is fair game. Of course the jihadis said yes, (taqqiya what a wonderful doctrine) and planned all sorts of evil from safety in Britain. Now it is probably too late for the British, but you accept this untreatable infection in your bosom and you should not be surprised when you’re only a cadaver.

What I realize, is that your run on sentence makes absolutely no sense to me. Seriously, I would respond but I honestly don’t know what you were saying.

As for the “real world”, that’s exactly where I live, which is why I simply stated the obvious about the current situation we’re in. I wasn’t advocating scrubbing the planet of Islam, because that’s stupidly impossible, I was simply stating that this would be the only way to end these problems.

Sorry, but running this tape is in bad taste and slaps the 9/11/01 atrocity victims around for the sake of ratings. I’d rather see reminders of the heroes of Flight 93 not NBC furthering the propaganda of Al Qaeda.

highhopes on November 23, 2008 at 9:13 PM

Well, well, well, we’ve found a line that even Bill Ayres won’t cross. In an interview for the “Portland Alliance” (a left-wing paper in Oregon), editor Marlena Gangi asks Mr. Ayres:

On November 4, it became clear that the Republican inspired neo-McCarthyism and post 9/11 rhetoric of fear proved unsuccessful. Seven years after an attack by Muslim freedom fighters, the U.S. elected to the presidency a Black man who’s middle name is Hussein. Did this surprise you?

Ayres responded:

I don’t recall any “attacks by Muslim freedom fighters,” but rather crimes against humanity carried out in the service of an arid and crypto-fascist ideology— nothing nice.”

Ms. Gangi’s e-mail address is given in the article, if you would like to pursue a dialogue with her about the “Muslim freedom fighters” of September 11th.

texaninfidel on November 23, 2008 at 10:01 PM

It does seem as if MSNBC is trying to humanize this “turd”. As if we need to understand better so they won’t be so angry all the time.

Hello McFly…. they have been angry forever and that’s unlikely to change. The only thing these people understand is violence and the occasional rap across the nose to remind them that they are not untouchable. Remember the past or be doomed to repeat it.

Old time TV reporters were American first. Not this bunch on MSNBC. Their sympathy for this waste of oxygen does not surprise me. They either unwittingly or willingly betrayed their country in this election by helping to put a unvetted, inexperienced community organizer in office.

TexasDan on November 23, 2008 at 10:46 PM

The Koran’s sanctified intolerance is the source of all Jihad, “benign” or malignant.

Until its (misogynistic, irrationalistioc, despotic) ideology is countered with freedom of conscience’s strength, it invades the West as unopposed as a dry rot.

The first leader in the larger community of nations who is willing to say what Geert Wilders in little Holland dares to say about Mohammadism, will end the post 9/11 sleepwalk.

The mythic Religion of Peace3 will Rest in Peace.

And the age-old expansionistic tyranny of theocratic Islamic imperialism will reappear.

A danger by its dogma, not its members.

Muslims are the first and worst victims of Islam.

May a debunked Koran free them all.

And us of it.

profitsbeard on November 23, 2008 at 11:19 PM

eaglewing208,
So here in the U.K our plan is to allow terrorists to kill our allies!

Really? When your country was attacked on 9/11 you had immediate support.
Genuine sorrow,people qued for hours to sign books of condolances , gave money ,prayed.

Shoulder to shoulder -remember?
Afghanistan and Iraq, we have lost loved ones as well.
Did no one bother to report the events on 7/7 . No?

If you want to talk about supporting terrorism against your ‘closest allie’.
May i draw your attention to the 30 year funding and political support of irish terrorists ,who with american donation’s blew up british and irish civilians.

That was a version of taqqiya.

No. The cockpit recorder tapes and flight recorder suggest that Jarrah pushed the nose down when it became clear that the passengers were about to take the cockpit. He didn’t want them to gain control of the airplane. If he couldn’t crash into DC, at least he could kill an airliner full of Americans. Better than nothing.
