Al Qaeda Terrorists' Plans for Oregon As a training Camp

Nadene Goldfoot
Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, alias Abu Hamza al-Masri is a 54 year old  Egyptian Imam (preacher)  who has been charged  for multiple terror plots, among them conspiring to set up a terrorist training camp right here in Oregon. One of the counts the USA wants him for was in connection with James Thompson alias an Earnest James Ujaama,  "in an attempt to establish a terrorist training camp in late 1999 and early 2000 near Bly, Klamath County,Oregon and of providing aid to al-Qaeda."  Bly is 44 miles east of Klamath Falls, Oregon with a small population of about 486.  This central southern Oregon potential training camp was fortunately found out about before it was too late.

 Forty-six year old Ujamma was born in Denver, Colorado but moved at age 5 to Seattle, Washington and converted to Islam.  Harry Reid had honored him as a special person around 1994.  "Ujaama also traveled to Afghanistan in 1999 to study Sharia and offer his support to al-Qaeda, according to family friends."In 2002 Ujaama was arrested and indicted for conspiring to create this training camp on a ranch between October and December of 1999.  He had been a follower of Masri so both had ties to al Qaeda and the Taliban.  Oussama Kassier was convicted in helping to create this camp in May 2009.

Kassier was born in Beirut, Lebanon and immigrated to Stockholm,  Sweden in 1984, and became a citizen in 1989.  He had fought in the Lebanese civil war in 1980's and was injured. This terrorist was a supporter of Osama bin Laden and said he loved both al Qaeda and bin Laden.  He also did not follow Sweden's laws and spent 10 months in prison for having guns, attacking a policeman and for drugs.   "Kassir was arrested in Prague, Czech Republic, while on his way to Beirut, on December 11, 2005, on a warrant filed by United States federal prosecutors. He was charged with conspiring to support terrorism by traveling from London to Bly, Oregon in 1999 to help set up a jihad training camp.

He preached militant jihad and followed Islamic fundamentalism of the militant ideology.  He is a citizen and convict from Great Britain, having married an English girl to do this and was in prison in England in 2004.  He's a person who supports al-Qaeda. Also, this "father-of-eight Abu Hamza had so far cost Britain £2.75 million in welfare payments, council housing and legal costs."

"In sentencing, Mr Justice Hughes said Mustafa or Hamza al Masri had "helped to create an atmosphere in which to kill has become regarded by some as not only a legitimate course but a moral and religious duty in pursuit of perceived justice."Abu Hamza al Masri  was sentenced to seven years' imprisonment.

Mustafa lost both his hands and an eye he says while in Afghanistan fighting the Russians. He said it was from a mining project there.  Was he planting land mines?   He will be outfitted by the USA government with new prosthetic arms to replace the hooks he used before, commented his lawyer in New York, even though he has been imprisoned in Britain on charges since 2004. These prosthetics cost anywhere from about $5,000 to $50,000.   His Finsbury Park Mosque in London was a training ground for extremist Islamists.    Why are we giving him these prosthetics?  "Mustafa Kamel Mustafa needs all the help he can get while at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan awaiting trial, attorney Jeremy Schneider said after a hearing."

"This case is way bigger than anyone was led to believe a couple of weeks ago,” said Jeremy Schneider, a lawyer who was appointed to represent Mr. Hamza/Masri .'  This remark comes with Masri's request for more lawyers which the judge granted.   A two-month long trial of Masri is to take place on August 26, 2013.  The delay is because he's serving the 7 year sentence in th UK right now.
