A terrorist mall plot: “I swear by Allah

I just got back from a trip to the mall to see the headlines about the alleged Chicago terrorist mall plot:

ABC News has learned a Chicago-area man has been charged with plotting a terrorist attack.

Derrick Shareef, of Rockford, Ill was arrested Wednesday by the Joint Terrorism Taskforce when he met an undercover agent to trade hand grenades and a 9-millimeter handgun for a set of stereo speakers.

Shareef is accused of planning to use firearms and explosives to attack the CherryVale shopping mall in Rockford. The alleged plan was to target the 130-store mall during the holiday shopping season.

In September, Shareef became acquainted with a confidential witness who was cooperating with the FBI and confided to him that he wanted to commit acts of violent jihad against civilians.

On December 2, Shareef and the confidential source made video tapes of their last wills and testament.

On the video, Shareef again mentions jihad and says, “This is a warning to those who disbelieve, that we are here for you and I am ready to give my life.”

Allah’s been on the story since lunchtime. Also tracking: Dan Riehl and John Little.

The Smoking Gun has the affidavit of would-be violent jihadist Derrick Shareef.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen a shopping mall terrorist plotter nabbed on American soil. Remember Nuradin M. Abdi in Ohio? Flashback June 2004 (here’s the indictment):

Do you know how the alleged “shopping-mall” bomber entered our country? He didn’t cross the border illegally. He didn’t sneak in on a ship. He came through the front door at America’s invitation.

Nuradin M. Abdi, who was indicted last week for plotting with al Qaeda to blow up an Ohio shopping mall, flew here from Somalia and received bogus “refugee” status in 1999, according to authorities. Prosecutors allege that Abdi then fraudulently obtained a refugee travel document, which he used to fly to Ethiopia for jihad training. After returning, Abdi blended back into the American landscape along with tens of thousands of other refugees from a country known to be a breeding ground for Islamic terrorists. Columbus, Abdi’s home base, is home to more than 30,000 Somalis — the second-largest Somali community in the United States, after Minneapolis.

From the affidavit, Shareef is quoted detailing his plans to kill Jews and infidels in his neighborhood after the Israel-Hezbollah conflict over the summer:

Shareef mulled over a plan to go jihad at a courthouse or other government buildling:

After casing the CherryVale Shopping Center and discussing explosive devices, Shareef discussed the impact of grenades planted in mall garbage cans:

He taped a video last will and testament:

Reports are, of course, quick to stress that accused jihadi Shareef allegedly acted as a “lone wolf.”

He is not alone.

“Lone wolves” who believe in violent jihad add up.
