Thanks to the Rottweiler for the heads-up on this one.
Students on the bus became alarmed, as did the bus driver, who called ahead. Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies met the bus at the school and detained the men. No one was injured and nothing out of line occurred on the bus, deputies said.
Yep. Nothing to see here. Pretty much the same response as the crack security staff at Boston’s Logan Intl Airport. Pay no attention to the towels atop the heads or the box cutters in the pockets of these fine gentlemen.
But never fear, the Saudis are our friends! You know, the kind of friends that slaughter 3,000 of us to glorify their elephant god – or whatever it is they call the mythical being that guides their jihadi slaughter.
What was their excuse for hopping on a school bus for their Beslan dry run? They had several.
“We’re not sure if this was a situation of them just being new to this country, or if they were confused or what it was,” Callaway said. “We were unsure as to exactly what the final reason was, but it did cause great concern for the students on the bus and for us. One of the guys was wearing shorts with a black trench coat.”
While on the bus, the men laughed and spoke in Arabic, Callaway said.
Ahmed Bedier, Tampa director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said the men likely meant no harm and that because “they were from Saudi Arabia, that escalated the situation.”
He blamed the incident on cultural differences.
“They didn’t differentiate between a school bus and public transportation,” he said.
Almanajam and Alsidran at first told deputies they were from Morocco, but later admitted being from Saudi Arabia, deputies said. They said they were enrolled at the English Language Institute at the University of South Florida.
Lucky for them, lying in the pursuit of jihad is fully sanctioned by their so-called holy book, so no foul there.
Even though reports are that these two goat-humpers have had their bail revoked and that they remain in custody, I’m certain that the doormats at the Dept of Homeland Security will let them go as soon as the first phone call comes in from the human debris at CAIR. I can hear the phone ringing now.
