WARD CHURCHILL AND AL QAEDA: PERFECT TOGETHER 

Bronx man who pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda hoped to buy Ward Churchill's DVD


Tarik Ibn Osman Shah: Admirer of Osama bin Laden and Colorado prof Ward Churchill

Two men, a New York jazz musician and a physician from Florida were arrested for trying to organize an American-based effort to aid Al Qaeda. The allegation of a conspiracy to aid the terrorist group is frightening, indeed. In an interesting highlight of the case, the New York Post reported that one of them seemed to be interested in the works, words and ideas of infamous University of Colorado professor, Ward Churchill.

Shah's silver Chevrolet Impala was parked outside his Bronx apartment yesterday. In the back seat was a reminder to buy a DVD of Ward Churchill, the Colorado professor who called 9/11 victims "little Eichmanns."


The staff, faculty and administration of the University of Colorado must surely be proud to see that one of their own has become a role model for a man who has pledged to kill his fellow Americans.

How do Churchill defenders continue to support a man who celebrates the deaths of 3,000 of his countrymen? How does a university expect to maintain its reputation as a serious institution of learning but continuing to employ a man who provides aid and comfort to those who pledge to destroy the United States of America?

Colorado taxpayers and parents of university students there should be wondering how they are paying and subsidizing a "professor" whose "stellar academic credentials" are recognized even as far away as Al Qaeda training camps. Instead of paying $125 a pop for a DVD, maybe Tarik Ibn Osman Shah should have audited Churchill's classes instead.

Other blog reporting: Tall Glass of Milk at "Drink This..." is on the story.

PS: Shah, a jazz musician also indicated that his musical profession was a good front to keeping up an innocent appearance.

The Bronx man, the son of a Malcolm X lieutenant, then turned to the agent and said, "I could be joking and smiling and then cutting their throats in the next second," the complaint said. Shah, a professional jazz bassist, brought along his instrument "so as not to bring attention to himself." Being a musician was a great cover, he said. [NYPOST]
