Gail Gartrell, Great-Aunt to Sarah and Amina Said, Receiving New Death Threats

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

I spoke with Gail Gartrell, Great-Aunt to Sarah and Amina Said, and she advised me that she is once again receiving death threats concerning her speaking out against the “honor” killing deaths of her great nieces.

Amina and Sarah Said

The latest one is from a person purporting himself to Islam, Sarah and Amina’s brother. There is no solid proof of this, and most likely it isn’t Islam. Anyway, if you wish to see the threat, it’s at www.myspace.com/521252099.

Gail told us, “This is a fatwa issued on my life. Yes, the woman in this is me! It must have been taken on a paused TV as it is a picture of me when I did the FOX “Murder in the Family/ Honor killing in America.” It looks as though he paused the TV and took this picture of me!”

I have over 500 threats on my life since I called their murders, honor killings! Even so, I do not fear them! Fear, is what they use as weapons, as do all terrorists! So, I have lived my life without much care of these threats.

I just went to the site and here are some of the comments from the author of the Myspace page. Each is associated with an uploaded photo, so I have included a description of the photo for reference:

Photoshopped picture of Gail and terrorist with a gun pointed at her: “gail go run to the cops b***** or the ((((F.B.I.)))) they will not save you (((LOL)))”

Photoshopped picture of Gail and terrorist with a gun pointed at her: “we will get you and the two mexican killer that shot and murer amina and sarah said, and we will not stop and will not rest))))”

Picture of German Shepherd: “we will show you gail you will pay for it its not over”

Picture of German Shepherd: “kill gail owens”

Picture of a rifle similar to an “AK-47”: “my new baby this is for you gail and the two mexican killer”

There are more pictures, but they do not seem to be direct threats against Gail.

Here are some of the “friend” comments:

“gall you f****** day is coming”

“you need to get a life and move on. yaser was good to you and amina and sarah>>>so you run a way whith two mexican killer naw you are alon all by you self and no one give a s*** about you or anina and sarah we will fight for yaser to the death. and you know it so just go buy a gun and kill you sllf so you can see anina and sarah in hell” [This comment seems to be aimed at Patricia, the girl’s mother]

“yaser will pot you 6 fee under like the dog you are>>>>death to america and death F.B.I. we are not like you we are one hand and if you will one of us we will not rest at all we will fight to death 9-11 was good day you all you one more day like it” [This comment seems to be aimed at Patricia, the girl’s mother]

“First of all your sisters are not b****** they are angels you need to respect amina and sarah they are in heaven the place where your murder dad will not go your said uncles need to stop brain washing u and get you help your day will pay for murdering amina and sarah and you better stop threatening me because iam not scared of you or the said family something else yaser is a muslim murder and no he is not a good man” [This appears to a comment from Patricia, the girl’s mother]

“death to america”

As distasteful as these comments are, I felt they should be recorded, as most likely, this site will be taken down soon.

Please continue to pray for Gail.

    Feds Issue Terror Watch for the Texas/Mexico Border

    Thursday, May 27th, 2010

    We can’t illegal aliens out of our country, so how on earth do they expect to catch a specific person?
    This is exactly why we need to secure our entire border and enforce all of our immigration laws.

    The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com.

    The warning follows an indictment unsealed this month in Texas federal court that accuses a Somali man in Texas of running a “large-scale smuggling enterprise” responsible for bringing hundreds of Somalis from Brazil through South America and eventually across the Mexican border. Many of the illegal immigrants, who court records say were given fake IDs, are alleged to have ties to other now-defunct Somalian terror organizations that have merged with active organizations like Al Shabaab, al-Barakat and Al-Ittihad Al-Islami.

    In 2008, the U.S. government designated Al Shabaab a terrorist organization. Al Shabaab has said its priority is to impose Sharia, or Islamic law, on Somalia; the group has aligned itself with Al Qaeda and has made statements about its intent to harm the United States.

    In recent years, American Somalis have been recruited by Al Shabaab to travel to Somalia, where they are often radicalized by more extremist or operational anti-American terror groups, which Al Shabaab supports. The recruiters coming through the Mexican border are the ones who could be the most dangerous, according to law enforcement officials.

    Security experts tell FOXNews.com that the influx of hundreds of Somalis over the U.S. border who allegedly have ties to suspected terror cells is evidence of a porous and unsecured border being exploited by groups intent on wrecking deadly havoc on American soil.

    Congress Set for Landmark Vote on Lifting Military Gay Ban

    Thursday, May 27th, 2010

    A sad day for our military.

    Today both the Senate and House plan a vote to repeal the 1993 law, which has often been mislabeled as “don’t ask, don’t tell” but actually states that homosexuals are not eligible to serve in the military. Some conservative groups have suggested the White House has employed “Chicago-style politics” and backroom tactics in an attempt to ram the measure through while Democrats hold the majority on Capitol Hill — a majority some suggest may evaporate come November.

    Richard Thompson is president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, which is encouraging responsible members of Congress not to vote for any bill — regardless of its language — that has as its aim the ultimate repeal of the ban.

    “It’s going to be close,” the attorney says of the pending vote. “There are people who are switching sides — people who we thought were going to vote against the repeal have changed their mind, and some who are on the fence are now going to vote against repeal. So there is a lot of fluctuation going on.”

    Very Severe Hurricane Seasons Ahead, Say U.S. Top Scientists

    Thursday, May 27th, 2010

    We sure hope this isn’t true.

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued it’s 2010 hurricane season forecast, and the agency is predicting a doozy.

    Hurricane season for the western Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico begins June 1 and lasts through Nov. 30. That’s when about 90 percent of the storms make themselves present, and the predictions for this season are grim — which could wreak further havoc on the Gulf coast.

    NOAA’s forecast predicts as many as 23 named storms during the Atlantic hurricane season, with 3 to 7 becoming serious enough to merit names. This jibes with earlier predictions of a severe hurricane season from Accuweather and scientists at Colorado State.

    “It’s going to be a bigger than average hurricane season and it’s going to start sooner,” Accuweather’s Joe Bastardi told FoxNews.com in early May. And Colorado State University meteorologists Philip Klotzbach and William Gray also predict rough weather in their extended-range hurricane forecast.

    NOAA reports that this could be “one of the more active seasons on record.”

    BP’s ‘Top Kill’ Effort to Plug Oil Spill in Gulf Reportedly Working

    Thursday, May 27th, 2010

    It looks like the latest attempt to kill the well in gulf is working.

    BP’s “top kill” operation halted the flow of oil and gas from the stricken Deepwater Horizon rig Thursday, according to U.S. Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen, cited in the Los Angeles Times.

    Allen, who is coordinating the government response to the oil spill, said Thursday that engineers had succeeded in stopping the flow of oil and gas into the Gulf of Mexico from the BP well.

    Allen said the engineers had pumped enough drilling fluid to block all oil and gas from the well. The pressure from the well was very low, but persists, he added.

    If the risky procedure stops the flow, BP will then inject cement into the well to seal it. The top kill has worked above ground but has never before been tried 5,000 feet beneath the sea. BP pegged its chance of success at 60 to 70 percent.

    “We’re doing everything we can to bring it to closure, and actually we’re executing this top kill job as efficiently and effectively as we can,” BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said.
