There’s a pattern here.
A judge on Tuesday said Kimberly “Asma” Al-Homsi, 45, and an 18-year-old friend would remain in jail until tried on charges related to the possession of several pipe bombs.
Al-Homsi and Yasinul Alan Ansari, 18, both of Arlington, appeared in a Tarrant County federal court Tuesday afternoon before Magistrate Judge Charles Bleil following their arrest after being pulled over at the end of a police pursuit Saturday.
Bleil said at Tuesday’s hearing that the pair must remain in jail because they are a flight risk. They are charged with a single count each of intentionally possessing an unregistered firearm — in this case a destructive device, the materials for pipe bombs.
During the hearing, federal authorities told Bleil that Al-Homsi has told them during questioning after their arrest that the pair made three pipe bombs out of materials, including ball bearings, purchased February 6 and 7 at Home Depot and Academy Sports and Outdoors.
Al-Homsi waived her rights during that questioning, authorities said.
……About 5 p.m. Saturday, a motorist called 911 from State Highway 360 in Arlington to report that someone in a pickup had pointed a weapon at him in an apparent road-rage incident on West Abram Street.
Police found the truck and tried to pull it over, but the driver did not stop. The pursuit ended in Fort Worth after the truck carrying the pair hit ice at Rosedale Street near Loop 820. One of the pair told officers there was an “incendiary device” in the truck, authorities have said.
……Authorities found three pipes containing black powder which were detonated by bomb technicians, authorities said. The gun inside the truck was a toy, authorities said.
……In 2005, Al-Homsi waved a fake grenade at a motorist on Central Expressway during a road-rage incident. She was put on probation for having a hoax bomb.
That probation was revoked after July 2007, when she was arrested after a six-hour police standoff at her Arlington home and accused of having a pipe fashioned into an illegal firearm. Police also found black powder, shotgun shells, pipes and putty.
On several occasions, also in 2007, Al-Homsi and a friend were seen conducting what appeared to be surveillance at Dallas Love Field and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. They were clad in traditional Muslim garb with camouflage pants underneath during at least one of the incidents.
Al- Homsi has also claimed a friendship with Wadih el Hage, a former Arlington resident and former personal secretary of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. He received a life sentence for his part in a bombing conspiracy.
Ok, let’s recap:
1. The little bitch and her friend have demonstrated a habit of terrorist activites, including bomb-making.
2. She’s been arrested on previous charges related to those activities.
3. They surveilled DFW airport, a transportation hub that services thousands of flights and passengers each day.
4. And this is a very important common denominator: They’re MUSLIM.
How many times does this have to happen before the Dallas authorities keep them in jail for good?
