Florida Muslim Sami Osmakac Arrested in Plot to Bomb Crowded Mall (Video)

25-year-old Sami Osmakac from the former Yugoslavia was charged with plotting a radical Islamic attack on crowded locations around Tampa, Florida.
WPTV reported:

FOX News reported:

A 25-year-old man described as an Islamic extremist was arrested in an alleged plot to attack crowded areas in the Tampa, Fla., area with a car bomb, assault rifle and other explosives, authorities said Monday.

The U.S. Department of Justice said Sami Osmakac, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in the former Yugoslavia, was arrested Saturday night.

Osmakac, from Pinellas County, allegedly told an undercover agent that “We all have to die, so why not die the Islamic way?'” according to a federal complaint

FBI agents arrested Osmakac on Saturday after he allegedly bought explosive devices and firearms from an undercover agent. The firearms and explosives were rendered inoperable by law enforcement. The federal complaint says that shortly before his arrest, Osmakac made a video of himself explaining his motives for carrying out the planned violent attack.

He has been charged with one count of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. His first appearance in federal court is scheduled for Monday at 2 p.m. ET.

    If this Islamist is being charged with “attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction”, how can anyone in their right minds say Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction?

    Did the definition change?

  • it can’t be true he is a member of the religion of peace. i know, the star-ledger told me so.

  • Patty

    This young man has some serious mental and emotional problems, undoubtedly. How he could get so close to killing innocent Americans in the first place. We have been lucky we have been able to stop this madness. Many more like him who are intent on blowing up anything or everything they can and their youth must have been tragic to come to this horrible desire to kill human beings.

    Would love to know his friends and the family life he has been influenced by or those who saw the warning signs. This is something that may get to the crust of the hate and anger he has in his heart for America.

    Yes it’s called Islam.

  • Campfollower

    So a dirty looking white guy with a scruffy beard can be an Islamist terror plotter in addition to an Occupy retard! Wow, this must mean that I’m not racist any more.

    Thank you FBI. You are doing some things right!

  • Remco Kiber

    Man, these mosks and their imams are doing one piss-poor job of teaching their muslim congregants on the tenets of islam.

    Here we have yet ANOTHER muslim who misunderstands his religion so fundamentally. islam is said to teach peace, but muslims repeatedly keep learning the lesson of kill.

    They must not be using the Mohommed ™ authorized version of the koran,

  • Paz

    Another patsy, just like the Time Square guy.


  • Patty

    I am just saying there were others who had suspicions before this guy was arrested. I am not just speaking recently and the FBI tips. I am talking about his youth and who has encouraged this monster.

    Islam, yes, but deeper reasons and a background. Some people could have stopped this guy sooner. That is just something weighing on my mind.

  • bigL

    Better chechnya-proof the schools. Some teachers better be carrying weapons. tickticktick. Creeps have to be right once but oh how I’d like for our side to win this one…they try to take over or bomb and are riddled with bullets.

  • eurw

    what a shock…. and how many ‘refugees’ did the clinton admin bring to the states? how many more like this one

  • HadEnough

    Did he have any of those beer drinking, gun toting Veterans like DHS and DOJ warn us about???…..What a homegrown Islamist that is a MUSLIM!!!!!!….no such thing……we’ll let him go……….

  • Patty

    Someone had to be aware of this young man during his time in school, parents, friends any acquaintance of his. Because if this hadn’t been stopped the media once again would be interviewing his friends and some would tell you he was a menace way before this.

    That is what I have been trying to say. Look at Loughner.

  • Campfollower

    After watching the video of this guy, it’s obvious he’s taken the linguistic characteristics of young, white hip hop wannabes. Add the arabic. What a creepy mix. Wonder how old he was when he came to the U.S.? He’s got a background sort of like….the president.

    What 2012 could mean to America’s Muslim Brotherhood

    [America’s Muslim Brotherhood, an increasingly active and well-funded
    organization designed to subvert the U.S. Constitution in favor of a
    Saudi-style Shariah government, must be very concerned about the
    2012 presidential election.

    That’s because two leading GOP presidential candidates have both
    indicated its tentacles and front groups, including the Council on
    American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, should be investigated for their
    ties to terrorism and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Those two candidates are Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich ]

    He noted that the three politicians’ campaign war chests are
    heavily funded by radical Islamists who support the mosque.

  • Formerly known as Skeptic

    #1 Sam Stone: “Did the definition change?” Yes and no. On the international front, Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) still refers only to Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical (NBC) weapons. However, somewhere along the way, domestic lawmakers started applying the term “weapon of mass destruction” to any device which can cause multiple injuries/fatalities, generally explosives. They have, in effect, defined the term down. What exactly we would charge someone with if they attempted to use nerve gas or a radiological (dirty) bomb escapes me.

    We have now uncovered many of these Islamic terrorists, and we have incurred significant losses attributable to them, including 9/11, Ft. Hood, etc. They have nearly crippled our air transportation industry, and they cause us to incur very expensive and inconvenient defensive actions at all airports around the entire world.

    When it comes to evaluating risk, we deal with two main concerns. The first is the likelihood of an occurrence and the second is the significance of an occurrence. We now know that Islamic terrorists are very likely to strike against us as they have done so many times in the past. The significance of their attacks ranges from horrendous (9/11) to horrible (Ft. Hood). We know they seek to detonate nuclear devices in American cities, but like Pearl Harbor, we continue on in denial and we are once again asleep at the wheel.

    The only question we next need to address is if we are able to distinguish between the “ok” Muslims and the “bad” Muslims. I would submit that we presently have no reliable means to distinguish between them and therefore we must isolate all of them, discriminate against all of them, and totally stop them from immigrating to the US.

    Until we provide the “ok” Muslims with a negative consequence for failing to police their own community, they will continue to passively foster Jihad against us. Make no mistake, the Muslims are NOT good people by and large. If they were, they would publicly express embarrassment and horror at all of the Islamic terrorism. Has anyone ever seen such behavior on their part? If they were as pious as they present themselves to be, they would take strong actions in their own communities to eradicate this problem.

    Until we develop some means to distinguish between the large number of terrorists and the “ok” Muslims, we should take strong actions against them all before we find ourselves one day with a large smoking radioactive crater where some American city used to be.

    #3 Patty, It’s the islam stupid.

  • Radegunda

    ” … why not die the Islamic way?”
    I.e., “the Islamic way” means killing “infidels.” For Muslims, that is the highest virtue. Those who don’t attack infidels generally revere those who do.

    One argument the muslims in this country could use is that speaking out against these terrorists would mean certain death to them. I’ll buy that theory. It probably would. These muslims seem to like killing each other any time, any way, any place usually for nothing much but for what seems to be a big deal to them. They sure like to kill members of their own families. Then again, they might not be speaking out because they condone these actions. Who knows?

    The libs made a big mistake in compassionately allowing these muslims and other people to come here from their war torn countries. I’m sure a lot of terrorists were among them and this guy was one of them obviously. How many others are saying inder the radar. We won’t know until they act. Muslims will never assimulate. Actually, their religion forbids it. I think these people did not come here for a better life, they came to colonize. They want to take over our country and change it to suit themselves. Too bad they didn’t stay in the hellhole they came from instead of coming here and trying to make our country a hellhole too.

    You are completely right!

    They are here, using America Freedom, as a means to do away with American Freedom.
    We have been so busy having compassion and understanding for all of the persecuted people of the world and those who are victims of discrimination ( add in the threatened species and you have the entire premise for NPR) that we looked the other way as people who have ABSOLUTELY NO INTEREST in assimilation came here to undermine the fabric of America. We bought multiculturalism hook, line and sinker – unfortunately!

    We need to wake up. I am coming to believe the only way to repel these people is to discriminate against them, not hire them, not patronize their businesses, and not even be civil to them in public.

    If they fear retribution from their own people – WTF do we need them here for?

    Terror in Tampa- CAIR Denial

    [Despite Osmakac’s commitment to carry out multiple deadly attacks, CAIR officials went on the offensive against the FBI for capturing another “innocent” Muslim. Trying to create tension between Muslim Americans and law enforcement is part of CAIR’s regular response to government counterterrorism investigations.

    Executive Director of CAIR San Francisco Zahra Billoo was quick to paint the arrest as a scam, stating that she was “wondering how much of the thwarted terror plot in Florida was seeded by the FBI, [a]ppreciating that even the MSM mentioned the informants.” Dawud Walid, Executive Director of CAIR-Michigan, released a tweet saying, “it is not the job of civil rights groups to be commending the FBI on their use of informants, given the FBI’s history.”

    The Director of CAIR’s Florida chapter, Hassan Shibley, gave a more lukewarm and confusing response to news of the arrest. Although he stated that Osmakac “was no friend or supporter of the Muslim community” and that the Muslim community had played a “vital role” in his arrest, he also expressed “concern about a perception of entrapment.”]

    @Patty and anyone else wondering what really happened:

    I really have no way of proving this, so you’ll have to take my word for it: My sister lives in Tampa and was good friends with Sami and his brother Avni and is still close with his family. According to her, Sami was a really fun, nice guy. She even admitted she became pretty fond of his brother Avni and got to know them both well. She told me yesterday she couldn’t believe it when she saw this on the news. His family is devastated. They’re Albanian. Apparently he left the US and went to Turkey for a little more than a year and he returned completely changed and obsessed with Islam. Almost as if he had been brainwashed.

    There was nothing wrong with this guy. He was brainwashed by a religion, just as many are. I hope I live long enough to see the day when humans wake up and realize the only truth is the moment you’re alive. We need to stop believing in these lies and stories built to control us and learn to just help one another.
