"Blind Sheik" warning comes due to his illness

A new or really a re-warning of a previous warning has been issued according to AP News because cleric Omar Abdel-Rahman who is being held in a US prison and is known as the "Blind Sheik" has recently become ill and was diagnosed with a tumor in his liver.

Yet after the warning was issued, the Prison released this statement:

But U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Tracy Billingsley said Abdel-Rahman's condition had stabilized, and he has since been moved back to prison.

"His condition has improved," Billingsley said.


Further not everyone seems to agree that when he does die it would spark any major terroristic action:

Terror expert Dia'a Rashwan said Abdel-Rahman's death would not be likely to incite huge attacks in the United States because he is closer to an Egyptian militant group than to al-Qaida and "does not enjoy such a status on international level."

Instead, "I expect some small and easy violent acts and attacks, especially in Afghanistan, in retaliation to his death and to keep the name of Omar Abdel-Rahman as a martyr," said Rashwan, an expert at the Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies in Cairo, Egypt.

I still believe that we make people out to be more important than they are. I doubt Zarqawi would have been anything more than a nuisance if we hadn't made him into an evil genius. Our problem is that in our quest to find people to blame, we turn pawns into kings and morons into gods

"The Blind Sheik" should spend more time pondering his pending judgment.

I believe that, whether the God that you worship and honor is called God, Jehovah or Allah, there IS a judgment. . .
