I thought I would begin to do a "spotlight on terrorists" profile daily so that we can all see if there might be a trend.
Today's special guest is Jaber A. Elbaneh, aka Jaber A. Elbanelt, Jaben A. Elbanelt, Jabor Elbaneh, Abu Jubaer, Jubaer Elbaneh, "Jubair" is on the FBI's "Most Wanted Terrorist List".
This American Muslim nut case was born in Yemen and gives his dob as 9/9/66. He is described as 5' 8" and 2oo lbs. with brown hair and eyes. He is charged with providing material support and resources to Al-Qaida. Jaber worked at Sorrento Cheese in NY and is believed to have been a cab driver in Yemen. He speaks with a Yemeni accent.
Elbaneh has been associated with the Buffalo Six domestic terrorist cell and is believed to have traveled to the Al-Farooq terrorist training camp in Afghanistan with them. He was later detained and imprisoned in Yemen, but escaped along with 22 other Al-Qaida members in February of this year (isn't that convenient).
Attempts to extradite him to the US were unsuccessful (I wonder why). He is believed to have been an associate of Kaman Derwish, also a former Lackawanna resident. Derwish was the chief Al-Qaida recruiter in Lackawanna and is believed to have been killed in Yemen by a CIA missile shot from a drone.
This upstanding son of Islam is a married father of seven children, has parents and five brothers living in Lackawanna. What is with that town?
The Rewards For Justice Program is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to his arrest.
If you have any information regarding this individual contact your local FBI office.
Meanwhile stay tuned for the next PROFILE.
