Liberal fools are playing with fire – and with children’s lives – in the United States. A Minnesota-based Muslim radical, who is on the ‘No-Fly’ list a a potential terrorist, is poised to get a licence to drive school buses. What could possibly go wrong?
To add insult to injury, the $4,000 for Amir Meshal’s Class A commercial license training to drive semi-trucks came from American taxpayers, courtesy of a state-run workforce programme.

Eight years ago, Meshal, a U.S. citizen whose family is from Egypt, was accused of being in a terror training camp in Somalia and was held by the FBI in Kenya for three months.
More recently, he was put on the no-fly list maintained by the U.S. government’s Terrorist Screening Center, which includes people not permitted to board a commercial aircraft to travel in or out of the U.S.
In a letter sent to the terror suspect through the American Civil Liberties Union, the Dept of Homeland Security wrote that Meshal “…may be a threat to civil aviation or national security.” In addition, the letter stated, “It has been determined that you [Amir Meshal] are an individual who represents a threat of engaging in or conducting a violent act of terrorism and who is operationally capable of doing so.”
The danger posed by Meshal is even recognised by other Muslims. Last year he was forbidden to enter the Al Farooq mosque in Bloomington, Minnesota after he was accused of radicalising young Muslims. A number of those young people in question later ended up travelling to Syria as jihadists. He similarly had been asked to leave another mosque in Eden Prairie, Minn.
Religious leaders told police at the time, “We have concerns about Meshal interacting with our youth.”
Well, good for them! They’ve obviously got a lot more sense than the local do-good bureaucrats! But mainstream Americans need to be concerned about Meshal ‘interacting’ with their own youth. Because anyone who thinks that it is acceptable for Islamist terror suspects to be allowed to drive buses full of innocent children, needs to take a long, hard look at what happened in Beslan, Russia, eleven years ago today.
