STOP Gitmo Detainee Transfer to Michigan Petition - Car Alarm Protest

Attached is a petition to stop the transfer of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba ("Gitmo") detainees to Michigan, please get this out to all your contacts in Michigan ASAP. If these guys get here, the ACLU will get them visitation rights and then it will only be a matter of time before jihadists, already in the U.S., begin attacking Middle-schools to get the "rockstars" of terrorism released from Standish, Maximum prison.

All across Iraq, Afghanistan and Turkey jihadists have targeted schools with middle-school children because they don't have as much security as high schools and the teachers and admin are mostly women. Also, the girls are old enough to rape, but not old enough to fight back (Search for Beslan, Russia 2004 on YouTube). The jihadists are targeting children throughout the World to get the adults to stop their support for the Americans and they will target American children in the U.S. to get our citizens to support pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan, and to show their ability to strike us at home. These detainees must stay in Gitmo where they are out of sight and out of mind. These detainees are "enemy" combatants and the Gitmo prison exceeds the requirements of the Geneva Convention. No mis-treatment of the prisoners has occurred in Gitmo. Some mis-treatment occurred in the Abu-grave prison.

F.B.I. and Homeland Security have located many cells of terrorists in the U.S. and they know there are cells in the U.S. they have not yet located by the communications they are monitoring. Just yesterday another jihadist was captured on U.S. soil.

The town of Standish approved a resolution on Monday, as the standing-room only crowd of townspeople pleaded with their City Council to NOT SIGN the resolution. Clearly, the Standish City Council was under tremendous pressure from higher-ups in government (Governor?, Dept. of Defense? & Obama's minions?).

We have to stop this transfer or children will die! (According to Dr. Peter Leitner an expert on global terrorism and Lt. Colonel Gordon Cucullu an expert on Gitmo, who wrote "Inside Gitmo"). These two gentlemen just led townhalls in Rochester Hills and Okemos and recently testified in front of our state's Senate Judiciary Committee.

This is a bi-parisan effort. Jihadists are not going to ask children in the middle-schools which party their parents belong to before they are attacked. Moving "enemy combatants is unprecedented and just plain dangerous.

We have heard that at Noon on Friday, October 30, 2009 until 12:15 p.m. (15 minutes) all across Michigan and the U.S.A. car alarms will go off to tell our representatives and fellow citizens these "rockstars" of terrorism do not belong in Michigan or any other U.S. soil.

This is urgent...please sign the petition and forward to other Michiganders ASAP.


Also, we now have a Facebook Group called Michigan Coalition to Stop Gitmo North. Please visit our Facebook group and join.


Thank you,

Michigan Coalition to Stop GITMO North

Folks, last Friday the townspeople of Standish, Michigan met with their City Council and insisted the Council not approve and sign a resolution welcoming 200 Gitmo detainees to U.S. soil, and to their Maximum Security Prison, which will be empty October 31st. The City Council tabled the resolution and then announced over this week-end they would convene and emergency City Council meeting today to pass the resolution. Clrealy somebody is putting a lot of pressure on them from either the Governor's office or the Obama administration.

The Federal government has gone around our state legislature straight to this town to broker a deal to welcome the "rockstars" of terrorism to our shores and to our state. The ACLU is drooling at this and has already set-up a team to hit Standish the moment these animals land there. The ACLU will demand these "ENEMY COMBATANTS" get all the rights afforded to a U.S. citizen, including visitation rights. Once they get visitation rights, plans will be made with cells inside the U.S. and children will be targeted (Google Beslan, Russia 2004).

What Homeland Security and the FBI haven't announced is that they are monitoring cells in the U.S., but they HAVE NOT LOCATED ALL THE CELLS.

al Qaeda and the Taliban have attacked hundreds of schools in Iraq, Turkey and Afghanistan, because they know our children are our most precious assets. They also target schools with middle-school age kids, because high schools usually have too much security, and more male teachers and administrators.

In Beslan, Russia the men and boys were told to set-up tables and chairs as barricades, and then they were taken to a room and shot. The girls were raped repeatedly over the three day ordeal. They also target middle-schools because the girls are old enough to rape and not old enough to fight back. These attacks are made in an effort to get their friends released from prisons.

If the Gitmo prisoners land on U.S. soil and get visitation rights, it will not be a matter of if this will occur here . . . it will be a matter of when.

Here is an article from the Wall Street Journal clarifying the complexity of trying these animals on U.S. soil.

Please folks call your reps, senators and the governor's office and let them know this is not just a decision for the little town of Standish to make. This decision must be made by responsible people accross the U.S.A., since bringing these Gitmo detainees will paint a target on the whole country.

These animals should stay in Gitmo, where they are out of site and out of mind for their jihadist friends. They should stay there until the end of the hostilities as prescribed by the Geneva Convention. THEY DO NOT BELONG ON U.S. soil! Please consider the safety of our children and call today!

Michigan Coalition to Stop GITMO North
For Immediate Release: October 8, 2009
Michigan Senator Wayne Kuipers, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, will join nationally renowned terrorism expert Peter Leitner and Gitmo authority Lt. Col. Gordon Cucullu at a town hall Tuesday night (Oct. 13) at Kinawa Middle School addressing the possible transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees to Michigan. It begins at 7 PM in the school auditorium and is open to the community.
The citizen information meeting is being presented by the Michigan Coalition to Stop Gitmo North, a grassroots organization of citizens from across the state concerned about the potential risks of relocating Gitmo terror suspects to the soon-to-be-shuttered prison in Standish. The group hosted the first town hall in Standish when it learned the site was on the federal government’s short list of facilities to house detainees the Administration wants to move to US soil. The coalition will also be hosting a program in Rochester on Monday night and a legislative briefing at the state capitol earlier in the day.
“Although Standish residents will be most immediately impacted, this is an issue of monumental importance for all citizens of Michigan. We should all be concerned about security considerations and the negative impact this will have on our state economy,” said Kelly Kimball, former Arenac County Commissioner and a coalition leader.
“With everyone in Michigan fixated on our state’s budget and the nation fixated on health care reform, it is critical this issue get the same attention, so it doesn’t fly under the radar until it’s too late and federal officials force this decision upon us,” Kimball said.
Senator Kuipers convened hearings recently on the proposed transfer of Gitmo detainees to a soon to be shuttered state prison in Standish. After hearing testimony, the Michigan senate voted unanimously to pass a resolution calling on the federal government to declassify information on the backgrounds of the detainees and their conduct while at Gitmo. The senate also requested authorization for a fact-finding trip to Gitmo. A similar request initiated by US Rep. Pete Hoekstra of Michigan was denied. Just this past week, both the US Senate and US House voted to deny funding to close Gitmo and transfer detainees to the US.
Leading the panel will be Lt. Col. Gordon Cucullu, former Army Special Forces and author of “Inside Gitmo: The True Story behind the Myths of Guantanamo Bay.” The book is based on extensive research backed by five visits to the Gitmo detention facility. He served in Vietnam as a Green Beret and on high level staffs at the Pentagon and State Department. He is a frequent guest contributor and commentator to major media outlets.
Dr. Peter Leitner, will address broader state and national security implications of the President’s intent to move Gitmo detainees to the US. He is the president of the Higgins Counterterrorism Research Center and served as the principal expert on terrorism issues within the Defense Technology Security Administration of the Department of Defense.
Three community leaders from Standish, including the chief steward of corrections officers, will present a local perspective of why their town is ill-suited to house Gitmo detainees and the negative impact it would have on the region and state. Several other elected officials, including Governor Granholm, have also been invited.
