One of the photos was of Adnan posing with Aidah. She titled it ‘Big Bro.’ A more interesting image, though, was of Aidah and her siblings sitting outside the Canadian Broadcasting Centre (CBC) Building in Toronto, next to their father, who has since passed away. The sisters, with smiles beaming from ear to ear, are seen holding a portrait of Adnan and a female. Adnan doesn’t seem so young in the portrait.
A number of rumors had come out placing Adnan in Toronto. As well, Bilal Philips, an individual linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, who was recently banned from entering England, and who is a close family friend to the Shukrijumahs, lived in Toronto for many years and still frequents the area. Question: At the time the photo was taken, was the family paying Adnan a visit? And if they were, do they know his whereabouts now?
And if they weren’t visiting him, why did Aidah remove the photo from her MySpace page – the only photo that was removed from her site?
It is pure speculation on the part of this writer, but it could be that the entire family went to Toronto to say goodbye to their loved one. Goodbye, because they knew that he was getting ready for a trip to South Asia [where he would later attend an al-Qaeda terror summit in Waziristan, a tribal region in Northwest Pakistan that borders Afghanistan, in March 2004] – a trip that he may never return from.
It appears that the only member of the family not present in the photo is Adnan’s mother, Zurah. Everyone else – the father, the four sisters, and their younger brother, Nabil, who has since become radicalized himself – is present. One of the smiling sisters, who is holding the portrait or sketch, is pointing to the female in the portrait – possibly an acknowledgement of the fact that it is her mom that is taking the photo of them.
Maybe the portrait of the mom and Adnan was made while they were together in Toronto.
Today, el-Shukrijumah’s name has surfaced once again – in relation to a foiled terrorist plot to blow up New York City subways.
In September 2009, after flying to Pakistan to join the Taliban to fight U.S. troops in Afghanistan, and after receiving training in bomb making techniques with al-Qaeda, Najibullah Zazi, a resident of Denver, Colorado, and two former classmates – Adis Medunjanin and Zarein Ahmedzay – conspired to carry out ‘rush hour’ suicide attacks in different New York subways.
According to counterterrorism officials, while in Pakistan, Zazi met with el-Shukrijumah. In fact, el-Shukrijumah is alleged to have personally directed the attacks, and on July 8th, he was charged by federal authorities for his role in the plot.
As mentioned previously, el-Shukrijumah is no stranger to the area.
The United States government is currently offering a reward of up to $5 million for information resulting in the arrest of Adnan Gulshair Mohammed el-Shukrijumah.
Question: Does the el-Shukrijumah family have the information that will make them $5 million richer? Do they know where Adnan is?
