Reservoir Jihad?

The following story is an example of why we need more alert citizens like Don Laird.

Seven culturally enriched people — from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore — were arrested yesterday just after midnight for trespassing at a reservoir outside Boston, one of the city’s two major water supplies.

Like the “Truck Stop Jihad”, this may be just a coincidence. It’s possible that these foreign visitors just happened to be out sightseeing in the middle of the night, and decided to take a look at the famous Quabbin Reservoir. Uh-huh. In the dark. Sure.

And it’s also just a coincidence that most of the visitors come from countries that are hotbeds of radical Islam. Yup. Nothing unusual there. Right?

It’s funny, though — the Massachusetts state police don’t seem to believe in coincidences, since they have stepped up their patrols of all the reservoirs in the commonwealth in the wake of this incident.

There are many, many reservoirs scattered over millions of square miles throughout the United States. An increased law enforcement presence at all of them would be a difficult and expensive process to implement. How many drinking water reservoirs are there in the country? How many personnel does it take to watch them?

Investigating the statistics is not an easy task. Just to pick Kansas at random, the USGS lists twenty-four reservoirs in the state. We may assume that Kansas’ generally rural character makes that total smaller than average, implying that there are at least several thousand reservoirs throughout the country. Add the water towers, water treatment plants, pumping stations, catchment areas around reservoirs and lakes, etc., and it’s easy to see that the nation’s water supply offers tens of thousands of potential targets and hundreds of thousands of miles of perimeter to patrol.

We don’t have enough police, FBI and DHS agents, and National Guard soldiers to do the job. That’s why we need ordinary citizens to become experts on jihad-related behavior so they can be alert to what is going on around them.

Below are excerpts from the report on the Quabbin incident, from CBS Boston:

7 Caught Trespassing At Quabbin Reservoir; Patrols Stepped Up Across State

BELCHERTOWN (CBS) — Shortly after midnight Tuesday, seven people were caught trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir.

State Police say the five men and two women are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore, and “cited their education and career interests” for being in the area. The men told police they were chemical engineers and recent college graduates.

The Quabbin, in Belchertown, is one of the country’s largest man-made public water supplies. Boston’s drinking water comes from the Quabbin and the Wachusett Reservoirs.

State Police say there were no warrants or advisories on any of the individuals and “there was no evidence that the seven were committing any crime beyond the trespassing.”

All seven were allowed to leave and will be summonsed to court for trespassing. The FBI is investigating and routine checks of public water supplies have been increased following the incident.

The seven individuals currently live in Amherst, Cambridge, Sunderland, Northampton and New York City. Police have not released their names because a court date has not been set.

  2. The interesting thing is that for some reason these people from different countries and currently living in different towns in the US just happen to converge at the reservoir. What universities/colleges did they just graduate from? Was it the same one or different ones. Where were the males from versus where were the women from? How do they know each other? Coincidences that make you say “huh”!!! Don’t have all the facts but will speculate that this was either a recce, dry run, or just an oriental flashmob out for a skinny dip..not!

  3. Just “trespassing” eh? Making a scientific trip to study a reservoir after midnight… And seemingly all Muslims – at a time when Al Q’aeda is encouraging its supporters to poison drinking supplies. Just a coincidence of course. Nothing for the police or intelligence services to see here…

  4. Cost is no object. It is worth it, so as to enjoy the presence of Muslims in our countries. They so enrich our lives. Plus, it’s good for jobs stimulus. Lots of extra jobs in policing and security. Of course that is an extra expense making all of our goods and services more expensive in the marketplace. But heh, at least we get to enjoy our young girls being gang raped and groomed for sex. You cant put a price on that!

    Not to mention Jews fleeing our cities and countries. Priceless!

  5. They are monsters in their hearts. To know the Quoran alone in its valid parts is sensing horrorism ….. to learn on the history of the massacres and assassinations cult is as looking behind the devils grining polite fassade whilst his body is up to his lower lip in an ocean of bloodsheds …….. to hold such as “holy” is not only mentaly retarded its a testimony for a set of feelings which is stunning openly evil.

    So how to tackle such souls?

    How to deliver a conciousness which makes them aware of their own present side ?

    It is very simply: Salman Rushdie has been only some inches on the way of destructing Islam at is mythical basis by showing how devastating the close up watching onto its basis is.
    Instead of keeping this way he rendered ALL when he chose to become “romantic”……… the spectacular “mirror upholding” which could have led so many into reflections on their believe was destroyed because Rushdie invented a phantasy around giving “Muslims” the “opportunity” to call him a lie inventor.
    Salman – offspring from Islamic parents – did the pubic thing instead of the adult approach.
    The film “The innocence of Muslims” was also not the adult approach because the playing did not reached deeply the heart moves of empathy for the surpressed and murdered …. as the film was filled with sarcasms and “easygoing”.
    Never the less the walking in the sense making direction was very much more than the attempt of Salman. In Islam its forbidden to have an act by “showing Mohammed played”, but as the play did showed up WHICH IS ISLAMIC TRADITION it was no wonder why the Islamic World kept silent and the only loudness came from the Dhimmis under the Obama Admin…….

    The silence would be even a greater silence if Muslims are showed how Islam was invented…… they would be even more BOND TO THINK ! …..under which their sets of feelings could not be kept.

    Searching a Publisher and someone with enough money for the sole purpose of a book which shows: This was the beginning of Islam. Publishing and printing done in a group of souls having freely decided to come together for the purpose of making this book. Solving the Company when its done. Books should not be sold but “rained” by parachutes as a present from above. No one should put at risk to seel such a book …… remember the assassinations during the selling of Rushdie`s book ?
    The “raining” should also came over core Islamic countries ……. and the movement must be coordinated so well that the utmost liars: Muftis, Hodschas, Imams, Ayathollas …. would have no time to “assemble” strategies of lieing to slow down or by other means can attempt to end the move that will shock the Islamic World to truths … and thus to its Ideological ends, with positive massive effects for the ends of so many other lie cults …….

    Making themselves wishing to keep mouths shut by the trace of truth and the opening of insights towards how much knowledge they so bitter need for: To start to think and feel as humans !

  6. I have been having an ongoing conversation with my 28 year old son about how the country has changed since I was his age. This is a perfect case in point. When I was in my early 20’s I lived in a brownstone in Brooklyn Heights with 3 other roomates. We all has our own bedrooms.
    One weekend I was invited by one of the roomates to go visit someone that lived in Brewster NY, north of NYC. Anxious to spend a day out of the city I went along. While we were in Brewster we decided to stop off at a NYC drinking water resevoir. We hiked in, I don’t recall any fences or such. We spent a few hours by the side of the resevoir enjoying the beautiful water and marveling that this water might actually come out of our tap in Brooklyn one day. I am pretty sure that if we had been “caught” by the resevoir we would have been told to move along.
    Now I am pretty sure that we would be arrested…

  7. Just consider that many towns and cities draw their water from rivers which are even harder to police. We in Manhattan Kansas love that our toilets are consumed by the residents of Lawrence, home of the Jayhawks.
    Most of our water is at risk. The Bible tells that in the end times, initially 1/3 of all the oceans rivers and lakes will be turned to blood. Whether that is literal blood, or something that gives the appearance of blood remains to be seen. In all likelyhood, the horse that breaths fire and smoke and sulpher is akin to our main battle tanks.

  8. Depending upon the size of the reservoir, the amount of poison needed would be eneormous (most biologicals would be taken out by chlorination at the water treatment plant). It is not going to be a pocket full of Arsenic, maybe a semi load of the stuff would make people ill.

    An attack on a small reservoir would be easier…..

    This could have been a penetration test…

  9. MC —

    Or it could have been intended to force the authorities to deploy enormous resources and manpower to patrol all the watersheds. This, I think, may be the most likely reason of all.

    Even if the jihad doesn’t kill us, it may bankrupt us. I think the brightest of the Salafist strategists are aware of this outcome.

    • Yes, and people like me that were there to revel in the wonder of our watershed would now be arrested. I’m not sure where the balance should be.

    • Baron,

      Exactly what I’ve been thinking… also, could this be the logic behind the “incidents” involving Muslims in aircraft we keep hearing about?

    • bin laden was quiet clear that financial destruction of the west was the path to muslim domination.

  10. Also, a theory my father once mentioned when I was a child (and when I thought any talk about demographics, Muslim takeovers etc was extreme/loony) – could adherents of the “Religion of Peace” already be contaminating our drinking water, with chemicals to induce infertility?

    Still not sure I believe it, but the massive increase in infertile Westerners over the years is food for thought.

  11. The elephant in the room is the continued presence of Muslims in Western nations.
    They must be asked to leave and if they don’t then made to leave.

    It’ll never happen, that would be RAAACCCIIIST! Forget protecting your kith and kin and country.

  12. How curious to discover a recent article updating the status of this event is already pulled Page Not Found. Fortunately, the cache of this article can be viewed here,

    FBI enters Quabbin terrorist alert incident” via

    BELCHERTOWN — The FBI has become involved in the investigation into how and why six foreign nationals from Saudi Arabia, Singapore and Pakistan were found trespassing on the Quabbin Reservoir watershed after midnight Tuesday. The incident triggered a state-wide terrorism alert to all law enforcment agencies. While there is no evidecne of terrorist activities by the group, the Quabbin is among the state’s largest infrastructure platforms and provides drinking water for approximately 2 million Massachusetts residents in the central and eastern parts of the state.
    The FBI was contacted by the State Police for assistance, and the federal agency is providing background and records checks on the seven people arrested near the reservoir. According to the State Police the six foreign nationals and one American told troopers that they were chemical engineering students and came to the Quabbin because it relates to the course of study they had completed.
    Meanwhile, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority has been monitoring the waters of the 39 square-mile, man-made reservoir and say testing has turned up no apparent contamination or abnormalities.

    Quabbin Reservoir breach sparks investigation
    By John Zaremba, Laurel J. Sweet

    Security at a water source for more than 2 million people in Greater Boston was never increased after the marathon…

    Begs the question, what percentage of these 7 infil-traitors remain on US soil with expired or invalid student visas and are financially supported by American taxpayers?

    re: “the amount of poison needed would be eneormous” – mcin Sderot

    That may be true, but is it safe to assume this is the first and only time this group of ‘recent grads’ from Mo’s heartlands visited this and/or other vulnerable reservoirs? Does the effort require only one visit, or can it be accomplished by multiple groups on multiple visits. Sure they were caught this time, thanks to alert law enforcement, but how many of these curious well-educated graduates travel in feral packs at night, prepared to feature our worst nightmare?

  13. STEM graduates — again.

    Folks, these are the hardest of the hard core.

    Our worst enemies in the ummah have STEM degrees — almost without exception.

    BTW, STEM graduates do not lust for the woods and lakes.

  14. Here is a great idea for a single or multi-panel panel, political cartoon lampooning Homeland Security and the moslem in the White House.

    Top Half: long line of snarly Saudis bedecked in Saudi finery (white maternity dress and Swiss table-cloth on the head) with evil leer proceeding unchecked through customs with but a cheery wave from a Border Protection Agent (Napolitano in frumpy uniform to emphasize girth and masculinity) and Barry and Moochelle (enhanced booty for emphasis) also waving in the background (maybe holding “Welcome” sign).

    Middle: Saudi mujahedeen hooking up with assorted other brown toilet-logs (both sexes) in front of Car Rental and high tailing out of the airport.

    Bottom: Scenes of devastation (9/11, Boston Marathon, Fort Hood, etc.) and potential disaster (Quabbin Reservoir, nuclear sites, bridges, etc), with evil leering moslem interspersed and many ‘Allahu Akbar’s’). Might even include specific Saudi like the one ‘detained’ and disappeared in Boston bombing and a few from 9/11.

  15. I live two towns over from the Quabbin, it is a huge area that would be impossible
    to “Lock down”. Park on a residential street cut through the back yard walk a quarter mile and their you are.
    From what I read in the local papers all the students attended UMASS Amherst and live in Sunderland, Northampton, Amherst and one from NYC.
    The Amherst/Northampton area has five big colleges, UMASS, Smith, Mt. Holyoke, Amherst College and Hampshire College. So during the school year we have thousands of students running around here and very many from out of country. It’s graduation time so most are on their way home thank you very much.
    My two cents.

  16. According to this linked article: . They will likely be summonsed to Eastern Hampshire District Court on trespassing charges, State Police spokesman David Procopio said.

    Feeling safe yet? Well here is a description of what to expect when charged with trespass.
    Trespassing Penalties

    A person convicted of criminal trespass faces a range of penalties. In most criminal trespass situations courts do not impose significant jail penalties, fines, or lengthy probation periods, though the potential penalties differ between states. Trespassing is typically considered a minor crime and is not usually associated with stiff penalties. However, depending on the circumstances of the case and the laws in your state, a trespassing conviction can lead to a significant jail sentence and other penalties.

    Per very recent amendment to the law, if these infil-traitors receive nothing more than a slap on the hand and their (collective?, individual?) case(s) get(s) dismissed, any legal record of this event can be permanently sealed & protect them from this information being used against them in future prosecutions . . .

    05.23.12 – Boston Municipal Court Department Standing Order 1-09 for Sealing Multiple Criminal Records amended as a permanent Order effective as of May 14, 2012
