    "When she is found innocent what will you say??

    Here's what I will do, this will be fun. I will keep a close eye on this case and the facts and follow it until it's conclusion. When the outcome posts here I will return as shall you and we will each answer that question?" - Crucialcobversations

    Umm, so what do you have to say now? You gave the impression before that the FBI had made this whole thing up. Now you going to say she was tortured into admitting guilt?

  • trianglerelic Nov 1, 4:06 p.m.

    Who needs to fight Al Queda overseas when we seem to have terrorists growing here locally.. Glad they were caught.

  • beach2011 Nov 1, 3:57 p.m.

    AMEN JDAmbrosio!! I like that idea!!!

  • Mom2two Nov 1, 3:55 p.m.

    So much for all the people who swore she couldn't have done and it was a government conspiracy. I just love it when someone is charged and all their "friends" insist they couldn't have done anything like that....and then they plead guilty.

  • GravyPig Nov 1, 3:53 p.m.

    "Fbi wants to keep you scared..Always plenty of useful knuckleheads to stir up fear!"

    Let's see.... I don't live on base at Quantico, I don't live abroad, and they caught people involved. Who is scared? I know I'm not. I'd say the FBI was doing a darn good job. Keep up the good work boys.

    Sigh. It's not the MUSLIMS, it's the less than 1% of Muslims that turn to terrorism. People, please stop painting an entire religious group with such a wide brush. You're offending the perfectly law-abiding, peace-loving people who may read these comments and doing damage you may regret later. You want to know who has suffered a hundred times more from the terrorism of these extremists over the past three decades than America? Muslims in the middle east.

  • lisa4 Nov 1, 3:48 p.m.

    Good idea JDAmbrosio

  • JDAmbrosio Nov 1, 3:25 p.m.

    Let's hold their trial at Ground Zero and let the families and friends of the 9/11 terrorism victims be the judge and jury.

  • samr Nov 1, 3:24 p.m.

    Relic --

    Nowhere did I deny that at all but they do not represent true Islam, just the parts that they choose in order to justify their acts of terror.

  • Relic Nov 1, 3:09 p.m.

    "Muslims weren't the first and they likely won't be the last." True but they are the most current, the most active and right now the most dangerous of religious zealots to citizens of the US. To deny that fact is to deny reality and that does nothing to "bring them (people) closer together".

  • westernwake1 Nov 1, 2:55 p.m.

    "True Islam is a benevolent religion as is true Christianity. Many religious zealots have used select parts of their faith as justification for atrocities throughout history. Muslims weren't the first and they likely won't be the last. Avoid the sweeping generalizations and condemnations that keep people apart instead of bringing them closer together" - samr

    Fianlly. A reasonable statement about religion in the WRAL forums. I don't know if I should applaud... or hold my chest in surprise while gasping for air.

    Hopefully all the people who supported Nevine Aly Elshiekh and tried to say what a "nice lady" she is will now be quiet. Admitting her complicity via a guilty plea should seal all doubt about her criminality.

  • exador7 Nov 1, 1:59 p.m.

    When will these people go away????

  • Relic Nov 1, 1:56 p.m.

    Heavenly - Ummm.... some of these people were American citizens of European descent. If that's the case then you get off my Grandfather's people's land and go home. That being said I also do not understand why people continue to look for some dark, devious plot by the FBI, CIA, White House, Freemasons, Bozo the Clown and Barney the Dinosaur related to trying to "scare" us of Extremist Muslim Terrorists. People, these folks are not an internet hoax. They are real and have already cost us thousands of lives domestically and overseas even before 9-11. Whether it's radical Islam or racist groups or religious cults or anarchists groups we as a society need to accept the fact that there are people looking to believe in SOMETHING that will attach themselves to these movements and cause harm.

  • lost in translation Nov 1, 1:35 p.m.

    Nothing happening here folks...move along. Domestic violence only. I would hate to have had a child in the liberal Montesorri system of tolerance for all. Not.

  • dontstopnow Nov 1, 1:30 p.m.

    plea agreement??? Why? These people are animals that care nothing about human live, especially if you are American and they are living in OUR country! Time to just sweep the streets and send these people back to their own countries.

  • anti-Hans Nov 1, 1:27 p.m.

    Where are all the defenders now of these people? All those that claimed they were framed and could not possibly have been guilty?

  • anneonymousone Nov 1, 1:22 p.m.

    Twoods7, to blame Islam for these alleged criminals is like blaming Christianity for Hitler or Timothy McVeigh. If it's an unfair assumption for one religion, it's an unfair assumption for all.

    Is this really happening here??? What have we allowed to come into our home country? We had enough already.

    Djofraleigh asked, "What have we allowed to come into our home country?" A. Ask Native Americans. B. I have not been able to locate the birthplace or citizenship of the people who have been charged with these crimes. There are Muslims and people with Arabic names who have lived in the US for several generations. C. There's plenty of homegrown terrorism to contend with, too, including the KKK, White Aryan Nation, and others.

    The U.S.A. is a wonderful country. Let's not allow even justified fears of terrorism to turn "E Pluribus Unum" into "Each Against All." Let's strengthen the U.S. by choosing wisdom instead of bigotry, and information instead of discrimination.

  • romneycare Nov 1, 1:18 p.m.

    who is 'our' home country

  • lucasd06 Nov 1, 1:17 p.m.

    Up to 10 years?? That's it?

  • gswalker51 Nov 1, 1:17 p.m.

    Yes, the religion of peace and love...and beheadings.

  • Thought Criminal WS Nov 1, 1:16 p.m.

    Sure, she had no idea what was going on. I've a lifesize model of the Brooklyn bridge for sale as well.

  • r u crazy too Nov 1, 1:10 p.m.

    mike honcho: So, I take it that you blame Bush/Cheney for the 911 attacks

  • Amp Nov 1, 1:10 p.m.

    The great religion of "Peace and Love".

  • Sherlock Nov 1, 12:53 p.m.

    And everyone was saying they were not guilty of that crime, she looked so nice...right.

  • Wags Nov 1, 12:50 p.m.

    We better watch what we say about these nice people. Don't want to lose my head over it.

  • djofraleigh Nov 1, 12:41 p.m.

  • Tarheel born Nov 1, 12:41 p.m.

    Testimony = no jail time + long period of probation......

  • twoods7 Nov 1, 12:38 p.m.

    Another shining example of Islam's perspectives on justice and rule of law.

  • IceCreamMan Nov 1, 12:35 p.m.
