 Jan 10 - Chicago Man, Arrested For Threatening To Blow Up CTA Bus
topic by Ham Rove - 01-10-2013, 10:54 AM


A 23-year-old Chicago man was arrested after he allegedly made a bomb threat while aboard a CTA bus during the Monday rush hour.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Russell was on a westbound No. 66 Chicago Avenue bus near Orleans Street in the city's River North neighborhood when he reportedly yelled that he would "blow this **** up" while shouting derogatory remarks. The man also claimed he was "jihad against the white devil."

Russell allegedly yelled racial slurs at police officers while he was being arrested on the charge of making a bomb threat, a felony. His bond was set at $90,000 on Tuesday, CBS Chicago reports. He is due back in court on Monday.

The incident has prompted conservative blogger Pamela Geller, whose incendiary "Defeat Jihad" ads graced a number of CTA buses last year, to blame CAIR-Chicago, whose executive director Ahmed Rehab sponsored a pro-Muslim "My Jihad" ad campaign in response to Geller's campaign, for allegedly inspiring the bomb threat.

The "My Jihad" ad campaign, which its sponsors say is aimed at spreading awareness of what the word 'jihad" means, hit CTA buses and trains last month and have since expanded to other markets across the country, including San Francisco, where the ads debuted last week.

On Monday, TheBlaze provided an inside look at the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) new public relations campaign dubbed “MyJihad” or, “#MyJihad.” The ad campaign launched via a series of San Francisco bus ads the first week in January and soon followed suit in Chicago. And now, a man identified as Caleb Russell ironically threatened to blow up a CTA bus in the name of “jihad against the white devil.” Apparently, that was “#hisjihad.”

CAIR, which was named an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial — the largest terror-funding trial in U.S. history — claims its rebranding efforts are meant to take back the word “jihad” from “anti-Muslims” and paint it in a positive light.

But Russell didn’t get the full memo, as The Chicago Tribune reported:

A man threatened to blow up a CTA bus and told police he was “jihad against the white devil” this week, causing evening rush hour passengers to flee in fear for their lives, authorities said. A judge set bail at $90,000 Tuesday for Caleb Russell, 23, of the 4700 block of South Woodlawn Avenue, who was charged with making a bomb threat, a felony, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office and police.
Russell was aboard a CTA bus that was westbound on Chicago Avenue at Orleans Street in the River North neighborhood Monday about 6:20 p.m. when officers on patrol saw the bus stop in the middle of the intersection, according to a police report.

Several passengers told police that Russell made derogatory and racial remarks and threatened to “blow this (expletive) up,’’ the report said.
Russell also began yelling racial slurs at responding officers and said he was “jihad against the white devil,’’ the report said.
After the driver pushed the panic button, numerous passengers who “feared for their lives’’ exited from the rear and front of the bus, the report said….
As TheBlaze noted in its previous report, slogans for the new CAIR-led ad campaign appearing on the buses include:
“My Jihad is to stay fit despite my busy schedule. What’s yours?”
“My Jihad is to build friendships across the aisle. What’s yours?”
“My Jihad is to not judge people by their cover. What’s yours?”

While certainly anything could have set off Russell’s bizarre, jihadist-fueled threat, it does seem oddly inconvenient timing for CAIR that the incident happened the same week the Hamas-linked group launched its #MyJihad ads. Perhaps Russell was merely trying to express what jihad means to him.
