TITLE: The Jihad Cell
By John Huckstep


I, the undersigned, being duly sworn, state the following is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. I further state that I worked as a undercover agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigations and that this report is based on the following facts:

I was given the task to infiltrate Mohamad Ghee’s band of terrorists on or about November 15th 2005. I was a baker and Ghee frequented my shop daily. We talked and joked but I had no knowledge of his terrorists activities until I was approached by the FBI. I successfully accomplished my mission by developing a close relationship with Mohamad Ghee on or about June 17th 2006.

Ghee had about twenty young men between the ages of nineteen and thirty. Ten of the Muslim extremist were here illegally. These men were calling for Jihad against the infidels. I discovered their goal was world domination. They taught that Islam was the only true religion and that Jihad is obligatory everywhere. I was part of their Jihad now and with the others I shouted in Arabic “Allah Akbar” (God is Great)!

On August 21st, 2006 I recorded Ghee talking to his band about how they would utilize five terrorists at a time to hit Christian churches with populations of over one thousand members. This would be done across the United States with rocket-propelled grenades. (RPGs). I was given the task of taking a map and pinpointing the churches. They all stated it will be easy to hit them and once the explosives start destroying a few of the major churches the pews will empty and Islam will be dominant. Ghee laughed, and shouted: “Islam–our religion today, your religion tomorrow!”

The plan was that on December 25th, 2006 they would destroy Joel Osteen’s Lakewood church in Texas and ten minutes later John Hagee’s Cornerstone church in San Antonio would no longer exist. The other two cells would hit Rick Warrens Saddleback Church in Calif. And Charles Stanley’s First Baptist church in Atlanta. They were planning on over 50,000 infidel deaths for Allah on Christmas day.

I was fearful that my cover was blown on December 1st twenty four days before the planned attack. They could not get the RPG’s into Texas so they decided to use suicide bombers who would walk into the church with explosive strapped under their suits.

All five would sit in different locations and ignite their bodies at exactly fifteen minutes after the sermon started. At the end of this meeting Mohamad Ghee pulled me aside and stated: “You know one thing that’s scary, I don’t know you that much----you know. I don’t know whether your with the FBI or an Agent, I don’t know! But I’m gonna do it! You know why? Because it doesn’t matter to me. I don’t care whether I get locked up, killed, or taken away. It doesn’t matter if I die, I’m gonna do it in the name of Allah.

In the early hours of December 6th, 2006 I along with twenty FBI agents arrest this cell group and confiscated videos, laptops, and detailed maps of each church along with targets pinpointed for maximum casualties. This is not a joke, many other cells are here and waiting to strike.

I am a Special Agent with a strong warning to all my fellow believers. The days we are living in are intensely evil. I urge you to remain diligent in both your prayer life and watchfulness .

Jesus said: “Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21:36. The time is short, the end is approaching. The world is dark and forces both foreign and national are seeking to banish Christ and destroy His kingdom. Stay in the word.

As for me, I’m back on assignment. May God give you peace and strength to stand strong.

Scary that this could be true. I can only hope that, since you need to keep your cover, that this is fiction or ghostwritten.

Definately held my attention.

Lots of excitement here!

Reads more like a narrative summary of a larger work--if you come back to this, consider writing it more in story form, with your narrator interacting with the extremists in dialogue and action.

May God be with our nation in these difficult times!

This is a very sobering story that is in tune with our precarious political situation today. You definitely gave your piece a note of realism in the way you presented it. I noticed a couple verb tense shifts and small "mechanical" errors that proofreading should catch. You closed this story with a good warning message. Nice job! :)

Wow. I sure hope this is NOT true! It was a little technical for me but really got my attention when you mentioned churches I am familiar with. Good job.

Sobering story here. We know not yet what we face in the future.

Definately spell binding action. Like the others that left comments I hope this isn't true. It is however believable and as such a scary story with only a happy ending for now and the promise of a sequel. You are either a master story teller or the host of the "Gong Show." Good job!
