January 30, 2015 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Our associate and my writing partner, Ms. Rabinowitz caught this item and translated the text of some of the news reports as well as the attacker’s demands. This is rough copy but the event is more than important enough to rush this to press. Ms. Rabinowitz is also the proprietor of Militant Islam Monitor, a well-known anti jihad news site.

Only the foreign media is on this story, below a scattering of some of the information available as of this writing.

“The 19 year old student Tarik Zahzah whose father is Egyptian and has a Dutch mother will be held in detention for at least 14 more days. He barged into the studio with a gun (which later was determined to be fake) demanding airtime to "discuss major world affairs". He claimed to be from a hackers collective threatening that radioactive bombs had been placed around the country. He studied Molecular Biology and Technology. A fellow student described him as a "loner". He is facing 20 years to life imprisonment for his actions.

He also had a letter with him which read:

“Wanneer u dit leest, raak dan niet in paniek. Ga niet schreeuwen en waarschuw uw collega's ook niet. Doe alsof er niets aan de hand is. Ik ben zwaarbewapend. Als u gewoon netjes meewerkt, dan zal u niets overkomen.

Besef dat ik niet in mijn eentje ben. Er zijn er nog vijf, plus 98 hackers die klaar zijn voor een cyberaanval. Bovendien zijn er in dit land acht zware explosieven geplaatst die radioactief materiaal bevatten. Als u mij niet naar studio 8 brengt om een uitzending over te nemen, dan zijn wij genoodzaakt tot actie over te gaan. Dat wilt u niet op u geweten hebben toch? Dus begeleid mij nu naar studio 8, de NOS studio', aldus de tekst in de brief…”

Translation:

When you read this do not panic. Do not scream and also do not warn your colleagues. Pretend as if nothing is wrong. I am heavily armed. If you follow instructions nicely nothing will happen to you.

Understand that I am not alone. There are still five, plus 98 hackers who are ready for a cyber attack. In addition there are eight heavy explosives which have been placed in this country which contain radioactive material. If you do not take me to studio 8 to take over the broadcast we will be compelled to go into action. You do not want this on your conscience, do you? Therefore take me to studio 8, the NOS studio',according to the text of the letter.’
