Following the Professor’s detailed instructions, Omar, the Black Muslim leader of the bikers, led the four motorcycles across the bridge from Mount Pleasant into the outskirts of Charleston’s historical district. Then, with a final check of readiness, he passed the word to take out their assigned targets.
Holding one bike team in reserve, Omar and his sidecar rider sped off to attack Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, the historic Jewish Synagogue on Hasell Street. The other two teams headed for the Roman Catholic Church next door to the synagogue and the Congregational Church on Market Street.
All the attacks were planned to take place in a three-minute window. The Professor liked to keep operations simple. All the teams were trained to use the same M.O. The saddlebags of the bikes were full of homemade Molotov cocktails, glass quart bottles filled with a mixture of gasoline and liquid soap with a cloth wick. Simple, but quiet and effective.
After getting the bikes as close to the targets as possible, each team member dismounted with three fire bombs each and ran to opposite sides of their targets. Two fire bombs through the basement windows and four through first floor windows. The fires would start slowly and then gather strength. Before the bikes were out of sight, fires were raging. The three motorcycles hit their targets within their three-minute window.
At a wooded site, little more than a mile from the Hasell Street bombings, they loaded the bikes into a waiting truck that headed south to Savannah. The men got into a van waiting nearby. No problems were encountered at any of the targets. As the van drove west on Highway 26 to Columbia, the sounds of sirens from racing fire trucks could be heard.
The van driver called the Professor and told him the work was completed, and they expected to be at their dispersal site on schedule. After receiving the report of success from his team leader, the Professor sent an email through three other destinations before it was sent from Atlanta to the network news centers in Charleston saying:
“THE BLACK MUSLIMS OF AL QAEDA HAVE RETALIATED FOR YOUR ATROCITIES AGAINST ISLAM. THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING. MORE DESTRUCTION WILL OCCUR. NO AMERICAN CITY IS SAFE AND NO AMERICAN IS SAFE. YOUR GOVERNMENT OF 21ST CENTURY TEMPLARS CANNOT PROTECT YOU FROM THE WRATH OF BLACK MUSLIMS IN AMERICA. THEY HAVE BEEN WELL-TRAINED AND WANT REVENGE. AS THE CRUSADERS DID IN JERUSALEM WITH MUSLIM BLOOD, CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH BLOOD WILL RUN LIKE RIVERS IN THE STREETS ALL THROUGH THE LAND OF SATAN.”
