In many of the warnings Al Qaida has given, they have told other muslims to get to "safe areas". Was this store owner influenced by these statements? I don't know, but I don't think so. Then again I never met him.
Perhaps the guy was just catching way too much crap from some people, and felt that he might be safer if he had a less high profile position in the community.
I used to live right down the street from a mom & pop grocery, that was owned and operated by some Iraqis. They were Caldean? christian, and had left Iraq many years ago. They hated Saddam, but said that they disagreed with the US war to remove him.
I don't live anywhere near that place anymore, so I have no idea how they are getting along, but I would not be surprised if they were to sell out to get away from some of the less enlightened people in the neighborhood.
Just my opinion, but I don't think you can tie someone selling their grocery store with a foreknowledge of a planned attack.

Also within the last six months each of these stations have installed propane filling stations, which to me I found very odd because I have never came across a gas station were you are able to get your propane tank filled.
just my thoughts..

2. How does one gain expertise in terrorism and such qualifications?
3. Is it the right thing to do, along with all the crap that the Dept of so called Homeland Security has done... to use snippets of information and to proceed to conjecture about how such things as a massive "WMD" attack will be perpetrated?
4. Why would any reasonable person accept the argument that this is "inevitable"?
