Man With Mich. Ties on FBI Most Wanted Terrorists List

Search Under Way For Faouzi Ayoub

DETROIT — Federal documents that were unsealed earlier this month reveal a 44-year-old man with ties to Dearborn, Mich., is on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.

According to the indictment obtained by Local 4, Lebanese-born Faouzi Ayoub is accused of trying to use a fake passport on Oct. 8, 2000, to enter Israel for “the purpose of bombing on behalf of the designated terrorist organization Hezbollah.” He used the alias Frank Mariana Boschi.

He is charged with passport fraud in U.S. District Court in Detroit.

The indictment against Ayoub was originally signed and sealed on Aug. 5, 2009.

His profile is listed on the FBI’s website.

The FBI said said Ayoub has been known to use 10 different aliases, speaks Arabic and English and is considered armed and dangerous.

“People need to keep their eyes around and out for him. He did passport fraud, that’s the charge against him,” said Detroit Special Agent Sandra Berchtold. “Anybody that would use a United States passport to illegally enter a country is very concerning to us.”

Sounds like one smart and wily fellow to me...kind of shoots the "Arabs-are-dumb-and-dumber" meme in the head...

Oops...Am I permitted to say 'shoot' anymore or is that on the MCPC NoNo Nyet List?
