Homegrown Jihad, Again

We’ve posted many times in this space about Jamaat ul-Fuqra, the terrorist organization that is headed by a sheikh in Pakistan and has rural compounds all over the United States. JuF recruits most of its members while they are in prison, and sends them out to live in its compounds upon their release.

A similar process seems to have been at work in yesterday’s Bronx terror-bombing plot. The would-be terrorists were allegedly converted to Islam in prison, and decided to become free-lance mujahideen when they got out. According to The New York Daily News:

FBI Arrest Four in Alleged Plot to Bomb Bronx Synagogues, Shoot Down Plane

The FBI and NYPD busted a four-man homegrown terror cell Wednesday night that was plotting to blow up two Bronx synagogues while simultaneously shooting a plane out of the sky, sources told the Daily News.

The idea was to create a “fireball that would make the country gasp,” one law enforcement said.

Little did they know the plastic explosives packed into their car bombs and the plane-downing Stinger missile in their backseat were all phony — supplied by undercover agents posing as Pakistani militants linked to Al Qaeda.


The suspects — three U.S.-born citizens and one Haitian immigrant — at least three of whom were said to be jailhouse converts to Islam, were angry about the deaths of Muslims in Afghanistan, sources told The News.

“They wanted to make a statement,” a law enforcement source said. “They were filled with rage and wanted to take it out on what they considered the source of all problems in America — the Jews.”

So American Jews were responsible for the death of Muslims in Afghanistan? What planet does this guy live on?

American Jews are over-represented in various “peace” organizations, and voted overwhelmingly for political candidates who opposed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, especially Barack Hussein Obama. Liberal American Jews should be counted as Islam’s best friends. But no, somehow they are responsible for everything bad that happens to Muslims.

The group’s alleged ringleader, James Cromitie, according to the complaint, discussed targets with an undercover agent. “The best target [the World Trade Center] was hit already,” he allegedly told the agent. Later, he rejoiced in a terrorist attack on a synagogue.

“I hate those motherf——-s, those f—-ing Jewish bastards…. I would like to get [destroy] a synagogue.”

The men allegedly parked car bombs wired to cell phones outside the Riverdale Temple and nearby Riverdale Jewish Center. They were also heading to Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh, Orange County, when the law swooped in on them.

Sources said their plan was to shoot down a cargo plane headed to Iraq or Afghanistan with a surface-to-air guided missile while simultaneously calling the cell phones and blowing up the Riverdale synagogues.

Sources said the four men were arrested after a year-long investigation that began when an informant connected to a mosque in Newburgh said he knew men who wanted to buy explosives.

FBI agents supplied them with what they billed as C-4 plastic explosives and a Stinger missile.

The weaponry was all phony.

Here’s the obligatory disclaimer that the incident was connected in any way to terrorism, this time coming from the mouth of Sen. Chuck Schumer:

“If there can be any good news from this terror scare it’s that this group was relatively unsophisticated, penetrated early, and not connected to another terrorist group,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

I beg to disagree with Sen. Schumer. This incident was very much connected with “another terrorist group”: the group comprising millions of people who read and believe in the Koran, the Ahadith, and the Sunna.

These jailbirds converted to Islam, and suddenly they were anxious to obtain high explosives and advanced weaponry so that they could kill Jews and American soldiers. That’s the connection.

They went looking for a terrorist group. We’re all lucky that they were too dumb to detect the fact that they were being set up by the FBI, but they were still domestic terrorists who had already joined the world’s largest terrorist group — Islam.

Needless to say, CAIR’s greatest concern is that this incident might once again give Americans the wrong idea about Islam. According to The New York Times:

Also on Thursday, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a civil liberties organization for Muslim Americans, urged the public not to link the case with mainstream Islam.

But even CAIR had to acknowledge that a version of Islam was involved in this conspiracy. And I’ve got some news for them: this is mainstream Islam.

When any fervent believer consults his Koran and discusses his obligations with devout fellow Muslims, violent jihad is the inevitable result.

He doesn’t have to join Al Qaeda to realize his destiny.

Hat tip: REP.

  1. “Liberal American Jews should be counted as Islam’s best friends. But no, somehow they are responsible for everything bad that happens to Muslims.”

    That “somehow” may be found in Qur’an 5:82:

    Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and pagans …

  2. Terrorits caught in this country, found guilty need to be dispatched to “paradise” as qucikly as possible. Our prisons are fertile ground for sowing the seeds of jihad and hatred of anything unislamic. Liberal Jews make me very ill with the far left wing causes they supprot. Being a very CONSERVATIVE, and to the right Jew, I find this sad and troubling.
    I see them as traitors to all the reasons why we are free and have the liberties that we do.

  3. Let’s not forget that rednecks in Virginia like Virgil Goode are the real enemy. We have to pre denounce the Virginia bigots and do it strongly to muzzle their clannish ways.

    We need to double Muslim immigration and show our reverence for our first Muslim born president who says he was never Muslim but won’t reveal his files from his adoption into an official Muslim religious nation.

    The ever helpful people at DHS should be sending a warning to look out for rednecks toting bibles. Those are the type who are our real enemy in Afghanistan, and we just exposed a cell of them.

  4. American Jews have always tilted to the left in most elections, but I think the time is fact approaching when they will be forced to take a second look at many of their positions. This is change you can count on.

  5. The use of the Jews is only a handy excuse. ‘Authentic’ Islam wages war against ALL others. Historically, Jews just happened to be in close proximity. We are not far behind.

  6. Amazing collection of naivety, ignorance and sloppy thinking.

    The use of Jews is not an excuse for anything, hate of Jews is an organic part of the Religion of Piss.

    Historically, Jews just happened to be in close proximity
    Don’t make excuses for Mohameddians. There are hundred of millions of them who have never been close than 1000 miles from any Jew. Yet they they are good and ready to kill a Jew.

    It is part of their religious DNA.

  7. Ron Russell:

    I don’t share your optimism about the leftist Jewish population. My wife’s office management is majority Jewish, which means she gets a daily ration of extreme left politics (which is of course a polar opposite of what she gets from me).

    From what I know of these people and of my own experiences, I am convinced they will continue to support their ideology (they are leftists first and Jews a very distant second) till death.

    One woman in particular (the office manager) would with the chants of ‘Allah Akbar’ in the background, would be blaming George W. Bush, as the knife wielded by a jihadist cuts her throat.
