Two Christians Arrested Over Terror Plot in NY…Err…Scratch That…
With names like Mohammad and Ahmed, I’m going to go out on a limb here and posit that they are followers of the agathokakological Allah and his pestiferous prophet:
Two men arrested over alleged terror plot in New York
May 12, 2011 – NYPost
Two men arrested in relation to an alleged terror plot in New York City were of Moroccan and Algerian descent, FOX News reported Thursday.
Moroccan Mohammad Mamdouh and Algerian Ahmed Serhani were arrested late Wednesday and were expected to be charged under the state’s terrorism laws. Both were American citizens.
In an unusual move, Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance’s office decided to prosecute after the FBI declined to get involved, sources told The Post.
Serhani was a drugs dealer, FOX News reported, with a source saying he was allegedly trying to sell narcotics to finance the purchase of a weapon for a possible attack on a synagogue. However, the pair had not actually purchased any weapons at the time of their arrests.
The men were expected to be arraigned Thursday and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was scheduled to address the media at an afternoon news conference, The New York Times reported.
The plot was not in retaliation for the killing of Usama bin Laden, a source said, since it had been planned before his death.
Officials did not disclose what had led to the arrests.Explore posts in the same categories: FBI, Muslims in The USA, security, Terrorists
