Religion of peace update: Four Muslim extremists arrested over plot to bomb synagogue and shoot down planesTopics: Understanding Islam, War on Terror
The FBI is holding four rather clueless but dangerous Muslim men, one Muslim-born - the other three Muslim converts in prison, for plotting to bomb a synagogue and shoot down military jets using guided missiles:
[...} They were arrested in New York City last night after planting what they believed to be bombs in cars outside the Jewish temple in New York's Bronx, officials said.Just think of the carnage that could have occurred, had the explosives been real and the Islamists had not been caught.
But the plastic explosives were fake and had been bought along with an inactive missile from undercover FBI agents conducting a sting operation, according to police
[...] One, of Afghan descent, was Muslim-born while the other three converted in prison, officials said, adding that some were of Arabic descent and one is of Haitian descent.
They have been charged with conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction within the United States and conspiracy to acquire and use anti-aircraft missiles, the U.S. attorney's office said. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
