FBI, NYPD Arrest 4 in Alleged Plot to Bomb NY Synagogues
NBC New York ^ | May 20, 2009 | Jonathan Dienst

Posted on 05/20/2009 6:55:16 PM PDT by Sergeant Tim

EXCLUSIVE: Four New York City men were arrested Wednesday in connection with an alleged plot to blow up New York City synagogues and other city locations, WNBC's Jonathan Dienst has learned.

Raids by the FBI-NYPD Joint Terrorist Task Force in the Bronx captured the suspected ringleader and three followers in what law enforcement sources are calling a homegrown terrorist plot.

Investigators stress the suspects' meetings had been infiltrated early on and there was "no chance" the alleged plot could succeed.

Investigators said several of the suspects are Muslims who allegedly talked about destroying two Jewish temples, including at least one in the Riverdale section of the Bronx.

The men ordered and accepted delivery of materials they believed were bomb-making ingredients, authorities said. But investigators said they made sure the materials the suspects received were inert. Officials tell WNBC they moved in now so the alleged plot could not progress any further.

The four men are in custody and are expected to be arraigned Thursday in White Plains federal court on terrorism-related counts.

Boy, I hope nobody had to resort to waterboarding to get info leading to these arrests.

It would be better to have people dead in the synagogues than to....

Hm.

By which time this will be old news and nobody will care.

At least nobody in the weak-stream media.

Understandable. They don't want to face charges of "flagrant Islamophobia", which, in today's world, is more of a crime than plotting to blow up synagogues.

The march to Orwell's "1984" continues.

E-mail received rfom WABC radio NY...

Four Arrests in NYC Terror Plot ABC News is reporting that the FBI has made four arrests in an alleged New York City terrorism plot. Initial reports are that the four had been scheming to blow up a Jewish synagogue in the Bronx with a car bomb. The suspects also allegedly attempted to procure stinger missiles to shoot down military aircraft near West Point. At least three appear to be radicalized recent converts to Islam, according to law enforcement sources. For the latest, tune to 77 WABC or listen online at http://www.wabcradio.com/listen

“Boy, I hope nobody had to resort to waterboarding to get info leading to these arrests.”

I will add that I sure hope none of the suspects were kicked in the head while being arrested. That would offend the many Libs (probably some whose lives were saved) and certain anti-cop Freepers posting on this site.

Yeah and Curtis Sliwa (who should friggin’ know better), had on some ABC/reporter clown, and both of them are giving out TOO MUCH INFORMATION Biden style.

Have they ever heard of misinformation or holding back details... (shakes head).

We’ve only been telling Homeland about Newburgh for five years. Watch they don’t close the terror mosque down... just like al Farooq in Brooklyn and 4 others in NY and NJ we know preach jihad.

I’m sure Peter King told him on the DL to cool it...

As long as he’s been on the streets, Curtis should know better. He asked ridiculous questions that shouldn’t be asked or answered, and the rube reporter was spouted... and Curtis kept on asking more. If I were down with that group, I would know everything the feds had now. (and use it for slander or some BS if disproven and they cut the guys loose).

Sono, better get your counter-protest gear ready for the trial... This isn’t Britain.
