Queens imam guilty of helping terror wannabe Zazi says 'I've signed my own death sentence'
NY Daily News ^ | 3-4-10 | John Marzulli

Posted on 03/04/2010 5:22:34 PM PST by STARWISE

A Queens imam pleaded guilty Thursday to lying to feds who were investigating whether he tipped off wannabe terrorist Najibullah Zazi that he was being watched.

Ahmad Afzali faces six months in prison and deportation 90 days later under the plea deal - which he said amounts to an execution.

"I just signed my death sentence," the Afghan national said outside court, explaining that he has no idea where he would go after leaving the United States.

"I'm between a rock and a wall."

Afzali lost his composure several times during the proceeding before Brooklyn Federal Judge Frederic Block, wiping tears from his face with a handkerchief.

In a prepared statement, he said the NYPD had asked him to provide information about Zazi and two associates, Adis Medunjanin and Zarein Ahmedzay, whom he'd known from his mosque since they were teenagers.

"The police interest in these men led me to believe that they were involved in some criminal activity but I had no idea of its seriousness," Afzali said.

Prosecutors say Zazi, Medunjanin and Ahmedzay were plotting to detonate homemade explosive devices in the Manhattan subway system shortly after the 9/11 anniversary last September.

On Hannity, the former Hamas son who converted to Christianity and turned around his life, Mousab Hassan, made it CRYSTAL CLEAR that ALL Muslims who follow the Koran believe in Jihad... it's the highest rung of the ladder. The video is a MUST see .. if ONLY, our govt, military and intel agencies would accept what this knowledgeable man is saying.

He's VERY brave .. God bless and protect him.

Oh, man up you whiny bastard....do your silly six months and just have your lawyer arrange for deportation to Mexico (you'll pass for a hispanic); then hire a coyote and come on back in.

Boo-freaking-hoo.

Afzali lost his composure several times during the proceeding before Brooklyn Federal Judge Frederic Block, wiping tears from his face with a handkerchief.

He had no trouble signing a death sentence for the infidels innocents targeted in his sick plot.

Makes me want to smack him right upside the prayer bump. Disgusting slimebag.

P.S. I loved how Mousab Hassan came right out and said that there was no such thing as a "Moderate Muslim".

I watched his interview with Hannity and I’ve been thinking about buying his book. Sounds very interesting, doesn’t it?

I don’t know what to think about Ahmad Afzali. He’s on his own.

This is the guy who tipped off the other plotters, so they could escape, after he was questioned by police. Perhaps the peaceful Somalis or Yemenis will take him in.

In that case, we need to give the same plea deal to the Gitmo terrorists. Thanks STARWISE.

Son of Hamas founder reveals how he saved Israeli President from terror plot

###

Israeli President Shimon Peres is among the many who owe their lives to the son of a founder of Hamas, according to a dramatic account to be published this week.

Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef - Hamas chief since August 200, will reveal the heroics of how he became an informant for the Israeli domestic security service Shin Bet, as a top agent codenamed the ‘Green Prince’ and the risks he took during a decade as a spy for Israel.

In his book, Son of Hamas, he describes his remarkable double life as a top Israeli agent, his conversion to Christianity and how he swapped the West Bank for the West Coast. he disclosure that among his activities he thwarted a 2001 plot to blow up Peres, then Foreign Minister and now the Israeli head of state, will also heighten the risk he now faces himself from potential assassins.

According to Yousef’s account, he was serving as aide and driver to his father, Sheikh Hassan Yousef, when he visited one of Hamas’ top terrorists, a deadly bomb-maker called Abdhullah Barghouti.

The Hamas leader urged Barghouti to rein in his campaign of killing after two major attacks that summer in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, because he feared Israel would invade the West Bank in retaliation.

However, Barghouti revealed that he had already dispatched four devices to blow up the car of Peres.

He agreed to make a call to the men now in charge of the bombs and the younger Yousef was sent to buy a new mobile phone that would be destroyed after the conversation so it could not be traced.

The Green Prince immediately passed the number to Shin Bet, which eavesdropped on the call, allowing it to foil the operation.

It was one of dozens of suicide-bombing attempts and assassination plots that he helped prevent, including a plan to kill one of Israel’s most important religious figures, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, spiritual leader of the conservative Shas party.

Great post Dinah Lord. I think it would be good to shoot this piece of dirt in the head, wrap his carcass in pigskin and dumb it off at a Mosque.

"Note that imams rarely desire to become martyrs themselves."

Amen; something I've been saying here for years.

Oh....we can now add "the occasional female Speaker of the House" to this same "go do it; I'll sit here and applaud you as you die" group.
