Posted on 05/12/2011 9:31:12 AM PDT by Nachum
Two Americans have been arrested by New York City police for allegedly plotting to attack a synagogue in the New York area, Fox News has learned.
One source described the case as the latest example of homegrown radicalization. The two men were identified as Mohammad Mamdouh, of Moroccan descent, and Ahmed Serhani, of Algerian descent.
Serhani allegedly made a general statement about wanting to attack a synagogue - though no specific synagogue was mentioned, according to initial information obtained by Fox News. With a history of drug dealing, Serhani was hoping to make enough money to purchase weapons and possibly explosives for the attack, one source said.
The plan, however, apparently never became operational, and the pair never acquired weapons for it, the source said.

Those pesky Amish are at it again.
Yep, there’s a reason that this son of a New York Jewish family has quite the arsenal in his home, waiting for these worthless SOBs to break down the door. I’m not walking quietly into the railway car like my ancestors.
And, just as an aside, concerning the issue which always comes up on the Jewish threads.... I have no idea why my relatives are so foolish as to vote Democrat or liberal. Many of them do. Not all of us, though.
Mohammed and Ahmed, not Bill and Steve, were planning the attack.
Liberals keep saying not to jump to conclusions and all that. But it seems that far more terror incidents are inspired by Islam than by other radical ideologies.
One of the liberal favorites to talk about is abortion clinic violence. But the numbers of such incidents is far smaller than Islamic inspired attacks.
All of the violence is wrong, if we have to debate the liberals on the issues. But the liberal view that we can’t say anything about Islamic terror/violence because of abortion clinic violence is wrong headed logic, in my opinion.
Not sure I'd describe "Mohammad" or "Ahmed" as "homegrown". Sounds like they, or at the very least their parents, were "grown" in a Muslim backwater dung heap, of which the world certainly has no shortage...
the only thing surprising here is that only ONE of the perps is named Mohammad
I still have a lot of family that waits for the gub'mint to save everyone.
The job you and I have is trying not go insane when having a conversation with them
I think the name, “Ahmed” is a derivative of “Mo’ Ham Ed!”.
Two hundred thirty six words and “Muslim” not mentioned once. Fox has become just another sorry sack of PC MSM crap.
How could you say such a thing? Why, they're every bit as "homegrown" as Wally Cleaver or Greg Brady.
Or, for that matter, as William Ayers.
Ahmed \a(h)-med\ as a boy's name is pronounced AH-med. It is of Arabic origin, and the meaning of Ahmed is "highly praised or one who constantly thanks God". [It is] One of the many names of the prophet Muhammad, and popular with American Muslims. The name is also commonly used throughout the Islamic world. Football player Ahmad Plumer.So basically they were both named for the Prophet, peace be on Him.
Ahmed has 10 variant forms: Achmad, Achmed, Ahmaad, Ahmad, Ahmet, Ahmod, Amad, Amadi, Amahd and Amed.

And our next job will be explaining to them why they can’t live in the basement and use our stuff after their beliefs have destroyed the economy.
