Two South Florida Residents Charged with Terrorism Violations
U.S. Attorneys Office
November 30, 2012
Southern District of Florida
FORT LAUDERDALETwo residents of Oakland Park, in Broward County, Florida, have been charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction (explosives), announced Wifredo A. Ferrer, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida; Michael B. Steinbach, acting Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Miami Division; and members of the South Florida Joint Terrorism Task Force.
Yesterday, Raees Alam Qazi, a 20-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan, and his brother, Sheheryar Alam Qazi, a 30-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan, were taken into custody by FBI agents in Fort Lauderdale executing probable cause arrests. Both defendants were charged today in a two-count indictment alleging that they conspired to provide material support to terrorists and conspired to use a weapon of mass destruction.
The Qazi brothers made their initial appearance at 2:30 p.m. today in federal court in Fort Lauderdale. The charge of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists carries a maximum potential sentence of 15 years in prison. The charge of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction carries a maximum potential sentence of life in prison.
U.S. Attorney Ferrer stated, Since September 11, 2001, the top priority of the Department of Justice and this U.S. Attorneys Office has been to deter and prosecute acts of terrorism. This mandate will not change.
There is simply no higher purpose than defending our nation from those who seek to do us harm. We owe a great debt of gratitude to the agents and prosecutors who worked so hard to keep us safe. Any potential threat posed by these two individuals has been disrupted.
The FBIs number one priority is counterterrorism and we continue to work with our partners to protect the U.S. and its people from harm, said acting Special Agent in Charge Steinbach of the FBIs Miami Division. To be clear, this is not an indictment against a particular community or religion. Instead, todays indictment charges two individuals for conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and to use a weapon of mass destruction.
According to the indictment, from at least July 2011 through November 29, 2012, the defendants conspired to provide material support and resourcesincluding property, services, funding, lodging, communications equipment, personnel, and transportationknowing and intending that this support be used in preparation for and in carrying out a violation of lawnamely, a conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction. The indictment further alleges that during this time frame the defendants conspired to use a weapon of mass destruction (explosives) against persons and property within the United States.
The case is being investigated by the FBIs South Florida Joint Terrorism Task Force. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Karen E. Gilbert, of the U.S. Attorneys Office for the Southern District of Florida, with assistance from the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Departments National Security Division.
America needs more Naturalised citizens like these two Pakistani pukes.
Lets have a general amnesty and Naturalise everyone.
ACK! This is 15 minutes away from me!
Although I cannot say I am surprised.
> Sheheryar Alam Qazi, 30, and 20-year-old Raees Alam Qazi.
People with names like this should not even be allowed into the country, let alone become citizens.
This is not “racist”. It’s self-preservation.
What was their target? Has anyone heard?
If its in Florida then it must be someplace connected by a mouse. Or harry Potter.
What was their target? Has anyone heard?................................ My gwess is probably an area where there are lots of men’s clubs? The SE coast of FL would fit the description.
Not to worry, Muslims are our friends.
Ain’t multiculturalism grand?
We need to fund a diversity study on after coming here why they hate us. The next step is allow more immigration from this oppressed minority group and set up funding,housing, jobs,educational set asides too. Finally release them with an apology for the racism they experienced with a large cash settlement and life time exemption from all airline screens so they don’t get their feeling hurt.

In Urdu language , Qazi means “Judge”. There last names are Qazi, it means one of there ancestor must be Qazi.
Wrong. It's a well known fact that during World War II we not only allowed German immigration - but we encouraged Colleges and Universities to open their doors and science departments to German and Japanese youth...

The overwhelming preponderance of Japanese and German immigrants were loyal to the United States, not to the ideologies reigning in their respective nations.
In the case of German immigrants, most of them were persecuted in Germany, in particular Jews, those of Slavic descent, and “Gypsies”.
Oh, and saboteurs and spies were promptly tried by military tribunal and hanged.
