Velentzas is ethnically Greek and was born in Miami, Florida. She lived in various homeless shelters as a teenager and converted to Islam at age 17.

The evidence for the case against the women included objects found in their apartments, allegedly including propane gas tanks, soldering tools, pipes, a pressure cooker, fertilizer, flux, machetes, daggers, and bomb recipes.

Velentzas was arrested by the FBI in her home along with her alleged accomplice, Asia Siddiqui, on April 2, 2015

Between August 2014-April 2015, Velentzas and Siddiqui met with an undercover agent whom the two women believed to be a fellow jihadist. During this time, the women allegedly educated themselves on how to build explosives, and collected potential bomb-building supplies from stores such as Home Depot. The evidence for the case against the women included objects found in their apartments, allegedly including a propane gas tanks, soldering tools, pipes, a pressure cooker, fertilizer, flux, machetes, daggers, and bomb recipes.

Asia Siddiqui was born in Saudi Arabia and is a U.S. citizen

This shows how effective our anti-terrorist sting operations are.

Jihadis cannot organize or they are found out.

None of this changes the fact that the NY Post is an anti-second amendment, pro boot licking of the NYPD piece of feces.

From CNN:

When the women were arrested, police found propane gas tanks, soldering tools, car bomb instructions, jihadist literature, machetes and several knives in their homes, the release said.

Let’s not jump to any conclusions here folks ...
