Posted on 06/09/2006 7:50:15 AM PDT by areafiftyone
June 9, 2006 -- The Queens chapter of an international jihadist group - founded by the Brooklyn College grad accused of being an al Qaeda sympathizer - is terrorizing people in the extremist's old stomping grounds, residents said yesterday.
"They have a lot of hatred [but] the police said they can't do anything about them," Kana Chauhan, president of the Jackson Heights Merchants Association, said of the radical group Al Muhajiroun.
The organization is tied to suspected terrorist ally Syed "Fahad" Hashmi, a disciple of Syrian cleric Omar Bakri who was banned from speaking on English college campuses.
The Queens-bred Hashmi, who was arrested in London Wednesday on charges he moved funds and military gear to notorious terror camps in Pakistan, founded the local chapter of the extremist group. Each weekend, it sets up its hate-spewing operation on 37th Avenue and 74th Street.
"They're against America, they make trouble," local merchant Amarjit Singh said. "Whatever they say is really nasty."
Hashmi, who has called the United States "the biggest terrorist in the world" and is a fan of homegrown Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh, was indicted last month in Manhattan. He's fighting extradition in Britain.
Meanwhile, nearly every Saturday for more than a year, Hashmi's buddies - who call themselves the Islamic Thinkers - have unloaded their propaganda from a minivan and set up a table festooned with anti-U.S. banners and fliers.
Then, shouting and using a megaphone, the young firebrands - most are in their 20s and early 30s - walk the street spewing hate.
"They display pictures of people dying in the war. They want people to feel they're right and get them thinking against [President] Bush and America," said Sarabjit Damber, 24.

"Can't do anything about them ..." -- I HATE that wienie kind of thinking.
Something gives me the feeling that people are finally going to get fed up with this sort of government inaction and begin to take matters into their own hands. Personally, I don't think this would be a bad thing at all.
To paraphrase the great, now-retired Bob Grant...what are these people doing in my country?
Reminds me of that Charles Bronson movie.... :)
These subhuman scum are just begging for it....
I am surprise patriotic New Yorkers would tolerate this kind of thing. Seems like someone would kindly beat them to a pulp.
Yes they are......and when it starts happening.....I'll bring the popcorn, you bring the beverages...k? :)
This cannot be true.
These are members, in good standing, of the religion of peace[or is it pieces?} .
They cannot, according to their religion, hate, engage in violent activities, or murder.
I believe that this is a case of mistaken identity.
Any democrat or liberal would know that the individuals who do these deeds are White men and it is all Bush's fault.
There are probably people living in JH from more foreign countries and speaking more different languages than any other neighborhood on the planet. Most are simply trying to make it in NYC and the US so their kids can come live in your town. They avoid/ignore these creeps. but I can guarantee you that there atre hundreds of eyes and ears recording every word and every face.
Lenny and Vinnie left Jackson Heights a long time ago. You may be able to find Aswan and Vishal there, or Jeremy and Chad fresh back from their civil union ceremony in Vermont.
They use the freedom we allow them to promote their anti-freedom theology.
Maybe a table could be set up by them with tell the truth about islam literature.
Sure they can. Like looking the other direction while the merchants open fire.

What a Lady.
We need Dr. Bose to create a heavy-duty noise-cancellation device to nullify their Bull-Shiite.
I'll have case of cold Yuengling ready.
