As I’m sure you have all heard, some crazies were arrested in New York Thursday after buying weapons (lots of weapons) from an undercover cop. These weapons included illegal weapons, grenades, semi-automatic pistols, ammunition, and bullet proof vests. Their motive? To commit an act of terrorism, which was supposedly driven by antisemitism. According to this NYT article, they also believe that Muslims are “mistreated” throughout the world. They were going to blow up synagogues and churches! “They wanted to kill Jews.” My gosh. How lovely.
First off, congrats to those cops who caught these loonies. They weren’t able to carry out with their plan, which is fantastic!
But where in the world is the FBI? There was “no involvement from the F.B.I. or the United States attorney’s office.” So let me get this straight… The FBI, the FEDERAL Bureau of Investigation (or aka the Federal Bureau of Incompetence, lol), refuses to take on a terrorist case? They refuse to federally try these two terrorists? The state of New York now has to try these mentally insane men in their State Supreme Court.
Anyone else see this as strange, or is it just me? Maybe I’m making too big a deal out of this… But I don’t think I am.
The FBI should have taken this terrorist case… Oh, I know the article says they take major terrorist cases. Good for them. That’s their job. But can we define major terrorist cases and minor terrorist cases please? I mean, what the heck is the difference?! I’d like to know what a minor terrorist case is because every act of terrorism seems pretty major to me! People are at risk in both kinds. And if they’re enacted, people die. Innocent Americans die.
And Mr. Bloomberg, Mr. “They don’t take all the cases,” give me a break… of course not dummy. Don’t ya think this case is kinda, hmm I don’t know, important maybe? Don’t ya think that the FBI should take ALL terrorist cases? Don’t ya? Yeah, obviously not.
But let’s think about this. Can’t you infer from the FBI not taking this case that the federal government is unconcerned with this terrorist threat? And how are we, as Americans, supposed to trust the federal government to protect us at home?
Our troops are doing a great job overseas, trying to kill terrorist. I applaud them and God Bless them.
But the problem is not with our troops. It’s with our government. It’s with the FBI. They have a duty to protect us! They have a duty to make sure that justice is served. They have a duty to put those two wack-jobs in jail FOREVER. They’re not doing their job… I say let’s fire them all. 😛 Just kidding, but seriously. They definitely need to get their act together. BIG TIME.
I love the interview with, ahem, MR. Ferhani’s father. (MISTER! I am not calling that idiot Mr. Please.) So Terrorist Ferhani’s father had some stuff to say about his son. “He’s a very good kid”, “He got involved with a bad kid. He’s a naïve person. He has a very good heart, but if somebody tries to tell him something, he always believes it.”
Oh please… I know it’s hard to believe your son is a terrorist, but come on. You had NO idea? None? Are you sure you’re his father? Are you sure you’re not a terrorist? Raises some questions, does it not?
Let’s talk hypothetically for a minute. All of a sudden, I started wanting to do some not nice things, like hey! blowing up some synagogues. Ok. I sure as heck know that my parents would begin to see a difference in my demeanor, my ideals, my personality if I was such a nice little girl when I was younger. And they’d probably call the cops on me. So don’t give me that stuff that his father just had NO idea his son held radical beliefs… and was going to bomb the city’s Jews.
And definitely don’t dish me this crap… “He said his son was raised as a Muslim, in Algeria, before the family fled in 1994 at the height of its civil war. ‘But he’s not a religious fanatic,’ Mr. Ferhani said. ‘He doesn’t pray; he drinks.’”
Ok ok. He drinks… How much? Could the alcoholism have anything to do with the crazy, bizarre, insane, radical, STUPID, behavior? Could it maybe have started to mess with his head, even just a ‘lil bit? Was he doing any other drugs?
And now WHOA. How freaky is this? “As [Margaret E. Gandy (the prosecutor)] spoke [about holding the two men without bail], Mr. Ferhani lifted his head and mouthed words that could not be heard from the gallery.” Uummmmmm… I wish I knew what words he spoke. Maybe a prayer to Allah to strike all Americans down because they are horrible, HORRIBLE, people. Like father like son, perhaps?
And then, as if it couldn’t get any better, the two mentally unstable crazies denied plotting a terrorist attack. Denied it. And two lawyers are defending them! That’s the scariest part of this… that two lawyers believe that they weren’t planning on attacking Jewish Americans.
God help us all.
