NEW YORK, USA (UPI): Relatives and friends said the four men arrested in an alleged plot to bomb jet fuel tanks at Kennedy International Airport in New York were wrongly accused.
"The man is no extremist," Rudy Thorne, a lifelong friend of Abdel Nur in Guyana told the Friday's Miami Herald.
Another suspect, Kareem Ibrahim, told a friend in Trinidad that his Shiite branch of Islam meant peace, not overthrowing governments, Wendell Eversley, the friend, told the newspaper.
The Herald said the four suspects -- Nur, Ibrahim, Abdul Kadir, and Russell Defreitas -- are black converts to Islam and three have ties to Jamaat al Muslimeen, a Sunni group that tried to overthrow the government of Trinidad in 1990.
Jamaat al Muslimeen has denied any involvement with the JFK plot to detonate a fuel pipeline and jet fuel tanks at the airport.
Kadir, Nur and Ibrahim are in a Trinidad jail awaiting extradition to the United States. Defreitas is in custody in New York.

Oh yeah, I’m hanging on every single word...of course these men are peaceful!
Go sell that Shiite somewhere else, we’re about full up here with the “converts”.
“The man is no extremist,”
That is probably true. He is mainstream. But he’s still a terrorist.....
You know I find the thread enforcers to be extremely tiresome.
Personally I like more than one thread. Just ignore them. You gave a good answer.
Yeah, I’ve always thought that “terrorist” is a term that is widely abused. Those guys were “plain-cloths enemy combatants fighting for a primative cause using barbaric tactics”.
This is from the horse’s mouth. If they’re in Trinidad and they’re Muslim, all odds, they’re violent and also anti-white.
Check tagline below.
Actually, this is more grammatically correct.
In order to successfully pull off any operation, one of you're best assets is to look like you're doing what you're supposed to be doing.
So a well and fully indoctrinated assassin believes he is doing God's work and pulls the trigger with no internal impunity.
And that Islam is peace crap?
Of course it is ...when the planet is converted to Islam, there is peace.
We live in dangerous times.

Is the flag photo shopped?
Sounds like the same story told by the “Oregon 7” who infiltrated Intel in Hillsboro, OR.

What’s the story here? Was the construction crew protesting having to cap the minaret?
He's just a mainstream terrorist, not an extremist terrorist.
Jamaat al Muslimeen has denied any involvement with the JFK plot
With this reliable source vouching for them, I'm much relieved.
Relatives and friends said the four men were wrongly accused.
“The man is no extremist,” Rudy Thorne, a friend of Abdel Nur in Guyana told the Miami Herald.
Ok well ,If you say so.. then just let them go....
“There are apparently extensive tape-recorded and filmed conversations about this plot. Once those come out for the public to see, lets see what they say about these nice boys.”
But will the New York Times publish these tapes, considering that they also seem to think these are such nice guys? Your betters are telling you this is nothing to be concerned about. Why do you keep hyping this?
Read my tagline. It’s appropriate.
I'd say they couldn't get a union to do the work, so it was scabbed out.
Whenever you hear someone refer to the authority of "friends", whether a journalist or, dare I say, Freeper, they have already lost the argument.
