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.
It’s also news to Israel. Ahmadinejad seems quite peaceful, right? Also, when I think of Iran’s proxies in Lebanon, also Shiite, for some reason peace is not what they remind me of!
I was there, I’m Muslim, and I’ve also been a construction worker. The contractor is Muslim, and we put the flag on there because we like this country. I hope you’re not disappointed! :)
Most of us don’t like the current administration, but they’re about to leave anyway which is an example of the good things about America! What is ‘America’ today may not be ‘America’ in four years, which is a constant source of both fear and hope for all of us I think.
And you may also be interested that I heard a lot of spontaneous complaints about the shame terrorists are bringing to our religion as I was walking around. Maybe you should come when we build the next mosque! :)
If a Muslim flies the American flag up-side-down that states, "America is in distress" while building an enemy compound (Mosques are not innocent religious centers), I would interpret the signal as a challenge to America ... we (Muslims) are here, and you (Americans) are in distress ... under attack ... a modern day Kruschev banging his shoe at the U.N. shouting, "We will bury you."
Check it out.
Towards annihilation and oblivion.
When Muslim women stop wearing head-scarves in public, then Americans will begin to trust you.
More misguided victims of an evil society!
Another one post wonder. I suspect this is the last we will hear from whoever it really is.
