Moroccan would-be synagogue bomber gets five years in prison
New York Post ^ | 4/26/2013 | LAURA ITALIANO

The Boston Marathon explosions were on the minds of officials in Manhattan today as a would-be city synagogue bomber was sentenced to five years prison.

Mohamed Mamdouh, 22, a naturalized citizen from Morocco, had pleaded guilty in a closed-court proceeding last year to conspiracy and weapons possession as crimes of terror; his co-defendant, Algerian citizen Ahmed Ferhani, got a ten-year sentence last month as the scheme's mastermind.

The two had been taped during an eight-month NYPD undercover operation plotting to throw a grenade into an unspecified synagogue, and to wire multiple bombs to a single detonator so as to blow up several synagogues simultaneously.

Ferhani was arrested in a sting operation on Manhattan's West Side in May, '11 as he purchased two operable Browning semi-automatic pistols, one operable Smith and Wesson revolver, ammo and an inert grenade from an undercover. Mamdouh was arrested as he waited a few blocks away.

Why do we import any foreign citizens?

Because they can score 50% on an American history exam.

I have taken it, and I got a 90%.

Foreign immigrants only need a 60%.

Five years is an amazingly short time for plotting mass murder. I would have suggested five decades.

Seems Muzzie attacks will be becoming the new norm with the current weak and sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood president. You’d almost think he’s assisting them which might be the very case. Why he hasn’t been impeached yet eludes me unless this is what’s occurring:

Revelation 13:4

People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”

Well, I’m being “oppressed” right here in my own country and I can assure you, there will be consequences. I was born here, raised here, educated here, worked 40+ years here, paid taxes (seemed like forever) here, served in the military (both here and abroad), so what gives the muzzies a leg up on ME?

Off topic here. Speaking of history, I recall Rush saying how you can get a degree in history from Bowdoin without a single American history class.

We cannot survive if we do not know what we defend.

As for muzzies, if we cannot pin islam as our blood enemy we are likewise doomed.

I wonder who got to Michele Bachmann after she asked if Obama ever entertained the muslim brotherhood at La Casa Blanca.

You are a domestic opponent, a political threat. Muzzies are political allies.

Yes...they are moderate moozlums because they planned on only using “a few” grenades. They shouldn’t get years in prison wasting taxpayers’ money housing them, they should get .40 in the skull.
