The Jihadi Virus in Our Jails
Jerry Gordon comment: The New York Times has a definitive front page article, “Case Against Four Ex-Convicts: Steps and Missteps on Tape” ( a bit PC headline) the banner on the continuing page reads ” The Terror Plot: a homegrown; checkered past”. What is revealed is that three of the ex-cons were prison converts to Islam and two were alleged infrequent attendees at the Newburgh, New York Mosque where they met the FBI informant. The assistant Imam alleged that he tried to steer members away from encouinters with a government agent. Their likely defense will be ‘entrapment’ in this FBI sting operation akin to that used in the recent Fort Dix Six trial and convictions of terror plotters, that we have written about in “The War on Terror Comes to Cherry Hill.” At issue is whether their jailhouse Jihadis frequented Jamaaat ul-Fuqra compounds in upstate New York.

Not one word from the president on the jihadists’ intended victims, motives or means.
No comfort for the reported targets in the Big Apple, still raw from the Scare Force One rattling that so vainly and recklessly simulated 9/11.
No condemnation for the accused plotters. (Continue Reading this Article)
