Shocker: NY Muslim Terrorists Were Losers, "Intellectually Challenged"

More is coming out about the four Newburgh men who were arrested in a plot to carry out attacks on synagogues in New York City and shoot down C5 Galaxy transport aircraft at Stewart ANG base in Newburgh.

You'll hardly find it surprising that the terror team is bunch of dead-end convicts who converted to Islam in prison, and that none are a threat to join Mensa:

One is a petty criminal who spent a day in 2002 snatching purses and shooting at people with a BB gun from an SUV. His lawyer calls him "intellectually challenged."

Three have histories of drug convictions, one of them for selling narcotics in a school zone. The man prosecutors portrayed as the instigator of the scheme said he smoked pot the day he planned to blow up the temples.

In other words, if they hadn't decided to become terrorists, they would have fit perfectly in ACORN.

As it is, one of the uncles of the suspects feels that he knows where to place the blame:

"The Onta I know wouldn't do something like this, but the new Onta, yeah," said Richard Williams, an uncle. "He wasn't raised this way. All this happened when he became a Muslim in prison."

It's interesting how people who convert to just about any other religion in prison—say, Christianity as a popular choice—come out of prison and often use their newfound zeal as a convert to make something out of their lives.

A blogger friend of mine recently remarked in a private email (hence no name) about how her brother turned his life around after going to prison and finding God there. The one-time petty criminal and recreational drug user is now clean and sober and found a work ethic that has amazed his sister. He now owns a commercial landscaping company. He recently purchased ten acres of land with a pond, and just started building a dream home with his new bride. All of this occurred just six years after he walked out of the prison gates with nothing but his faith and support form his family. He gives all the credit for his phenomenal success in such a short amount of time to God.

If James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen has been successful in their quest to carry out murderous synagogue bombings in Riverdale and managed to bring down a C5 Galaxy carrying even part of its full fuel load of 332,500 pounds—enough to fill more than six railcars—and managed to burn a massive swath of their hometown to the ground—perhaps the massive jet veering into the 2,700 student Newburgh Free Academy (which is very near a landing jet's flight path) in the worst, worst case scenario—they would no doubt give all the "glory" of their massacres to Allah.

It is interesting, and sometimes insane what adherents of different religions think brings glory to their God, and worth noting that what these converts would have lauded as the will of their God parallels what we would expect from the will of Satan himself.

As for Masjid al-Ikhlas, the mosque these men shared on Washington Terrace in Newburgh, I'd like to hope that they were not involved in the plot in any way, or were working with the authorities in bringing down this band of murder-minded misfits. If they were encouraging jihad, however, I hope the authorities shut them down.

There is a freedom of religion in this country, but that stops when the individual practitioners or promoters of the religion use it to destroy the lives of others.

Update: And radicals they are. Phyllis Chesler does some digging and reveals the radical Islamist roots fo Masjid al-Ikhlas.

Perhaps Peter King or another New York politician should consider finding a way to close such radical centers that seem to do little more than condone and organize criminals to become indoctrinated mass murderers.

You hit the nail on the head vis-a-vis Prison and reforming. My neighbor in Florida did some 'hard time' and now is doing the same exact thing that the guy you mentioned. He owns his own landscaping company, and regularlly watches out for Household Six and the kinder. I always make time to have a few beers with him when I'm home, and withh the exception of one 'bad night' with his drug addled brother causing trouble, he's the perfect neighbor, and I trust him to watch over my family. Every time I have to leave, he asks that we pray together for my safety and that of our respective families. No matter where you find Him, The Father (Heavenly, Type One Each, Supreme, Unique, Mark One, Mod Zero) good things can happen...

Unlike the so called "Religion of Peace"

I find this a strange statement:

"He wasn't raised this way. All this happened when he became a Muslim in prison."

If he wasn't raised that way, why was he is prison in the first place? Just an observation as I read the post.

OK, I don't live in NY. I live out West. But from what I have seen, what exactly are the odds of ANY politician from New York saying or doing anything that could be construed as being "anti-Muslim"? Between fear of PC consequences and fear of an actual physical application of "the Religion of Peace", I can't see any of that lot from either party doing anything. I'd love to be proven wrong.

I blame Bush and the mess he created at Guantanamo. He is obviously responsible for this incident. Just ask Obama.

Has Napolitano issued an important action alert yet?

The first defense from the likes of CAIR and other Islamic groups is normally - mental problems.

Do I read that right? If not ignore the rest... :-)

Suggesting moral equivalence of prison converts to Islam and Christianity? Don't the examples cited self defeat that implication/argument?

The prison imams do not have to start from square one when inculcating hate: A KKK-like hatred of Jews is common among even educated black Americans.
