Purple Jihad: Weapons Cache of “Aspirational” Muslim Terrorists the FBI Refused to Investigate

By Debbie Schlussel

Yesterday, I told you that the FBI refused to investigate the Islamic terrorist plot of Ahmed Ferhani and his friend, Mohammad Mamdouh, in which they plotted to blow up a New York synagogue with grenades, along with the Empire State Building.  The FBI said it was “no big thang” because they were just “aspirational” terrorists and didn’t really plan to actually carry out an “operational” terrorist attack.  Uh, check out the weapons cache, below, including the grenades Ferhani and Mamdouh purchased to carry out the attack.  “Not operational” terrorists?   Looks pretty operational to me.  But leave it to Famous But Incompetent to get it wrong.  The men planned to dress up as Chassidic Jews to carry out their terrorist attack, something Islamic terrorists in Israel often do (and which Muslim Arabs also did in the French movie, “The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob [Les Aventures de Rabbi Jacob],” a 1973 comedy I liked as a kid).

Weapons Cache of Men FBI Said Are Not “Operational” Terrorists:

Yup, the FBI thinks these weapons are just the cache of people who won’t actually carry out terrorist attacks.  Morons.  This is the same FBI, after all, that competes with the NYPD to uncover major terrorist plots and always loses.  The same FBI that ostracized the NYPD for sending terrorism investigators to Israel to learn about Islamic terrorism.  And, now, it’s the same FBI that claims Islamic terrorists aren’t terrorists.  Inspector Clouseau and Sgt. Schultz are bursting with pride.

More about the guys the FBI says were “just aspirational” and not “operational” terrorists–and yes, it appears Ahmed Ferhani might be gay, despite the Islamic terrorist beard of a “Christian girlfriend.”  He was a make-up salesman at Saks Fifth Avenue, not the job of straight men, and quit his job as a cab driver (the official profession of Islamic terrorists) to become a male model.  If I wrote this in a movie, you wouldn’t believe it.  But as I’ve noted on this site, being gay–which is an executable offense in Islam–doesn’t mean you don’t hate Jews every bit as much as your fellow Muslims and doesn’t exclude you as an Islamic terrorist.  (We call this, the “Purple Jihad.”):

One of the terror suspects arrested for allegedly planning to attack New York synagogues dressed as a Hasidic Jew used to work as a make-up salesman for Saks Fifth Avenue, it has emerged.

27-year-old Ahmed Ferhani, who quit his job to try to become a male model, was caught with taxi dispatcher Mohammad Mamdouh, 20, on Tuesday night in a dramatic police sting operation as they tried to acquire a fearsome arsenal of weapons from an undercover NYPD officer. . . .

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. said Ferhani and Moroccan pal Mamdouh were to sneak into ‘a major synagogue in Manhattan’ disguised as Hasidic Jews, complete with ‘peyot’, or side curls, and beards.

He said: ‘He [Ferhani] was committed to violent jihad, and his plan became bigger and more violent with each passing week.’

Mamdouh, of Moroccan descent and Ferhani, of Algerian descent, were arrested late on Tuesday night allegedly trying to buy weapons in exchange for drugs. It was during the sting that one of the suspects confessed to the plot the kill Jews, the court heard.

One of the suspects is a U.S. citizen and the other is a legal resident. Both already had weapons in their possession, police said.

“Aspirational”. . . or “operational?” We know they were going to carry this out. Only the morons in Forever Buttkissing Islam claim otherwise.

The more we allow people like this into our borders, the more plots like this will be planned. And some of them WILL be carried out. It was luck that a conversation was overheard by government drug informants and that the plot was stopped.

It emerged today that both had been arrested for robbery last year. Ferhani has a criminal record for narcotics, and was allegedly trying to sell drugs to fund the gun deal.

Yup, merely “inspirational,” right?

Described as the alleged ringleader of the attack, he moved to America in 1995 when his family sought asylum from war-torn Algeria. He went on to work as a cosmetics salesman at Saks Fifth Avenue, but had been known to police for some time.

Yesterday, Ferhani’s father, J. Ferhani, insisted his son was not an extremist, instead describing him as a wannabe model who drank alcohol and had a Christian girlfriend.

This BS is as believable as the “but my best friend’s Black” line. Anyone remember Mohammed Atta, his alcohol drinking at “The Pink Pony” strip club, and Christian stripper live-in girlfriend? He wasn’t an extremist either, right? Just because some dumbass non-Muslim woman is willing to be the beard or sperm receptacle for Islamic terrorists doesn’t make the Islamic terrorists any less Islamic or any less terrorist.


Is Ahmed Ferhani a Purple Jihadist? He Will Be Once He Gets a New Boyfriend in NY Prison

BTW, if you got any make-up samples from Saks Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, best to throw them out. Think about it: lacing Jewish and Christian women’s make-up samples with arsenic is the perfect terrorist attack and easy to get away with.

Mamdouh, who worked as a taxi dispatcher, moved to the U.S. from Morocco in 1999, and is an American citizen. He was set to serve 90 days in jail under a plea deal for a robbery last October.

He allegedly broke into the home of 23-year-old Joann Ocampo in Queens, stealing property worth $5,000, her laptop, jewellery, a bottle of vodka – and kicking her four-year-old poodle, Lulu, so viciously she ended up with broken ribs.

After hearing about the alleged plot, Miss Ocampo told the Daily News: ‘I’m terrified, to be quite honest. He broke into my house. Luckily, I was not there that night.’ . . .

Police had earlier displayed the pair’s alleged weapon haul, which included two Browning semi-automatic pistols, a Smith and Wesson handgun, ammunition and a hand grenade, at a press conference yesterday after the suspects were arrested. . . .

According to a criminal complaint drafted under state terror laws, the undercover officer had several meetings with the men where Ferhani discussed the idea of attacking a synagogue.

Mamdouh emphasized the need for proper training, the complaint said, so they would not get caught like ‘the one that put the car in Times Square’ – a reference to the failed bombing last year by Faisal Shahzad.

Ferhani suggested disguising himself as a worshipping Jew to infiltrate a synagogue and leaving a bomb inside, the complaint said. He also discussed using grenades, ‘and described pulling the pins and throwing them into the synagogue,’ it added.

On May 5, the undercover officer introduced the men to another officer pretending to be an illegal gun dealer at a meeting where Ferhani stated he needed the weapons “for the cause,” the complaint said.

‘We gonna be victorious,’ it quoted Ferhani as saying.

At a meeting on Wednesday in Manhattan, one of the undercover officers handed Ferhani a bag carrying three handguns, three boxes of ammunition and the inert grenade. As soon as he put the bag into the trunk of a car, he was arrested, the complaint said.

Uh-huh, merely “aspirational,” according to the FBI. You can bet if these guys were Christian or Jewish and targeting a mosque, they’d have been arrested by a football team’s worth of FBI agents eager for publicity.

So, don’t worry, they are not a problem because they are “not tied to any terrorist group,” just Islam. Thank G-d for the NYPD that isn’t so obtuse and PC. Otherwise, the unnamed New York synagogue and the Empire State Building would have a whole lotta dead Americans within.

Has it gotten to the point where the FBI is actively winking and nodding at Islamic terrorists as they attempt to carry out attacks on Jews? The FBI has never been Jew-friendly. We all know that (my cousin, who is Jewish, was rejected from service despite the fact that he’s the most patriotic and upstanding citizen you are likely to find). However, has the FBI actually become a sort of co-conspirator? Scary.

    As Debbie mentioned, the lead agent in the NY FBI office is an Egyptian Muslim. He made sure Jewish translators were not hired.

    And if he’s still there your guess is as good as hers why they didn’t pursue this case.

    Muslims’ principal loyalty won’t be to our country or laws. Flags and citizenship documents are merely flags of convenience to them.

    No wonder nothing is being done by the FBI about Islamic terrorism here with the friends the terrorists have in high places and without.

    I’m not shocked at how they ultimately handled this incident and despite Debbie’s posts running two days straight on this, I am not holding my breath waiting for the FBI to sit up and notice and do the right thing.

    NF: The FBI agent in New York in charge of hiring Arabic translators is an Egyptian Muslim, not the Special Agent in Charge of the NY FBI. Regardless, they all deserve the blame, as they were all in on it and did nothing to change the situation. DS

    NormanF on May 13, 2011 at 1:09 pm

      You’re right of course and when comes to the Jews, hostility to them seem to be incestuous there. And needless to say, its completely inexcusable.

      NormanF on May 13, 2011 at 1:38 pm

Thank Heaven… Blogger had an outage since Wednesday and none of the sites are updating. I guess its being fixed – not everything in the cloud is perfect – yet! 😉

NormanF on May 13, 2011 at 12:54 pm

The FBI appears to have failed to follow up on the concerns of an FBI mid to low level agent who noticed that there were Muslim-Arab men taking flying lessons, here with US Visas from Suadi Arabia, and a few from some other nations, but limiting the scope of their lessons to piloting an already flying aircraft, with no interest in learning how to safely take off and land.

The Police departments, State, Municipal, and Local, screen prospective officers with extensive background checks, then the selected cadets endure six months to one year or more of Police Academy training, as well as more extensive training after earning their badge. The officers spend time going through rookie training with experienced officers. The officers all must follow strict codes of conduct. When they pull over a suspect they are not to grope the suspect’s genitals, breasts, buttocks, anus, etc.

The TSA has little to no security background checks in comparison to police officer cadet tranees. They have hired numerous thugs with criminal backgrounds. The TSA gets away with groping and fondlining women’s genitals, their breasts, their buttocks, their anus, the thighs, the works, as well as groping and fondling male’s genitals, rear ends, and so forth. If you don’t like it you are threatened with arrest, if you want to leave the airport without being groped, electing to skip your flight rather than be sexually molested, you are detained and fined $10,000 or more, and possibly arrested as well, for refusing to be molested. so much for freedom and liberty.

If you are on an aircraft in which a Muslim Jihadi lights his underwear on fire, and a large, strong passenger tackles and over powers that hate filled, murderous, homicidal maniac member of THE Religion of Peace, Love, Tolerance, Mercy, Compassion, Understanding, and other nonsense, burning himself in the process of trying to stop the terrorist from destroying the aircraft and killing all the passengers and crew, and protecting the people below on the ground, you can expect to see Janet Napolitano, Home Land Security Secretary, or some other talking head, take credit, claiming that, “They System Worked,” and down playing the incident, insinuating that there is no terrorism involved.

If a Muslim or Muslims engage in perpetuating violence against US citizens, such as in the Seatle Jewish Community Center, the University of North Carolina student union student gathering area, Fort Hood, Texas, Maryland, Washington, DC., and Virginia in which Muslim snipers terrorized residents and travellers, killing innocent people, and othe incidents, the Homeland Security, FBI, and other organizations will rush to tell us all that there is not Muslim Jihad, or Terrorism involved.

This, and more, perpetrated by US President Barack Barry Soetoro Hussein Obam II, the clowns at the FBI, Homeland Security, and other alphabet soup agencies, clearly display their incompetency, dishonesty, and contempt for US citizens, and their bending over backward to accomodate, and placate, and kow tow to Muslims and Islam, THE Religion of Peace, Love, Tolerance, Mercy, Compassion, Understanding and all that jazz.

Remember, although Muslims are extremely intolerant, as are homosexual advocacy groups, it is the general populace who don’t agree, or speak out against, or are concerned about their intolerance, violence, and coersion who, we are told, are the bad guys.

Of course many US citizens no longer believer the FBI, Homeland Security, et al, and see them as liars and enablers, who extend preferential treatment and engage in spin doctoring and denial rather than protect the US citizens from these intolerant, mean-spirited, vicious cults.

On topic:

Kudos to New York’s Finest for a job well done. They actually deserve the sobriquet.

Unlike the Feds who could care less about Islamic terrorism within our borders.

A decade later, you’d think we’d have learned our lesson. Some people in high places still remain oblivious to the problem at hand.

Which is Jihad R Us coming soon nearest you.

“One of the suspects is a U.S. citizen and the other is a legal resident.”

Wafa Sultan, the Syrian-American writer of “A God Who Hates”, tells of her encounters with fellow Arabs in the US who, after becoming citizens, still disparaged their new country. “Didn’t you take an oath to be loyal to this country?”, she would ask. The common response was, “Yes, but I didn’t mean it.” (Sultan is now an ex-Muslim, becoming famous for confronting a prominent imam on Al Jazeera.)

Dark Horse candidate for President, Herman Cain, raised the hackles of the politically correct when he suggested he wouldn’t have Muslims in his Administration because he couldn’t assume they’d be loyal to the country and its Constitution. A gutsy call from a very smart man. He later walked that back only slightly, suggesting if they could *demonstrate* their loyalty, he might consider them.

Somehow I don’t think the loyalty standard used by today’s FBI and CIA for Muslim applicants match that I encountered when I was undergoing clearance for one of the intelligence agencies long ago. One of the agents asked one of my neighbors where my family still lived if I might be a … Zionist, more loyal to Israel than the US! One can only imagine the questions that are *not* asked of Muslim applicants.

No one expects them to give up their allegiance to Islam.

Cuz they have US citizenship or lived here a long time doesn’t mean they’re more moderate or tolerant than their co-religionists abroad.

If experience should have taught us anything, the exact opposite is true. Look at Nidal Malik Hasan.

NormanF on May 13, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Miss Schlussel, Et Alii:

I don’t know anything about Islamic terrorism in New York, or Detroit, or wherever, because, frankly, I’ve become so psychologically overwhelmed by the bodaciously massive inundating glut of information from all sources, that I can no longer read any lengthy text on the Internet.

Thus, when presented with an Internet post containing more than a few lines of text, I’m resigned to merely skimming rapidly over the page, briefly pausing to focus on a particular item of interest.

But, looking at the photographs, I’m not impressed with the size or composition of their arsenal.

That’s just normal everyday stuff carried by the average American male.

Yes, grenades are illegal, but so what?

They only have one.

If’n I had my ‘druthers, I ‘druther have a whole bunch of grenades, and anything else that will make loud noises, bright flashes, and do lots of damage to something.

I just LIKE things that go “BANG!” or “BOOM!”

Just like howling at the full moon, it’s FUN!!!

I reckon it’s a “guy” thing.

As I do a quick scan of this article, without any careful dissection of the details, the only real danger I see is the restrictive gun laws and the passive acquiescence of our contemporary emasculated and feminized society.

If EVERY responsible citizen in the United States of America (or anywhere else) would wear or carry their fully loaded firearm(s) every place they go, all of the time (yes, even on aircraft), then isolated outbreaks of violent crime, psychotic episodes, and military terrorist attacks could be immediately interrupted.

Do you notice that these things don’t happen in Switzerland or Israel, where everybody is armed, and their society is composed of responsible citizens who are educated and moral?

It’s all about freedom, and being your brother’s keeper.

That is FAR more effective than the anti-American and unconstitutional “U.S.A. P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act”, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Transportation Safety Administration.

Wait a second – – – one of those guys is homosexual?

Just like Islam, we must be intolerant of the inherent peril of a progressively homosexual society.

By the way, I disagree with the rest of the World.

As an unapologetic traditional White, Christian, native American male, I see nothing wrong with preserving, protecting, and perpetuating my heritage by being racist, sexist, homophobic (a misnomer), bigoted, or prejudiced.

Thank you.

    Since you only skim, I hope you don’t mind that readers do the same to your looooong “essays.”

    skzion on May 13, 2011 at 3:58 pm

This doesn’t surprise me. We have a President who is involved in actively weakening the US, as intentional policy. All the rest follows.

Occam's Tool on May 13, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Mamdouh’s lawyer, asserting Mamdouh’s innocence, appeared earlier today on one of the cable news channels. His name appeared at the bottom of the screen, and he’s almost certainly Jewish (Fusberg, or something similar). I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Ferhani’s lawyer is also a Jew. Time and again, American Jews are conspicuously prevalent as defense attorneys for Muslims and others who are genocidally anti-Jewish – why? Why? So many Jews (and I am one) seem to lack the basic instincts for self-preservation. Is it in their DNA?

Over and over, we hear of the thwarting of Muslim plots to bomb synagogues or otherwise kill Jews here in America; other such plots were not detected, or were the result of more or less spontaneous expressions of murderous Muslim anti-Jewish hatred, and deaths occurred. I maintain that for this country to allow Muslim immigration here to continue violates the government’s constitutional obligation to protect its citizenry. Muslims are a direct threat to American Jews, and imperil them. And while Jews are the primary non-Muslim group to find themselves in the crosshairs, everyone else will be targeted eventually. I wish that some bold attorney, or group of attorneys, would file a class action suit against the Federal Government, demanding a sea change in our immigration policy, and other actions which would protect groups targeted repeatedly by Muslims already here.

commonsense on May 13, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    As Debbie pointed out, Muslims have approached her for legal representation in the past.

    They may want Jews dead but are not above engaging Jews to stay out of jail.

    That doesn’t make them any less Islamic or less terrorist.

    A Jewish lawyer with one of them is as about as believable as a black lawyer defending an arch-segregationist.

    NormanF on May 13, 2011 at 7:33 pm

So, a devout Muslim can drink alcohol or wear Hassidic clothes to divert attention, but he can’t position himself as gay for the same purpose?

skzion on May 13, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    (I can’t imagine why some would think Debbie hates gay people.)

    skzion on May 13, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    There are gay Muslims – its an open secret in the Islamic World.

    I told you awhile back how Pakistani actress Verna Malik pointed out that Islamic clerics practice pederasty in their seminaries on boys.

    This is part of their culture and while they pretend to be devout, its always a con job.

    NormanF on May 13, 2011 at 7:38 pm

      Of course there are gay Muslims, NormanF. And, as they are Muslims, they are just as much Nazis as straight Muslims. I’m just suggesting that Debbie’s leap here is way beyond the evidence. I am well aware of the nasty leftism of gay political elites in general. That said, gay Muslims tend to keep a low profile, not because they love Jews, but because they fear brotherly Muslims.

      skzion on May 14, 2011 at 11:46 pm

Does anyone believe that this kind of crap would have gone under J. Edgar Hoover? Hell no! However, today, with butt-kissing toadies in ALL branches of our government, this kind of response is par for the course. I would like to ask the “Decision makers” on this travesty of national security, two questions: Tell me, if members of the “Religion of peace” broke into your home and slit the throats of your family, would your response be, “No big thing” and “Just aspirational?”
The second question is: Suppose some Christians, or Jews, or Buddhists, or whatever were caught with all this weaponry and were planning to blow up a mosque, would you refer to them as “Non operational terrorists,” buy them an ice cream cone and let them go?

I hope that Heinz Guderian was correct when he stated, “”The future will surely triumph over the perpetual yesterday.” If he was wrong, we are doomed.

Herbster on May 13, 2011 at 4:37 pm

All those weapons are legal except for the grenade.

Pineapple grenades haven’t been used in a long time. Whenever I see one, it’s either a fake or it has a zippo lighter built into it.

I’m not sure what this has to do with Debbie’s story, but the photo leaves me with some strange suspicion. I can’t quite put my finger on it.

There is NO Santa Claus on May 13, 2011 at 5:59 pm

Debbie I wouldn’t expect the FBI to protect Jewish institutions given thir open hostility to Jewish people. I’m surprised with all the Jews in congress none of them seem willing to get after this. Anyway please post some current Debbie pictures so that we can be sure you’re still hot. Also I’m at a public library computer and can’t log onto The Drudge Report. That proves he’s conservative I say.

A1 on May 14, 2011 at 1:26 pm

I always thought that just having a revolutionary plot(survile insurrection) against the USA was a crime. Add some weapons and it makes it more of a crime. Obama needs to be defeated next year.

Truth on May 15, 2011 at 10:57 am

He kicked a poodle! Scum.

Oh, btw, Mohammed hated dogs and that means that all Muslims must regard dogs as “unclean”. Scum.
