Merry Christmas From the Jihad Brothers! Planned to Bomb NYC Christians Using Christmas Tree Lights

By Debbie Schlussel

When will the feds stop calling Muslims who claim allegiance to Al-Qaeda and want to mass murder Americans, “lone wolves”? Probably never, but it’s like calling Barack Obama a conservative. Neither could be less accurate. And so it goes for the Jihad Bros. Raees Alam Qazi and his brother, Sheheryar Alam Qazi, planned to bomb various targets in New York City to take revenge on America for drone attacks on Islamic terrorists. They researched how to use Christmas tree lights (“allahu fubar, let’s kill the Christians!”) for attacks, and they looked into targets on Wall Street (“allahu fubar, let’s kill the evil Zionists!”). They also looked into attacks on Times Square and Broadway (“allahu fubar,” let’s kill the gays!”). Oh, and did I mention that at least one of them slept at a mosque in the course of his travels to New York for the Christmas Jihad?


The Jihad Bros: Sheheryar Alam Qazi (Left) & Raees Alam Qazi

One other thing of note, other than their religion–which ain’t mentioned in any of the mainstream media news stories: they were naturalized U.S. citizens who grew up here. Yet more evidence, a la Nidal Malik Hasan, of what we already know: that exposure to American culture doesn’t make ’em hate us any less. It just makes us a host for hungry and quickly metastasizing cancer.

A Pakistani-born man wanted to avenge the deaths of U.S. drone attacks in Afghanistan by blowing up a New York City landmark but lacked the money and materials to carry out the plan, a federal prosecutor said Tuesday.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Karen Gilbert said at a bail hearing that Raees Alam Qazi, 20, researched bomb-making techniques on Internet sites affiliated with al-Qaida, including one using Christmas tree lights, and the FBI recorded phone calls and conversations linking Qazi to a purported “lone wolf” plot.

“He fully intended to do this, and thankfully he didn’t have enough money,” Gilbert said. Referring to casualties in U.S. drone attacks, she added: “He wants to avenge those deaths and kill people.”

Qazi traveled to New York last month in hopes of getting a job to fund his terrorist plans, Gilbert said, but wound up sleeping in public transportation, a mosque and in restaurants, and riding a bicycle around the city looking for potential targets. He then decided to return home on a Greyhound bus and was arrested after arriving back in South Florida, she said.

Qazi, a naturalized U.S. citizen who attended local Florida public schools, confirmed many elements of the plot in a statement to FBI agents after his arrest in late November, Gilbert said. Investigators also found bomb-making and related components at the Qazi family home in Oakland Park, as well as explosives research evidence on a computer used by Qazi.

Qazi is charged along with his brother, 30-year-old taxi driver Sheheryar Alam Qazi, with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in the U.S. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges, which carry a potential life sentence if the men are convicted of both counts. . . .

Gilbert said Raees Qazi was the intended operative, using either a suicide attack or a remote-control device to kill people in a crowded place such as New York’s Times Square, a Broadway theater or perhaps on Wall Street. The elder Qazi supported his brother financially and logistically with the knowledge that Raees was planning a terror attack, the prosecutor said.

In one conversation recorded by the FBI, Sheheryar Qazi compared his brother to a “lone wolf, like the Times Square bomber.” Gilbert said Sheheryar Qazi was referring to Faisal Shahzad, who unsuccessfully attempted to detonate a bomb at the New York landmark in May 2010. In another recorded conversation, Sheheryar Qazi says that his brother “wasn’t going to be in this world long.”

If only we executed people like this, then they wouldn’t be long for this world and their terrorist plots would be fewer because they’d actually fear us like they fear Islamic governments. In this case, we can only hope it won’t be long before they have new boyfriends.

Sadly, there are plenty more where these two came from: U.S. soil and the ever-growing naturalized citizen pool of America-haters.

Oh, and hey, now that we’ve had a Prez for four years who pronounces Pakistan sort of the way they pronounce it, why haven’t people from that country stopped plotting our destruction? I mean, after all, doesn’t pretentious pronunciation end all threats facing America?

Exit question: if the Jihad Bros had succeeded in this plot would we have liberals and spineless Republicans calling for a ban on assault Christmas tree lights?

Thanks to reader Matthew Scholnick for the tip.

Why do we still accept migrants from Pakistan? It is an act of insanity to do so.

That one fucker’s eyes look off center. Kind of like the Mad Magazine guy.

This is one guy we shouldn’t have in this country at ALL.

All immigration should stop immediately. And, not re-start until these matters are permanently resolved.

As goes, so goes... on December 18, 2012 at 6:40 pm

If you all haven’t seen it by now Donya Berry (the racist Mooooslima) just blew her cover on the thread where she was exposed by her racist tweet.

It’s hysterical. She forgot to switch her *dummy* handle of “Sara” back and posted as Donya under “Sara”.

She then took her explosives and ran.

It’s a classic for the archives. What a marooooon! LMAO!

    Skunky, she would make a perfect bunkmate for Big “D”.

Islam is a disease and is spreading like a epidemic and needs stopping if not it will kill you! be warned!

Well done. It’s a shame such evil is allowed access to our country. So bad.

I think there may be an ulterior motive why the FBI keeps using the words “lone wolf” to describe these guys. Maybe if it was another Al-Qaeda attack they can use it to down play if Al -Qaeda does claim responsibility. It might look that the FBi is not able to stop these guys. Who knows? I just really thinking about this describing these many “lone wolves” that seems to be appearing everyfew months.

Donya/”Sara”, I bet you could get the leading role in a remake of the movie “Sybil” since HOLLYWOOD loves kowtowing to MONSTERS like you!

There could be a few reasons why the govt. likes the term “lone wolf” now. One reason is they can blame things on one or two people and not involve their support systems. (Mosques, safe houses, etc.) Another reason, is, when you start labeling people as lone wolves, you can come up with an excuse for destroying them for things you think they “might” do. And, the government machine isn’t that smart or original in their thinking. I noticed they started using the term shortly after Tom Metzger started using it.

….only a matter of time.

Stop immigration from Islamic countries, burn down all their mosques and then deport every single one of them that complains. The only good muslim is an apostate(ex-muslim) or a dead one.
Islam has declared war on the western world, wake up and fight back before it is too late.

with another 4 years of obama we will see a lot more of this

My dear Jewish sister,

There are three remarks I want to make on this issue;

1 – Islam is a religion and a state.So the Moslem is really according to his own thinking a Moslem national before any thing else. Now when he became an American did he renounce is Moslem Nationality as the law demands?????? Why does the state insist on being blind on this fact?????

2 – Islam is in a state of jealousy and envy of all successful people who belong to other than Islam. Show me one example where Islam was progressive or successful????? I mean in any field other than murder and sabotage.

3 – Islam is not a religion even though the cult was modeled after a religion. That is why they are always envious of other religions.

Finally why do the government always shy from calling a spade a spade??????

When I first saw this article in the liberal Huffington Post,they obviously refused to reveal that those guys were Muslim. I was upset after reading this since I live in Long Island and often visit Manhattan. My family likes to go see the big Christmas tree sometimes even though we’re Jewish. We like to see Broadway shows too. I know alot of people who live in Manhattan. So I am very grateful that the prosecutors were able to stop them. I gotta say that your analogies such as Wall Street:Jews, Christmas Tree:Christians, and Broadway:Gays added humor to the article.

I think we should retaliate by shoving nitro-filled falafel balls down their throats (or up their a**es!)

Don’t look for the flood of these pukes to end any time soon. Obama has opened the door and the emasculated dweebs of ICE, CBP, and CIS wil do nothing to curtail it because they are more consumed with their political fellatio and agendas than enforcing the law.

Arm yourselves people because this is what it’s coming down to…..

Islam. It’s what Muslims do.
