From another anniversary celebration by the Islamists....

After the President went out of his way to make sure that no one got the impression that the jihad against the United States had anything to do with Islam, it is rather surprising that two Muslims have been arrested in connection with Najibullah Zazi's plot to blow up various high-profile targets around New York city on the eighth anniversary of 9/11. I would have believed Christian extremists, white supremacists, Belgian neo-fascists -- sure. But Muslim? Involved in terrorism? It's unheard of!

Meanwhile, the President has stated that our conflict is with al-Qaeda. He never mentions anyone else, so it must be with al-Qaeda only. Are these guys with al-Qaeda? If not, why are we bothering these men of peace?

"FBI arrests two in New York, Adis Medunjanin, Zarein Ahmedzay, in Zazi bomb-plot terror probe," by Alison Gendar, James Gordon Meek, Rocco Parascandola and Brian Kates for the New York Daily News, January 8 (thanks to D. C. Watson):

Two men busted in an ongoing terror probe will be arraigned Friday in connection with a bomb plot targeting New York City.

The suspects, Adis Medunjanin and Zarein Ahmedzay, were part of an ongoing FBI task force investigation, Special Agent Richard Kolko said.

FBI agents Thursday night raided the Queens apartment of Medunjanin, who was said to have close ties to Najibullah Zazi, a Colorado airport driver the feds say is the mastermind of an Al Qaeda plot to blow up New York, law enforcement sources said.

Zazi has pleaded not guilty to charges of getting Al Qaeda training to build homemade bombs to attack city targets.

Medunjanin's attorney, Robert Gottlieb, said the FBI seized his client's passport on Thursday. Gottlieb said the search warrant indicated the passport was sought as part of an investigation into a conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction.

There were no immediate details on the charges against the two men, according to Robert Nardoza, a spokesman for the Brooklyn U.S. attorney.

Medunjanin was being questioned by counterterrorism agents who were trying to get him to cough up information about Zazi and the Al Qaeda cell - the first uncovered in the U.S. after 9/11.

Zazi, 24, an Afghan national was nabbed after sweeping raids on Queens apartment buildings in September. The raids turned up evidence of bomb-making materials, and Zazi was charged with conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction.

Medunjanin, 25, who is believed to have accompanied Zazi to an Al Qaeda training camp in Pakistan in 2008, fled in his car Thursday when he came home and saw agents swarming over his apartment, sources said.

He made it as far as Whitestone, Queens, where he crashed on the Whitestone Expressway about 4 p.m....

The bitter fruit of Islamophobia!
