Another American jihadist foiled but it's got nothing to do with Islam

Most news stories and media articles on jihad attacks never make the connection between the action and the doctrine driving the attack. There will always be some excuse or rational explaining the reasons behind the behavior, almost never will you hear a hint of responsibility leaning towards Islamic theology and tenets. It is the height of Islamophobia to mention that there is a possibility that the life of Muhammad could have anything to do with why Muslims shout Allahu Akbar as they push the detonator button on the homicide vest. Muslims themselves can talk about this all day, similar to Blacks using the word nigger among themselves but God forbid anyone else even dares to utter it, that would be racist or anti-Muslim.

Whatever it takes to stop Islam from murdering innocents is fine with me.

Terror suspect Jose Pimentel plotted to kill cops and soldiers with bombs he was building in Manhattan apartment, authorities say

A lone wolf with an anti-American grudge was charged Sunday with plotting to kill cops and soldiers with bombs he was building in his Manhattan apartment from an Al Qaeda recipe, officials said.

Jose Pimentel was within an hour of finishing a powerful pipe bomb when the NYPD busted him as he worked at a Harlem apartment of a police informant at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Pimentel, 27, of Manhattanville, planned to test three bombs on mailboxes and was plotting to eventually use explosives on soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.

Kelly said Pimentel, an American citizen born in the Dominican Republic, also planned to bomb NYPD cruisers, a police station in Bayonne, N.J., and postal facilities.

Pimentel, who went by the alias Muhammad Yusuf, told an informant posing as an Al Qaeda sympathizer he would show “there was mujahedeen in the city ready to fight jihad here.”

“The suspect was a so-called lone wolf, motivated by his own resentment of the presence of American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as inspired by Al Qaeda propaganda,” Mayor Bloomberg said at a press conference Sunday night, adding Pimentel apparently had no links to an organized Al Qaeda cell.

Except in the truest and deepest sense; following the Qur'an and Muhammad as closely as possible in order to be a good Muslim.

Kelly said NYPD intelligence officers had been monitoring the suspect since May 2009, when he lived in Schenectady and mouthed off about wanting to go to Yemen and train to “become a martyr in the name of jihad.”

Pimentel openly pledged support for Al Qaeda on his own website,

But you would be an Islamophobe to suggest his actions have anything to do with the peaceful teachings of Muhammad and the Qur'an.
