Hoping to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60)
In the Islamic state, the dhimmies, subjugated people, are not allowed to celebrate their holy days openly, are not allowed to ring church-bells or sing in loudly in their churches or synagogues, processions are forbidden and even funerals are attacked… most attacks take place on high holidays like Passover, Easter, Christmas Â and in India the bombs go off routinely in Hindu temples during celebrations…..
All this is part of Islamic law, the sharia. Bat Yeo’r has written extensively about the Â depredations of dhimmitude in the Islamic state.
“Second terror attack may have targeted city’s clubs, restaurants,” by Mike Levine for FoxNews/Newscore via theÂ New York Post, July 16 (thanks to JW):
The failed bombing attempt over Detroit on Christmas Day may not have been the only attack that extremists planned for the 2009 holiday, with intelligence from overseas indicating three weeks earlier that a plot targeting New York City on the same day may have been in the works, according to an FBI report obtained Friday by the Fox News Channel.”The final target of the attack was not known, but extremist members had allegedly discussed restaurants and night clubs located in New York City,” the FBI’s assistant legal attache in London wrote in a so-called threat report exactly three weeks before Christmas.
“The extremists allegedly discussed conducting the attack on Dec. 25, to coincide with the Christmas holiday.”
The Dec. 4 report, sent to U.S. and British counterterrorism officials, warned that “extremists allegedly planned to conduct a test run” that evening, hiding components for an improvised explosive device in a shipment of khat, a plant often chewed like tobacco that is a tradition for many in East Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.
“The extremists allegedly planned to smuggle unknown components of an unspecified explosive device onto a cargo flight departing … Nairobi, Kenya on Dec. 4 with a final destination of London, England,” said the report, which did not not identify the extremists or disclose the source of the information. “The group allegedly did not intend to detonate an explosive device on an aircraft.”
In England, a “Caucasian British Muslim … would [allegedly] facilitate the transfer of the components to [a] flight bound for NYC,” according to the report.
In New York, “the group was coordinating its efforts with a Somali man living [in the city],” said the report, which identified the possible U.S. suspect only as “Mohammed.” The report did not say whether “Mohammed” was a first name or a surname, noting that authorities had no further information about him….
Tirade Offers Insight on Would-Be Bomber
“I would not consider it a crime,” Mr. Shahzad replied.
Was he aware he had violated United States law? the judge asked.
Mr. Shahzad said he was aware, but added, “I don’t care for the laws of United States.”
It was a revelatory moment in a court case that abruptly ended on June 21, when Mr. Shahzad expounded for more than half an hour on how and why he had tried to detonate aÂ bomb in Times Square on a crowded Saturday evening.
Lawyers, prosecutors and others who have heard such statements, when the defendants are given an opportunity to explain their actions and motivations at length, say they can offer valuable insight into terrorists’ minds, particularly in a case as baffling as Mr. Shahzad’s.
The would-be bomber had cooperated for more than two weeks without counsel and “provided useful information,” Attorney GeneralÂ Eric H. Holder Jr. has said. But then Mr. Shahzad turned around and endorsed attacks on the United States, declaring he was a “Muslim soldier” who believed that killing children was justified in the war against America.
