New York: Misunderstander of Islam arrested in bomb plot

That must be ‘Lone Wolf’ number 187456… or something.

 Bill Maher will pass. Chris Matthews will take no notice. And no other media outlet mentions his Muslim name because they don’t think it is important. He is an Islamic terrorist, but his Islamic faith is unconnected to that. Coincidental. That it likely forms his motivations and goals in this plot is not a possibility they are willing to consider.

“(Musel-) Man Arrested and Charged in Bomb Plot,” by Joseph Goldstein and William K. Rashbaum for the New York Times, November 20

Mayor of NYC  (Bloombugger) press conference on failed Islamic terror plot against New York

“Lone Wolf” motivated by Ron Paul: 

“Flawed” U.S. policies caused 9/11

Vid thanks to Vlad Tepes. There’s more:

Jose Pimpernel wanted to be known as “Osama Hussein”

Jihad bomb suspect spoke of changing his name to “Osama Hussein”

To whom did he speak about this? Didn’t anyone take him aside and explain to him that all true Muslims abhorred Osama bin Laden and everything he stood for — all, that is, except for a Tiny Minority of Extremistsâ„¢? More on this story: “‘Lone wolf U.S. citizen who wanted to change name to Osama Hussein’ foiled in pipe bomb terror plot to kill police officers and returning soldiers in New York City,” by Thomas Durante for the Daily Mail, November 21:

The New York Police Department has foiled an alleged terror plot targeting law enforcement and soldiers returning from the battlefield.

Jose Pimentel, 27, an Al-Qaeda sympathizer from Washington Heights, New York, was arrested yesterday at his apartment.

And what was he doing in his apartment?

He was within an hour of finishing a pipe bomb, just a couple of days after Muslims protested in front of the NYPD against surveillance of their communities. More on this story. “Terror suspect Jose Pimentel plotted to kill cops and soldiers with bombs he was building in Manhattan apartment, authorities say,” by Alison Gendar and Bill Hutchinson for the New York Daily News, November 20:

New York jihad bomb plotter wanted to show “there was mujahideen in the city ready to wage Jihad”

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

 Muhammad Yusuf’s hadith collection:

There is a wealth of information at New York jihad bomb plotter Muhammad Yusuf’s website, including several collections of ahadith about jihad. Here is one segment of that collection. It is noteworthy that none of the Islamic spokesmen in the U.S. will make any effort to show that these hadiths are false, or that Muhammad Yusuf is misunderstanding them. Yet it is on the assumption that Islam is a Religion of Peaceâ„¢ that the legitimacy of such spokesmen lies: the average non-Muslim takes for granted that Muhammad Yusuf is indeed a “lone wolf” who is twisting and hijacking the true, peaceful teachings of Islam. Yet the mainstream media never presses them to demonstrate this, and so they never bother.

If they did, and if they were sincere about what they claim to be (I am speaking of the likes of Rauf, al-Marayati, Aslan, Hooper, etc.), they would already have formulated a response to the understanding of Islam that people like Muhammad Yusuf hold, and would be making sure it was being taught in mosques in the U.S. The fact that they do not indicates that they are not sincere.

“Hadiths About Jihad From Saheeh Bukhari 1,” from Muhammad Yusuf’s True Islam website:

Hadiths About Jihad From Saheeh Bukhari -1 Book 4, Volume 52: Hadiths 41-100
Book 4, Volume 52: Hadith 41
Narrated Abdullah bin Mas’ud:
I asked Allah’s Apostle, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is the best deed?” He replied, “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.” I asked, “What is next in goodness?” He replied, “To be good and dutiful to your parents.” I further asked, what is next in goodness?” He replied, “To participate in Jihad in Allah’s Cause.” I did not ask Allah’s Apostle anymore and if I had asked him more, he would have told me more.

Book 4, Volume 52: Hadith 42
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
Allah’s Apostle said, “There is no Hijra (i.e. migration) (from Mecca to Medina) after the Conquest (of Mecca), but Jihad and good intention remain; and if you are called (by the Muslim ruler) for fighting, go forth immediately

Book 4, Volume 52: Hadith 43
Narrated ‘Aisha:
(That she said), “O Allah’s Apostle! We consider Jihad as the best deed. Should we not fight in Allah’s Cause?” He said, “The best Jihad (for women) is Hajj-Mabrur (i.e. Hajj which is done according to the Prophet’s tradition and is accepted by Allah).”

Book 4, Volume 52: Hadith 44
Narrated Abu Huraira:
A man came to Allah’s Apostle and said, “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” He replied, “I do not find such a deed.” Then he added, “Can you, while the Muslim fighter is in the battle-field, enter your mosque to perform prayers without cease and fast and never break your fast?” The man said, “But who can do that?” Abu- Huraira added, “The Mujahid (i.e. Muslim fighter) is rewarded even for the footsteps of his horse while it wanders bout (for grazing) tied in a long rope.”

Book 4, Volume 52: Hadith 45
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:
Somebody asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! Who is the best among the people?” Allah’s Apostle replied “A believer who strives his utmost in Allah’s Cause with his life and property.” They asked, “Who is next?” He replied, “A believer who stays in one of the mountain paths worshipping Allah and leaving the people secure from his mischief.”

Book 4, Volume 52: Hadith 46
Narrated Abu Huraira:
I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The example of a Mujahid in Allah’s Cause– and Allah knows better who really strives in His Cause—-is like a person who fasts and prays continuously. Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.”

  1. If he were Christian,would the media still claim he was a “Lone Wolf???”
    Uh uh, he would be one of mucho “Born Again Fanatics!!” Out to destroy America. Oh yah!

  2. How correct you are, Seamus!
    This would be all over the networks. They’d be working hard to get to the underlings like…was he a Tea Partier, or which fanatical Christian group did he belong to? 60 Minutes would be having a field day with it.
    MSNBC would be all over it like the dirty sock that it is.
    He would be called “The Scarlet Pimpernel” and would go down in infamy as another “Timothy McVeigh”, Christian, radical, right-wing terrorist.
