NY: Muslim pleads guilty to helping plot jihad at JFK airport

via Abdel Nur pleads guilty to helping plot explosion of fuel tanks at JFK airport.

A Guyanese national pleaded guilty Tuesday to participating in an international plot to blow up fuel lines and fuel tanks at Kennedy Airport.

Abdel Nur copped to providing material support to co-conspirators a day before he was scheduled to go on trial in Brooklyn Federal Court. Nur faces 15 years in prison under the plea deal approved by prosecutors in Brooklyn and the U.S. Justice Department. He could have gotten life in prison if convicted after a trial.

“I understood the goal of the planning of the destruction of fuel tanks and fuel by planes was to cause major economic loss in the United States,” Nur said in court.

Nur, 60, had been recruited to travel to Trinidad in late 2006 to seek financing for the evil plot from the leader of Jamaat al Muslimeen, a Muslim extremist group.

The plan, hatched by ex-airport cargo worker Russell Defreitas, targeted the Buckeye pipeline which feeds 8 million gallons of jet fuel and refined petroleum to the airport daily. Had the attack succeeded, the terrorist wannabes hoped the conflagration would eclipse 9/11, according to court papers.

Lawyers for Defreitas and co-defendant Abdul Kadir — a former member of the Guyanese parliament — insisted they are fighting the charges.

A fourth plotter, Kareem Ibrahim, has been severed from the case because he is too ill to stand trial.

Severed from the case? Not too ill to plan blowing up a major airport, but too ill for trial?

  1. I have to wonder if a lot of these Muslims aren’t willing to go to prison in the United States in order to recruit new converts and learn new ways to blow up things.

  2. I may be wrong, but isn’t this an act of treason and isn’t treason punishable by DEATH? Can anyone even imagine the extent of the loss of life and property had these sub-humans accomplished their goal?

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
