Imam guilty in JFK terror plot, US Attorney says misunderstander of Islam

Death by a thousand paper cuts. The dhimmitude is unbearable. Is there any doubt that Eric Holder, at the behest of Barack Obama, has instructed all DOJ employees to aggressively defend Islam every chance they get? From op-eds, to mosque outings, and youth outreach. Now going so far as to defend Islam and the Muslim community while announcing arrests and guilty verdicts of Muslims who plot to kill Americans.

Another imam caught and convicted. How many will it take before some preemptive action is taken? via FBI — Imam from Trinidad Convicted of Conspiracy to Launch Terrorist Attack at JFK Airport.


BROOKLYN, NY—Following a four-week jury trial, Kareem Ibrahim was convicted today in the Eastern District of New York of conspiring to attack John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, New York, by exploding fuel tanks and the fuel pipeline under the airport. The defendant believed the attack would cause extensive damage to the airport and to the United States economy, as well as the loss of innocent lives. The defendant faces a sentence of up to life in prison. Sentencing has been scheduled for October 21, 2011.

The convictions were announced by Loretta E. Lynch, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and Janice K. Fedarcyk, Assistant Director in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, New York Field Office. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Force in New York.

The evidence at trial established that Kareem Ibrahim, an Imam and leader of the Shiite Muslim community in Trinidad and Tobago, provided religious instruction and operational support to a group plotting to commit a terrorist attack at JFK Airport. The plot originated with Russell Defreitas, a naturalized United States citizen from Guyana, who drew on his prior experience working at JFK Airport as a cargo handler to plan the attack on its fuel tanks and fuel pipeline. Beginning in 2006, Defreitas recruited others to join the plot, including the defendant Kareem Ibrahim, Abdel Nur and Abdul Kadir, a former member of parliament in Guyana.

In May 2007, Defreitas presented defendant Kareem Ibrahim with video surveillance and satellite imagery of the targets for terrorist attack because Ibrahim had connections with militant leaders in Iran. During cross-examination at trial, Ibrahim admitted that he advised the plotters to present the plot to revolutionary leaders in Iran and to use operatives ready to engage in suicide attacks at the airport. On one of the recorded conversations entered into evidence, Ibrahim told Defreitas that the attackers must be ready to “fight it out, kill who you could kill and go back to Allah.”

According to the trial evidence, the conspirators also attempted to enlist support for the plot from prominent international terrorist groups and leaders, including Adnan El Shukrijumah, an al Qaeda leader and explosives expert, and Yasin Abu Bakr, leader of the Trinidadian militant group Jamaat Al Muslimeen. Ultimately, the plotters followed Ibrahim’s direction and sent Abdul Kadir to meet with his contacts in the Iranian revolutionary leadership, including Mohsen Rabbani, the former cultural attache indicted for his leading role in the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish cultural center in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Kareem Ibrahim, Nur and Kadir were arrested in Trinidad in June 2007, with Kadir aboard a plane headed to Venezuela, en route to Iran. All three were subsequently extradited to the United States. Defreitas was arrested in New York. After a trial in 2010, Russell Defreitas and Abdul Kadir were found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. Nur pleaded guilty before trial to supporting the plot and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

The specific charges Ibrahim was convicted of are: conspiracy to attack a public transportation system, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2332f; conspiracy to destroy a building by fire or explosive, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 844(n); conspiracy to attack aircraft and aircraft materials, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 32; conspiracy to destroy international airport facilities, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 37; and conspiracy to attack a mass transportation facility, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1992(a)(10).

“In pursuit of a radical terrorist agenda, bent on the destruction of John F. Kennedy Airport and the murder of innocent civilians, Imam Kareem Ibrahim abandoned the true tenets of his religion,” stated United States Attorney Lynch. “We will continue to seek out and bring to justice all those who plot to attack the United States and its people.” Ms. Lynch extended her grateful appreciation to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force in New York for its role in investigating and assisting in the prosecution of the case, as well as to the Guyanese and Trinidadian law enforcement authorities who assisted with the investigation and apprehension of the defendants.

Ibrahim and his co-conspirators had elaborate plans to attack John F. Kennedy International Airport, not only to cause carnage, but also to damage the economy,” said FBI Assistant Director in Charge Fedarcyk. “Today’s guilty verdict is not only a victory for the American justice system, it is also a rejection of the extremist ideology he supported.”

  1. how many millions of dollars does it take to prosecute these people put in our jails. They know that if they get captured they go to jail, free meal ticket. What should happen is if you are found guilty of planning or doing acts of terror you should be executed. That might stop a lot of this.

    • Mush cheeper to execute than to let live in prison, besides that they can not recruit more people when they are dead.

      • Our government won’t execute them, in fact when they are released they become smarter criminals. They, like most prisoners released, will have received their PhD in criminal behavior. Statistics have shown that Incarceration does not equal rehabilitation. What is the answer then? Ideally execution is best. But facts are facts and these animals will get out of prison eventually. Maybe a tattoo on the released prisoners forehead ( felons only) with a code number so all who see it know what this person has done would help.

  2. More evidence. There is no “radical” Islam – Islam is Islam.

You speak of human rights while you beat your Women into submission and you commit honor killings!!!!!!!!! You and your kind are a joke. You do not know what human rights is. islam is more aligned with SATAN. You claim islam is a religion of peace, that’s one hell of a lie.

  6. Islam cowards need to crawl under the rocks like the worms they,IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT HEREDON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU ON THE BACK SIDE go home go home we don’t want you here.The only persons you spineless worms can fight in a real fight is your women. You aren’t worth a pimple on my back side.I wipe with the quran

  7. Loretta, with all due respect – are you a fucking moron or just ignorant of the true tenets of Islam? Al-wala’ w’al-bara – or why the local US Atty’s office is filled with people who are ego tripping instead of pursuing justice. Your office really sucks. NY DA’s office runs rings around you.

  8. All I read in every anti radical muslim website are the incidents and problems that stem from a growing muslim foothold in western and non-western countries. Very rarely do I read about solutions to the list of atrocities perpetrated on non- muslims. When someone does present a non politically correct solution he or she is shouted down as being a racist. It seems every western nation wants to combat a 7th century barbaric ideology with 21st century laws based on civilized behavior? We are at war period! War produces a violent antagonistic relationship between the waring parties! Here are three basic things to remember about your waring enemy. 1. They will Lie! 2. There is no honor between them and you! 3.They will not fight fair! Lose sight of those three things and you are doomed.
