NJ:5 Muslims Guilty in Fort Dix Plot

Some people continually say that American Muslims are different from Muslims everywhere else, but their actions show us that is just not true. Here is just one more example, as five Muslims were found guilty of planning to kill US soldiers at a US military base in New Jersey.

Five guilty in plot to attack US army base

WASHINGTON (AFP) — Five suspected Islamic radicals were found guilty Monday of plotting to kill soldiers at a US army base at Fort Dix, New Jersey, charges that could bring life imprisonment, court officials said.

The men, who were arrested in 2007, were found guilty of conspiracy to kill military personnel. However, they were found not guilty of attempting to kill US soldiers and employees of the United States, a court official told AFP.

Six suspects were arrested initially, four of whom were from the former Yugoslavia, one from Jordan and the other from Turkey. One of the men pleaded guilty to a reduced weapons charge while the rest were convicted in the Camden, New Jersey court on Monday.

The suspects, including a pizza delivery man who allegedly used his job to case the army base, were arrested on May 7, 2007 as they tried to buy automatic rifles.
During a 16-month sting operation, two undercover FBI informers infiltrated the group and recorded their conversations about launching an attack on Fort Dix army base, federal prosecutors said.

The plot was foiled after a shop clerk alerted police to a "disturbing" video that the suspects had made of themselves and asked to be burned to a DVD.

Prosecutors said the footage showed the accused firing guns in militia-style, calling for holy war and shouting "Allahu Akbar," Arabic for "God is greatest."

One of the suspects, Mohamad Shnewer, a Philadelphia taxi driver, allegedly told an informant that six or seven "jihadists" planned the operation on Fort Dix to kill "at least one hundred soldiers" by using rocket-propelled grenades or other weapons, the New Jersey US attorney's office said.

"My intent is to hit a heavy concentration of soldiers," Shnewer was quoted as saying in the charge sheet. "You hit four, five or six humvees and light the whole place (up) and retreat completely without any losses."

So, this group of terrorists didn't manage to weasel out of the charges.

Of course, I don't expect any front-page coverage of this story in the mainstream media. I'll be checking tomorrow's front page of the WaPo -- just to see.

What's most interesting is that few have noted how stupid these 5 guys were...they were so cognizant of their perceived impending martyrdom they filmed themselves...then asked a drug store clerk for the film to be burned to DVD. Any self-respecting idiot knows you can go to Circuit City (oops, they're dead...I mean Best Buy) and get the technology to do to it themselves for far less than the cost of a guilty verdict. Or maybe they could have spent the $300 to purchase a video recorder that burned the DVD as they prattled on?

Yet again, another story of Allah's best and brightest.
