New York jihadi Akayed Ullah who bombed the Port Authority was a devout Muslim.
Will Mayor de Blasio continue to protect mosques inciting to jihad? Will Mayor de Blasio stop dismantling counter terror programs that could save lives? Will we finally start investigating mosques tied to jihad terror attacks?
Mayor de Blasio dismantled a counter terror program that was investigating the Halloween jihadi’s mosque. There were 20 jihadis under investigation there. Jihad mass murderer Sayfullo Saipov meticulously plotted his Halloween attack on the West Side bike path for about a year, and made several trips into Manhattan to plot his course before he plowed into nearly two dozen people on the Lower West Side, killing eight. Perhaps if Mayor de Blasio had lost the election, those people would be alive. A misinformed pubic has terrible, horrible consequences.
NYC blast suspect Akayed Ullah aimed to avenge Muslim deaths, source says
By Tom Winter and Jonathan Dienst,Tracy Connor, NBC News, December 11, 2017:
The suspect in the New York City subway blast Monday told investigators he detonated a crude bomb after he spotted a holiday display and did in the name of ISIS to avenge the deaths of Muslims around the world, law enforcement officials said.
Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant, said he consumed terrorist propaganda and learned how to make the explosive device through online instructions, the officials said. He assembled it at his Brooklyn apartment they said.
There is no evidence Ullah, an electrician, had any direct contact with ISIS. But he said his anger over U.S. bombings in ISIS-controlled territory fueled his desire to carry out a suicide bombing, according to the officials.
He used Velcro and zip ties to attach the bomb — made from a pipe, a 9-volt battery, matches and Christmas tree lights — to his body, according to police. He found the pipe at a job site and bought the rest of the materials himself, he told investigators.
Mindful of ISIS threats timed to Christmas, he decided to set off the device in a crowded subway passageway near the Port Authority terminal because he noticed a holiday image there, the law enforcement officials said.
Ullah was taken to Bellevue Hospital with wounds and burns after the Monday morning blast, which was captured on security video and spread panic during the morning commute.
Hasan Alam, a former neighbor of Ullah, said he had not seen him since he moved about a year ago.
“I’m actually very shocked,” he said. “Because he was a religious person and very quiet, not very outgoing.”
Ullah came to the United States from Bangladesh with an immigrant visa on Feb. 21, 2011. He is a legal permanent resident with a green card.
A spokesman for the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission said he was a licensed cab driver from March 2012 to March 2015. More recently, he was working as an electrician.
Law enforcement officials said Ullah, who has traveled abroad numerous times since moving to the U.S., didn’t raise any red flags before Monday. He only had several traffic tickets on his record.
Soon after the explosion, police officers descended on at least three Brooklyn addresses connected to Ullah or his relatives — two in the Kensington section and one in Old Mill Basin.
A former neighbor in Mill Basin section in Brooklyn said the suspect lived there with an older couple and two other young men. She said she would see him leaving the house with what appeared to be camera equipment and assumed he was on his way to work.
