Jihad terror is not a law enforcement issue. It’s an act of war. Ahmad Khan Rahimi deserves death; instead, he gets a lifetime of jihad recruitment, halal meals and dawah.
Bomber from N.J. handed multiple life sentences for NYC, Seaside Heights bombings
NJ.com, February 13, 2018:
A man who set of bombs in two states, including a pressure cooker device that blasted shrapnel across a New York City block, was sentenced Tuesday to multiple terms of life in prison.
Ahmad Khan Rahimi, who was born in Afghanistan but lived in New Jersey, injured 30 people when one of his pressure cooker bombs exploded in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood on a September night in 2016. A second bomb planted nearby did not detonate.
That blast happened just hours after a small pipe bomb exploded along a Marine Corps road race in Seaside Heights frightening participants but injuring no one.
Ahmad Khan Rahimi is charged with planting bombs in Seaside Park, New York City and Elizabeth last fall
The bombings triggered a two-day manhunt that ended in a shootout with police in Linden. Rahimi was shot several times but survived.
Federal prosecutors said in presentence papers that Rahimi has not shown remorse and has tried to radicalize fellow prisoners at the federal jail in New York where he has been imprisoned since his arrest.
“He is proud of what he did, scornful of the American justice system, and as dedicated as ever to his terrorist ideology,” they wrote.
Rahimi, prosecutors said, gave inmates copies of terrorist propaganda and jihadist materials, including speeches and lectures by al-Qaida founder Osama bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born cleric who inspired attacks on America and was killed in a U.S. airstrike in September 2011.
Rahimi also allowed some inmates to view materials on his laptop or provided electronic copies as he spread “The Book of Jihad,” bomb-making instructions and various issues of a propaganda magazine.
Defense attorney Xavier Donaldson said that before the attacks, Rahimi, a naturalized U.S. citizen, aspired to be a police officer and worked as a security guard after studying criminal justice at a community college.
“It was Mr. Rahimi’s belief that he could help people while employed in a position that would guarantee him some type of pension,” Donaldson wrote.
While imprisoned, Rahimi has completed classes in business, entrepreneurship and drama, Donaldson wrote.
Major intel failure. We see now the consequences of eight years of Obama and the leftwing war on our counter-terror apparatus. Ahmad Khan Rahami, a devout Muslim, violent and vicious, should have been profiled, but wasn’t. President Obama made the same pilgrimage to Pakistan in 1981 — under martial law at that time. Little is…
Ahmad Rahimi said he was “a soldier in a holy war against Americans,” and New York and New Jersey were his battleground.
Ahmad Rahimi sowed terror across two states, setting off bombs in Manhattan and on the Jersey Shore and touching off a furious manhunt. This devout Muslim deserves a death sentence but he knows Western liberals grovel before the Islamic world, awarding it special status to oppress, subjugate and slaughter in the cause of Allah.
Only a Muslim supremacist would set off a series of bombs in densely populated cities like New York and New Jersey in the cause of Allah and then want attempted murder charges dropped. That’s how low and little Islamic supremacists think of the kufar.
Federal prosecutors say the man who was convicted of setting off a bomb in Manhattan that injured 30 people last year has been attempting to radicalize fellow jail inmates.
Prosecutors will try to show how jihadist ideology motivated Rahimi to set off bombs in Manhattan and New Jersey before he was wounded by police at the end of a furious manhunt.
Lawyers for a terrorist bombing suspect are trying to argue — get this — their client’s not a terrorist. What a novel approach.

Jihadis know how to work our system and they know the party of treason will help them at every turn. As for Rahimi, “he was arrested in 2014 on weapons and aggravated assault charges for allegedly stabbing someone in the leg in a domestic incident, according to court documents. He spent over three months in…
Endless claims of victimhood. Next we will hear this is why he went jihad — because his chicken restaurant had to close at 10. “EXCLUSIVE: Wanted New York and New Jersey bomb suspect sued his local police claiming they PERSECUTED him for being a Muslim,” by Daniel Bates and Louise Boyle, Dailymail.com, September 19, 2016:…
