Four homegrown converts to Islam arrested for plotting synagogue bombing

UPDATE: Pastorius cutting in here.

Gateway Pundit has the title of the day on this story:

Yes, they were all homegrown, and converted in prison (Hat tip: Weekly Standard blog):
The FBI busted a homegrown terror cell late Wednesday night as the men sneaked around a Jewish temple in Riverdale planting what they thought was packages of C-4 explosives, sources told the Daily News.

The four African American men, three of whom were said to be jailhouse converts to Islam, also allegedly had what they believed was a working Stinger missile in their car.

Officials said they hoped to shoot down a plane at Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh in Orange County.

Sources said the four men were arrested after a year-long investigation that began when an informant connected to a mosque in Newburgh said he knew men who wanted to buy explosives.

FBI agents posing as militants sold them what they thought was 30 pounds of C-4 and a plane-downing Stinger missile.

The weaponry was all phony.
But, the intentions of the Islamic converts were real.
Arrested was alleged ringleader James Cromitie of Newburgh, the son of an Afghan immigrant and his African American wife.

Cromitie served a long stretch in prison in the past.

Alleged henchment David Williams, Onta Williams and Leguerre Payen were busted with him.

Sources said the three were jailhouse converts to Islam.

"This shows the real risks we face from homegrown terror and jailhouse converts, and the need for constant vigilance," said Rep. Pete King (R-NY).
As I thought, allowing jailhouse practice of the RoP is dangerous and should be banned. For now, they should interrogate the men to know just who their converter was and what he had to say in that scary world behind bars.

You Yanks are catching up with us Brits on the road to becoming an Islamic failed state. With Obama(pbuh) in charge you may even overtake us.

Thanks for noting our progress. We've been working diligently at it. We certainly don't want to fall behind you guys.


And yes, Obama may be just the right guy to lead us ...

May be? Who am I kidding? He is the man to lead us in that direction.

I don't think either Party has a good record with regard to the Islamic threat. After all, when and where did these guys join the jihad? I doubt, during the Cold War, that we'd let the Communist Party to establish an official recruiting post in jail. Islam is a political ideology first and foremost. Let's treat it as such.

By the way, the jihadists said they planned on killing Jews because of our policy in Afghanistan. I haven’t seen any commentary in the MSM even hinting at the absurdity of this vicious ‘logic.’ Upset about Obama’s ‘surge’ in Afghanistan … kill Jews. Upset about India's politics … kill Jews.

Good point, Jason. I hadn't thought of that.
