Two NYC women from Queens will be arraigned in a Brooklyn federal court this afternoon for planning to use WMDs to create mass destruction and death. They are in their 20s and 30s. They planned jihad on behalf of Al Qaeda. They also have interest in ISIS.
The timing is during the Easter and Passover celebrations.
These women were apparently planning this for a long time and had researched using the same pressure cooker bomb used by the Boston bombers.
The NY Times reports:
The roommates, Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, both United States citizens, were named in a complaint unsealed on Thursday in Federal District Court in Brooklyn.
Ms. Siddiqui “is currently in possession of multiple propane gas tanks, as well as instructions for how to transform propane tanks into explosive devices,” the complaint reads.
The women appeared to be interested in jihad and had been communicating with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula personnel. They also watched videos of ISIS beheadings, according to the complaint.
These women have ties to Yemen.
This is becoming more common and it will get worse.
Pamela Geller has the story two Muslim brothers who plead guilty last month in a Miami federal court for a plant to bomb NYC with a WMD.
This will happen more and more in the new face of the war on terror. If we were fighting them seriously on their home turf and if we were surveilling radicalized Mosques, this type of radicalization would be far more difficult.
The number of fighters joining ISIS is skyrocketing. There is little resistance from the United States.
Apparently, according to President Rouhani of Iran, a nuclear deal has been reached with Iran. Any details that have leaked so far show a deal that will facilitate Iran’s path to the bomb. They are no less dangerous than ISIS, probably far more dangerous. The U.S. has decided to be helpless in the war on terror which they refuse to recognize as such.
Iran is demanding we help in stopping the bombing of Yemen.
We will update as information comes in.
