The Fed Reserve Bomb Plotter: Explaining Jihadist ‘Nice Guys’

Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. His latest book, Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We're In, is now available.


“He is very gentle and devoted to his studies,” says the father of Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, who was arrested after trying to detonate what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb at the New York City Federal Reserve Bank. And it could be true: he could be a gentle, studious soul. His studies of Islam could have led him to the conviction that he needed to wage jihad against Infidels.

Nafis explained his action in clear Islamic terms. He told undercover agents, whom he thought were his fellow plotters: “I don’t want something that’s like, small. I just want something big. Something very big … that will shake the whole country, that will make America, not one step ahead, change of policy, and make one step ahead, for the Muslims … that will make us one step closer to run the whole world.” Islamic rule of the world is indeed a traditional Islamic imperative, delineated in Islamic law.

Nafis is an exchange student from Bangladesh who came to the U.S., authorities said, solely to wage jihad against Americans – and, as he put it, thereby to “destroy America.” Nonetheless, because his motivation is grounded in his piety, he could be as decent a fellow as his father says he is. There are abundant precedents: according to former Detroit Public Schools Superintendent Eddie Green, Kifah Jayyousi was “a great guy, one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.” While Green was superintendent, Jayyousi oversaw the Detroit school district’s capital improvement program. Later, Jayyousi was charged, according to the Detroit Free Press, with “conspiring to kidnap, maim and murder by providing money, recruits and equipment for Islamic struggles in Bosnia, Kosovo and Chechnya from 1993 to 2001.”

Christopher Paul, a martial arts instructor at a mosque in Columbus, Ohio, was also a terrific guy. Ahmad Al-Akhras, vice chairman of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations chapter in Columbus, said: “From the things I know, he is a loving husband and he has a wife and parents in town. They are a good family together.”

Yet Paul, a Muslim, was charged, according to Associated Press, with “providing material support to terrorists, conspiracy to provide support to terrorists and conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction.” He was accused of training with Al-Qaeda in the early 1990s, training people for violent jihad attacks on targets in Europe and the United States, and more.

According to a Southern California friend of Raed Albanna, who killed 132 people in a suicide attack outside a medical clinic in Iraq in 2005, “He was into partying. We hit some pretty wild clubs in Hollywood.” Frank Lindh, the father of John Walker Lindh, a.k.a. Suleyman Al-Faris, the convert to Islam from Marin County who joined the Taliban and was captured in Afghanistan fighting against American troops, has said: “In simple terms, this is the story of a decent and honorable young man embarked on a spiritual quest.”

Great guys all. Some partied and some embarked on a spiritual search, but they all ended up in the same place, committing acts dedicated to furthering the cause of jihad, or facing charges of having done so.

But they may be genuinely decent fellows. It was the Nazi genocide mastermind Heinrich Himmler who told a group of SS leaders: “Most of you know what it means to see a hundred corpses lying together, five hundred, or a thousand. To have gone through this and yet — apart from a few exceptions, examples of human weakness — to have remained decent fellows, this is what has made us hard…”

Were these SS mass murderers really decent fellows? To their friends and family, they probably were. After all, they weren’t interested in undifferentiated mayhem. They were adherents of a totalitarian, genocidal ideology that convinced them that the murders they were committing were for a good purpose. As far as they were concerned, their goals were rational. It was a necessity for them to remain “decent fellows,”  for they were busy trying to build what they saw as a decent society. That their vision of a decent society included genocide and torture did not trouble them, for it was all for — in their view — a goal that remained good.

Today’s jihad terrorists are likewise the adherents of a totalitarian, genocidal ideology that teaches them that murders committed under certain circumstances are a good thing. And those murders, here again, are not committed for their own sake, but for the sake of a societal vision hardly less draconian and evil than that of Adolf Hitler, but one also that portrays itself as the exponent of all that is good — as the Taliban showed us. But the continued reference to such people as “terrorists” pure and simple, and the refusal of the media and most law enforcement officials to examine their ideology at all, only reinforces the idea that these people are raving maniacs, interested solely in chaos for its own sake. The society they want to build, and the means besides guns and bombs that they are using to build it, is a forbidden topic for government analysts. People like Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis are just “terrorists,” interested only in “terror.” And so we’re continually surprised when they turn out to be nice guys after all. Decent fellows. Like the SS.

      There is some problem that I do not know the specifics about, but it is for some reason against the rules of Frontpage Magazine to challenge Mr. Spencer's points politely with illustrations that his accusations against Islam are not unique to Islam.

        Schlomind, accusations against Islam are important because they relate to the here, and the now, in our own backyard. Similar "accusations" against other religions date from centuries ago, and most of those in turn relate to efforts back then to combat Islam. Yes, Islam is a pile of dung assuring us it's a bed of roses. EVERY Moslem holy site in India used to be a Hindu holy site. Yes it did.

      there is really no point in punishing nafis for his crime. if we would march him out behind the courthouse and put a bullet in his head, justice would be served, but we all know that instead he will be kept at great espense in prison where he, who will not be allowed free, will be able to infect other gullibles with islam, and they will someday be free to carry out the dictates of allah. if we had people in high places who were capable of serving the cause of justice, they would release nafis, and try, condemn, and execute the traitors responsible for letting nafis in our country. that would do us immeasurable good. imprisoning nafis will do us evil. lets punish the real criminals, for a change. we cannot really blame nafis for being what he is, can we? we may kill rabid skunks, but we really dont blame them for being rabid skunks, any more than we should blame muslims for being the monsters that we dam well know they are. the real criminals are the ones who, knowing what he is, allowed him to enter our country.

  • Ranjit

    Pakistan is the biggest sponsor of terror and nuclear proliferator in the world and Bangladesh is a cesspit of Islamists whose only limiting factor in spreading jihad around the globe is their paucity of pocket but not of will – factors eliminated in Pakistan because of large and unconditional US largesse and blatant collusion.

    Now think about this for a moment, despite being thousands of miles away, if these countries (and its people) can play such havoc on US (and the West), imagine the hate it wreaks almost on daily basis on Hindus who happen to live amongst them and onto those just across their borders. Imagine Canada and Mexico, full of deadly rampant jihadis, murderers and terrorists vying for US blood and some other country, let us say China, filling up their coffers to the brim, giving them free military hardware, logistical training and moral support and you begin to get the picture. You know who is playing the part of India and the US in the above scenario, right?

    For Muslims the two most hated peoples (in no particular order) are Jews and Hindus. I feel sorry for the Indians and Israelis who are both lumbered with hatemongers on all sides of their borders. Still with friends like US, who needs enemies!

        Bush understood Israel's need to defend itself.
        Obama stabbed Israel in the back by revealing sensitive information about Israel, saying that Jews had no right to build in their capital city, and demanding a return to the 1949 armistice lines as a precondition to peace talks. He created preconditions when there were none.

    There are also secular (mostly Communists or Anarchists) terrorists, but they are a minority compared to the peaceful secular individuals around the world.
    Why do you obsess with moral relativism so much, do you honestly believe that radical feminism is as dangerous as radical Islamism for say?
    If you think Israel is just as bad as Iran try walking in the middle of Tel Aviv with a turban on your head and then try walk in the middle of Tehran with a yarmulke on your head (hint: you probably won't survive the latter). Your hatred of jews is not rational.

  • Schlomotion

    I agree with this particular article. Although, Mr. Spencer does not say as much, his analysis holds true of anyone from any religion or culture who rationalizes terrorism, murder, or maiming. There are several Israeli Rabbis who do this as well. They use the expression rodef or "pursuer" to designate a person who may be killed extrajudicially. They use the expression moser or "snitch" to denote someone who deserves an arson, a beating, or vandalism. They use the expression pikuah nefesh or "saving a life" to rationalize collateral damage during war. Haredim and people from Gush Emunim probably think of one another as really nice guys, really pious people. Indeed, handsome, debonair, pious students can be capable of rationalized, self-excusatory brutality. Heck, even the local deacon can be a raging bigot. Such is life.

    • morty62

      The difference is that what is a mis-guided fringe within Judaism and Christianity, unsupported by sacred texts, is a majority in Islam, where the behavior is supported by sacred texts.

      • Schlomotion

        I disagree. In your favored religious texts, that violence which is not prescribed as mandatory or acceptable is rationalized by Biblical or Torahic precedent instead, and almost always, a man or a committee perpetrates an act of violence that is later blamed on God or on Angels.

        • morty62

          There is nothing in the New Testament that mandates or justifies violence against one's fellow man. In fact, the opposite is true. As for the Torah, the tribal and other violence containted therein is tied to specific cultural events. There is no call for perpetual war against some perpetueal "unbeliever" and no mandate to spread faith until it dominates all others. As for the harsh Mosaic laws found in the Torah, centuries of interpretation via the Talmud and Midrash, combined with the influence of Reform Judaism, have made these historical practices practically irrelevant in the modern world. Jews don't kill their children for disrespecting them, don't stone adulterers, and don't execute people for sorcery. What separates Islam from the other Abrahamic religions is its unwillingness or inability to adapt to modern customs based on universal human rights. It is a moribund, inflexible ideology that traps its adherents in a pre-Enlightenment mindset completely incompatible with modernity.

          • Kufar Dawg

          Nope. Only liars lie. That's the bottom line here. There are clear distinctions between the texts that anyone reading them can see unless they absolutely do not want to see them. The majority of people do the distinctions and that is why statistically you see so much violence in Islam and with the others, not much at all. Even more rare is the claim that the texts supports their violence, because the texts don't.

          It would be like using Abraham Lincoln's assassination to justify vigiliantism. See that happen much? Me neither. Learn the lessons of history and don't try to say people are so stupid that they'll just get confused and copy what they like. Yeah, psychos can appear anywhere but what is under discussion is what is the effect of the texts, not what do people do in common that is beyond any control or influence of anyone else.

      schlo is so toxic that he is actually beneficial. most evil takes a little bit of perspective to discern. even a moral midget can see the poison that makes schlo what he is. schlo may be a beardless muslim. in the other hand, he may have the beard. either way, muslim, or muslim sound alike, anyone can recognize the evil he represents.

      • Kufar Dawg

        Yet Schlo-mind is so arrogant in his superiority he doesn't think anyone can see through his thin veneer of urbane civility (yeah, I threw some ten dollar words in there just for Schlo).

    Well, serious now..
    If we want to save western culture (You know, the one with refrigerators, ipods Beethoven, Leonardo and Einstein) a judeo-christian strong alliance is urgently needed.
    Let's start working on it

      It's not only Judaism and Christianity that are threatened by islamofascism. Atheists, Communists, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Bahai have all been slaughtered and persecuted by scuzzlums in the name of pisslam.

    Not just Western alliance. Hindus in India have been suffering Islamic tyranny since the Moguls invaded India nearly 1000 years ago. Hindus have been wiped out in Kashmir, where Hinduism originated, due to Pakistani terrorism, rape & decimation of Hindus. This ethnic-cleansing has and will never be reported in Western media. The Judeo-Christian West should make allies with other cultures & faiths terrorized by Islam: Hindus, Budhists, Sikhs. We are all in this together.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Afghanistan was once a peaceful region of Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists. Yet all evidence that such a culture even existed in Afghanistan has been deliberately and systematically eliminated by islamofascism with the most obvious example of such cultural cleansing being the destruction of two 2000 year old statues of Buddha by islamofascists in Afghanistan for no other reason than they were not islamic.

      Well there is hope, Burma just put a foot up the muslims azz and won't tolerate them there, hopefully it spreads like widfire.

    It looks like Sharia-moron has has suffered muslime meltdown syndrome and reverted to his jihadi roots.
    You can take the muslime out of the jihad, but you can't take the jihad out of the muslime!

    For whatever reasons Americans tend to place inordinate importance on 'likeability' and being a 'nice guy (or girl)'. So when 'nice guys' or 'likeable' people commit atrocious acts many people are bewildered. They ask "How can someone so quiet, so intelligent, so likeable, so pleasant possibly commit heinous crimes and despicable acts?' I don't pretend to know the answers to these questions. Professional mental health providers are as dumbfounded as the rest of us.

    How many salespeople have we met who seemed like terrific individuals but whose ultimate purpose is to have us part company with our money so that they can benefit financially? We exclaim 'But they seemed so nice and caring, concerned with my welfare and well-being!'

    When we are deceived, misled, taken advantage of our human nature rebels against admitting that we've 'been had' or 'taken for a ride'. Our vanity and pride make such admissions difficult. Yet if we don't admit and accept our vulnerabilities and limitations how will we avoid becoming victims on a recurring basis? Evil has very often clothed itself in goodness, caring, innocence, altruism, munificence, charity and laudatory intentions.

    Hopefully those who voted for Obama in 2008 will have sufficient humility and honesty to admit their mistake and to not repeat it in 2012. None of us is perfect but we don't have to repeat mistakes and failures because our vanity or selfishness continues to rule our lives and choices. Let us accept the election of 2008 as a lesson learned and not perpetuate the tragedy which it inaugurated.

    We love Robert Spencer. I've been an ardent reader of all of his writing with Fpm and also of all the writers of this Websites. I'm most appreciated for the effort in bringing truth to the people who are as much like you loves truth and nothing but the truth. Please do continue to keep up the good job, because we as people really need you to keep us inform of what we may never be informed by the mass media. CHEERS to you and all with FPM. Long live to freedom and truth. Death to evil, lies and deceptions.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Ditto. The courage and bravery of Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller can't be denied. They still speak publicly, despite the fact of the many death threats they've received from their islamic fanbase.

    Shave off that stupid, scruffy beard of yours, punk. Now powder your face, put some eyeshade and lipstick on, and some hot pants. Very good. Now when you're behind bars, be sure to giggle like a little girl while in the presence of prisoners that are bigger than yourself. You just might get lucky…

    The likes of Nafis continue to come into America with the same deadly intent and with the
    support of politicians that we pay. The last time I checked paying for your own destruction
    was a sicko form of suicide, that Americans are unaware enmasse of the peril being
    imported and coddeled by leftists in government and for that matter all who hate us and
    work for our destruction, for America the worst is yet to come. America drinks beer, enjoys
    sports, goes crazy over various new idle shows and at the same time is ending as a
    Nation and society. Deportation and retribution are answers to outrageous conduct,
    by the subverting inbound colonists and by the enablers……….this is possible if America
    wakes up and returns to responsible and serious living…………….William

      The day of retribution is coming, for all the enablers of these 3rd world savages will at one point have to pay the fiddler for their crimes.

    Why is it so difficult for the Western mind to accept the FACT that Islam does NOT mean PEACE but only SUBMISSION?

    That is submission to the wills of Allah & Muhammad; that is SHARIA?

    Muhammad is considered the most PERFECT male that has ever been created whose followers must emulate him and his Quran to the letter without ever questioning its instructions.

    Hence, anyone with a minimum of logic reading – not even studying – Muhammad's Quran can come to only ONE conclusion: It is Hatemongering, Warmongering, Racist, Misogynist, Duplicitous and hence most assuredly Ungodly.

    That is exactly WHY his male followers especially are his perfect clones with utter disregard to human life of Unbelievers and contempt for their constitutions and laws (because they are not from Allah).

    Anyone wanting to know more just Google 'alrassooli' and be surprised!

    there may be wonderful, peaceful, gentle muslims. the problem is that there is no way to know what is in their heart. we do know what is in their scriptures, which they have been force fed since birth, and what is in their scriptures is pure evil. imho, if they were truly peaceful, they would repudiate their scriptures, run screaming from the evil that their true believers promote, and join any other or no religion. those we could identify easily. they are called apostates. those who have not repudiated islam should not be allowed within a missile shot of any free society. yes, at great expense, we will imprison nafis, but the real criminals will remain free and unrepentent. the real criminals are the traitors in government that allowed him to enter our country.

    Put him in a prison with some Irish and Hispanic Roman Catholics.

  • Sunbeam

    "the real criminals are the traitors in government that allowed him to enter our country."

    That is why comes this Nov 6, the rights of all Americans must be exercised to the full. Americans could not take its security for granted and the peace the people had been enjoying all this while, taking into consideration the mass aliens admitted into the country. What have you seen the last four years? Has America been better off and its bias foreign policy? Are you sure given another four more years will turn around things as the President had suggested that he would fixed things?. As we see thru the lens of our eyes, one can only conclude that the Obama Administration with Obama at the helm are putting themselves first above the nation. Their image (with the aliens) seems more important than the United States itself. This is a dangerous course to pursue. In the long run the security of the nation would be threaten. It is also utterly dangerous to have to appease to the enemies always, knowing full well of its intent and goal. All in all America will stand to loose if such were to continue. We do not wish to see America deteriorate further at the outcome of this whole scenario.

      My worry is that the election results have already been rigged and the outcome decided.
