Ahmed Ferhani boasted, "I intended to create chaos and send a message of intimidation and coercion to the Jewish population of New York City." Meanwhile the Justice for Ahmed site says, "Ms. Ferhani came to America to escape religious persecution. Now she finds that her own son is the victim of religious and racial persecution by the American government. "
American "civil rights" activists are an odd bunch. When a Klan member is arrested for plotting to bomb a black church, it's a civil rights victory. But when a Muslim is arrested for plotting to bomb a Synagogue, then it's an attack on Muslim civil rights.
Ahmed Ferhani, who plotted to attack a synagogue, became the latest victim of "police entrapment", in the sense that he was caught trying to kill lots of Jews by a police informant.
In his plea statement, the man who would otherwise never have harmed a hair on a single head, boasted, "I intended to create chaos and send a message of intimidation and coercion to the Jewish population of New York City."
Meanwhile the Justice for Ahmed site says, "Ms. Ferhani came to America to escape religious persecution. Now she finds that her own son is the victim of religious and racial persecution by the American government. "
Once again, the American racist government is preventing Muslims like Ahmed Ferhani from carrying out their religious duty to kill Jews... is religious persecution. A website on behalf of a man who plotted to murder Jews claims that he's the victim of religious persecution for being prevented from killing Jews. As El Don King might say, "Only in Pakistan."
Never mind that Obama's Muslims First Justice Department refused to take this case, because you can't offend CAIR or any other Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
The civil rights defenders, like Elizabeth Fink, are of course on the side of bombing synagogues. Because blowing up synagogues is a new civil right.
Ferhani's defenders claim that he was "emotionally vulnerable", "depressed" and "bipolar" and that the entire plot to bomb a synagogue was the NYPD's idea. Because, of course, synagogue bombings is something the NYPD does a lot and that Muslims never do. Yet Ferhani looking quite chipper in court read through a conventional Muslim justification for killing Jews.
Ferhani's lawyer, Lamis Deek, whose Twitter account makes Ferhani look moderate, has been blatant about endorsing Hamas, saying, "When those who suffer most, who pay the ultimate price in Gaza support the resistance, how dare ‘activists’ opine on whether it’s strategic or it ‘alienates Americans’?"
"In choosing Hamas, what they chose was one united Palestinian state on all of the 1948 territories from the north to the very south. That is what Palestinians chose. And in supporting Palestinian choice we are saying we support their right to liberation from violent colonialism."
There you have it. Muslim civil rights and liberation is the murder and ethnic cleansing of Jews.
Now Ferhani has gotten his ten years followed by deportation and those who screamed "entrapment" will go on screaming it no matter how many times Ahmed Ferhani makes it clear to them that he is a racist bigot whose goal is the murder of Jews.
