FBI Raids NYC Homes of Suspected Al-Qaida Members

File this under Enemy Within. Islamists are among us and working to overthrow our way of life. Their goal is to impose Sharia on all of mankind. Fortunately, this bunch has been caught, but there is no telling how many others there are. This bust is a reminder that the Islamists are hard at work even as you read this. Our porus borders and lax immigration policies make it easy for determined terrorists to slip into the country to carry out their attacks.

In the past several years, the tempo of international Muslim terrorism has increased and will not subside till the West takes serious action to halt them.

If you see something, say something.


FBI Raids NYC Homes of Suspected Al-Qaida Members

WASHINGTON -- FBI agents and police raided three apartments in New York City before dawn Monday during an investigation of a man suspected of being an al-Qaida associate. The searches came after the man, who was under surveillance for possible links to the terror network, visited New York City over the weekend and left the area, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said after receiving a briefing on the operation from federal law enforcement officials Monday.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., who also was briefed Monday, said a terrorist attack was not believed to be imminent. He added that the law enforcement action was unrelated to President Barack Obama's visit to the city Monday.
New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne confirmed that searches were conducted in the borough of Queens by agents of a joint terrorism task force.

Residents on Monday described officers armed with search warrants swarming their immigrant neighborhood at about 2:30 a.m. One, Afghanistan native Akbari Amanullah, said when he arrived home from work afterward, he was told that one of his roommates had been hauled away.
No arrests were announced. Neither the FBI nor the NYPD would discuss the whereabouts of the al-Qaida suspect or whether anyone was being held for questioning in New York.

A White House spokesman said Obama, who spoke on Wall Street on Monday, had been briefed on the investigation.
