|Jihad Watch : Not that this has anything to do with Islam, right, Mr. Miller? New York Deputy Police Commissioner John Miller says,
“This isn’t about Islam, this isn’t about the mosque he attends.” He is
ignoring the reality in front of his face, and depriving himself of the
ability to understand Saipov’s motives and goals.
“Feds reveal what they found in NYC terror suspect Sayfullo Saipov’s truck,” by Stefan Becket, CBS News, November 2, 2017:
NEW YORK — The suspect charged in
Tuesday’s terrorist attack in lower Manhattan had two cell phones with
90 videos of propaganda about the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and 3,800 images related to the terrorist group, prosecutors said.
In an affidavit
filed in federal court on Wednesday, FBI agent Amber Tyree revealed
what investigators discovered in the rental truck used to mow down 20
people along a bike lane in lower Manhattan, killing eight of them and seriously injuring 12.
Sayfullo Saipov, a 29-year-old native of Uzbekistan, was charged
with providing material support to a terrorist organization and using a
vehicle to cause violence. Investigators say Saipov was inspired by ISIS
to carry out the attack, the deadliest in New York since 9/11. The use
of a truck to run over civilians closely mirrors similar attacks that
have plagued Europe. ISIS has posted instructions and urged its
followers to carry out such an attack on its propaganda channels online.
Saipov is said to have rented a pickup truck from a Home Depot in New
Jersey before driving into Manhattan to carry out the attack. He
traveled for nearly a mile down a bike lane next to the West Side
Highway, coming to a stop only after he slammed into a schoolbus. He
then exited the vehicle carrying a black bag, a pellet gun and a
paintball gun, yelling “God is great” in Arabic. Saipov was soon shot by a police officer and taken into custody.
