|Jihad Watch : The U.S. has not been bombing in Bangladesh, but of course he doesn’t
mean Bangladesh. He means the Islamic State caliphate, allegiance to
which transcends all other earthly allegiances.
“Suicide bombing suspect was a cab driver bent on revenge: cops,” by
Shawn Cohen, Max Jaeger, Reuven Fenton and Natalie Musumeci, New York Post, December 11, 2017 :
The would-be suicide bomber who detonated an explosive
device underground near the bustling Port Authority Bus Terminal is a
former New York City cab driver who told investigators that he was
inspired by ISIS to carry out the attack for revenge, law enforcement
Akayed Ullah, 27, who is believed to be from Bangladesh and was
living in Brooklyn, told authorities in sum and substance from his
hospital bed: “They’ve been bombing in my country and I wanted to do
damage here,” sources said. He told cops he was inspired by ISIS, but police don’t believe he had any direct contact with the group, sources said.
Ullah, who officials say is a former city cab driver whose license
has lapsed, set off a “low-tech” homemade pipe bomb strapped to his
midsection around 7:20 a.m. inside the subway passageway between West
42nd Street and Eighth Avenue and West 42nd Street and Seventh Avenue….
Ullah, who had the explosive device affixed to him with Velcro and
zip ties, suffered burns to his hands and abdomen, along with
lacerations, and injured three others who were in proximity to him. He
was quickly taken into custody and transported to Bellevue Hospital.
