The Joint FBI/NYPD Task Force arrests two going to start a jihad abroad at JFK Airport….

The FBI/NYPD Joint Terrorist Task Force members placed two men under arrest as they tried to leave the US from New York’s JFK Airport last night…..

Mohamed Mahmoud Alessa, 20, of North Bergen, New Jersey, and Carlos Eduardo Almonte, 24, of Elmwood Park, New Jersey where detained just before boarding two separate flights out the country…The Task Force began investigating the two after friends and family members of the two became concerned with the two’s interest in violence and terrorism…..

The FBI and New Jersey police conducted evidence securing raids at their homes in New Jersey after the two where arrested…..

Alleged plotter: "I wanna, like, be the world's known terrorist."

The FBI received a tip regarding the men’s activities in October 2006, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office in New Jersey.

The tip, from someone who knew the men, said, “Every time they access the Internet all they look for is all those terrorist videos. … They keep saying that Americans are their enemies, that everybody other than Islamic followers are their enemies … and they all must be killed.”

As part of the investigation, an undercover officer with the New York Police Department’s intelligence unit “recorded numerous meetings and conversation” with the two men, prosecutors said.

During those meetings, they discussed a plan under which they would save thousands of dollars and physically condition themselves through paintball and other training, then acquire military gear and apparel for use overseas, and buy plane tickets to Egypt with the intent to travel to Somalia.

“The defendants also discussed their obligation to wage violent jihad and at times expressed a willingness to commit acts of violence in the United States,” prosecutors said…..
