NY Jihadi Jose Pimentel, aka Mujahidfisabillilah, Busted
We've been waiting a very long time for this. We have so much on this dude that I'm not sure where to start except to note that we've been following Jose Pimentel for some time and he's one of those hip-hop wannabe type Jihadis.
That, and it took me oh about 15 seconds tracked the bastage down when we first really started looking hard at him back in July.
News is starting to leak about the arrest this weekend of a New York City man who planned to bomb police and military facilities. The NY Post reports:Here is a .pdf of the complaint against Jose Pimentel.The NYPD and Manhattan DA’s office have arrested a terror suspect who was planning to bomb city police facilities and US military sites, where he plotted to target returning war personnel and the families who gathered to welcome them home, The Post has learned.
The suspect, who lives in Manhattan, was arrested after he actually purchased bomb-making materials, sources said. He’d been on the authorities’ radar for about a year, the sources said.
It wasn’t immediately clear exactly where he planned to attack.
We can report here exclusively at PJM that the man arrested is Jose Pimentel of Harlem. On his Facebook page he describes himself as:
I am a Muslim convert from the Dominican Republic looking for other muslims living in the US specially in New York City to share a brotherhood with and to help each other stay firm on the religion. Also looking for anyone that wishes to learn more about Islam and other religions.
Jose was a prolific terrorist blogger and familiar face around the Revolution Muslim and Islam Policy websites. He shares a blog called http://www.kalamullah.com/ who's donations tracked back to Islam4UK and Islampolicy members.
His Youtube channel is here http://www.youtube.com/user/mujahidfisabillilah1.
Here are just a few of his websites.
Oh and Jose, watch the cornhole Akhi!
Update: Reading CNN's description of this guy as a Lone Wolf is laughable. This person is a widely known highly networked individual who was a very active al-Qaeda propagandist in the online Jihadi community.
UpdateII: A note the our friend Jihadi Princess: You can wipe the websites clean all you want. Its too late.
