Four Newburgh Muslims Arrested, Plot to Bomb the Riverdale Synagogue and Jewish Center in Bronx NY & to Shoot Military Planes with Stinger Missiles, they got together at the Masjid Al-Ikhlas and bonded together when they found out they were all ex-con's. Wahhabist literature, Muslim Brotherhood tracts calling for Jihad, Saudi produced Qurans that exude hatred for Jews and Christians - all of this continues to flow into federal and state prisons unhampered.
Imam Salahuddin Muhammad is the spiritual leader of the Masjid Al-Ikhlas, the Newburgh mosque where the four terrorist wannabes met. Muhammad also has worked as a prison chaplain at Fishkill Correctional Facility since 1985, Fishkill was constructed in 1896, it began as the Mattawan State Hospital for the criminally insane -- alleged Bronx terrorist James Cromitie was imprisoned there in 1991.
Warith Deen Umar is a Muslim cleric who, prior to his retirement in 2000, spent some twenty years helping to run New York’s growing Islamic prison program, recruiting and training dozens of chaplains (Salahuddin Muhammad ), and ministering to thousands of inmates himself. With help from the Saudi government, he traveled to Saudi Arabia and brought that country's harsh form of Islam to New York's expanding ranks of Muslim prisoners.
He continues to visit New York state prisons as a volunteer chaplain. He believes that the 9/11 hijackers should be honored as martyrs, and that the U.S. risks further terrorism attacks because it oppresses Muslims around the world. “Without justice, there will be warfare, and it can come to this country, too,” he says.
Viewing African American prisoners as the natural candidates to help initiate such an attack, Imam Umar says the focus of his preaching usually "is on work, family and getting an education," but he also says that prison "is the perfect recruitment and training grounds for radicalism and the Islamic religion." Umar adds, "There is more happening in this country than most people know about," he says regarding the Muslim anger that is quietly building behind bars and on the outside.
