Another Muslim terrorist who wants to destroy our quality of life and safety, Ashiqul Alam Queens NY arrested. Sources say the man expressed an interest in buying explosives that he was allegedly planning to use in New York; specifically in the Times Square area. Police then set up an undercover sting operation to catch the suspect when he went to purchase the weapons. A man accused of planning to attack Times Square in New York City has been arrested and is being held without bail. Sources tell CBS News the FBI keyed in on suspect Ashiqul Alam based on suspicious social media activity and reached out to him in August of 2018. Alam allegedly praised al-Qaeda and ISIS over the course of 10 months of clandestine meetings with an undercover officer. According to court papers, Alam said the September 11th attacks were "a complete success." The 22-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant from Queens zeroed in on attacking New York City. Aslam said he wanted to use "suicide vests" or AR-15 rifles in an attack on Times Square. He and the undercover agent went on several reconnaissance runs there. Alam said a successful attack would make them "legends."
A suspect described as “a lone wolf” was arrested Thursday in connection with a plan to throw explosives at people in New York City’s famed Times Square, according to reports. The unidentified suspect was taken into custody soon after investigators from the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force learned that he was inquiring about buying grenades, the New York Daily News reported. The suspect, whose name has not been released, was arrested after the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force — which includes NYPD officers — caught wind of his queries into buying grenades, sources said.
Times Square stretches from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Brightly adorned with billboards and advertisements, Times Square is sometimes referred to as "The Crossroads of the World". The area has been the subject of Muslim terror plots before. In 2010, Pakistani-American Faisal Shahzad tried, and failed, to set off a bomb in a vehicle in Times Square, authorities said. He was arrested after street vendors tipped off police to the abandoned car. He pleaded guilty that year to charges including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, and was sentenced to life in prison.
ISIS LONE WOLF ATTACK COULD TARGET CHRISTMAS SHOPPERS IN TIMES SQUARE NY WITH A CAR BOMB, A TERROR TARGET FOR YEARS. A Muslim terror plot to attack New York City including Times Square and the subway system was foiled with the help of an undercover FBI agent in October 2016 and in May 2010. "The planned attacks included detonating bombs in Times Square and the New York City subway system and shooting civilians at specific concert venues, “these Americans need an attack.” One man in the October 2016 plot, Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, 19, and two others in Pakistan and the Philippines are under arrest and face charges of plotting the attacks which they hoped to carry out in the name of the Islamic State group. Muslim terrorist Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy sent an undercover FBI agent an image of Times Square, saying that "we seriously need a car bomb" to attack it. He allegedly wanted to "create the next 9/11".
NY POST July 31, 2017...Costumed characters in Times Square are giving the finger to attempts to rein them in, refusing to stay in designated areas and continuing to curse in front of kiddies and threaten passers-by for dough.Foul-mouthed desnudas, grabby Hulks and tourist-terrorizing gangs of Minnie Mice are still brazenly holding the Crossroads of the World hostage even amid a heavy presence of NYPD cops, who act oblivious to their disturbing antics. At any given moment on two recent afternoons, only half of the two-dozen tip-mooching characters stayed behind the blue lines of Times Square’s “Designated Activity Zones,” or DAZs, the city-mandated areas created last year as their boundary for posing for photos and asking for tips.
The most shameless of the costumed pack repeatedly left the DAZs to grab, mob and berate tourists — “Take a photo lady! Mami!” shouted a trio of overly-aggressive Minnie Mice — in their frantic pursuit of cash. NYPD officers’ hands were tied since most of the costumed panhandlers are illegal — and under the MAYOR de Blasio administration, it’s a no-no to go after them. The law-enforcement source added that past proposals to license the creatures went nowhere because most of the panhandlers are illegal immigrants and they wouldn’t register anyway.
What's to stop ISIS terrorists to dress up as these costumed street characters with suicide bomb vests underneath the costume and create complete havoc in Times Square with coordinated detonations, just like the Boston Marathon Bombing? Starting June 21st 2016 the costumed street characters were confined to the new zones — 10-foot-by-50-foot rectangles marked off with teal-colored paint on the pavement of pedestrian plazas between West 42nd and West 47th streets, where Broadway and Seventh Avenue crisscross, but the goons roam all over the area anyway.
