Prosecutors To Take More Time To Prepare Case In Alleged Synagogue Plot

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — One of two men charged with plotting to blow up synagogues in New York City appeared in court Tuesday.

Prosecutors are going to take more time to bring the case to a grand jury, so Mohamed Mamdouh’s next appearance in court won’t be until June 2.

Mamdouh’s lawyer said that many cases that start out with wild allegations fall apart later.

Mamdouh’s alleged co-plotter Ahmed Ferhani did not appear in court.

The 26-year-old Ferhani and 20-year-old Mamdouh deny the allegations. At their arraignment last week, they were charged with conspiracy as a crime of terrorism under a rarely-used state law. Mamdouh has gone so far as to suggest any plans were Ferhani’s only.

Authorities say Ferhani was arrested in a sting buying guns, ammunition and an inert hand grenade. Mamdouh was picked up a few blocks away.

Prosecutors say an undercover detective secretly taped both men discussing a synagogue attack.

    Islam: It’s a Disease in need of a Cure.

    FACT: Everywhere where there are muSlimes, sh-!t happens.

    China — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children and run amok with metal pipes in the streets)

    India — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slimes burned 100s of hindus alive in packed trains and burned villagers alive while they slept)

    Middle East — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    Russia — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill women and children in crowded theaters)

    South East Asia — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slime thugs who kidnap teachers, school children, nurses, priests for ransom, than murder them all)

    Europe — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    USA — 9/11 happened

    Notice the pattern here? Even you sanctimonious twits can’t be that dense.

    Goes to reason, no muslimes, no sh-!t.
    All these camel turds understand is violence and lies anyway. I say we oblige them by killing them all and than lie about how sorry we are.

    Islam. It’s a disease. And like any other infestations of boils, pox and pestilence, it should be eradicated. You don’t talk to diseases. You eradicate them like you did polio and small pox.

    And some bleeding heart imbecile here will post that it’s just a few “radical” individuals that are murderous, just like any other society. But than conveniently forgetting about the Fact that it happens worldwide and by a LOT MORE than just a few individuals. And they also continues to blank out of their empty heads the worldwide mu-slime jubilee celebrations as people burned on 9/11.

    Mamdouh is a punk who got his nose broken last year by Josh Schwartz who was 15 or 16yrs old on Bell Blvd. Josh gave him a beating in front of VI Pizza. Mamdouh knows he cant fight and got his ass beat by a 15 yr old neighborhood kid. True story, ask around,,, Joshs’ buddy Terry”Sully” Sullivan gave his brother a beating too. Everybody hates those Arab kids.

      Could this be a racist thing ? Don’t know the hood. Is there many jews and arab residents there ? They look like sweet, honest young men who were probabaly influenced by a Iman at their Mosque.
