On Monday morning, Akayed Ullah allegedly attempted to blow himself up at a New York City Port Authority Bus Terminal. Failing to achieve the martyrdom of an Islamic murder-suicide, Ullah was badly injured in his arm and torso. The response of his family? Anger at law enforcement for their treatment of the would-be terrorist.
Albert Fox Cahn, legal director for New York's Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, spoke to New York’s WABC on behalf of Ullah’s family:
“We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today, and by the allegations being made against a member of our family.”
That would’ve been enough; but in a world enabled by triggered social justice warriors and identity politics...in an era of NFL kneeling, Black Lives Matter, and police officers receiving more condemnation than criminals, why stop there?
“But we are also outraged by the behavior of law enforcement officials who have held children as small as four years old out in the cold and who held a teenager out of high school classes to interrogate him without a lawyer, without his parents…These are not the sorts of actions that we expect from our justice system, and we have every confidence that our justice system will find the truth behind this attack and that we will, in the end, be able to learn what occurred today.”
A special "thank you" to the American Left.
27-year-old Ullah was severely injured after a bomb attached to him detonated in an underground area between New York’s Port Authority and Times Square. Miraculously, Ullah survived, no doubt thanks in part to the efforts of emergency medical personnel. Unfortunately, four bystanders were injured, though not seriously.
Ullah came to the United States in 2011 from Bangladesh. Reportedly, he told authorities he chose the location for his terror attack due to Christmas advertisements he’d seen in the area. According to authorities, he was inspired by ISIS.
