Terror Suspect Converted To Islam In Prison Mislead Topic On Paltalk

Stewart ANG tower

An imam who spoke with one of the four men who were arrested for allegedly planning attacks on Jewish synagogues in New York and on aircraft at Stewart Air National Guard base says the man had a terrible misunderstanding of Islam - an indoctrination he received when he was converted in prison.

Many inmates find people of like mind to run with while in prison - whether gangs or practitioners of a common religion. Freelancing in the joint provides no protection from predator inmates. So the question arises, how mislead are those who are converted to Islam while in prison?

Joining us to talk about this issue on News Talk Online on at 5 PM New York time today will be Fordham Law Professor John Pfaff, an expert in prison sentencing and guidelines. CLICK HERE to talk to him then.

Gary Baumgarten BREAKING NEWS: FBI arrests 4 men in NY City in alleged plot to detonate bomb outside Jewish temple .

Nancy Bas Mo Agram at 7:24am May 21
James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen, all of Newburgh, were charged with conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction within the United States and conspiracy to acquire and use anti-aircraft missiles, the U.S. attorney's office said.
I am surprised they don't call them terrorists ,maybe because they're not Muslim. :)
This is what I commented on the 21st of May on your Facebook Gary, and now in face of this recent event, it seems as if what I said is true. Now its a big scene because they converted to Islam, but the other event didn't cause as much stirrup.

They converted to Islam :) now we call them terrorists, does that mean if you are not muslim and you do crime you're just a criminal, but if the same crime occurs but the suspect is muslim he's a terrorist.
so should we change the definition in our dictionary for word terrorisim- to one who commits a crime who is Muslim. :)

I hardly believe that every terrorist is a Muslim though, yes, there are those who are trying to make that a definition Nancy.

Timothy McVeigh, for example, was not a Muslim. Neither were the members of the FALN who committed 120 bombings across the Untied States in the 70s and 80s. And how about the radical Christians who have blown up abortion clinics or even shot abortion doctors?

Thanks Gary, for the show, people will start realizing that Islam is a religion, just like any other religion, but whoever is doing a crime that are naming themselves under Islam are giving Islam a bad name. Because I don't think a true Muslim would harm any other person.
