NY Terrorist Suspect Said Something Mel Gibson-like
He may not be Mel Gibson, but terrorist suspect Adis Medunjanin might have done something sort of Mel Gibson-like after he was arrested last year in connection with an alleged al-Qaeda-sanctioned plot to blow up New York’s subway system.
The New York Daily News reports that FBI agent Aaron Spivack testified Monday at a pretrial hearing in Brooklyn federal court that Medunjanin, after his arrest, wanted to know if the agent was Jewish. He also called Judiasm “the wrong religion.”
“He began to talk religious talk . . . about how Judaism was the wrong religion . . . it was like a lecture or a speech,” Spivack said, according to the Daily News.
The suspect’s attorneys wanted the judge to toss the incriminating statements and said their client was denied access to a lawyer, AP reported.
Authorities allege that Medunjanin and co-conspirators Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay plotted to blow up the subway and were, in part, motivated by their hate for Israel, the Daily News reported.
As you might recall, after Mel Giblson was arrested in Malibu, Calif. on July 28, 2006, he said to the arresting officer James Mee, who is Jewish: “F— Jews…the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”
Sounds like the Medunjanin, the suspected terrorist, might have been a little more polite.
