Suicide bomber strikes New York subway

New York Post

An ISIS-inspired would-be suicide bomber set off a homemade explosive device at the Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station Monday morning, seriously wounding himself and injuring three others, law enforcement sources said.

The man — a 27-year-old Brooklyn man identified by high ranking police sources as Akayed Ullah — had wires attached to him and a 5-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his midsection as he walked through the Manhattan transit hub.

The man partially detonated the device, which he was carrying under the right side of his jacket, prematurely inside the passageway to the A, C and E trains at Eighth Avenue and West 42nd Street around 7:40 a.m., sources said.

Police quickly took the man into custody.

Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the man was inspired by ISIS and possibly born in Bangladesh.

Bratton, who said the man had been living in the US for seven years, “was supposedly setting the device off in the name of ISIS.”

“So, definitely a terrorist attack, definitely intended,” Bratton said.

    There, you see? Trump’s endless provocations of otherwise fully assimilated and law abiding Moslem-Americans, especially his recent recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, have provoked understandable and excusable Moslem-Rage in the followers of the Religion of Peace. ll Trump’s fault, he just doesn’t CAIR.

    • If Islam is a Religion of Peace (TM), why does it suddenly turn violent when provoked? Wouldn’t that mean it wasn’t peaceful to start with? o.O

        It’s all about who controls the narrative, Islam is the religion of peace while all of the others are false and regularly threaten/use violence forcing the usually peaceful Moslems to resort to self defense.

    Dangerous philosophies plus those who say the philosophy isn’t dangerous equals domination and dhimmihood.
