An Algerian born disgrace in Queens has gotten 10 years in the pen
for plotting to bomb synagogues:
A Queens man was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison for plotting to "create chaos" by blowing up Manhattan synagogues.
Algerian-born Ahmed Ferhani, the first terrorist convicted on state terror laws passed after 9/11, could have faced 25 years behind bars if convicted on all counts at trial. But he copped a plea last year.
"This defendant walked far across the bridge of and to terrorism," said Assistant District Attorney. Gary Galperin. "Now the bridge is crossed and now this defendant must stand and watch it burn."
Ferhani delivered a statement before Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus handed down the decade-long sentence. Wearing glasses perched on the top of his shaved head and clad in a bright orange jumpsuit, he choked up as vowed to redeem himself.
"My goals and dreams have only been postponed temporarily," the bearded convict told the judge. "I will use this time to strengthen my mind and character. My spirit has not been broken and will never be."
Defense lawyer Lamis Deek, who called her client a victim of entrapment before and after his plea, railed against the police department for "dividing the community" by seeking out and coaxing Muslims into taking part in terrorist plots.
I think this disgusting man - and his lawyer - are full of taqqiya, and his whining is a telling clue of that. Instead of making clear that her client has blame to shoulder for willingly searching for explosives to buy, she blames the police for "encouraging" him, when he should know better than to engage in abominations. His sentence is not enough, and he should have received more than he got.
