Or run us over with trucks.
Naji, 37, is one of more than 100 people to face charges since 2014 in cases related to ISIS, which has seized control of parts of Iraq and Syria.
Beginning in August 2015, a paid law enforcement informant made contact via Facebook with Naji, who the complaint said described ISIS as 'spreading like a virus' that non-believers 'can't stop it no matter what they do.'
Those conversations included one on July 19, 2016, five days after an attack in Nice, France, that Islamic State had claimed responsibility for that killed 84 and hurt hundreds, the complaint said.
In that conversation, Naji expressed his support for staging a similar attack in New York's Times Square, according to court papers.
You can stop viruses.The question is whether we will.
Mohamed Naji talked about a possible attack on Times Square during a recorded conversation with a paid informant, according to court documents. The conversation took place on July 19, 2016, five days after the terror attack in Nice, France, FBI Special Agent Sean Puhalovic wrote in the affidavit supporting Naji’s arrest.If only there were some way to stop murderous followers of a creed that commands them to kill for Allah from entering the United States...
During the conversation Naji said the attacker “crushed them quickly,” when talking about the attack.
“I was saying if there is a truck, I mean a garbage truck and one drives it there to Times Square and crushes them shshshshshsh…Times Square day,” Naji told the informant.
“They want an operation in Times Square,” Naji said, referring to ISIS. “Reconnaissance group already put out a scene, the Islamic State put up scenes of Times Square you understand I said that was an indication for whoever is smart to know.”
When asked who will carry out the attack, Naji told the informant, “Allah’s people, the Islamic State.”
