Jihadist Wanted to Mutilate Gays

Jihadist Wanted to Mutilate Gays


A 20-year-old terrorist suspect from New Jersey showed early signs of violent tendencies, including threatening to mutilate gay people, according to the New York Daily News.

Mohamed Hahmood Alessa, one of two men arrested at New York's Kennedy Airport June 5 in connection with an alleged terrorist plot, was expelled from high school in 2004 for making threats. Alessa directed menacing warnings to gays and expressed intentions that included "subordinating women and blowing up the school with a gang of Muslims," according to the article.

When Alessa tried to return to his high school in 2006, he was once again considered too dangerous to attend, and administrators alerted Homeland Security about his dysfunctional behavior. Alessa spent part of his teen years with a tutor and security guard receiving isolated instruction due to his behavior issues.
