It’s the jihad, stupid!

The New York Post reports: “Four homegrown Muslim terrorists on a mission from hell were arrested last night as they planted what they thought were high-powered plastic explosives at two Bronx synagogues, authorities said.” Why would they do something like that? “They stated they wanted to commit jihad,” NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said in a press conference. Three of the four jihadi wannabes (to borrow the Post’s formulation) converted to Islam after recent stints in jail.

JOHN adds: This case illustrates one of the perils of putting terrorist leaders in prisons, as opposed to special facilities like Guantanamo Bay.
