A terrorist organization had the pair look for potential targets in New York and Panama, according to U.S. authorities. They announced the arrests on Thursday.
Neither men were named Mohammad nor shared a derivative of that name, which many find remarkable.
Samer El Debek, 37, from Dearborn (aka Dearbornisthan) Michigan, and Ali Kourani, 32, of da Bronx, were charged in Manhattan federal court where I once locked my keys in the car the one and only time in my life--true story.
The two weasels were charged with providing support to a terrorist organization.
El Debek was arrested June 1st in Livonia, Michigan; Kourani was arrest the same day in da Bronx. Both scumbuckets were being held in New York City after court appearances.
Their defense attorneys didn't comment about the case when questioned.
Rosie O'Donnell is expected to tweet her support of them tonight.
Authorities said, in a release, that the two tried to provide support to Hezbollah's Islamic Jihad organization after receiving military training from the them.
Jeremy Corbyn, of UK infamy, believes Hezbollah, like ISIS, are just political groups with a message that runs counter to allowing anyone to hear the message.
El Debek is reported to have searched for potential targets in Panama, including the U.S. and Israeli embassies and ships in the Panama Canal. Like all Islamic terrorist organizations, and those who don't kill by their own hands, Hezbollah is commanded by the Quran to kill Jews and other infidels, so Israel happens to be a juicy target for them.
Kourani checked out American targets such as military and law enforcement facilities in New York City.
NYPD Commissioner James P. O'Neill said Kourani and others conducted covert surveillance of potential targets, including U.S. military bases and Israeli military personnel in New York City, as per the anti-Semitic Quranic commands directs them to do.
"Pre-operational surveillance is one of the hallmarks of Hezbollah in planning for future attacks," O'Neill said.
O'Neill also noted that Lebanon-born Kourani received sophisticated military training overseas at least twice, including the use of a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG).
El Debek, whose name translates to "Lift your tail" also was charged with possessing extensive bomb-making training from Hezbollah.
Kourani was trained as a teenager in Lebanon in 2000, when just a bushy-tailed toad of 16. He lawfully entered the U.S. in 2003 because even the Bush administration was too naive to see a problem in Islamic training courses in weapons. He then got a BS degree in biomedical engineering in 2009 and masters in business administration in 2013.
That was a big waste of an education.
