Attempted bomb attack in New York

A bomb was set off by a man in a busy New York bus terminal, It has been described as an attempted terrorist attack. Four people have been reported as injured.

NY Post: Suicide bomber strikes New York City at rush hour

An ISIS-inspired would-be suicide bomber set off a homemade explosive device at the Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station Monday morning, seriously wounding himself and injuring three others, law enforcement sources said.

The man — a 27-year-old Brooklyn man identified by high ranking police sources as Akayed Ullah — had wires attached to him and a 5-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his midsection as he walked through the Manhattan transit hub.

The man partially detonated the device, which he was carrying under the right side of his jacket, prematurely.

Police quickly took the man into custody.

Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the man was inspired by ISIS and possibly born in Bangladesh.

Bratton, who said the man had been living in the US for seven years, “was supposedly setting the device off in the name of ISIS.”

“So, definitely a terrorist attack, definitely intended,” Bratton said.

The man, who suffered the most serious injuries, was taken to Bellevue Hospital.

Three others suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

This will be disconcerting for New Yorkers in particular.

    Shame the sod isn’t dead.

      Yes. But it sounds like he accidentally set it off & his device failed to detonate properly. If it had, others would probably be dead too, & he’d be another martyr for the perverted cause. Hopefully he’s in bad shape, suffering pain & indignity. It’s actually a victory to be able to name, shame, charge, interrogate & parade him as a failed attempted murderer & follower of Islam.

        Is it really worth the cost? The sod might pervert other losers while in jail as well.

          Their President is probably more likely to provoke other attacks than this loser.

            It’s strange that these attacks come no matter who is president and no matter what is said and how much appeasement is offered.
            But when there is a Trump in power he is somehow partly to blame for inciting.

            Well, yes, they’re going to have continuing problems with Muslim terrorist because they’re killing Muslims elsewhere in the World. And they’ve alloed some in to their own country. It’s a quandary.

              Or there is a militant form of Islam that simply wants to impose Sharia around the world and is happy to use terrorism wherever necessary.
              Have Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, India…etc etc been killing off Muslims elsewhere in the world?

              Spain was. I think they might’ve pulled out of the US coalition after the Madrid attack. Britain, France & Germany are killing Muslims in the Middle East. Possibly Belgium is too, not sure. I’m not sure about India. Do they have troops in any coalitions in Afghanistan or the Middle East. Western Troops fighting Muslims in the Middle East & elsewhere is the major factor behind most of these Islamic terrorist attacks in the West.

          Muslims now run some jails. They are know for their viciousness and endless recruiting of fellow inmates. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if some radicals voluntarily give up their freedom to work in the prison system recruiting.

            Which jails in the US are Muslims running? Apart from Guantanamo Bay, I mean. I get the impression they’re not running that one.

    Yep, my musings of a few days ago is coming to fruition. Thankfully this worthless prick failed. Unfortunately, others wont.

    France, Britain, US, Belgium….New Zealand. Oh, Wheel Of Fortune, please don’t spin our way

    The Muslims are taking over prisons in Britain.

    Appeasement…unbelievable.

      Gangs said to be ‘taking over’ prisons isn’t new. Worldwide.

      Is the Gatestone Institute to be believed?

        ”Is the Gatestone Institute to be believed?”

        Well, find another source to confirm. I could give you many.

        ”Gangs said to be ‘taking over’ prisons isn’t new. Worldwide.”

        That is irrelevant. We are talking Muslims. To repeat:

        ”Guards also said they had a policy of “appeasement” towards the powerful and growing Islamic prison population, particularly convicted terrorists who were feared to be recruiting future extremists.”

          You could select inmates from any prison and select what they say to present the same story with the exception of using the word ‘Muslim.’ Are gang scum ‘running’ prisons and doing what they do worse than Muslim gangs?

          Do the Gatestone Institute have a particular agenda? I’d never heard of them until today.

          “The Gatestone Institute is a right-wing think tank that publishes articles, particularly pertaining to Islam and the Middle East. The organization has attracted attention for publishing false articles.”
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gatestone_Institute

          “Gatestone Institute is anti-Islamic, pro-Christian and Jewish/Israel.”
          https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/gatestone-institute/

          “One of America’s Most Dangerous Think Tanks Is Spreading Islamophobic Hate Across the Atlantic. The Gatestone Institute has pumped out reams of dangerous anti-Muslim propaganda, and its ties to UK groups deserve close scrutiny.”

            Ok, lets deconstruct your argument.

            1- Fist paragraph. The point you are missing is Muslims are recruiting fellow prisoners inside to commit acts of terrorism against us.

            Do you not think that marks Muslims as different to other gangs inside? I mean, how many gangs are recruiting people to run over women, children
            and dogs?

            ”Do the Gatestone Institute have a particular agenda? I’d never heard of them until today.”

            This is where you strayed from what I asked.. I asked you to confirm whether their facts where right or wrong.

            ”One of America’s Most Dangerous Think Tanks Is Spreading Islamophobic Hate Across the Atlantic.”

            That may be. But a fact is a fact. No matter who states it. Islam has no problem spreading hate across the globe.

            Have another go.

    How come only President Trump ”gets it?”

      But he doesn’t get it. This is complaining about Christians being punished & discriminated against by Islamic judges in Pakistan. He only recently swanned about in Saudi Arabia telling the Saudi rulers how wonderful they are. They’re among the absolute worst Islamic regimes for discriminating against & persecuting Christians.
