On June 29, 2007 a car was discovered outside a popular nightclub in London with a homemade explosive device burning in it. Then a day later Bilal Abdullah, a British-born, Muslim doctor of Iraqi descent and Kafeel Ahmed, also known as Khalid Ahmed, drove a dark green Jeep Cherokee loaded with propane canisters was driven into the glass doors of the Glasgow International Airport terminal and set it ablaze.
None of the bombs in those cars did any damage (Thank G-d), but it scared the British for they had no word on these Jihadists or their plot.
NEW YORK -- New York mayor Michael Bloomberg says a suspicious vehicle in Times Square "did indeed contain an explosive device."Mayor Bloomberg has no idea who would do this type of act or what their motive would be. Mmmm, here is a guess. Check the Muslim community and the motive is simple: Jihad.
Police found the device in the smoking sport utility vehicle Saturday evening. They then cleared the streets of thousands of tourists milling through the landmark district so they could dismantle the device.
A white robotic police arm broke windows of the black Nissan Pathfinder to remove any explosive materials while heavily armed police and emergency vehicles shut down the city's busiest streets, teeming with taxis and theatergoers on one of the first summer-like days of the year.
Investigators removed bomb-making materials, including propane tanks, explosive powders and a crude timing device, top police spokesman Paul Browne said.
"There were explosive elements, including powder, gasoline, propane and some kind of electrical wires attached to a clock," Browne said early Sunday. "No motive has been identified."
An officer noticed smoke coming from the sport utility vehicle around 6:30 p.m. and cleared the streets. The area remained closed more than seven hours later.
Police are investigating a report that someone was seen running from the vehicle at some point and are reviewing security videotapes, Browne said. The Nissan Pathfinder's license plates do not match the car's registration, he said.
Police evacuated several residential and commercial buildings and cleared the streets of people. Police were deployed around the area with heavy weapons on empty streets in the heart of busy midtown Manhattan.
