Faisal Shahzad, the failed Time Square bomber, was sentenced to life in prison in a Manhattan Court room on Tuesday, Oct. 5.
According to published reports on Bloomberg, "Faisal Shahzad was given a life prison sentence for driving a bomb-laden car into New York’s Times Square in May and trying unsuccessfully to blow it up.
U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum handed down the sentence today in a 25-minute proceeding in federal court in Manhattan. There is no parole in the federal penal system.
“You are a young man and you will have a long time to reflect on what you have done and what you have said, today and in the past,” Cedarbaum told Shahzad. The judge said she hopes Shahzad, a Muslim who worked with the Taliban in Pakistan, spends some of that time considering “whether the Koran wants you to kill lots of people.”
Faisal Shahzad response to the Judges sentencing: "We are only Muslims ... but if you call us terrorists, we are proud terrorists and we will keep on terrorizing you," he said.
He added: "We do not accept your democracy or your freedom because we already have Sharia law and freedom."
Cedarbaum caught Shahzad off during his diatribe to ask if he had sworn allegiance to the United States when he became a citizen last year. And he responded: "I did swear but I did not mean it," said Shahzad.
There you have it. How are we to believe anything that comes out of the mouths of these fundamentalist? Far too many liberals are busy trying to equate the wrong doings of the Catholic Church and other religions to Islamic radicals that they loose sight of the danger this country faces.
There is a false sense of safety among many who feel Americans and its Western allies including Israel has brought danger to the land because of past dealings with Muslims. BULL! These radicals are zealots and must be stopped by any means necessary!
While not all Muslims are terrorist and are out to harm, it is a very thin line between those who are and the ones who aren't.
