A man tried to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in lower Manhattan earlier today, law enforcement officials said.

The man, identified as 21-year-old Bangladeshi-born Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, was arrested earlier this morning in a dramatic FBI sting.

The suspect, supplied with fake explosives by an undercover FBI agent, parked a van filled with what he believed were explosives outside the building and tried to detonate it using his cell phone.

But his associates were actually undercover officers who arrested him at the scene — and the bomb was not real.

Federal prosecutors said that Nafis was closely monitored by the FBI in New York and members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, as well as the NYPD, and the public was never in danger.

Police sources told the New York Post that a Middle Eastern man parked a van full of what he thought were explosives in front of the building and attempted to detonate them via his cell phone.

The sources told the Post that the man had been set up in a sting, and was supplied explosives from an undercover FBI agent.

The building is only blocks away from ground zero and the nearly-complete One World Trade Center construction.

According to NBC New York, the man was arrested earlier today, and that he lives on Long Island.

They added that the public was never at risk of being in danger, as the operation was carefully monitored by both the FBI and the NYPD.

According to the FBI release, Nafis believed that he was going to detonate a 1,000 in front of the Federal Reserve Building, located on Liberty Street and had recorded a video message prior to the attack saying that he was setting out to ‘destroy America.’

After receiving the false bomb, he drove with the FBI agent from a warehouse outside the city to the Federal Reserve building. The two parked the van in front of the bank and walked to the nearby Millennium Hotel, according to WABC.

At the hotel, he recorded a video where he said: ‘We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom.’

Nafis tried repeatedly to detonate the bomb using his cell phone, to no avail.

When he met this morning with the undercover FBI agent, Nafis mentioned that he had a ‘Plan B’ should his van bombing plot fail. He allegedly told the agent that he was also considering a suicide attack.

He faces charges of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in addition to attempting to provide material support to al Qaeda.

    For real, or is this another one of those sting operations?

  • WmarkW

    Congratulation to the FBI for foiling another of their own terror plots.

    • puffdaddy

      Good one!

    • zWsA

      It’s always the same story: The FBI foils a bomb plot, tells us not to worry because the FBI was closely monitoring the entire operation, supplied the fake bombs, gave the suspect all the lines to sound like an extremist, and pressured the suspect to carry out an attack he had no interest in. This, of course, is not entrapment; it’s “counter-terrorism.” 

      Now you might be thinking, “why should White Americans care about a tactic used against Muslims in this country who deserve no mercy?” 

      Because Today’s Muslim is tomorrow’s Whitey. They’re just getting us comfortable with fewer and fewer rights so that when it’s our turn to be the enemy (it looks like we’re already halfway there) we won’t resist. Anti-terrorism laws set a dangerous precedent. With new laws enacted since 9-11, anyone deemed to be a potential terrorist could be denied their constitutional rights. White interest groups and anti-immigration groups could very well be categorized as extremists groups (many have already been labeled as “hate” groups by the ADL) in the future if the anti-White  establishment starts losing its ability to maintain order in an environment that is  increasingly unfavorable for the White majority. If and when the sleeping giant (White America) wakes up, expect tremendous counter-measures from the same system that robed Whites of trillions of dollars (through taxes) for disbursement to Non-Whites. This could one day be seen as the greatest financial theft in human history and it happened in plain sight without any opposition. There is no talk of reparations and no plans to stop this grand larceny which is still in progress.

      If even a Muslim can be treated severely by the US,  just imagine how a White person would be treated with no constitutional protections. At least the Muslim has the advantage of being “diverse.”

    Keep letting them into the country and we’ll continue to have these attempts.

      YUP, we should have fixed this…as opposed to going on yet another disasterous, global-babysitting adventure.

    • Epiminondas

      The government will become ever more tyrannical as it attempts to enforce multiculturalism.  When you bring dysfunctional societies into contact with Europeans, you get violence.  This will get worse as whites shrink in number.  Its a ticking time bomb.

  • At least he picked a proper target.  I would welcome the destruction of the Federal Reserve system.

    • MekongDelta69

      And the people in the building too?

      •  Absolutely the people in the building.  If you are working for the Federal Reserve you are a financial terrorist.

  • Jed Sant Devi

    His name is Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis.

    Don’t you know that most of the names of the Federal Immigration employees who processed his paperwork and make the Yes decision for him all along the way sounded pretty much the same.

    • dmxinc

       It’s true.  Our “immigration” system is really Third Worlders giving other Third Worlders the right to stay in our country and become citizens.

      and its the  muslim dominated UN who decides which refugees will be allowed to emigrate to U.S…Muslim Refugees Yes,Christian Refugees No…By Pam Geller…

      Christians are in imminent danger across the world, and yet they are being refused refugee status, while Muslim refugee immigration goes on unimpeded.
      U.S. policy regarding refugee resettlement would shock most Americans if they only knew. The United Nations picks who gets to come to the U.S. as a refugee. The mandate of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is to determine which of the world’s huddled masses comes to the U.S. as humanitarian refugees. And predictably, this U.N. body is favoring Muslims. Christians from Muslim lands are being refused refugee status.

      This is occurring despite the fact that in their home countries, under the Shariah, Christians face persecution and many times certain death for their religious beliefs. At the same time, whole Muslim communities are entering the U.S. by the tens of thousands per month, despite the fact that in their home countries they face no religious persecution.
      This is no accident. We know that the U.N. is driven largely by its largest bloc of countries, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. The OIC is one of the largest intergovernmental organizations in the world. It is a religious and political organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization dedicated in its own words to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”
      It is horrifying but true that Afghan Christians are being refused refugee status by the U.N. and many Western nations, including Great Britain. The U.N. claims that Afghan Christians do not meet the criteria for refugee status that is stipulated in Statute 6B of the UNHCR, which requires refugees to have “a well founded fear of persecution by reason of his race, religion, nationality or political opinion.”
      Join Pamela Geller in her fight to battle jihadist initiatives in our local communities — read “Stop The Islamization Of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance”
      Is this why we expended incalcuable blood and treasure in Afghanistan? So that Christians would face persecution and slaughter? What was the objective? Shariah?
      UNHCR trends for 2006 indicated that worldwide there were more than 32.9 million “persons of concern,” including around 11 million who were designated as “refugees.” Most of these came from Somalia, Darfur in the Sudan, Ethiopia, Iraq, Pakistan and Myanmar – all Muslim countries except Myanmar and Ethiopia (which has a huge Muslim population). That means that many refugees from these countries are non-Muslims seeking to escape religious persecution. But they are just the ones being denied.
      The U.S. ranks third among the world’s nations in the number of refugees we host. Since 1976, millions of new citizens have entered the United States as legal humanitarian refugees, according to reports from the U.S. State Department. The large groups of Somalis that have recently come to the U.S. are certified as “humanitarian refugees” under our State Department rules. Whole Muslim communities are imported into the United States. When they get here, they are supported by social services provided by the Office of Refugee Resettlement of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The cities that receive these huge numbers of refugees are determined by Refugee Councils.

      Humanitarian refugees have literally won the proverbial lottery. Typically, they receive green cards as resident aliens within a year of arrival in the U.S. and are eligible to become full U.S. citizens within five years, unless they violate our immigration laws, commit a felony or are deported. In the process, they are provided with cash stipends and social services assistance from federal, state, NGOs and voluntary agency contractors.
      But this lottery is not open to non-Muslim refugees. Back in October 2008, Muslim U.N. employees were “discouraging” applications for resettlement from the desperate Christian Iraqis. The Christian Iraqi population has since been decimated: Over half of the pre-war Christian population of Iraq has now fled the country.
      By buying into the argument that Islam is a religion of peace and ignoring the penalties for apostasy, we are sentencing thousands of Christians to martyrdom and forcing others to live in the shadows in dire poverty.
      We need to demand that our government provide protection and asylum for Christian refugees and converts from Islam to Christianity who are threatened under Islam’s death penalty for apostates.

      • Then Geller needs to go after her own tribesmen. They are at the center of trying to destroy Christianity by fair or foul means.

        • razorrare

          I agree that its Gellers tribesmen that are responsible for opening up the floodgates to muslim European immigration as well as in the  U.S…at the same time i appreciate Gellers work in trying to stop muslim immigration in the U.S.I would of never known had it not been for this article of hers that it is the UN who chooses for us what refugees will be allowed to emigrate to U.S.I give her credit when it is due and will be critical when it is due…same for anyone else regardless if they speak for White interest  or not.That includes everyone.

            I read that article a few days ago…i am an avid listener to Political Cesspool…i especially like hearing Keith Alexander…the more i hear him the more i appreciate him…i also read the comment section to political cesspool so i am aware in that sense that you are a contributor…never miss a saturday  night! Great radio show…simply the best…

            in the Amren article at top dated Oct 12(Is Catastrophe Inevitable) and in the article below dated Oct 15(Black Anger in Chicago at Obama…) i addressed that story and gave a link to its feedburner sight where you can listen anytime to the previous radio shows of the political cesspool…last saturday in radio show hour 2 that was the subject of discussion…if you havent listened to it  then do so…

            The person who wrote that article  is none other than Ted Pike, who i admire & respect very much…you can read the original article by Ted Pike here…


            Now….like i stated earlier,i have no problem being critical to my heroes,such as Ted Pike…He has done great works on Jewish power & Influence and for years has taken on the Hate Crime laws in the interest of  all  White Americans…a very courageous  person who i have much respect for…but he is not perfect…no one is… within that same article written by Ted Pike he states…

            “Muslims are justified in their outrage against Geller’s depiction of them as “savage” versus “civilized” Israelis.The historical truth is that “civilized” nations  have a sordid record of inhumane treatment toward “savage” peoples they have encounted.Remember what our “civilized” forefathers did to the native american “savages” or what the Dutch Boers did to the South african blacks or the Australians to the aborigines?This is precisely what the “civilized” Israeli’s did and still do,toward the displacement and relentlessly oppressed palestinians”…

            now,am i to disregard nor have gratitude for what Ted Pike states in this article and his other works because of what he has stated in this one paragraph…and i am specifically speaking to his written thought that expresses  disrespect for our forefathers as being less than “civilized” compared to the native american indians…if your answer is yes than you should disregard the entire article…I will not.

  • AB7

    So how much did it cost to find this piece of garbage Muslim, and then deal with him undercover until they gathered enough evidence to convict? Multiply that by thousands as more and more Muslims are allowed in America. Now you understand why countries with large Muslim populations are so decrepit. Even in the years before you are Islamized, while the indigenous infidels are still fighting to try to retain their identity, they waste their time and resources trying to keep the Muslims at bay. Islam has no place in the West. America will not survive with Islam within our borders.

    • Let’s also deport the people so instrumental in creating the US’s pro-immigration, anti-American-citizen, celebrate-diversity policy. The Muzzies wouldn’t have been able to invade if they didn’t have “friends” on the inside stupidly working for their benefit.

  • Let’s see, the feds gave him the van, the target, the cellphone and the phony explosives (bet they were Hollywood-relaistic) and probably got on Yahoo maps to give him the directions. How dare this reporter get my hopes up with that headline. If a Fed Reserve bank blew into a million pieces, millions of  (White) Americans would celebrate with the adding of chocolate to milk.

    • blight14

       That was my first thought….hopefully while all of the big wigs were in there planning QE23……….

      • You know, It’ s a big leap, to go from being a patriotic American, waving your flag and paying your taxes, to relaizing the truth– that our elected and unelected officials are simply a bunch of thugs and gangsters. A bunch of pimps. People talked about Joe Biden in his debate; let me just throw this out there– the man is insane. He is a card-carrying loon. Obama is simply a suit. The people who really run this country could never get elected in a fair election, so they picked a half-white/half black suit who could read a teleprompter well, and ran with him. He is a moron. No one wants to believe that their president and vice president are a moron and a loon, so they stick their fingers in their ears and rock back and forth like babies. That’s the American public. The creatures who rule this country aren’t going to go peacefully– we can’t ask them nicely to leave and give up power.

  • MekongDelta69

    Don’t worry about this. This is just part of NoBama’s Muslim Outreach Program to the Religion Of Pieces.

  • JohnEngelman

    Muslim immigrants have lower crime rates that blacks or Hispanics, but when one or several of them are successful in an act of terrorism the results are far more destructive than when a black or Hispanic male engages in a violent street crime. 

    • AB7

      Are you suggesting that it is acceptable that there are in fact Muslim immigrants? Even if they committed ZERO crimes, the destructive nature of the religion they follow will in the long run result in far more cost and destruction to America than anything that blacks or Hispanics could even dream of. The so-called “good” Muslims are merely the water that the true Muslims, the terrorists, swim in. Take away the water and the problem goes away.

      • JohnEngelman

        No. What I meant is t hat the few dangerous Muslim immigrants rule out any good the many safe ones may bring with them. 
        I am not sure I would favor a blanket prohibition of all Muslim immigration, but I am in favor of race profiling young Muslim men for the possibility of terrorism. 

        • AB7

          Because their RELIGION literally allows them to lie, there is no way to determine which Muslim is a threat. They could swear on a stack of Korans this or that and it is utterly meaningless. And since their religion allows it, they can lie with a totally free conscience, probably wouldn’t even show up on an electric lie detector. In the West, one of the core concepts is quote unquote “lying.” That is, there is agreement to the concept, even if people disagree who is lying. So even if an Atheist, or Satanist goes to court, they and everyone else agree that they should not lie. So while some lie, they know it is quote unquote “wrong.” Muslims don’t play by these rules. That negates any possibility that Islam can be integrated into the West. Too much of our system involves transactions between parties that requires some agreement on some level that lying about what it going on in that transaction is wrong. This is why societies controlled by Islam are so decrepit, no one can actually trust anyone, not even their own mother.

          • Judaism also allows Jews to lie to non-Jews and also doesn’t play by “the rules.” It can never really be part of the West. May we deport them after the Muslims?

          • anarchyst

            The talmud also allows those of the “tribe” to lie, cheat, steal and murder those who are not of the “tribe”.
            P.S. this will probably get deleted  🙂

        • bluffcreek1967

          Not me. I WOULD favor a blanket prohibition of ALL Muslim immigration. Muslims have proven to the world that they are violent, contentious with other religions and cultures, and they will seek to politically and socially dominate any place they set foot.

  • Puggg


    This Muslim wanted to destroy the New York Fed (supposedly) in order to destroy America.  The New York Fed was doing  a good enough job on its own doing that, it’s called Quantitative Easing.

    • AB7

      And to add to the irony, that is due largely to the billions of dollars wasted since 9/11 trying to protect America from Islam, while simultaneously allowing it to spread within our borders, and on top of that, trying to build democracies in lands already fallen to Islam, an impossible task that no amount of money, time or resources could accomplish, without first dealing with the root cause of the problems which is Islam.

  • Puggg

    I’m just reserving judgment, that’s all. All I know is that when the Feds say that “we’re” conspiring, and I’m suing “we” loosely, that we’re not really conspiring. Remember the Hutaree.

  • CourtneyfromAlabama

    This movement is full of Muslim apologists which I find disturbing. I agree that we shouldn’t be meddling in their countries’ affairs, but that doesn’t mean these people are as civilized as whites, or that they behave as immigrants.

    • We should also recognize as enemies Americans who are pro-immigration. It’s become clear that we don’t have the resources to take care of our next generation, and yet Saul, Chaim, Dov and Manny want to destroy European America by flooding the country with countless Nassirs, Mfume’s, Abdul’s, Pedro’s and Rajiv’s.

  • I wouldn’t mind the federal reserve getting blown up if no one was killed. The federal reserve has been instrumental in harming the U.S. economy for almost a century. 

  • JohnEngelman

    Effective law enforcement is a better way to prevent Islamic terrorist attacks than invading and occupying Islamic countries and trying to export our governmental system on them. 
    A single informer could have prevented 9/11. 

    • Bantu Education

      Never mind informers, the most simplistic profiling would have prevented 9/11.    I watched a documentary recently (maybe shown in the US before but was new to me) in which one of the check-in staff  admitted he thought the hijackers “looked just like terrorists” but then decided to himself “its not nice to think like that”, and so let them pass.   Another check-in guy also admitted much the same thoughts.  

  • puffdaddy

    It was a sting operation, so it could be a thought crime – but let’s all remember how dumb this idea is, as if getting rid of the Fed would be a tragedy! Of course, loss of life would be a tragedy, and it always is. But getting rid of the fed? 

  • libertarian1234

    “Beforehand, the Bangladeshi said “We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom.”

    Boy, did he make a liar out of himself.,

    He stopped when he attained jaildom.

    • AB7

      He said WE, so no, jailing him did not stop it, merely delayed it. The only way to stop it is to keep all Muslims out of the West. We will not be able to afford all of the continued security necessary to deal with the presence of Islam within our borders.

      And anyone naive enough to say, “Well boo hoo, I have freedom of speech, so I am free to say whatever I want. blah blah blah.” Well bully for you, because that will only work for you so long as you can afford 24/7 security from Muslims, should you “choose” to speak out about Muhammad. Without said security they will just kill you at which time, too bad for you, you lose your so-called freedom of speech.

  • As others have pointed out, he would have been doing us a favor by destroying the Federal Reserve. Perhaps the government encouraged him to target the Federal Reserve as a roundabout way of making Americans believe that the Federal Reserve is essential for America.


    •  That is what I was thinking.  The government has done this a lot with false flag operations that in the end manipulate our current laws and install false fear into the citizens.  Just a couple of weeks ago, the local university near where I live had a bomb threat called in.  What’s funny that the FBI was here investigating but there was no news if they caught who called it in.  Weird with today’s technology and the governments ability to spy on anyone, you would think they would have the name of the perpetrator. 

    • Puggg

      Or to serve to impugn the motives of white people who are against the Fed and want it repealed.

  • Oh, since the Fed has been able to rape Americans to the tune of several trillions of dollars through Ponzi schemes, quantitative easing and other thievery, I don’t worry to much about how happy they are. We put people in jail for life with the 3-strikes law, and one fellow got put away for stealing a single strawberry on his 3rd strike. You can go to jail for stealing someone’s shoes– what should the penalty be for people who steal trillions, and destroy entire economies/civilzations in the process? Yeah, I don’t think it’s possible to be too extreme in this case. Jail is good for a start. I don’t believe in executing people without a fair trial.

  • This guy seems to have been goaded and set up by the U.S. government – and at what cost to taxpayers? unbelievable!

    • AB7

      Crazy too how Americans were able to invent the religion of Islam which requires Muslims to engage in permanent war with non-Muslims! Man, those American are amazing!

  • SLCain

    Exactly.  These FBI sting operations are to counter-terrorism what the TSA’s gestapo-circus is to airport security: an elaborate sham – make-work for government flunkies.

    One should remember that the FBI was molded by it’s long-time director, J. Edgar Hoover, an authoritarian deviant, who ignored the law whenever it suited him, and who was far more concerned with protecting the FBI’s image than with actually reducing crime.

    The FBI of today continues this proud tradition.  This is the FBI – so proud of it’s profiling – that profiled the Unabomber to be a blue-collar worker.  This is the FBI that murdered Vicki Weaver.  This is the FBI that promoted Robert Hanssen for twenty years, while all the while he was providing secrets to the Russians.  They’re like the Keystone cops, only equipped with semi-automatic weapons and the latest surveillance gear instead of billy-clubs.

  • Puggg

    Suspect was in country legally on a student visa, according to FNC.

  • ATBOTL I usually agree with your comments, but I think you are mistaken here.

    The Feds are rolling up many potential ‘lone wolves’ with these entrapments.  Yes technically entrapment is wrong/ illegal, but as long as the majority of those arrested are Brown Muslims or other Colored Radicals then I am fine with it.  

  • IstvanIN

     How is the US supposed to stop the UK, Sweden and France from going muslim when the British, Swedes and French can not stop it?  We can not stop the US from going Mexican for pity sakes!

  • AB7

    If you are sane enough to know Islam can’t be allowed in America then you should be sane enough to digest the following facts. Israel is not the problem, our support of Israel is not the problem, the problem is the Koran, the Hadith, and the example of Muhammad. When you bring up Israel it makes you sound like someone who is utterly clueless about Islam. Islam hates you, to say a level 8. Your country’s support of Israel maybe increases that to about a 9. If you spoke the truth about Muhammad in public that would get you a 10.

    Sorry, but this smells like a typical FBI setup.  It has their MO all over it.  And, no, I’m not a sympathizer with Islam; I’m a Catholic.  But that doesn’t stop me from getting upset when innocent people are being killed or “set up”.
