AJC Praises Law Enforcement for Thwarting Terror Attack at JFK Airport

The American Jewish Committee praised law enforcement today for preventing a large terrorist attack at John F. Kennedy airport in New York. Law enforcement announced that they have arrested one man, and are seeking the extradition of three from Trinidad.

"This plot to cause a major catastrophe at JFK airport is a vivid reminder that utmost vigilance is necessary against ongoing threats from Islamist radicals," said AJC Executive Director David A. Harris. "For all in New York and across the United States, complacency is not possible in the post-9/11 era."

The four, who allegedly have ties to a radical Muslim group in Trinidad, and include a former member of the Guyana Parliament, reportedly were planning for more than a year to bomb fuel tanks at JFK airport and underground fuel lines in adjacent residential neighborhoods.

The arrests come shortly after law enforcement prevented a terrorist attack on Fort Dix in New Jersey.
