NEW YORK.- The self-proclaimed terrorist Carlos Eduardo Almonte 24, arrested at John F. Kennedy Airport Saturday night together with  his accomplice Mohamed Mahmud Alessa, is a native of Santiago, Dominican Republic who arrived in the U.S. at the age of five and graduated high school with excellent grades in Elmwood, New Jersey.

After his arraignment in Newark Federal Court yesterday, where prosecutors revealed part of the plans designed by him and the Arab Muslim, the neighborhood was in denial and his father, Pedro Almonte, visibly shocked told reporters that the family is devastated and first to be astonished by the news.

His former classmates and residents of the exclusive neighbourhood also expressed outrage, affirming that the young alleged terrorist, is very intelligent, quiet person, and who practically went unnoticed in the area, because he didn’t have many friends.

The Dominican community in greater New York also is astonished with the news of the first arrest of a Dominican officially accused of terrorism in the U.S., country where he was raised and later swore allegiance to its flag, and to defend it.

I can't believe that people let themselves get brained washed this way... If this guy would have lived in DR, he probably would not have gotten mixed in with this type of crowd.

I read in the Spanish newspaper the family saying that they dont want to talk they just want to cry. I really feel sorry for this family. They will be going thru some tough time now. The other kid must had given him the tree of life to leave behind the promise of this great country.

It all start with home education how many times had you seen other people btw bad mouth this country. The kid probably heard his parents or a relative saying something against this country and as he got older his resentment grew and got influenced by a sinister person with agenda. It is just sad and ignorant when you see someone making a living here talking crap about this great country. All I can say is Loyalty start at home.

Reminds me of the Liberty City Seven from a few years ago.

We now both have underdeveloped and unsuccessful "terrorists" in the US. Welcome to the club Dominicans! Kiskeya is officially everywhere.

Yes General, I agree 100%. he should be stripped of his naturalized US citizenship (and he will) and deported but first a 50 year sentence, then the DR authorities can show us "how to deal with this thing".

If Dominican Authorities are allowed to handle this case, my opinion would be that water-boarding would be the least of the worries this criminal would have to face. A good in La Victoria would have him back to normal, drinking Presidente and dissing Muhamad

Chompiras

it will take more than a terrorist to blow up a yanikeke stand, and if they do, 100 more will pop out the next morning.

Nice religeous belief...i thought that your religion was about forgiveness...as you do weekly at confession?

What a pile of hypicritical crap....sin and have your sims forgiven. The catholic Church is not without it's continued issues....wars...greed...NO TAXES....false hopes.....bloodshed...and bullshit.

Lets get rid of religion...the cause of the world's issues.

I beleive its Mans missunderstanding of Gods word, thats the underlinning issue here.

All of Mans laws are based on Gods laws, its only when Man twist Gods word in his favor / belief is where the problems begin [history has taught Man nothing] history only repeating its self ?

All Religous Radicals believe that if "God is on our side" then his actions are justified therefore who [man] can be against us mentality.......even murder, historically all Religions are guilty of this.

Religion: Man's inspiration for Mans own taylor made belief system.

The real question is how does ONE / NATION defend it's self from such radical Jihad [holy war] madness with "Death to Infidels" ?

As I stated before........These radical's believe killing non-believers / sinners is a sure way to paradice, there real aganda is first defeating the armys who oppose them, once a Nation is defenceless its up for the taking.

Radicals pose a real threat TO ALL modern day lifestyles.

Ateo2010,
You paint your version of the perfect world with...."no religion=better world" just imagine Man can do one another in with no recouse of mans / Gods laws, if it fells good.....just do it mentality. Anarchy your idea of the perfect world solution to mans problems.
And to think most people when upset / anger hold back their fellings of evil due to the idea NO ONE, NOT ONE GETS TOTALLY AWAY WITH IT but under your world....no problem, your bold new world where good vs. evil with blurded lines.
