Understanding the Threat, by Johhn Guandolo, September 6, 2018:
The son of a Boston police captain Alexander Ciccolo, who also went by the name Ali Al Amriki was sentenced yesterday to 20 years in prison. Alexander Ciccolo father turned him to the FBI. According to the Federal governments Affidavit and Memorandum, Alexander Ciccolo was charged with possessing a firearm after previously being convicted of a crime punishable by a term of imprisonment exceeding one year in violation of 18 U.S.C. ‘ 922(g)(1), which offense constitutes a felony that involves the possession of a firearm. See 18 U.S.C. ‘ 3142(f)(1)(E). Alexander Ciccolo possessed four firearms which he ordered, including two rifles with large ammunition magazines, to use during his plan to kill in the name of Allah.
Before his arrest told a friend that he believed the “faith is under attack” and that he is “not afraid to die for the cause.” Alexander Ciccolo Facebook profile, under the name “Ali Al Amriki,” contained information indicating he wanted to commit “martyrdom for the sake of Islam”.
On October 27, 2014, Ali Al Amriki’s (Alexander Ciccolo) Facebook page posted an image that appeared to be a dead American soldier that included the following statement by Ali Al Amriki, “Thank you Islamic State! Now we won’t have to deal with these kafir back in America.” “Kafir” means “non-believers” of Islam. The information posted on the Facebook page also showed that Alexander Ciccolo wanted to fight for the Islamic State.
On June 24, 2015, Alexander Ciccolo met with a FBI informant and discussed plans to travel to another state to conduct terrorist attacks on civilians, members of the U.S. military and law enforcement personnel. Ciccolo planned on attacking two different bars and a police station, and gave the locations. Ciccolo explained he planned to use improvised explosive devices during the attack to include pressure cooker bombs. During another conversation with the informant Ciccolo celebrated the June 26, 2015 Jihadi attack at a beachside resort in Tunisia in which one person used firearms and grenades to kill 38 people. Alexander Ciccolo expressed he needed four AK-47s, two sniper rifles, four handguns, and gelignite (a type of dynamite). Alexander Ciccolo also stated that he wanted to conduct an attack at a State University using assault rifles and explosives with the attack concentrated in the college dorms and cafeteria while broadcasting live on the internet.
Alexander Ciccolo told the informant he planned to rob a gun store to obtain the weapons and travel out of state to purchase fireworks in order to obtain the black powder needed for the attacks and planned to purchase pressure cookers to use as improvised explosive devices.
On June 30, 2015 Alexander Ciccolo met with the FBI informant and explained that he had changed his plans from targeting a police station to targeting a university because there were many more people at the university and a “Very sinful and has a crowd.” Alexander Ciccolo said he wanted to protect Muslim students, saying they would be permitted to help, sit tight or leave. Ciccolo said that he wanted to do it before Ramadan was over, and no later than July 31, 2015. Ciccolo told the FBI informant “We win or we die.” A few days later after Alexander Ciccolo bought a pressure cooker he intended to use to build an explosive devise he sent a message, “Allahu Akbar!!!… I got the pressure cookers today. Alhamdulillah.”
On July 4, 2015 Alexander Ciccolo was arrested, waived his Miranda rights and spoke to FBI Special Agents. He refused to talk about the guns with which he was arrested but he reaffirmed his support for the Islamic state. When arrested the first person he was able to attack was a nurse who he stabbed multiple times in the head with a pen.
On September 5, 2018 Alexander Ciccolo, (Ali Al Amriki), was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mark G. Mastroianni to 20 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised release after pleading guilty to one count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, one count of attempting to use weapons of mass destruction, one count of being a convicted person in possession of firearms, and one count of assaulting a nurse during a jail intake process by use of a deadly weapon causing bodily injury.
We shouldn’t be surprised. Alexander Ciccolo converted to Islam and is doing what the enemy doctrine mandates. 100% of Islamic sharia mandates warfare against non-muslims until the world is under Islamic rule (sharia). This is why he had a plan for the muslim students to be given a chance to fight or run to safety. The fact of Alexander Ciccolo a police captains son committing war against non-muslims shouldn’t surprise anyone. In sharia (which all Muslims must follow) it comes from the Koran and the example of what Mohammad said and did (sunnah).
“Fight and slay the unbeliever wherever you find them, capture and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush (strategem of war).” (Koran 9:5)
Mohammad said: “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify there is no god but Allah and Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah.” (Hadith reported by Bukhari and Muslim)
There is no such thing as a “different kind” of Sharia which does not mandate jihad until the world is under the rule of the sharia, and there is no other legal definition of “Jihad” in Sharia other than “warfare against non-Muslims.” Jihad is warfare against non-muslims. A police Captain (who was one of the first to respond during the 2013 Boston bombing) has a son who tried to commit Jihad during Ramadan at a very public place to create mass casualties. Let that sink in.
This is Islam. This is Sharia. Sharia kills. The war is here.
