New York mosque targeted in Klansman terror plot

New York mosque targeted in KKK terror plot

[New Yorkers, Glendon Scott Crawford (L) and Eric J Feight are facing terrorism charges for allegedly planning to build a mobile X-ray weapon to kill Muslims]

A Ku Klux Klansman and Tea Party activist from New York unknowingly took undercover FBI agents along for the ride as he scouted out an Albany mosque and Islamic center in Schenectady as “viable target” locations in an elaborate terror plot to eradicate Muslims with X-ray radiation.


Glendon Crawford, 49, from Saratoga County was arrested on  June 18 after he took the agents to a garage in Schaghticoke where he allegedly assembled


remote-controlled ray-gun-style device that would shoot lethal doses of radiation at their targets. But before he could attach a remote control to trigger it, agents arrested him, prosecutors said.


President Barak Obama was also on Crawford’s hit-list because he had let Muslims into the US.


On the day after the Boston Marathon bombing in April he allegedly sent a text message saying: “Obama’s policies caused this.”
“He did everything except one thing and that is to flip the switch,” Assistant US Attorney Stephen Green said at a detention hearing for Crawford and his co-defendant, Eric Feight, 54, from Columbia County town of Stockport.


Green said Crawford did not attempt to use the weapon at that time because he feared radiation. Crawford was arrested at the location, Feight later at his home.


US Magistrate Judge Christian Hummel said he could not find a more compelling example of defendants who pose a possible danger to the community.


Crawford and Feight were arraigned in US District Court on allegations they conspired to build the device Crawford described as “Hiroshima on a light switch” to kill Muslims who they described as “medical waste.”


Court papers allege Crawford approached two local Jewish groups in April 2012 hoping to “speak with a person who might be willing to help him with a type of technology that could be used by Israel to defeat its enemies, specifically, by killing Israel’s enemies while they slept.”


Instead, they called Albany police who, in turn, called in the FBI. A 14-month undercover terror investigation was under way with surveillance, wiretaps and agents posing as conspirators.


Prosecutors say Crawford brought at least two undercover agents to the Albany mosque. He then brought them to the Islamic center in Schenectady on before heading over to the garage in Schaghticoke.


Crawford’s alleged scouting of the locations surfaced at the detention hearing and was not included in a detailed affidavit released with the criminal complaint against Crawford and Feight.
