in saying that “it’s already enough that you don’t worship Allah, so . . . that’s a reason for you to die,” this jihadist confirms that Islamic hardliners don’t view non-Muslims as innocent — thus rendering meaningless the condemnations of attacks on “innocent people” that have been issued by Islamic advocacy groups with unsavory ties to jihad terror.

They were the hate-filled, homegrown terrorists next door — ready to cut your head off if they got the chance.
“They only fear you when you have a gun and when you, when you start killing them and when you take their head, and you go like this, and you behead it on camera,” hissed terrorist wannabe Mohamed Alessa, 20, of North Bergen, NJ, during an undercover operation in 2009, a federal complaint unsealed yesterday revealed.
“My soul cannot rest until I shed blood.”
Alessa and Carlos Eduardo Almonte, 24, of Elmwood Park, NJ, were busted at JFK Airport on Saturday night, trying to leave the country on separate flights for Cairo, allegedly en route to Somalia for training to kill Americans overseas — and back at home….
“We’ll start killing here, if I can’t do it over there,” Alessa, the son of Palestinian-Jordanian immigrants, said, according to the complaint.
“Freaking Major-Nidal-shaved-face-Palestinian-crazy guy, he’s not better than me,” Alessa allegedly said, referring to Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, the shrink who gunned down 13 fellow soldiers and injured scores more at Fort Hood in Texas.
“I’ll do twice what he did. I wanna, like, be the world’s known terrorist.”
Not to be outdone, Almonte — a native of the Dominican Republic who had converted to Islam and started calling himself Omar — allegedly said he wanted to send Americans home “in caskets.”
“Any Muslim that gets . . . even a 10 percent out of 100 chance of [waging jihad] should risk it . . . because [it’s] better than sitting back here and working like a dog . . . and being somebody’s puppy,” Almonte seethed, according to the complaint.
Almonte also allegedly boasted, “I’m gonna get a gun. I’m the type of person to use it anytime . . . I’ll have more bodies on it than . . . the hairs on my beard. You know what I’m saying? It’s already enough that you don’t worship Allah, so . . . that’s a reason for you to die.”…
“Once we got to high school, [Alessa] got very shady. He grew out his beard and started dressing differently. He got picked on because of the way he looked, and he had to quit and go to a prep school,” said Daniel Forbes, 20, a former classmate in North Bergen.
“He always isolated himself from being American.”
Almonte and Alessa started hanging out with a group [of] troubled Arabic kids who called themselves the Arabian Knights, neighbors said….
