New York Police busted twin brothers from the Bronx who were ready to explode several devices in the nation’s biggest city. They had stockpiled explosive materials and had already crafted several bombs inside their home, all with the help from local high school students.

The two 27-year-olds, Christian Toro, a former teacher at Harlem Prep, and his brother, Tyler Toro, had been busy creating explosive devices inside their Pelham Parkway apartment since October of 2017. They used gunpowder from fireworks as the basis of their bomb-making, according to the official complaint filed against them.

The investigation, which was conducted in coordination with the FBI, also found a “diary” containing various disturbing, handwritten notes:



There was also “a yellow backpack in a living area of the apartment, which contained, among other things, a purple index card with handwriting that reads, ‘UNDER THE FULL MOON THE SMALL ONES WILL KNOW TERROR.”

According to the official complaint, Mr. Christian Toro had offered some kids in his class to pay them $50 per hour to “break apart fireworks and store the powder that came out of the fireworks in containers.”

“Based on the interviews, it appears that the students visited the apartment between in or around October 2017 and in or around early January 2018.”

Here is the problem in a nutshell.

According to experts for every 1000 Muslims there about 17% are strict old school radicalized Muslims.

Of that 1000, experts tell us about 3% will actually seriously consider undertaking terrorism acts and will draw help, support, assistance and funds from the 17%.

We have about 3.4 Million Muslims in the USA now. if just 3% are radicalized . That means 102, 000 potential terrorists are already here in the USA.
