NYC MUSLIM terror suspect, Adis Medunjamin, shouted “Allau Akbar” and “We love death more than you love life” to the 911 operator before he tried to commit a suicide/ homicide by crashing his car at 90mph into another one.
Bosnian-born US citizen Adis Medunjanin, 25, called 911 as he sped erratically away from federal agents through Queens streets at up to 90 mph.
“We love death more than you love life!” he exclaimed in Arabic. Medunjanin also praised Allah moments before he rear-ended another vehicle, sources said. Police are investigating the bizarre crash as a possible suicide attempt by the frantic Medunjanin, in the wake of a federal raid on his Queens home.
Medunjanin, 24, a recent graduate of Queens College, and Zarein Ahmedzay, 25, had been under intense surveillance in their homes since September when their former Flushing HS classmate Najibullah Zazi (all 3 went to “Terror High in Flushing“) was arrested on suspicion of plotting a new 9/11-style attack in New York.
Back in 2010, neighbors said seven federal agents showed up at Medunjanin’s two-bedroom co-op where he lives with his parents. “They wanted his passport to document his travels,” a law enforcement source said of the raid by the FBI-NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force.
About an hour after the feds confiscated the passport and left, the Bosnian-born Medunjanin got into his car and was tailed by agents. He accelerated to get away from them until the crash. Then he fled on foot until he was chased down by members of the task force and hospitalized for minor injuries, police said.
He initially was charged only with fleeing the scene of an accident, but later Adis Medunjanin, 25 was charged with providing material support to terrorism when arraigned in Brooklyn federal court. His lawyer, Robert Gottlieb, fumed about a lack of information. Medunjanin, also known as “Mohammed,” was arrested by FBI agents on Friday, along with taxi driver Zarein Ahmedzay. Both are alleged associates of Najibullah Zazi, a Denver airport shuttle driver indicted last year for planning a bombing spree around the anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
