Jihad i Karibien

On June 2, 2007, U.S. federal authorities announced
that they broke up an alleged terrorist plot by four
Afro-Caribbean converts to Islam and radical
Muslims from Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago,
to blow up fuel tanks and pipelines at John F.
Kennedy International Airport. The plot was
in its planning stages, and had been followed
by the FBI for 16 months. Despite not being
close to completion, the intention of the plotters
was to create maximum havoc and destruction,
hoping that the fuel dumps would then destroy
terminal buildings and aircrafts on the ground.
The exposure of this plot has brought to the fore
the issue of the domestic threat posed by radical
Muslims from the Caribbean and, thus, by radical
Islam acquiring a foothold in the Caribbean basin,
a geographical area which is located in
the US backyard.
