Chicago thinks it's so fancy with its cartoon-hating Youtube terrorists. Pfft. New Yorkers don't have time for penny ante stuff like that. Nothing less than providing arms to Hezbollah will do for us!
Patrick Nayyar and Conrad Stanisclaus Mulholland, a couple of middle-aged would-be entrepreneurs, agreed to sell "guns, ammunition, vehicles, bulletproof vests and night-vision goggles" to an interested religious organization based in Lebanon called The Party of God.
Mulholland is currently absconding (possibly in his home country Britain) but Queens native Nayyar is in custody and his lawyer thinks the FBI needs to look into the concept of "real terrorism". You see, back in 2007, Nayyar heroically battled a devilish wife-stealing cabdriver:
came to the aid of a Queens couple after an angry cabbie ordered the man out of his cab and sped off with the passenger's screaming wife. The ordeal ended when Patrick Nayyar, 43, used his SUV to cut off the cab.
"I don't know what this guy's intentions were," said Nayyar, who pulled the daring move near 57th Ave. in Elmhurst. "But he could have done anything to her."
Does that sound like the actions of a man who could sell arms to an FBI informant posing as a representative for Hezbollah? A cabbie-battler like him? Never! Except for the part where it totally looks as though he did.
