Update from Pamela Hall (Red Squirrel) – August 28, 2014. Have to re-post pictures from the entire proest and march as WebShots went out of business…. That’s if I can find the files)
Wikipedia info on Almonte here>>
” .. the judge sentenced Alessa, now 23, to 22 years in prison and a lifetime afterward of supervised release — and Almonte, now 27, to 20 years and the same lifetime of supervision. Each man had come onto the radar of federal authorities in 2006. And in 2009, the NYPD officer had begun meeting with and extensively taping them. Then, in June 2010, they were each arrested in the moments before they were set to jump onto airplanes at John F. Kennedy International Airport bound for Egypt, a key step, say federal authorities, in their ultimate plan to reach Somalia”

UPDATE: March 3, 2011 Fox News
“Two New Jersey men have pleaded guilty to charges that they tried to join an Al Qaeda-affiliated group overseas.
Mohamed Mahmood Alessa and Carlos Eduardo Almonte entered into a packaged plea deal in a Newark federal courtroom Thursday.
They admitted to conspiring to kill, maim and kidnap persons outside the United States by trying to join al-Shabab, a designated terrorist organization.
“The defendants planned and trained for a mission that began in their New Jersey neighborhoods and would end with the murder of innocent civilians.” (They wanted to kill Americans)
Almonte, 24, of Elmwood Park, is a naturalized citizen who was born in the Dominican Republic. Both are Muslim.
From TSM: We never found out who Carlos’ friend was (in the ‘Death To all Juice’ picture I took in December of 2008) though at times I think he might be a clean-cut Mahmood Alessa. But,we do know the other guy is Carlos Almonte and since some think my picture was photo-shopped (just taken with a lousy camera) I compiled some pics and video from that day in front the Israeli Mission. It shows Carlos hanging with the vile HATE groups: the Islamic Thinkers/Revolution Muslims. And eventually holding that infamous poster. “Death to all Juice” (Death to all Americans !)
More from Fox News: “The New Jersey case is one of the first to tie both Anwar al-Awlaki, an American cleric and Al Qaeda operative in Yemen, and Omar Hammami, an American-born member of al-Shabab, to a single plot. Prosecutors allege that Alessa and Almonte were inspired while listening to videos from both Awlaki and al-Shabab…. a new generation of digital jihadists, who take their inspiration from the web and do not have direct personal contact with clerics like Awlaki.” And HATE groups like the Islamic Thinkers Society…your are known by the friends you keep…

UPDATE JUNE 11, 2010
VigilantSquirrelBrigade.blogspot.com has been made aware that the “Death to All Juice” photo is actually Carlos Almonte of Bergen, NJ. One of the terror suspects recently arrested.“Who knew that someone advocating genocide would turn out to be a terrorist” (sarc intended).
What follows is the original report in Dec 2008
One JUICY NUT-JOB! (the picture Of the “Juice Jihadi” taken 0n 12-28-08 by Red Squirrel (aka Pamela Hall) of Vigilant Squirrel Brigade)
An update on our ‘Hosts’ for these marches (as to be expected): Al-Awda NY: Palestine Right to Return Coalition, Arab Muslim American Federation, International Action Center, Brooklyn for Peace, USPCN-NY and the General Union of Palestinian Students, Adalah-NY as well as The ANSWER Coalition, Muslim American Society Freedom, Free Palestine Alliance, National Council of Arab Americans, and International Palestine Right to Return Coalition.
Always ready to spew their hatred for Israel, the rabid Leftists (International Action Center, Code Pinkos, Al-Adwa, Adalahs and Answer) hit the streets of New York, Sunday December 28, 2008 (at 2 PM) at 50 St and Fifth Avenue, with a crowd that also included “palestinians’ and the unfortunate Naturi Karta. There seemed to be an unending parade of muslim young men and women (many with children) Were they ALL pali’s? Guess we are ALL ‘fakestinians…if we ‘wannabe’…
(8-28-14 : More pictures and videos from the Israeli Protest were posted at The Squirrel Brigade but Webshots no longer exists. I have lots more pictures (if I can find the file) Meanwhile, these are screen shots from my video, with Carlos Almonte often in the back ground.)
Lots of NY city police (many more looking muslim each time there is such an event) and all are doing extra Sunday duty…over-time, right? Our tax-dollars at work! Cops standing on top of a truck, mounted police…extra officers standing all around…waiting… all ready to walk these anarchists and ‘palis’ over to the Israeli Consulate. Then, finally!… there was a lot of rushing around at approximately 3 PM with the usual self-promotion photographers that recorded their soc/commie/marxist/progressive actions for ‘posterity’.
The sidewalks of Fifth Avenue were blocked with over-flow so they started their march amid lots more instructions as they tried ever so hard to get the marchers into a single-file for the avenues( Second Avenue in particular was grid-locked with protesters) . Once we arrived at the Israeli Embassy, the Islamic Thinkers were waiting for the Fifth Avenue marchers
And now the police earned their dollars…co-ordinating two blocks of marchers from 44 to 42 streets. Pens opening and closing as they did a lot of crowd control. Not sure this merits too many ooo’s as the crowd was placed in narrow pens OFF the sidewalk for those two blocks so we’re not talking thousands…. Still, it was a large enough crowd to be unsettling.
There are many familiar faces in the videos and pictures and all calling for the destruction of Israel. Some people passing by look confused. Most just keep right on walking, but what should be of concern is that while these Anti-Israel protesters swarm our streets, we aren’t out there countering the lies and propaganda. WHAT are we going to do about this, America! The lies must be stopped!
Below is a slideshow of screen shot photos from the 2008 protest:
