An ISIS-obsessed Muslim man, 32-year-old Ridon Kola (photo below), who threatened to kill cops at a Yonkers, New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade has been arrested and charged with making interstate threats ahead of the city’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, slated for Saturday.
Daily Mail Ridon Kola has spent months worshiping the Islamic State on social media. Kola messaged the Yonkers police department directly last week writing, “I will crucify Yonkers cops and their bosses all along McLean ave. It will be a horror scene..”
The charge carries a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison, and comes after Kola directly messaged the Yonkers police force’s social media accounts to detail his planned attack, the Yonkers Ledger reported.
The threats came over the course of several days, and were compounded by a series of troubling posts on the alleged domestic terrorist’s own social media. One such post, published days after Kola direct messaged the department to say that he would ‘crucify’ cops tasked with overseeing the procession, included an image of the suspect brandishing an ax, seemingly to make good on his initial threat.
Sent to the Yonkers Police Department on March 9, the message saw Kola threateningly insist that the street set to house the event will be a ‘horror scene’ come Saturday, before signing off with an Arabic phras, “Allahu Akbar” that means ‘Our God is greater.’
‘I will crucify Yonkers cops and their bosses all along McLean ave,’ wrote Kola in the correspondence, which was released by the Justice Department shortly after his arrest. ‘It will be a horror scene,’ the New York man continued, according to federal authorities. ‘Allahu Ekberr [sic].’ In another message sent that same day, Kola wrote: ‘First people to be crucified will be the Yonkers rats.’
While the message did not mention the parade directly, it did by proxy – with McLean being the street where the city’s event is set to be staged. The planned event is markedly smaller than its famed Manhattan counterpart held a few miles south, which features a procession of roughly 150,000 and is attended by roughly 2 million people. The Yonders parade was expected to attract 30,000.
Hours earlier, the US Attorney’s Office revealed they had arrested the Yonkers resident, while also detailing a series of since-deleted posts in which the suspect expressed support for the terror group, as well as a ‘war against non-Muslims.’
In one post cited by the feds, Kola showed support for fellow ISIS fanatic Sayfullo Saipov, 35, who was sentenced to life in prison this week for using a rented UHaul to plow into eight people on a New York City bike path in 2017.
‘May allah set you free my brother,’ Kola wrote in the post, which was penned on March 7, according to a criminal complaint aired by the attorney’s office.
The suspected terrorist added: ‘The real terrorists and thieves is the American i llum inati [sic]’
Other since nixed posts included Islamic artwork and imagery feds said coincide with those used by jihadist groups to express a desire for an all-Islamic world – one of the main tenets of the Islamic State.
The complaint further revealed that Kola had messaged Yonkers police’ social media with threats as early as 2021, with one message, written in Albanian, reading: ‘I am going to slaughter you little girls.’
Ignorantly, the Yonkers mayor, Mike Spano, tried to blame the terrorist’s threats on “mental issues.” Designated terrorist CAIR nodded in agreement.
Kopa has since been taken into federal custody, with agents reportedly storming his residence early Friday.

Shoot the man in the balls
Looks like MENTAL HEALTH issues.
Don’t they all? The #1 Muslim criminal “Get-out-of-Jail-Free” card.
I mean he does look mentally ill. Just look at his eyes.
If I saw that man walking in my neighborhood, I’d have to call the cops: “I see a strange man. He’s up to no good.”
All I see is hate in his eyes.

FBI busy in 2021 looking for domestic terrorists called “parents”
And locking them up.
And covering up for Biden
Albanians are not to be messed with. They are savage ‘A different breed’ absolute mad men, without a care in the world in England. Its not their home and they have utter contempt for all of us.
Im no harder than the man round the corner, ill fight. But i try my hardest not too if hes Albanian.
They come back around. No such thing as fair in Albania it seems.
