Four homegrown Muslim terrorists on a mission from hell were arrested last night as they planted what they thought were high-powered plastic explosives at two Bronx synagogues, authorities said.
The men were also allegedly plotting to use a Stinger missile to shoot a military plane out of the sky in upstate New York immediately after the bombings.
"This is America's finest hour. The best resources of the Police Department, Homeland Security and the FBI kept us safe," said Jonathan Rosenblatt, a rabbi at the targeted Riverdale Jewish Center.
He noted that some of the members had survived the Holocaust. "To see a synagogue burning would have been painful," he said.
The jihadist wannabes -- all from Newburgh, NY -- began their unholy mission last night at around 9 p.m. at the Riverdale Temple on Independence Avenue, authorities said.
They planted what they thought were explosives in a parked car outside the house of worship.
One acted as a lookout, while the other three allegedly drove up the block to the Riverdale Jewish Center and planted two more bags of "explosives" in cars.
Unbeknownst to them, their explosives were duds -- supplied by authorities who had been monitoring their plan for more than a year.
Cops swooped in and arrested them right after they allegedly planted the last of the phony bombs.
One of the suspects, James Cromitie, a k a Abdul Rahman, bragged that blowing up the synagogues would be a "piece of cake," the feds said.
"I hate those motherf - - -ers, those f - - -ing Jewish bastards . . . I would like to get a synagogue," Cromitie told an informant, according to a criminal complaint.
The alleged terrorists' hatred also included the US military.
After bombing the temples, the men planned to split up and head to the New York Air National Guard Base at Stewart Airport in their hometown and shoot down a plane with a weapon they believed was a Stinger surface-to-air guided missile, sources said.
"They [the United States military] are killing Muslim brothers and sisters in Muslim countries, so if we kill them here [in the United States] with IEDs [improvised explosive devices] and Stingers, it is equal," one of the busted men, Onta Williams, allegedly told the informant.
Also arrested was David "Daoud" Williams and Laguerre Payen, a k a Amin or Almondo.
The arrests culminated a yearlong investigation by the FBI and NYPD joint terrorist task force, which monitored the four men with wiretaps, surveillance and the help of the undercover
