Police tackled an emotionally disturbed 30-year-old man waving around a Samurai sword in Apple’s flagship New York City location on Fifth Avenue Friday afternoon, authorities say. Video captured from inside the store posted to social media shows Hsu Chien sitting down on the stairs, waving the sword around his head and then dropping it onto the stair platform. He then gets up and starts walking down the stairs, holding the sword in both hands over his right shoulder.
“I have never in my life felt so terrified,” Nancy Birnbaum, who was at the store’s Genius Bar, said. “He pulled his sword out and everybody got back. I honestly thought that was it.”

Islam is the Ultimate Sleeper Cell
We don’t know whether Dzhokar Tsarneav and Tamerlan Tsarneav were aligned with any Muslim terrorist organization, but there is no reason that they had to be.
Most recent Muslim terrorist plots were carried out by “lone wolves”, individuals or small groups, who received their Islamist indoctrination and explosives training through the Islamic internet of Jihadist social media.
It may turn out that the Tsarneavs attended a terrorist training camp at some point in the past. But it may be just as likely that they never did. Terrorist training camps still exist, but they are becoming relics when it comes to the new type of pop up terrorism favored by Jihadists abroad.
The ideal Muslim terrorist has never attended a training camp or met with a terrorist chieftain. He has never even traveled to a suspect country. His indoctrination comes from Jihadist videos of Islamic sermons and battle scenes from the front lines of Islamic terror. His bomb making knowledge comes from Jihadist training materials scattered around social media which tell him to make bombs and how to use them to the most devastating effect.
