A New Jersey man allegedly inspired by ISIS and al Qaeda to plant bombs in New York City and New Jersey was sentenced to life in prison on Tuesday — after complaining that he was being discriminated against for being Muslim. "I don't harbor hate toward anyone," Ahmed Khan Rahimi said during a rambling statement in which he defended his family and criticized the FBI. Rahimi, 30, said nothing about the victims of the September 2016 blast in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood that injured 30 people — which prosecutors noted in asking for the maximum sentence. Rahimi was convicted in October of eight federal counts stemming from two explosive devices: the one that detonated in a dumpster in Chelsea, and another left blocks away that didn't go off.
