Faisal Shahzad, who attempted to detonate a car bomb in New York's Times Square on a crowded Saturday night, was sentenced to life in federal prison today.
Shahzad said "Allahu Akbar" after hearing the sentence, and said he would "sacrifice a thousand lives for Allah."
"War with Muslims has just begun," said Shahzad.
Shahzad also said he was happy with "the deal" God had given him. "We have laws made by Allah. We don't need laws made by humans."
In handing down the sentence, Judge Mirian Cedarbaum said, "You are capable of education, and I do hope you spend time in prison thinking about whether the Koran gives you the right to kill innocent people."
"It's only right that Shahzad forfeit his freedom for life for having tried to forfeit the lives of New Yorkers forever," said New York police commissioner Ray Kelly.
