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, prosecutors and prison officials.

But, he added, “I have come to understand why there is such a big frustration between Muslims overseas and the American people.”
