Homegrown jihadis arrested in Texas

Once again, the “religion of peace” demonstrates its true colors — and please don’t give me the line of a few individuals perverting Islam. A few days ago, two Muslim men in Texas were arrested on jihad terror charges.

As reported by ABCnews.com, the two men were separately charged with terror-related offenses after federal agents said they planned to travel halfway around the world to engage in violent jihad. One of the men, a Bangladesh-born U.S. citizen named Rahatul Ashikim Khan, allegedly wanted to join al-Shabab, a Somalia-based terror group linked to al-Qaida. For the other, Michael Todd Wolfe from Houston, learning to fight in Syria was allegedly the goal.

Anyone who doesn’t believe we have a problem with homegrown jihadis in America is delusional.

According to charging documents, Wolfe’s wife met an undercover FBI agent in August 2013 and told the agent she and her husband wanted to “perform a violent form of jihad” outside of the United States. She said Wolfe “just wants to hop into Syria. He’s just ready to die for his deen [religion]. He’s ready to die for someone, for something,” court documents say.

Over several months, another undercover FBI agent met with Wolfe, and they discussed Wolfe’s plans for going overseas, according to the court documents. On Jan. 22, both undercover FBI agents met with Wolfe and his wife, and Wolfe “indicated that he had learned that al-Qaida in Syria was training brothers from other countries (foreign fighters) and then sending those fighters back from Syria to their home countries to conduct terror attacks,” the FBI says in court documents.

This is the larger concern about ISIS and its Islamic caliphate — just yesterday the head of the FBI acknowledged that some 100 Americans could be part of the ISIS army. What is even more egregious is this: the couple was planning to use some of their estimated $5,000 tax refund to pay for their travel, prosecutors say.

Khan became a U.S. citizen in 2002 and is a full-time student at University of Texas-Austin (a very liberal school), which is now on summer recess. According to charging documents in his case, in early 2011, Khan began communicating with an informant in an online chat room, which he used “as a platform to spot and assess potential recruits for committing violent jihad overseas.”

Khan introduced the informant to an unidentified co-conspirator, possibly in Florida — and we know an American from Florida detonated himself in a suicide bomb attack in Syria recently — who then attempted to recruit the informant to travel to Somalia to engage in jihad there, prosecutors say in court documents. The co-conspirator then introduced the informant to another person, also likely in Florida, who discussed how Khan could get to Somalia to join the terrorist group al-Shabab.

In June 2011, Khan told the informant that his brain “starts bleeding” when he sees weak “Bengalis” who have “no love for jihad” and “no love to shed blood,” authorities allege.

The arrests come a month after the Justice Department asked a special prosecutor in its National Security Division to help lead U.S. efforts aimed at stemming the flow of American fighters to the civil war in Syria.

This is the jihadist version of “coexist” and I believe somehow it is different from the bumper sticker slogan on those Prius cars. The time for political correctness is gone — when tolerance becomes a one-way street it leads to cultural suicide. It also allows the enemy to walk amongst us, masquerading as a religion and affording themselves benefits in order to kill us.

Well said, there should not be political correctness. Period. This country was built on different ideas and debating them. Everybody is offended for the slightest thing.

Funny. I live in Austin, am conservative and worked at UT Austin 5 years. I never knew it was a liberal school. I remember well when in 1979 a Iranian who was a former Shaw of Iran official made a speech at UT. The minute one middle eastern demonstrator stood up, the University had police swoop in the room and arrest a dozen of them. They stayed in jail for more than a week until Jimmy Carter’s State Department asked the university to let them go. They were all expelled from school. The next week a football player took a… Read more »

“Mahmoudberg” is the nickname for a terrorist compound discovered in Brazoria County Texas. This county is about 75 miles SW of Houston…….This is just one of the articles about that from this last February……I hope we can post links here: http://www.wnd.com/2014/02/texas-police-double-as-mahmoudbergs-militia/

Nice link thanks

SB_Smith

Many of my relatives live in Brazoria County and that compound was quite disturbing to learn about. If it is looked at on google satellite map, there is nothing remarkable about it, buit then I’m sure once they realized they weren’t below the radar anymore that they cleaned up and spread out.
However, I don’t for one second think they moved away…..Kinda like trying to get rid of roaches.

I’ve come to the conclusion that those who convert to Islam because they want to perform a jihad against the U.S. are born losers who have no brains and believe being an Islamic extremist will guarantee the only recognition they will ever have in their miserable lives.

Well, they looking for that reward of 72 Virgins. What they fail to grasp is that the Head Muslim in Charge has made a deal and now, thanks His passage of gay marriage laws, the 72 Virgins are middle-aged men. Sorry, fellas, but you blowed yourselves up, and now…..you get to spend an eternity blowing up some more! Gargle!

What I find is funny is that they forgot to mention that in the first printing of the Koran there was an error that has been in place in every copy since. It is not 72 virgins, it was A 72 year old virgin.

IFGA

You are the one missing the point. If they do go overseas they may be in a position to kill Americans as well. Also, once trained they have the ability to return to this country as they are at this point citizens. That puts them in a position to train others right here at home. Use your sixth grade reading skills to go over the fifth paragraph. If necessary use your fingers to count as high as five.

Whoa there, Junior. I was not referring to the frappin’ article. I was making a statement about the way we as a country treat them. Besides, what does your extensive education say about what will happen as they cruise through our justice system? What does it matter whether they train at a home-grown jihadi camp or abroad hands-on? There are many camps right there at home. From what I have seen they can exterminate innocents just as well whether they go or stay. Pull yourself away from MSNBC and the National Enquirer.

We have always had religious terrorist in Texas, the KKK has a long history of terror in Texas and through out the South and they come right out of the Christian Churches in the South.
It was only a matter of time before other religious extreme would carry their religious beliefs to our free world.
Guess more people take note when it’s their own way of life under attack instead of just the minorities.

Actually the KKK came out of the democratic party, the party that opposed abolishing slavery.

Sam

I was speaking of religious affiliation not parties.
And we all know the party of Lincoln Republicans is dead and gone.
I said they come out of Christians churches in the south and they considered themselves Christians.
True the KKK was born from the South when most where democrats at that time and they fought against any federal republican regulation.
BUT
The leader of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan argues that the group is a non-violent Christian organization.
I mean, we’re a Christian organization,” Frank Ancona, the group’s Imperial Wizard, told Virginia’s NBC(http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/21/virginia-kkk-fliers_n_5008647.html)

knarf714
Guest

No we don’t all know the party of Lincoln ios dead and gone. We do know that the democrats still stand for government oppression and control. the KKk still has it’s roots in the democratic party, after all the democrats elected a seantor who was a recruiter for the KKK from 1959 until he died in 2010. the democrats just have learned to hide their true goals behind rhetoric. Like LBJ said when he proposed the Great Society Programs, “If this passes we will have the n***** vote for 200 years.”

Sam
Guest
The reason the Republican party shifted from being a party that shared its principles on civil rights with the Northern and Western Democrats is that it had to pursue its — it had yet to pursue its notorious Southern strategy, before it went out and joined forces with the opponents of civil rights in the Democratic party. And that coalition is now, today, the one running the Republican party. A coalition run by old Southern Democratic thinking dressed up in a Republican uniform. Today’s Republican party is dominated by the South with little or no strength in the North. Thanks… Read more »

It has also been the republican party that has favored opportunity for everyone. The democrats have strength in the north simply because they have purchased the votes with government favors and benefits.

knarf714

Try working on your reading comprehension, I didn’t say anything about how they vote, although they certainly had choices. I don’t think there are enough left of the KKK to make a difference in any election anyway. The southern poverty law center estimates that there are only 5000-8000 KKK members nationwide anymore, and given that they tend to exxagerate it’s probably less than 3000…yes most if not all are democrats, not all democrats are part of the KKK but all KKK members are democrats.

Given your lack of reading comprehesion, you are the idiot here.

Sam

I Never said it did not,
But the facts remains the KKK rose up out the South form southern soldiers and families going to Christians churches.
and the White Christians churches in the south embraced many of the KKK leaders as heroes and look to them as their saviors standing agnst integration and freedom of the black man

Wrong again, the KKK arose from carpetbaggers from the north trying desperately to stop blacks from achieving any real freedom. During the Reconstruction period of 1865–1877, federal law provided civil rights protection in the U.S. South for freedmen – the African Americans who had formerly been slaves. In the 1870s, Democrats gradually regained power in the Southern legislatures, having used insurgent paramilitary groups, such as the White League and Red Shirts, to disrupt Republican organizing, run Republican officeholders out of town, and intimidate blacks to suppress and discourage their voting. Extensive voter fraud was also used. Gubernatorial elections were close… Read more »

Carpet baggers,?? Bull shixx Founded in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) extended into almost every southern state by 1870 and became a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for blacks. Its members waged an underground campaign of intimidation and violence directed at blacks and white republicans. A group including many former Confederate veterans founded the first branch of the Ku Klux Klan as a social club in Pulaski, Tennessee, in 1866.

I agree. The true reason Obama wants the borders open, is so Islamic extremists can flood our Country, then he will naturalize them as Citizens like he did to some other illegals a couple of years ago. That gives them the right to vote, and can vote out our Democracy. If you don’t think that is his true intention, YOU ARE WRONG! He supports the Caliphate and wants Islamic rule here.

Why do you think Obama is leaving the borders wide open. To allow Islamic extremists to come in and once they are here, he will naturalize them as Citizens, like he did some other illegals a couple of year ago Then they can vote out our democracy and destroy our Country.

So if Muslims want us to believe that they are “kind and gentle people”, why don’t they stop the jihadists or even speak up against them.

I’m inclined to agree with the Egyptian Government that Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood who has several more Brotherhood Members in his administration. We know for a fact he was selling arms to Al Qaeda and this is one reason for the deaths of Chris Stevens and others in Benghazi. Obama tried to sell arms to the Brotherhood in Egypt but the Military Coup ended his aspirations. Obama also has been arming Al Qaeda in Syria in order to overthrow Assad. Then there is Valerie Jarrett who is from Iran, she’s his top adviser.
