IS ISIS

Obama is importing Muslims from jihad nations by the hundreds of thousands. What does he expect to happen? What does he want to happen?
The Obama administration’s rejection of Israel visas increased 80%, but he brought 300,000 Muslim immigrants into the US in 2013 alone.

Yesterday two Muslims were sentenced in California to 25 years for plotting to kill Americans. How can anyone think jihad isn’t already a problem here in America?

“3 arrested in New York City for allegedly conspiring to support ISIS” FOX News, February 25, 2015

Three New York City residents — two with Uzbekistan citizenship, and one a citizen of Kazakhstan — plotted to travel to Syria to join ISIS militants and ‘wage jihad,’ the Justice Department announced on Wednesday.

One of the defendants also offered to kill the president of the United States if ordered to do so, the criminal complaint alleged.

The men were identified in the complaint as Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, 24, a resident of Brooklyn and a citizen of Uzbekistan; Akhror Saidakhmetov, 19, a resident of Brooklyn and a citizen of Kazakhstan; and Abror Habibov, 30, a resident of Brooklyn and a citizen of Uzbekistan.

Federal prosecutors say two of the men came to the attention of law enforcement last summer after they expressed online support for the groups. Hilofatnews.com was an Uzbek-language website that called for readers to join the terror group, the complaint said. Authorities were able to link Juraboev to the post, the complaint said.

In August, federal agents met with Juraboev and he spoke of his hopes of fighting with the terror group in Iraq or Syria, the complaint said. He also allegedly mentioned to the agents that he hoped to harm President Obama because of ‘Allah.’

Saidakhmetov was arrested early Wednesday at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he tried to board a plane headed to Istanbul, authorities said. Juraboev had plane tickets for March 29 and Habibov helped fund Saidakhmetov’s trip, the complaint said.

Authorities have a recorded conversation where Saidakhmetov expressed interest in joining the U.S. military, the complaint said. He allegedly said he could offer information to Islamic militants or open fire on American troops to kill as many as possible.

According to the complaint, Saidakhmetov was recorded in January saying, “I will just go and buy a machine gun, AK-47, go out and shoot all police.”

The two had hopes of joining the terror group and–if their travel plans were dashed– had intentions to commit terror in the U.S., the complaint said. Saidakhmetov–if prevented from joining the terror group– wanted to purchase a machine gun and shoot law enforcement, the complaint said.

Saidakhmetov allegedly said, “It is legal in America to carry a gun. We will go and purchase one handgun…then go and shoot one police officer…Boom…Then we will take his gun, bullets and a bulletproof vest…then we will do the same with a couple others. Then we will go to the FBI headquarters, kill the FBI people…”

They were officially charged with conspiracy to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). If convicted, each defendant faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

The three are expected to appear in court today.

“We will vigorously prosecute those who attempt to travel to Syria to wage violent jihad on behalf of ISIL and those who support them,” U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch said in a statement. “Anyone who threatens our citizens and our allies, here or abroad, will face the full force of American justice.”

Reuters reported that there are ISIS-related investigations in all 50 state

    If Islam is a religion of peace then I guess Obama doesn’t need any security when he travels to peaceful Islamic countries like Iraq,Syria,Afghanistan and Pakistan..

    Wish they could have targeted Obama though!

    • Anan

      I’am sorry, first of all, what American soldiers doing in iraq and Syria, to make peace!!!!! Stupid, Obama and his soldiers are terrorists, stay in your country, don’t fight islam and said if he replied by fighting for his religion and country they are terrorist, the islam is religion of peace if you don’t attack him. Though before you shit from your mouth. And Get out from our countries

      • Marco

        You cant imagine how much we want out of your hellhole countries. Why are you slaughtering innocent non muslims in your hellholes? Problem is you wont get out of ours. Your prophet was a straight out hardened psychopath.

      • Keshav

        You stupid muslim right now are killing and raping every minority in Iraq and Syria and in Afghanistan you are begging Americans to stay so that Taliban don’t take over your country because Islam is like a cancer spreading terror all over the world…You should be lucky no one has nuked your country so far If I was in charge that would have been the first thing to do!

      • Beagle

        That is a great idea. We will pull out our soldiers and send our Muslims back to the Dar al-Islam, the one-way Hajj I proposed about ten years ago. We should even buy the ticket. Toss in headphones and a movie.

      • Clare

        Only if Mahometans Get Out from OURS. Stay in Islam states and kill and make slaves out of your own. We do not want Islam. Why do Mahometans come to America?

      • 4True

        You came to ours first and continue to plot against us from places like Kazakhstan and Nigeria where we have never had a presence. You and your teachers are lying swine looking for excuses to destroy people who take you in, educate you, feed and heal you.

      • Lisa Miller

        For that matter, oh great MUSLIM, get the hell out of ours while you are at it! You hate everything about us so go back to your deserts and practice your barbarism there! Shoo, go home! Fly away and don’t come back. Adios amigos, sayonara! Toodles! Waving bye bye! I will help you pack!

  • Peace

    I’m from Russia and I told 100 times stop Muslims immigrants from the former USSR
    Remember Boston marathon?
    50% of Brighton beach in NY now from Uzbekistan, Tadjikistan and so on. In the nearest future it will be catastrophic with no way back

    • Beagle

      We listened. It is our suicidal administration fast tracking Muslims into this country.

      • jon wright

        exactly!Buraq’s plan is to get lots of muzzlem agents in through the open borders. Has nobody thought of that? Dont be surprised if suddenly you get the “fireworks” thanks to the Ayatolah Buraq O.

  • Sam McGee

    Don’t arrest Muslims for targeting Obama. Instead, do the patriotic thing and give them the security credentials required to get in the WH.

    • Judi

      My thoughts exactly!

    • Lisa Miller

      They are in the WH now!

  • Framz Ferdomamd

    What I want to know is how they got into the country?

    • jon wright

      Buraq O’s open borders. Lots of Possibilities

  • Beagle

    How did these Muslims get the idea jihad means waging war or killing police officers? Have they been reading Atlas or Jihad Watch instead of listening to John Brennan?

    I guess it is possible they derived their misunderstanding from Islamic scripture and their mosque. Someone alert John Kerry.

  • 4True

    I can’t wish these ungrateful , evil young people anything good.

  • Tom Nguyen

    Why you soooooo…. stupid obama???

  • Matt Foley

    I totally agree with Pamela, especially importing them to the big election states like Ohio. Obama is pure evil, and the people who voted for him are just useful idiots, forget about the media.

  • Lia

    I read all the posts asking for a military coup, praying that 2016 will come soon, etc., etc. I never thought of this!

  • MattBracken

    I don’t care what “moderate Muslims” think or say any more.
    They are either deluded fools, or covert taqiyya jihadists.

  • Lisa Miller

    What’s so horrible is that their Islamic indoctrination will be enforced in prison with the other Islamic prisoners. Obama has tried his best to destroy America piece by piece. He has become a dictator – he no longer cares about us and will only support MUSLIMS. A man who says that the Muslims founded this country, a man that says he will stand up for the Muslims before he will stand up for Americans, and a man who entertains the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR in the WH on a continuing basis is not a leader of the US. He has sold us out and lied about his true intent. You can’t respect s man like this!
