The interview is chilling — and validates everything my colleagues and I have documented, warned of and predicted: “We are indeed here in America,” he said. “We’re in each and every state. We’re here in Ohio. We’re more organized than you think.” But no one talks about this, and when we do, we are smeared as “racist-islamophobic-anti-Muslim-bigots.”
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) – “What would I have done? I would have took my gun, I would have put it to Obama’s head and I would have pulled the trigger. Then I would have released more bullets on the Senate and the House of Representative members, and I would have attacked the Israeli embassy and various other buildings full of kafr ……
“Obama is an enemy of Allah, therefore an enemy of us, of Islamic State.”
Cornell told Macke he was planning what would have been a “major attack” to take place in Washington on September 20, repeatedly referring to himself as a member of ISIS. “I’m with the Islamic State,” he said at one point. “I have connections with many brothers over there. We’ve been corresponding for quite some time now, actually. The FBI finally caught on this past year.”
Cornell told Macke that he used “encrypted messaging” to communicate with ISIS members. He said they discussed “how we should wage jihad in America. We should form our own groups and alliances with the Islamic State,” he continued.
Cornell said he was serious about his plans. “I’m very dedicated,” he told Macke. “Like I said, I’m a Muslim. I’m so dedicated that I risked my life. That should say a whole lot.”
He also warned that there were others like himself. “We are indeed here in America,” he said. “We’re in each and every state. We’re here in Ohio. We’re more organized than you think.”
FOX19 NOW’s won its fight to air interview with American Muslim Christopher Cornell who was arrested before he could carry out his plan to assassinate plot to kill President Barack Obama, members of Congress, and attack the Israeli Embassy in Washington. During the exclusive phone interview with FOX19 NOW’s Tricia Macke from the Boone County, Ky. jail on Thursday, Cornell, 20, referred to himself as Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah. He explained his motive with the same religious fervor as Muslim soldiers fighting for ISIS, Hamas, al Qaeda, Boko Haram, MILF, Hezb’Allah, Hiz Tahrir, et al.
Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah understood jihad and Islam in exactly the same way as do hundreds of millions of other Muslims. They follow the literal word of the Quran and sunnah, as prescribed by the sharia.
Another Muslim convert “misunderstanding” Islam — absurd.
Federal authorities said he discussed how they would build, plant and detonate pipe bombs at the U.S Capitol. Then, he planned to shoot and kill employees inside. And while the delusionists in the Obama administration and in law enforcement claim he was “a lone wolf,” that, too, is absurd. There are no lone wolves in the global jihad — each Muslim is a solder.
Retired Colonel Larry C. James, Ph.D. agrees. From Guantanamo Bay to Abu Ghraib, the Army psychologist has delved into the minds of the world’s most dangerous terrorists, and has years of experience interviewing terror suspects like Cornell.
James said Cornell fits the mold of a homegrown terrorist who became radicalized through the internet, saying Cornell’s admitted intent to harm fellow American citizens is what makes him a danger to society.
The state of the Islamic State in the U.S.
Cornell said he didn’t do this alone, and spoke about his alleged ties to leaders of the Islamic State in the interview, saying he spoke with other members overseas via an encrypted messaging service.
“Talking about how we should raise Jihad in America. We should form groups and alliances with the Islamic State. When I say groups, I mean what you would call sleeper cells,” said Cornell.
“I’m with the Islamic State,” Cornell said. “I’m very dedicated to establish the Sharia in America, to wage war on the kafr (an Islamic term for ‘unbeliever’) and raise the word of Allah above all.”
Terror suspect: ‘I’m so dedicated I risked my whole life’ FOX 19, Updated March 8, 2015
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) – CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) – “What would I have done? I would have took my gun, I would have put it to Obama’s head and I would have pulled the trigger. Then I would have released more bullets on the Senate and the House of Representative members, and I would have attacked the Israeli embassy and various other buildings full of kafr who want to wage war against us Muslims and shed our blood. That’s what would happen.”
Christopher Cornell said if he had not been arrested by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents outside the Point Blank Range and Gun shop on Harrison Avenue in Colerain Township after buying firearms and 600 rounds of ammunition on Jan. 14, he would have followed through with an alleged terror plot to plant pipe bombs on the U.S. Capitol and Israeli embassy that Cornell said was organized by the Islamic State.
