NYC man arrested for “relentless” attempts to join ISIS.

They stopped him from going to Syria a number of times. so why was he allowed to roam free? What could have stopped him from blowing up targets in NY or hunting down kuffar?

“By his own words, Ali Saleh was willing to pledge allegiance to, and die for ISIL, an organization that has called for terrorist attacks against the United States,” New York Police Department Commissioner Bill Bratton said in a statement.

I report these jihad-related arrests everyday in America.

NYC is crawling with them. And Obama wants to take in 100,000 immigration jihadists from Europe.

Do you really think the Texas school overreacted to that bomb-looking clock?

“Arrested for Attempting to Provide Material Support to ISIS,” By Polly Mosendz, Newsweek, September 17, 2015

A 22-year-old man named Ali Saleh was arrested on Thursday for attemping to provide material support to the Islamic State (ISIS), according to the U.S. Department of Justice. He was arrested in Queens, New York.

“I’m ready to die for the Caliphate, prison is nothing,” Saleh at one point wrote on Twitter, according to the Justice Department. He used his Twitter account to communicate with an ISIS recruiter and asked for advice on how to travel to the Middle East to join the group, authorities said.

Saleh repeatedly attempted to make plans to travel to the Middle East to join the terrorist organization, the Justice Department alleges. In August 2014, he booked a flight from New York’s JFK Airport to Istanbul, Turkey. A number of extremists use the Turkish border to cross into Syria. He did not board that flight.

He attempted to board another flight from JFK to Cairo in July, but was denied access to this flight and to two others, one from Newark and another from Philadelphia.

After repeatedly being denied access to flights to the Middle East from the United States, Saleh attempted to travel to Toronto from Cleveland by train. He was unable to do this as well.

By his own words, Ali Saleh was willing to pledge allegiance to, and die for ISIL, an organization that has called for terrorist attacks against the United States,” New York Police Department Commissioner Bill Bratton said in a statement. “Saleh’s attempts to travel to Syria and ISIL’s battlefields were halted by good intelligence and smart law enforcement. I commend the agents and detectives of the Joint Terrorism Task Force as well as the dedicated prosecutors at the office of the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.”

The case will be prosecuted by the National Security and Cybercrime Section of the Eastern District of New York.

    Express willingness to die for Isis, US citizens should be charged as a traitor. Non US citizens should be charged as a spy or the enemy combatant, life without parole or death sentence.

    • becky

      If so willing to die, why not help him out with that?

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Death sentence for jihadis.

      • Po Tato

        Sorry, The so-called ‘cultured‘ Europeans think death sentence is abhorrent, and as a result, Europe has outlawed the death penalty

        The same Europeans, however, by inviting the moslems to invade their homeland, have signed their own death warrants

        • Atikva

          True, but like in America, on that topic as on others, there is now a considerable rift between the European citizens and the governments they have been dumb enough to elect. About 60% of Western Europeans would like to reinstate the death penalty, which naturally their islamo-socialist leaders will never accept.

    >NYC is crawling with them

    The above statement is dangerously misleading in that it gives people a false sense of relieve, thinking that their neighborhood (as long as they do not stay inside NYC) is safe

    Nothing could be further from the truth

    USA is crawling with them !!

    • LEOOHKIYVT

      Your right, I am trying to convince my son that soon his world will change so that he is not in total shock when this hits the fan, and it will, the news will only get worse and worse.

  • Atikva

    Well, since the man is looking forward to dying for the IS or whatever else, he should not be deprived from fulfilling his dream. Which will also fulfill ours – and the sooner the better.

    ‘Good intelligence and smart law enforcement’? Good intelligence and smart law enforcement would be to step by step take out the US-EU regime for financing, supporting, promoting, arming, short: establishing Isis.

    People need to realize that radicalism means consequence & globalism, atheism & ecology courage. 
    The discrepancy scale of the governance of the US-EU regime, it’s de-facto Islamic judiciary system & Islamic constitution & rationalism is staggering. Police do their work, soldiers are told not to engage in fighting while the white wash-House promotes, arms & finances Islam.
    The public in the US, EU got scared when they realized that Islam isn’t the ‘religion of Peace’ so they brought in more Muslims to cover up their lies & protect them from the higher developed, intelligent people.
    Tyranny against the consequent, courageous & righteous: democracy of the tolerant, indifferent & complicit.

    To those who surveil this website, are new to this topic, have been mislead by pro-Islam indoctrination or are potential apostates from theism:
    1.: Islam is NOT a universal, human rights respecting ideology.
    2.: Humanity needs to come to terms with Muhammad’s indefinite command to sadism through Jihad-terror & Sharia-tyranny against atheists & with Muhammad emulated pederasty, mythology found enslavement of Africans, crucifixions, torture, child genital mutilation & sadist halal-slaughter. Muhammad indefinitely commands to ‘slay atheists wherever they are found’ in the Koran. Therefore no one should be allowed to promote Islam nor himself as Islamic. Creating a proactive culture of discrimination against Islam protects human rights sustainably in the long term militarily, to establish the rule of ethics: human rights, ecology, atheism, globalism, English & animal rights. 
    3.: Humanity needs to learn that the genocide of Armenian non-Muslims in the 1. world war & genocide of non-Muslims in west & east Europe (Germany, France, Poland, Ukraine…) in world war 2 were participated & led by Jihadi-‘Nobel prize-winner’-Arafat’s uncle who was appointed ‘Grandmufti of Jerusalem’ Amin El-Husseini who was stationed as General in Smyrna after joining the Armenian genocide by the Turks, ‘the Ottoman empire’ joined by Germany & later formed the Muslim Nazi SS-division while organizing the slaughter of non-Muslims with the Nazis. After the war he lived in France.

    I’d be quite happy to volunteer to have him die for the “caliphate”. All he’ll end up getting is dead and buried in a pigskin lined coffin without his male appendage attached.
    Besides, I’m of the opinion that there is no such thing as a Muslim virgin, either on Earth or in their hereafter.

  • Cate

    I’m hoping that he’ll have an “unfortunate accident” during his time in custody, during which he expires. Another terrorist dead and gone, and that’s one less than the rest of the 1 billion (or whatever their story is this week) who need to be dispatched.

    Asylum in Europe is not the solution for Islamic world
    ————————-
    Social evolution is a very painful and many times a bloody process . Those living in Middle East countries see the current European society or American society and when they compare these peaceful societies with those of conflict zones of Iraq, Syria, Libya ,Yemen etc. they start asking why they are being killed while those in Europe or US are living in peace and prosperity ! And then they start searching excuses like US invasion as the root cause of their problem.
    But the real problem lies somewhere else ! When Iraq captured Kuwait, it was the responsibility of Arab States, Iran and Egypt to liberate Kuwait . But what did these neighbours do ? Nothing ! And then US had to intervene on request of the legitimate government of Kuwait.
    U.S had also attacked Vietnam but once US left, Vietnam didn’t go under civil war ! Even Koreans didn’t go under civil war ! Britishers left India after two hundred years of rule , but once they left, Indians didn’t fight a civil war . So is the story with South Africa .
    But once US left Iraq , civil war broke out . Same is true with Libya and Afghanistan . Why ?
    Let us go into the history of social evolution to find the answer .
    You become many times angry and start abusing Europeans / Americans for your own bloody fate . But you never realise how much sacrifice those European countries have done in past to achieve their own freedom ,peace and prosperity . You fail to realise that millions of Europeans died to achieve their freedom from kings , feudals and dictators . You fail to realise how Europeans fought with their church to free their state from religious fanaticism . You fail to realise that during French Revolution alone, they had to kill thousands of Christians priests to achieve secularism .
    You fail to realise that when their freedom was threatened by a monster called Hitler , none of Europeans fled as refugees to Asia ; rather they stayed back in their own land and fought with that dictator . Nearly thirty million Europeans / Americans/ USSR people voluntarily fought and sacrificed their life to protect their freedom during Second World War .
    If today Europe or Americans are free and peaceful, this is because their ancestors made great sacrifice for their future generation .
    Now compare this with Middle East ! Where is the equivalent of Glorious revolution of 1688AD or French Revolution of 1789AD in Middle East ? Where is the fight against the political Islam just like what happened against church in Europe ?
    Even today, majority of Muslims ( except Kurds ) are fighting in the name of Allah and not in name of freedom ! So, if you are fighting in the name of Allah, you can get only what Allah has prescribed for you ! How can you expect to get freedom when you don’t fight in the name of freedom ?
    This is the real dilemma which the Muslim world is facing . You can’t love your faith and at the same time expect freedom like Europe because Europeans achieved their freedom by fighting against their religion .
    Europeans can write anything , against anyone , even against Christ and can even make fun of him and the state will protect them !
    But what is your laws in Middle East ? Can you write against the God and his prophet ? No . Because if you dare to write so, forget state , even those who are seeking refugee status will kill you . Now, if this is the status of your social evolution currently , how can you expect to live in freedom and peace like Europeans or Americans do !
    With this much little social evolution, you are bound to live under either a dictator like Saddam, or a tyrant monarchy like Saudi or under extremely barbarians like Isis ! You have no other option right now . If you want to get your true freedom , your generation too has to make great sacrifices like Europeans did in past . May be millions of young people of your generation would have to die so that your children may enjoy freedom for ever . You have to create your own equivalent of French Revolution ? You have to die fighting against not only Isis but even against the Islamic preachers . Let it be very clear , if you don’t fight against political Islam , you better forget the dream of getting absolute freedom like Europeans.
    But unfortunately people in Middle East have so much affinity for political Islam that they don’t realise that this is the root cause of problems .
    And this is the main reason why the Europeans are not willing to accept you as refugees . In the past they took Algerians , Moroccans, Somalians, Afghans etc . And the result ! The result is Charlie Hebdo !
    The French society which killed thousands of Christian preachers during French Revolution to get freedom from church , the society where even Christ can be mocked ; suddenly now finds that some morons are objecting to the cartoons of Muhammad . Do you understand what does it mean to the French society ? This means that the great sacrifice of the French revolutionaries has been undone by unevolved stupid refugees .
    What does this further mean ? This means that Europeans / Americans have to fight back to preserve their freedom . And one step of this fight back is to stop accepting refugees from unevolved societies ! This is what is happening now ! They are not willing to accept refugees because these people are a threat to their freedom .
    This is bound to happen . No free society will like to lose its freedom . They can go to any extent to preserve their right . And let us not forget that history has been very cruel to those who refuse to evolve with time . Free societies hit back and sometimes hit back very hard, that may even appear very barbaric but this is on what the goddess of freedom survives . Japanese tasted this brutal response of the free society during Second World War .
    So what is the solution of the Middle East crisis ! No near term solution appears in sight . The war may go on for long and you have to fight for your future generations. Running away as refugee is not the solution for two reasons , one , that there is limit to what any country will accept you as refugees
    and second , that running away is not going to evolve your society and problem remains unsolved . Even increase in refugees in free societies may create unrest in future and if that happens then where will you go !
    So, the path to bright future is only one . And that is the path of sacrifice and martyrdom ! This is what Kurds have started . Muslim youths of other countries have to learn from Kurds , come forward, say clearly that the days of political Islam are over and fight for democracy and secularism . Freedom, democracy and secularism are inseparable. Anybody who claims to fight for freedom under any religious banner is a fraud ! Either you fight for democracy and absolute secularism with modern pro human laws or you prepare yourself to live under brutal monarchs or dictators with sharia as state law .
    Choice is yours . Asylum is not , not the solution ; it is going to be one of major problems in long term .
