California Muslim gets 8 years prison dawah for lying about ISIS

“Kodaimati later pleaded guilty. He admitted to knowing a member of the Islamic State group in Iraq and fighting alongside an al-Qaida-linked organization in Syria.” He should never have been let back into the U.S. He was a jihadi fighting for a jihad force.


“California man sentenced for lying about ISIS,” Associated Press, March 15, 2016 (thanks to Lookmann):

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A Syrian-American man living in San Diego has been sentenced to 8 years in prison for lying to U.S. officials when questioned about knowing a member of the Islamic State group and for participating in combat against the Syrian regime.

Mohamad Saeed Kodaimati appeared in federal court Monday in San Diego where he was given the maximum sentence for making false statements involving international terrorism.

Prosecutors say Kodaimati denied knowing anyone in the extremist group or taking up arms when he was stopped in March 2015 on his way back from Syria. He was arrested in April at his California home.

Kodaimati later pleaded guilty. He admitted to knowing a member of the Islamic State group in Iraq and fighting alongside an al-Qaida-linked organization in Syria. His lawyer could not be reached for comment.

    Eight years in the slammer for porky pies is a bit too much. They could have given him a plane ticket one way with the message don’t come back.

  • And in prison he will be associating with other Muslims and talking about why they hate America. If he is a devout Muslim, which I’m sure he is, then, when he gets released from prison–less than eight years for good behavior–he will really be more than ready for jihad against the infidels. Since we can’t deport citizens, then something along the lines of what joker suggested might work if Congress could pass the law: Give the vile piece of human excrement a choice between prison or going back to Syria. And if he should return then lock him up. Hopefully, he will die over there. A one-way ticket to Syria is a whole lot cheaper that what it will cost to keep him in prison.

      Hopefully, President Trump will be coming to the end of his eight-year tenure by then and might decide to deport him along with all the other miscreants!

      I think that many are returning to the west because ISIS is slowly losing and the conditions are so dreadful.
      All of a sudden the dreams of virgins and brave shouts that they wish to die for allah doesn’t match the freeloading life in the west, where people like Mohamad are protected while they spout their hatred.

    Execute this savage for treason. Or put him in that Supermax prison in Colorado.

    Why waste money on that slob? Jail is luxury compared to life under isis, deport him back to syria. Shoot on sight if he ever shows up in the west again.

    Taqiyya lies are the default silly kaffirs. Lets hope he enjoys the prison bacon.


    “He admitted to knowing a member of the Islamic State group in Iraq and fighting alongside an al-Qaida-linked organization in Syria.”

    so he worked for CIA. Obama should give him a lollipop and pat on the head

    Maximum sentence of 8 years for being a terrorist ,and probably killing a lot of people.
    What a deterrent sentence ,he will be out in 2 years.
    You will get more if you cheat the IRS
    Return him to Syria as an enemy combatant .
    Assad knows the proper sentencing for his crime ,a short drop, and than he can hang out for a while .

    Clearly our gov is building a massive jihadi army inside our country to fight against us. They blatantly reinforce that fact by allowing known jihadis to leave, go to the Middle East, kill Christians and then allow them back in.

    • The origional roger

      Yes, it is the same in Australia and much worse in Europe.

  • The origional roger

    His mother said it can’t be true, he was such a good quiet muslim, his school friends are shocked, the local Mosque can’t remember ever seeing him there and the police are counselling us not to jump to conclusions, while church organisations are calling for more interfaith dialogue and petitioning the government for more refugees.
    Obama wants to appoint him as special advisor to prevent radicalisation of teens, whereas Loretta Lynch wants to jail anyone who says anything against him.

    It fits. Martha Stewart spent time in a federal lockup for lying about a crime that was never committed.

  • Obamarrhoids

    Maybe the ONLY enticement to leave America that Americans have with these Islamic Pieces of Shiite is the promise of that 72 year old virgin…lol.

    He got off easy. If a Christian was caught in a Muslim country, they would be killed in a horrible manner.
