Amir-al-Ghazi

What mosque did Amir Said Rahman Al-Ghazi attend? It should be investigated and, of found to be preaching jihad, shut down. This shouldn’t even be controversial.

“Ohio Man Pleads Guilty to Trying to Help ISIS,” by Phil Helsel, NBC News, March 18, 2016:

An Ohio man who allegedly swore allegiance to the leader of the terror group ISIS and tried to recruit others on Wednesday pleaded guilty to federal charges.

Amir Said Rahman Al-Ghazi, 39, of Sheffield Lake, pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and two counts of being a felon in possession of firearms, prosecutors said.

Al-Ghazi, who changed his name form Robert McCullom last year, faces 16 years in prison under a plea agreement, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio said.

Al-Ghazi was arrested on June 19 after allegedly buying an AK-47 from an undercover agent to use in propaganda videos, according to a criminal complaint. A.45-caliber handgun, an ISIS flag and a sword was found at his home, officials said.

Al-Ghazi pledged allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi via social media in 2014, and last year told an FBI informant he wanted to “put a squad together” for an attack on the U.S., according to a criminal complaint….

  • I’m sorry, so tell me again WHY we allow rotting garbage like this into OUR country?

    • TexasStomp

      More to the point, why are taxpayers going to have to pay for his incarceration or deportation when it was our gov’t, in violation of our immigration laws who let come into and remain in this country? How do we taxpayers bill our lyin, lawless gov’t for MALFEASANCE AND FRAUD?

        And did you see that Salah Abdeslam, one of the Paris terrorists, came in as a Syrian refugee? He had a forged Syrian passport with the name Monir Ahmid Ahmaad Alaaj on it. I wonder how many thousands more with forged passports are floating arounf Europe and coming into North America.

          maybe , now after the brussels attack, the eu will stop accepting the muzzies

        Simple, vote for Trump.

  • Fred

    Execute the savage for treason.

  • PIGBERT

    ugly nog. must be another of obama’s sons

    • Drew the Infidel

      Totally agree, and it is a common trait with ragheads, probably from inbreeding. It reminds me of all those political gatherings where Hillary is always surrounded by fat ugly women. Is it for contrast or camouflage?

  • Dravaa

    Right, shut down any mosque that produces even one terrorist.
    Perhaps then the Muslims who claim to be moderate (if there truly are any)will begin to care about their brethren who are disgusting barbarians, and find a way to stop them or turn them in, instead of smiling benignly at them and harboring them.

    The most irritating and dismaying messages are the persistent use of the terms radicalized, home-grown and lone wolf even by alleged friendly media like Fox. There doesn’t seem to be even a moments consideration to how inappropriate and misleading the use of such terms influences the public misunderstanding of the true facts involved with this problem. One is not radicalized online. It happens like every radicalization which in this case involves the home, the Mosque and the school. Isis social media doesn’t radicalize, it activates and saying activate would be understood far differently by a busy public that hasn’t studied the issues. Overwhelmingly the actors are immigrants or children of immigrants that cling to savage beliefs, so America as home is not responsible. A lone wolf is actually driven from the pack and hunts solely for his benefit with other lone wolfs, but all of the jihadists are undifferentiated members of the Islamic pack. How can we even begin to effectively deal with this problem when so many refuse or fail to even talk about it in any meaningful way?

    • There are no such things are “moderat” Muslims and “radical” Islam. All Muslims pray to one “Allah,” follow one “prophet,” and teach and learn from the same Qur’an. Do the math.

      • Dean

        It is hard to know how many Muslims are moderate or what that means. A minority are motivated to action but most are sympathetic with jihad an/or its goals. A moderate that supports American ideals is clearly an apostate so it is hard for them to speak out even in this country. But my point applies to those willing to act even while they are still in a relatively weak minority. They have been radicalized and waiting for the moment to strike.

      They do it thinking that to keep the savages from being called out they, the media, will escape the carnage.
      Stupid, ignorant people, they.

    Wolves in sheep’s clothing.

    As a card carrying member of the NRA it does my heart good to see actual firearms violators brought to justice. In reading about flakes like this you can begin to understand why I legally carry a Beretta 96-A1. Like American Express, “Don’t leave home without it”.

    And in prison, he will be allowed to pray five times a day, order special food, meet with like minded Muslims, have a library of Muslim materials to read, and will come out far worse than when he went in.

  • Up Huff

    Give him the full 16, no time off for good behavior, and have it all be on bread and water and hard labor.
    Then send him back to Africa when he’s done. IF he survives the sentence.
    Maybe it’s time our laws are clarified or, if need be,written to include the death penalty for treasonous acts. Giving aid and comfort to the enemy IS treason, and should be handled accordingly.

  • J. Neville Groff

    Saving grace is they seem really, really stupid. Beware the hive minds in control of these vermin however.

  • joker

    He is a born American and should be put to sleep for his treacherous act toward the US. Or serving his sentence to the full and every day he curse’s himself.

    • Steve

      How about putting him on an island with the same kind of criminals inhabited by hyenas and komodo dragons. He could try to swim for it so it would have to be in the middle of an ocean. It would be a great step in controlling crime inexpensively.

  • Ohio man 007

    better to send him to Syria, then to put him in prison. he wants to be ISIS. Send him by military flight to Syria. Destroy his US citizenship and let him apply for ISIS passport. Make him a man with no nation.

  • Steve

    This is your typical black lies mutter gone holy with a lengthy rap sheet who chose to commit crime and sent to prison and then recruited care of your local mosque outreach services.
