2 jihadists in Alabama were arrested
before they could join with terror cells in north Africa:
FBI agents arrested two US citizens - one at the airport in Atlanta, the other at a bus terminal in Augusta, Georgia - who they said were about to leave for North Africa ''to prepare to wage violent jihad''.
Mohammad Abdul Rahman Abukhdair and Randy Wilson, also known as Rasheed Wilson, both 25 and residents of Mobile, Alabama, were charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists in order ''to kill persons or damage property outside the United States''.
A criminal complaint filed in the US District Court in Mobile alleges the men met online two years ago, and later confided to an undercover FBI source their alleged plans to travel overseas with fake passports and join a terror network in Morocco or Mauritania. ''Jihad means people are going to die,'' Mr Abukhdair allegedly told Mr Wilson and the undercover source. ''It's a war … This is what jihad is. This is what war is.''
Mr Wilson later allegedly told the undercover source: ''One way or the other, everyone's gonna have to fight. This is just, this is the way of the world, man … Jihad is the pinnacle of Islam. There's no deed better than jihad.'
Warring for sport to murder innocents is wrong and evil. These creeps should be locked away forever.
