FBI Busts Two Homegrown Jihadis In Raleigh

Interestingly, the local paper, the Raleigh News and Observer, the paper for the state capital of North Carolina, has zero coverage of this story. I guess we don’t want to upset Muslim extremists

(WRAL) Planes linked to a company with FBI connections circled a north Raleigh neighborhood for weeks before a Wednesday raid that resulted in terrorism charges against two men.

Authorities said in court documents that Akbar Jihad Jordan and Avin Marsalis Brown planned to travel to Syria and Yemen to fight for Islam. Federal law prohibits conspiring to kill or maim people outside the U.S.

FBI agents seized several weapons, including an AK-47 rifle and a sword, along with ammunition from the apartment off Gresham Lake Road that Jordan, 21, shared with his mother. (snip)

Brown was arrested Wednesday at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and he told investigators that he planned to fly to Turkey and then travel to Syria, according to court records. He made his first court appearance Thursday morning. (snip)

Jordan even stated at one point that he slept on his kitchen floor with an AK-47 and a Quran to empathize with Muslims in Syria.

WRAL seems to focus more on the planes, rather than on these Muslim extremists who wanted to go fight in Syria.

One person in the comments notes that if they wanted to go fight and die in Syria, that’s what they should have been allowed to do. Makes sense, to a point. Instead, we’ll spend millions incarcerating and trying them.

    Jihad Jordan, LOL! I’ll bet you his mommy didn’t name him that.

    What a chump, a grown man sleeping on mommy’s floor. Dreaming of fighting jihad in Syria like a holy hero. Except that if he ever got there, he would have found himself caught up in kidnapping nuns, beheading priests, torturing Alawites, fighting other jihadi biotches over who has the right jihad, then if he’s still alive he’ll end up shipping off to Yemen to fight some other jihad until a Reaper takes him out. Oh, and dude, remember, the big imam in Syria has ruled that it is haram to pick the lice from your beard. Those are allah’s lice. What, you don’t even have a beard? How pretty!

    He should thank the FBI for saving his life. The first thing that he would have learned in Syria is the no beard == suicide bomber.

    Jihad Jordan and Marsalis Brown. Sounds like two characters for the next Quentin Tarantino flick.
