The FBI has detained yet another Islamic immigrant named Mohamed for preparing a jihad attack.
This time, the arrested Islamic immigrant is Nelash Mohamed Das, aged 24. He was born in Bangladesh and was living in Maryland.
Since 2001, law-enforcement officials have arrested more than 101 people named for Islam’s reputed prophet, Muhammad. Many other Islamic immigrants, converts and citizens have launched deadly attacks against Americans in Orlando, Florida, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in San Bernardino, California, in Fort Hood, Texas, and in other places.
In 2015, Das began to prepare a murder attempt of a U.S. service member living in Hyattsville, Maryland. When he and a confidential FBI source drove to the target’s house on October 3, Das was arrested as he tried to remove the weapons from the car’s trunk.
Das repeatedly expressed his determination to comply with Islam’s doctrinaire call for war against non-believers, showed his support for the Islamic States in Syria, and expressed his belief in orthodox Islam’s offer of paradise in exchange for murder. According to the Baltimore Sun,
Das used social media last year to express his support for ISIS, prosecutors said, “including support for terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and San Bernardino, California.”
Das tweeted the name and hometown of the service member, prosecutors said, and said the service member “aspires to kill Muslims.”…
Das tweeted a picture of an AK-47 assault rifle, prosecutors said, and wrote, “This is more than just a gun. This is a ticket to Jannah” — a reference, prosecutors said, to “the Islamic concept of paradise.”
On Twitter, Das also expressed envy of people “slaying kuffar” — killing nonbelievers — and dying as religious martyrs, prosecutors said…
During a meeting [with the confidential FBI source] on Sept. 11, prosecutors said, “Das confirmed that he was committed ‘100 percent’ to conducting an attack.”
“‘That’s like my goal in life,'” he told the source, prosecutors said. And on Friday, prosecutors said, he sent the source a text: “I’m ready”
Das arrived in the United States in 1995. He did not assimilate into U.S. culture, and remained a “permanent resident,” not a citizen.
Despite the evidence that jihadis are motivated by Islam, top U.S. officials, including President Barack Obama, insist that Islam does not motivate jihad attacks.
“Where we see terrorist organizations like al Qaeda or ISIL, they have perverted and distorted and tried to claim the mantle of Islam for an excuse for basically, barbarism and death,” Obama recently told the mother of a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq. “There’s no religious rationale that would justify in any way any of the things that they do,” Obama said Sept. 28.
The prosecutor in the case described the Islamic motives of Das, but still used the language of criminal law to portray the attack as motivated by a “terrorist organization,” not by Islam’s jihad doctrine. According to The Baltimore Sun,
“Nelash Mohamed Das is alleged to have plotted to kill a U.S. service member on behalf of ISIL,” said John Carlin, the assistant attorney general for national security, using an alternate acronym for the Islamic State. “Individuals intent on carrying out violence in the name of foreign terrorist organizations pose one of the most concerning threats that law enforcement faces today, and stopping these offenders before they are able to act is our highest priority.”
Despite the FBI’s successful detention of many imported Islamic jihadis, the federal government is rapidly increasing the inflow of Islamic followers into the United States. In July, Breitbart reported that;
Pew Research has estimated that immigration will cause the population of U.S. Muslims to more than double over the next two decades—from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030. This demographic change is entirely the product of legal admissions–that is, it is a formal policy of the federal government adopted by Congress.
