FBI arrest MD man who 'received $9,000 from ISIS

FBI arrest Maryland man who 'received $9,000 from ISIS to attack U.S.

Mohamed Elshinawy, 30, arrested on Friday, charged with supporting ISIS
He allegedly received $9,000 from the Islamic State to attack the U.S.
Elshinawy, a U.S. citizen, 'pledged to ISIS this year, vowed to die a martyr'

Elshinawy used several disposable mobile phones, social media accounts and email accounts to hide his communications with those people, the government said.

When interviewed by federal agents, according to the complaint, Elshinawy said he never intended to carry out an attack and was simply trying to convince Islamic State to send him money.

He was expected to appear in federal court in Baltimore later on Monday. His defense lawyer could not immediately be identified.

Earlier on Monday, an Illinois National Guard member pleaded guilty to plotting with his cousin to attack a military facility as part of a conspiracy to support Islamic State.
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but the citizens capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.

Baltimore has a way of attracting dubious people.   :rolleyes:

Gotta admit that it would be funny if someone "nigeria scammed" isis!
One of every five Americans you meet has a mental illness of some sort. Many, many, of our veteran's suffer from mental illness like PTSD now also. Help if ya can. :) http://www.projectsemicolon.org/share-your-story.html
