Lots of ISIS activity this week here in America. Two Florida men have pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State, according to the Department of Justice.
A Texas Muslim was charged with aiding ISIS.
And two Chicago Muslims face up to 20 years in prison if convicted of providing material support to ISIS What’s clear is just how seriously these Muslims take their Islam…
For example, in the criminal complaint against the Illinois jihadists:
“Brother there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. That is the name Kaffirs [non-believers] give to weak minded material loving sellouts. The intention of these people is to put kafir in a ruling position instead of Allah.”
Similarly, on or about May 13, 2015, using Google+ account Yusuf Abdulahad, JONES posted an essay, “Jihad: The Forgotten Obligation.” The essay includes statements such as, “Jihad is the best deed and the best grade of jihad is Shahadah [martyrdom] which the Shaheed [martyr] has achieved.” The essay also states that “It is clear from this Hadith that the person who does Jihad in Allah’s path is more superior than other Muslims,” and “Allah’s love and blessing is with those who demonstrate their commitment by sacrificing their lives and wealth for Allah.”
In a posting, SCHIMENTI stated, “May Allah reward this fierce mujahideen who uses his life, body, and earthly might to make Allah’s Law govern all, may Allah reward him for striking fear in the hearts of the taghut and the disbelievers in general.” SCHIMENTI continued his comments regarding this Boko Haram post by saying, “May Allah reward this brother who has left his family and life to fight for establishment of the Islamic State…I love him…what can the kuffar do.? They have noone…”
JONES, during the meeting on or about March 11, 2017, with SCHIMENTI and the CHS described above, used Communication Platform 1 to tell UC2, “Brother there is another brother who is ready.” UC2 responded, “AllahuAkhbar [God is great]. May Allah (SWT) be pleased with your efforts and reward you with the highest level of Jannah [paradise].

FBI Sting Nets Two Chicago Area ISIS Supporters
by John Rossomando • IP, Apr 13, 2017: Two Chicago area men face up to 20 years in prison if convicted of providing material support to ISIS Joseph D. Jones and Edward Schimenti, both 35, were arrested Wednesday morning. They tried to provided ISIS cellphones and personnel, an FBI affidavit alleges.
The supplies were given instead to an FBI informant. Jones, aka “Yusuf Abdulhaqq,” and Schimenti, aka “Abdul Wali,” thought the phones would be used to detonate improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Jones told an undercover FBI employee he declared his allegiance – or bayah – to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
They also worked to help the informant travel overseas to fight for ISIS and encouraged him to get into fighting shape, the affidavit said. Jones and Schimenti told the informant to be careful and avoid law enforcement detection.
The sting began in September 2015, when Jones met an undercover FBI employee. The meeting took place inside the Zion Police Department, where Jones was being interviewed about a friend’s recent murder. Both Jones and Schimenti expressed support when the undercover later said he wanted to join ISIS.
Other undercover agents tricked Jones and Schimenti into thinking their new friend did make it to Syria.
A year ago, Jones and Schimenti posed for pictures holding an ISIS flag at the entrance to the Illinois Beach State Park in Zion, Ill. Jones sent the picture to another undercover FBI agent with whom he communicated online. ISIS supporters also posted the image after a fourth undercover FBI employee asked Jones’ permission to share it via social media.
Jones also made numerous statements endorsing violent jihad on his Google+ account under the name “Yusuf Abdulahad,” the complaint said. Among other things, Jones called moderate Muslims “weak minded material loving sellouts.” He also called jihad the “best deed” and praised martyrdom.
Schimenti made similar posts using the Google + account “Ed Schimenti.” “Kuffar [unbelievers], we are coming to slay you,” Schimenti wrote in an April 2015 post.
In February, Schimenti and Jones met the informant for a workout at a Zion gym. When the informant said the workout would help prepare for fighting, Schimenti responded, “Right, right, right…it’s about that strength and that endurance.”
Jones and Schimenti worked with the informant last month to collect cellphones. They believed the phones would be sent to ISIS and used as bomb detonators. Last week, the two drove the informant to O’Hare Airport, thinking he was traveling to Syria to fight for ISIS.
Jones said he was ashamed not to be going, too. Schimenti said he wanted the informant to “drench that land with they, they blood.”
