Even people who are relatively informed these days are generally unaware of how much jihad activity there is on an ongoing basis in the United States. The jihad groups have changed their strategy away from spectacular attacks such as 9/11, at least for now, and ISIS has largely been defeated in Iraq and Syria, but as this story shows, it still has support among some American Muslims. Nonetheless, the enemedia says nothing. They seem determined to keep people ignorant and complacent regarding the jihad threat. And so this is yet another story that will be largely ignored.
“US Woman Stole $85K in Bitcoin & Cryptocurrencies Used to Support ISIS,” by Tammy Waitt, American Security Today, November 26, 2018:
Zoobia Shahnaz, 27, of Brentwood, New York, pleaded guilty on Monday committing bank fraud and laundering over $85,000 in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in order to support the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS)….
Shahnaz fraudulently applied for and used over a dozen credit cards, which she used to purchase approximately in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies online….
Specifically, Shahnaz obtained a loan for approximately $22,500 by way of materially false pretenses, representations and promises.
She also fraudulently applied for and used over a dozen credit cards, which she used to purchase approximately $62,000 in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies online.
She then engaged in a pattern of financial activity, designed to avoid transaction reporting requirements, conceal the identity, source and destination of the illicitly obtained monies, and, ultimately, benefit ISIS – by culminating in several wire transactions totaling over $150,000 to individuals and shell entities in Pakistan, China and Turkey that were fronts for ISIS.
