Rochester: Muslim Doctor Charged with Aiding Islamic State


Jihad transcends age, income, color, education, nationality, everything. It’s the ideology, stupid.

We are constantly admonished that jihad terror activity is the result of poverty and alienation, as well as a lack of education. Poor Muslims without any opportunities in this world, harassed and discriminated against by the kuffar, and lacking knowledge of the true Religion of Peace, turn to terror out of desperation and as a means to give themselves some occupation and meaning in life. Reality, however, is quite different. Again and again we have seen educated, affluent Muslims engaging in jihad. It is not poverty, lack of opportunity or hardship that creates jihad killers — the common denominator is Islam. It’s the same pattern over and over again. Siful Sujan is further proof of all I have said and refutation of the popular leftist myth that the elites traffic in — that jihadis are poverty-stricken, disaffected, illiterate youths.

It’s the same pattern over and over again. Muslim doctors in Michigan, US naval officers, popular happy Muslim teens in Mississippi, Muslim rappers in Germany, Muslim doctors in Glasgow and Australia, Muslim chemical engineering students in Canada, the UK’s top students at their most elite schools, Muslim herdsmen in Nigeria, Muslim British surgeons, Muslim heart surgeons in Saudi Arabia, university students in Britain, imams in America, Muslim doctors in Australia, Canadian Idol contestants, and so forth – what brings these wildly different people together? Jihad. From the Sahara to the Kalahari, London to Lisbon, Manhattan to Madrid, Bali to Boston, Tiananmen Square to Thailand, Myanmar to Malaysia, Nairobi to Nigeria ….. no matter what the background, upbringing, schooling, wealth or poverty, color, what have you, it doesn’t matter. The understanding of Islam and jihad is the same, and it is the motive, the incitement to this genocidal war on the West and and the East and all points in between.

This is not rocket science. This is reality.

Rochester doctor charged with trying to help terrorists

By KIMT, Mar 19, 2020:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A Pakistani doctor in Rochester is accused of trying to help the terrorist group ISIS.Muhammad Masood, 28, was arrested Thursday at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and is being held pending a formal detention hearing on March 24.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Masood, a licensed doctor in Pakistan, was formerly employed as a research coordinator at a Rochester medical clinic. He’s charged with attempt to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Federal authorities say that between January and March, Masood made statements pledging his allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham, also known as ISIS, and expressing a desire to travel to Syria to fight for the terror group. Investigators say Masood also indicated a willingness to conduct “lone wolf” terrorist attacks in the United States.

Masood is accused of buying a plane ticket from Chicago to Amman, Jordan on February 21. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Masood’s plans changed because Jordan closed its borders due to the coronavirus pandemic. Masood allegedly made a new plan to fly from Minneapolis to Los Angeles and meet with someone there who be believed would help him board a cargo ship that would take him to ISIS territory.

Investigators say Masood traveled from Rochester to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to board a flight for Los Angeles on Thursday. The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Masood after he checked in for his flight.
