Virgina is, after all, a “southern state” which automatically makes them “Islamophobic.” Why else would two peace loving members of the Religion of Peace – and that would be Islam – get harassed to the point of being arrested in Richmond?
A Virginia man who was allegedly attempting to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group and a man accused of helping him have been arrested.
Prosecutors said in a statement Saturday that 28-year-old Joseph Hassan Farrokh was arrested Friday at the airport in Richmond, Virginia. Officials said his ultimate destination was Syria.
I can’t wait for Hamas supporting CAIR to make an announcement that Farrokh was just on a pilgrimage to the “holy land.”
Officials also arrested 25-year-old Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan, who they say drove Farrokh to Richmond. Both men are from Woodbridge, Virginia.
See, more harassment. He was just driving his friend to the airport. So he could go on his religious pilgrimage.
Farrokh asked for help getting to Syria from a person who he didn’t know was an informant for the FBI. He later met with two other FBI informants he believed were people who could help him join the Islamic State group. Court documents say Farrokh expressed concerns about trusting the men and said he didn’t want to go to jail. At one meeting with them, however, he agreed to swear an oath of allegiance, court documents said. He also allegedly said that he wanted to die a martyr…
Like we said, a religious pilgrimage. Any good Muslim can relate to that.
