The phenomenon of sham marriages by jihadists, and real marriages accomplished by seductions of unwitting non-Muslim Western women, has been insufficiently investigated, although horror stories abound. From the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, :
A Minneapolis man accused of lying to authorities in a terrorism investigation is facing three new charges that he paid a U.S. citizen to marry him, then used a green card from that fraudulent marriage to try to get jobs in the Twin Cities area.
Mohamad Kamal Elzahabi was indicted on charges of possessing fraudulent immigration documents, according to papers scanned into the computer system Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis.
The new indictment comes on top of charges in June 2004 that Elzahabi, then 41, lied to federal agents about sending walkie-talkies to Pakistan and helping to get a Massachusetts driver’s license for a man later convicted of plotting to bomb American and Israeli tourists in Jordan.
Elzahabi allegedly told FBI agents that he taught sniping in Afghanistan and associated with Al-Qaida leaders….
Elzahabi, a Lebanese national, allegedly told authorities he entered the United States in the 1980s and paid a Houston woman to marry him, then divorced her after getting his green card.
