Joshua Van Haften is a convicted sex offender and apparently another convert to Islam who misunderstands his new, peaceful religion. Yet nary a mosque in the U.S. has any program to keep converts and other Muslims from getting the idea that Islam commands its adherents to wage war against unbelievers. Now, why is that? “Madison man who allegedly wanted to join Islamic State terrorist group arrested at O’Hare,” by Bill Novak, Madison.com, April 9, 2015 (thanks to Robert):
A Madison man was arrested Wednesday night on charges that he went overseas to join the Islamic State terrorist group, also known as ISIS or ISIL, authorities reported.
Joshua Van Haften, 34, was taken into custody by the FBI when he arrived at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago on a flight from Turkey.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Van Haften will make an initial appearance in federal court in Madison Thursday morning.
Van Haften will be charged with attempting to provide material support and resources, namely himself, to a foreign terrorist organization, according to a news release from the attorney’s office.
If convicted, he faces a maximum 15 years in federal prison.
The complaint alleges Van Haften intended to travel into Iraq or Syria to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
Van Haften allegedly left the U.S. on Aug. 26, 2014, and traveled to Istanbul, Turkey. Turkey shares a border with Syria and is an entry point into Syria for those wanting to join ISIL….
