Expect the usual stories now: Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz went to the mosque infrequently, if at all. No one there knew him, but the local Muslims, shocked (shocked!) that this could happen, are bracing themselves for the “anti-Muslim backlash.” These stories can write themselves; all mainstream media reporters have to do is fill in the blanks with the latest names, places and dates.
“Neighbors Of Harrisburg Teen Charged With Supporting ISIS Express Disbelief,” by Natasha Brown, CBS, December 18, 2015 (thanks to Larry):
HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) — Neighbors of the Harrisburg teenager who has been charged with providing material support to ISIS say they’re shocked something like this could happen so close to home.
The Department Of Justice (DOJ) announced that Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz, 19, a U.S. citizen, is charged in a criminal complaint unsealed today in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
“It’s pretty crazy, when it’s right here at home,” one neighbor told Eyewitness News. “You hear it from California or Paris, but then it’s right up the street, it’s real.”
According to the complaint, Aziz has used at least 57 different Twitter accounts to advocate violence against the U.S. and U.S. citizens.
Aziz is alleged to have posted a hyperlink containing the names, addresses and other personal information of 100 reported U.S. military members and calls for violence against them.
According to the DOJ, in at least three occasions, Aziz also allegedly used his Twitter accounts and other means of electronic communication to help individuals travel to and fight for the terror group.
“According to the allegations in the complaint, Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz conspired to provide and attempted to provide material support to ISIL by propagating their hateful rhetoric on social media and aiding individuals in their pursuit of traveling overseas to join the designated foreign terrorist organization,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin. “A prior physical search of Aziz’s residence also revealed a tactical-style backpack in his closet, which contained high-capacity weapons magazines, ammunition, a knife, and other survival items. The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism, and we will remain vigilant in our efforts to hold accountable any and all those who seek to provide material support to terrorists, and to disrupt potential attacks in the United States before they happen.”…
