An Ohio Muslim was recently arrested for his role in constructing a terror plot, but it was what authorities found in his jail cell that was even more shocking.
Yahya Farooq Mohammad is a Muslim that fled the United Arab Emirates and came to the United States in 2008.
After our country provided him shelter and safety, he turned his back on us and began scheming with other terrorists to create a terror plot.
Not long after coming to the U.S., Mohammad began communicating with known terrorist recruiter Anwar Al-Awlaki and even traveled to Yemen to provide him with thousands of dollars and equipment to carry out future terror attacks.
The Blade reports:
A man awaiting trial in the Lucas County jail for providing financial support to the al-Quaeda terrorist network was charged late today with trying to get U.S. District Court Judge Jack Zouhary assassinated.
Federal investigators claim Yahya Farooq Mohammad, 37, of the United Arab Emirates, not only wanted the judge dead but also wanted his would-be assassin to make sure his body was not found.
Mr. Mohammad was indicted by a federal grand jury in Toledo for attempted first-degree murder of a federal officer, solicitation to commit a crime of violence, and use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire.
Even crazier, Mohammad tried to order a hit against the judge overseeing his case from his jail cell.
Freedom Daily reports:
The indictment claims he told a fellow inmate at the Lucas County jail he would pay $15,000 to have Judge Zouhary, who is presiding over his terrorism case, killed. Prosecutors presented evidence that showed Mr. Mohammad arranged for his wife to make a $1,000 downpayment, which she did on May 5, according to the indictment.
“When asked when he wanted the murder committed, Mohammad stated, ‘The sooner would be good, you know,’” the indictment said.
“This prosecution seeks to hold the defendant accountable for attempting to victimize the judge and for trying to undermine our criminal justice system,” Barbara L. McQuade, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, said in a news release.
This is beyond crazy and is a clear example of why we need to close our borders and stop accepting refugees from dangerous countries.
