Indiana: Muslim had “kill list” of US service members, tried to join the Islamic State

Where did Akram Musleh learn about Islam? Has his local mosque been investigated? Why not?

“Brownsburg man who tried to join Islamic State group is sentenced to federal prison,” by Crystal Hill, Indianapolis Star, June 21, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A Brownsburg man who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group and planned to travel to Syria to join them was sentenced Friday to more than eight years in federal prison, officials said.

U.S. District Court Judge Sarah Evans Barker handed down the 100-month sentence Friday afternoon in the case against 21-year-old Akram Musleh, U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler announced….

Musleh, a U.S. citizen, pleaded guilty last year to attempting to provide material support of resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

He admitted in the plea agreement that from about April 2016 through June 21, 2016, he offered himself to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, also known as IS, knowing it was a “designated foreign terrorist organization.”…

A search of Musleh’s electronic devices found files containing IS propaganda, including a “kill list” of U.S. service members published by IS, and a pro-jihad video Musleh created that included a list of Hoosier service members killed in action during Operation Iraqi Freedom, according to federal officials.
