The FBI has arrested and charged Mufid Elfgeeh, an upstate New York store owner from Yemen with funding jihadists, the Islamic State, attempting to recruit and dispatch jihadists to Syria to fight with ISIS and plotting to kill American troops who had served in Iraq.
A CNN report said Mufid Elfgeeh was arrested on May 31 but the case against him wasn’t made clear until Tuesday. Citing an indictment, CNN noted that Elfgeeh is facing three counts of trying ‘to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization (namely, ISIS)’. He is also charged with one count of attempting to kill officers and employees of the United States, two counts of having an unregistered firearm silencer and one count of possessing guns or silencers ‘in furtherance of a crime of violence….’
As referenced in an article by the Democrat & Chronicle, the thirty-year-old lone wolf is the nephew of Abad Elfgeeh, an ice-cream shop owner in Brooklyn arrested in 2003 for funneling money to a terrorist network in Yemen.
Although not convicted of any terrorism charges, Elfgeeh a former spiritual advisor to Osama Bin Laden was charged with conspiring to support Al Qaeda and Hamas in 2005 and funneling over $25 million overseas.
Clearly, the apple has not fallen far from the tree.
Moreover, I suspect that there are hundreds of lone wolfs in New York State laying in wait.
As reported in earlier posts, Muslims own supermarkets, pharmacies, chicken shacks, grocery stores and other fast food businesses in New York State which could prove detrimental, even homicidal to sleeping New Yorkers.
I hope that somebody out there is paying attention.

Elfgeeh was arrested May 31 of this year. ZERO CREDIBILITY.
