Five American Muslims Students Arrested In Pakistan
The five American citizens arrested by Pakistani police during a raid on banned Pakistani terrorist group Jaish-e-Muhammad have told investigators they came to the country to participate in "jihad."
Pakistani police in the town of Sarghona said all five had valid U.S. passports with valid Pakistani visas. They said two of them were Pakistani-born Americans and the others were born in Egypt, Algeria and Ethiopia, respectively.
Among the suspects are Rami Zamam, a Howard University dental student and his Facebook friend Waqar Hassan Khan – both believed to be of Pakistani descent.
According to Pakistani police, more than one of them left behind a farewell video, suggesting they had come to Pakistan for jihad, or holy war.
This entire story unfolded as these young Americans went missing and their family were in search of them, and when the family found some farwell videos suggesting they went for Jihad. The family contacted Nihad Awad, executive director of the Washington, DC-based the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) , and they contacted the FBI and turned over the footage and information about the missing men.
My question is this an attempt of CAIR to clean up its image? are they doing the right thing for the first time? or is it all part of the game?
Regardless, its good to know that 5 possible terrorists were taken off the streets, the sad thing is these are muslims born in the USA young 19-25, some are students and educated, one is becoming a dentist, yet they were brainwashed enough to hate the USA and the west. This is what we have to deal with, as far as muslims in the west, cant be trusted and may turn on us any time.
Thank God to Facebook and YouTube the FBI are digging more dirt on these terrorists.
I welcome the feedback.
