#NotAllMuslims Arrested In Brooklyn For Trying To Join ISIS

Font Size:



The FBI has taken 3 Brooklyn men into custody for allegedly plotting to join ISIS and help the terror group in the U.S. if they could not get overseas…

The men have been identified as Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, 24, a resident of Brooklyn and a citizen of Uzbekistan; Akhror Saidakhmetov, 19, a resident of Brooklyn and a citizen of Kazakhstan; and Abror Habibov, 30, a resident of Brooklyn and a citizen of Uzbekistan.

Officials say Juraboev and Saidakhmetov first came to the attention of law enforcement during the summer of 2014 after they expressed their online support for the establishment by force of an Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria.

That’s odd. We know these guys aren’t motivated by their religious beliefs, because real Muslims don’t join ISIS. If you think they do, you’re a racist and an Islamophobe. Therefore, their motives are unknown and unknowable.

Has the backlash over these arrests started yet? I’m sure some enterprising reporter could gather up quotes from worried Muslims. They’re the real victims here, as always.
