Indicted Somali Refugees were hitting the gym to get stronger for beheadings
The Department of Justice has announced that two Somalian refugees were indicted after trying to join ISIS in the Sinai Peninsula, per a report by Katie Pavlich at Townhall. Based on the indictment, the two men were going to the gym to exercise and get stronger so it was a lot easier to behead someone. Their names are Ahmed Mahad Mohamed and Abdi Yemani Hussein.
It remains unclear if the two men indicted took advantage of a summer deal or what gym they signed up for. They were, however, living in Tucson.
As stated on Pavlich's report:
On or about June 26, 2019, MOHAMED told the UC (undercover FBI agent) that he and 'abu' jihad started going to the gym so they could get stronger and 'behad those kuffar,'" the indictment states. "MOHAMED indicated that he wanted to make hijrah and asked for help from the UC. MOHAMED state that he was 'a lion bu killing the kuffar and behading.' In addition, MOHAMED told the UC, 'if I go to Syria I want to be the behading person wallahi this kuffar I want to kill them so many I am thirsty their blood.' MOHAMED indicated he wanted to travel to Syria, Egypt and/or Iraq.
According to information provided by the Department of Homeland Security, MOHAMED is a 21-year-old lawful permanent resident of the United States who currently resides in Tucson, Arizona, and originally entered the United States as a refugee from Somalia. HUSSEIN is a 20-year-old refugee from Somali who also currently resides in Tucson, Arizona," the indictment continues. "Over the past several months, MOHAMED and HUSSEIN have repeatedly demonstrated their allegiance to and support for ISIS, and have discussed their desire and plans for joining ISIS overseas, in the course of various electronic and audio recorded conversations with an undercover FBI Agent.
