19-Year-Old Planning To Join ISIS Arrested At O’Hare
The young man was sick of America and was headed to the Middle East to join ISIS.
Federal prosecutors announced on Monday that FBI agents arrested 19-year-old Mohammed Hamzah Khan, of suburban Bolingbrook, on Saturday evening before he boarded a flight to Istanbul, Turkey, via Vienna.
They accuse him of attempting to travel overseas to support terrorism which carries a maximum sentence of 15-years and Khan is also charged with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization…
Agents…found a handwritten three-page letter from Khan to his parents in which he informs them he was on his way to Syria and the Islamic State, saying he was upset his U.S. taxes were going to kill his ‘Muslim brothers and sisters,’ the complaint says.
‘We are all witness that the western societies are getting more immoral day by day,’ the letter says. ‘I do not want my kids being exposed to filth like this.’ He also invites his parents to join him one day.
