Raleigh, North Carolina is an unlikely place for a “wannabe jihadist” to settle but in the New America, Obama resettled thousands upon thousands of Muslims. We now know that the vetting wasn’t done properly on the people and fraud is rampant. It’s why we’re seeing more and more of these people called out and deported for lying about who they are and if they’re connected to terrorism. How many more are here just like the guy below?

American hypocrisy at its best. I was glad to see some of the comments on Youtube. Quite a few American's agree that it's hypocritical how their own government is acting. This comment made me laugh:"Please stop televising and detailing methods law enforcement agencies use to catch these piece of ****. It makes the jobs of our undercover men and women in service more difficult."It sure does make it difficult for you people to spy. Lol and good thing too. I wonder what this 'plea deal' means…

Why does Facebook have a page dedicated to freeing this wannabe terrorist who was nailed by the FBI for trying to provide material support and resources to al-Qaida?


Also connected to this page is a Facebook page called US is a Terrorist State


Immigrant Basit Javed Sheikh pleaded guilty to providing “material support and resources” to al-Qaida this Wednesday.

He was first charged on Nov. 5, 2013 but is just now possibly being deported from the U.S.?


The man’s online activity was first recognized by federal authorities way back in 2013. The wannabe jihadist became friends  with an undercover officer from the FBI in support of  jihad:

“In reality, both of these individuals were working with and for the FBI. Sheikh reached out to the individual he believed to be a Jahbat al-Nusrah member and expressed his desire to travel to Syria in order to ‘help the mujahideen … in any way I can.’”

“Ready to be a martyr” – Basit Javed Sheikh

News Observer reports:

Sheikh thought the FBI agent could help smuggle him from Lebanon into Syria. So Sheikh purchased a one-way ticket to Lebanon that was departing from Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Nov. 2, 2013.

Prosecutors say Sheikh obtained a boarding pass, checked in his luggage and went through the security screening. He was taken into custody before boarding the plane.

In early 2015, Sheikh appeared in a federal courtroom in Raleigh, where he argued that the United States should pay reparations for war deaths in Pakistan, Afghanistan and other parts of the Middle East – “100 camels worth of monetary compensation,” The News & Observer reported.

In a series of run-on sentences, he talked about cluster bombs, the pain he felt for Pakistanis killed in the conflict, President Barack Obama, the U.S. attorney general, his family, the government and his desire to be released from custody so he could go to the airport and “leave this country for good.”

“I have a right to travel the world,” Sheikh said in one of his many outbursts. “I was leaving this country. What’s your moral rationale for holding me?”

Sheikh apparently made three or more attempts to join the Syrian civil war, according to the FBI.

On Sept. 5, 2013, he booked a one-way flight to Istanbul for the next day. But he abandoned his plans, according to court documents, because he couldn’t reach his contact in Turkey, and he “could not muster the strength to leave his parents.”

Sheikh’s mother had said in previous hearings that her son suffers from anxiety and depression and spent most of his time before his arrest in her home in front of a computer screen.

Sheikh could face 15 years in prison.

US Attorney Robert Higdon said that Sheikh’s “interest in advancing an extremist ideology and his willingness to take steps to advance violence in support of that ideology is a chilling reminder of ongoing radicalization in our midst.
