Ohio: Man Converts To Islam, Has Sudden Urge To Blow Up State Capitol Building

The jihadist-wannabe’s shocked father couldn’t make sense of it since his son “never showed any signs of violence or anything.” That’s what sleepers do, dad. For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 9:5, “… fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war) …”

By Pete Williams and M. Alex Johnson, NBC News – “An Ohio man who allegedly wanted to set up an ISIS cell in the U.S. was arrested Wednesday and accused of planning to attack the U.S. Capitol. But U.S. officials told NBC News the man was dealing with a government informer working undercover the entire time and was never in a position to carry out his plan.

Christopher Lee Cornell, 20, of Green Township, near Cincinnati, was arrested after he bought two M-15 semi-automatic rifles and about 600 rounds of ammunition as the undercover operative watched, according to an FBI affidavit.

Officials said Cornell never bought any components for pipe bombs. “There was never a danger to the public,” an official told NBC News.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Jan. 22 in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati on charges of the attempted killing of a U.S. government officer and possession of a firearm in furtherance of an attempted crime of violence.

Cornell’s father, John Cornell, said the family was blindsided by the arrest.

‘He never showed any signs of violence or anything,’ John Cornell said of his son.

The FBI said the informer alerted authorities in August that Cornell — under an alias, Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah — was posting comments on Twitter in support of ISIS. Shortly after those posts began appearing, the FBI sent the operative to meet with him undercover.

… Cornell made it clear early on that he hoped to create an ISIS cell in the U.S., telling the undercover agent in a text message: ‘I believe we should meet up and make our own group in alliance with the Islamic State here and plan operations ourselves.'” Read more.

    Why is it that any new convert to Islam, gets that urge to kill or blow up [ become suicide bomber] in the name of Allah? I guess once they read Quran their evil mind can only think of kill in the name of Allah Sura 9:111

    Satan is the originator of blow up. He blew up the stars God made.

    I believe that this was CIA initiated propaganda at a time that the Congress was talking of not funding Homeland security. The timing was spot on.
