South Carolina: Devout Muslim arrested for attempting to join ISIS had previous arrest in 2015 jihad plot

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


He was supposed to be in juvenile detention until he was 21, but was let out three years early, and went right back to jihad. Our prison system, like that of Britain, has become a recruiting center for jihad terror. This has to stop.

“S.C. man arrested for attempting to join ISIS had previous arrest in 2015 plot,” WCSC, March 31, 2017:

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) – An 18-year-old Ladson man appeared in federal court Friday following his arrest on charges he intended to join ISIS.

Zakaryia Abdin was arrested at the Charleston International Airport Thursday night, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Lance Crick. Abdin was arrested by special agents of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force before he boarded an outbound flight.

Abdin is accused of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, a designated foreign terrorist organization, Crick said. The charge is based on Abdin’s alleged attempt to travel overseas to join the terrorist organization, he said.

Sixteenth Circuit Solicitor Kevin Brackett said Abdin, whose family is from Syria, was charged in 2015 with being in possession of a firearm unlawfully.

He was 16 at the time he was charged in that incident, Brackett said. He said reports on his arrest in 2015 did not identify the teen because he was a juvenile.

The investigation revealed Abdin had been talking with a person in North Carolina and was planning to use one or two firearms to rob a gun shot to get larger weapons, Bracket said. Those larger weapons would then be used to attack a North Carolina military installation, investigators said, adding the pair planned to leave the United States and go to the Middle East and join ISIS.

Brackett said Abdin could not be charged with a federal crime in the 2015 case because of his age. But Brackett said his office worked closely with law enforcement to seek a strong sentence.

“In court, we explained to judge the gravity of the offense,” Brackett said. “We were deeply concerned about the safety of the public if he got out.”

Brackett said Abdin told the court he was troubled, that his father had died, and swore this was an isolated incident, adding he had just been confused. He promised they wouldn’t hear from him again, Brackett said.

“Everybody hopes that people learn the error of their ways, you want to hope and believe it was a one-off, isolated incident, that he’s moving on with his life, becoming a productive member of the community,” Brackett said.

The judge sentenced Abdin to the maximum punishment, an indeterminate sentence that would keep him behind bars until his 21st birthday, Brackett said.

Abdin served time at the juvenile justice facility in Columbia but was paroled a few months ago, Brackett said. He said he and York Police Chief Andy Robinson had strong objections to Abdin’s parole….
