Jihad: The arrest of a 19-year-old American Muslim from the Chicago suburbs who allegedly tried to join the Islamic State raises new questions about the role of Muslim parents in fostering homegrown terror.
In a criminal complaint filed Monday, the FBI says that Mohammed Hamzah Khan left pro-IS writings and drawings out in common areas of the home where he lived with his parents.
The writings included a notebook with a page stating: “Islamic State in Iraq and Levant. Here to stay. We are the lions of war. … My nation, the dawn has emerged.” He also said that he hated America and its “filth,” and wanted to join the anti-American jihad.
