2 Muslims Arrested on Terrorism Charges In Virginia

A Virginia man who was allegedly attempting to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group and a man accused of helping him have been arrested.

Prosecutors said in a statement Saturday that 28-year-old Joseph Hassan Farrokh was arrested Friday at the airport in Richmond, Virginia. Officials said his ultimate destination was Syria. Officials also arrested 25-year-old Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan, who they say drove Farrokh to Richmond. Both men are from Woodbridge, Virginia.

  • This has become so routine – Muslims discovered to have terrorist intentions, plans or actions ongoing everywhere in the Western world – that it is hardly worth commenting on anymore.

    Its a good thing we have Trudeau to protect us here. Oh wait, The Peterborough Examiner website is excited that good Catholic Trudeau will be spending this Sunday morning with his muslim MP at the Peterborough mosque that was ravaged by Christian racists. Perhaps he can pose with the women there with bags over their heads, and do a sad selfie for the six Canadians killed by his religion of peace.

    Remember this one key point:

    They no longer represent Islam as soon as they decide to join ISIS.

    At least, that’s what Obo says.
