‘He’s a grown man, just like you’: Father of captured American-born ISIS fighter, 26, ‘hits camerawoman’ and scolds reporters outside family’s Virginia home

The father of an American-born ISIS fighter lashed out at reporters outside of the family’s Virginia home just hours after news broke of his son’s arrest.

Kurdish fighters announced Monday that they had captured an ISIS fighter trying to defect, and identified him as 26-year-old Mohammed Jamal Amin.

However, the driver’s license and credit card the fighter was carrying identify him as Mohamad Jamal Khweis from Alexandria, Virginia.

    Trump is right.
    Go after their families.
    Arrest them, fine them the totality of their wealth, and deport them.

      If the parents had knowledge of the situation and hid this from law enforcement, they should be charged with aiding and abetting. If they can be shown to have encouraged their sons behavior they should be charged with treason along with their son.

        There was a bomb factory inside of their house and the mother came over regularly to babysit their kid. The parents knew, and if the parents knew, then it’s a real safe assumption that all the rest of the extended family knew. That wedding was a sham from the get go, as would be apparent to anyone from a society that is so heavily invested in the concept of cousin marriage.
        They all knew something was up and either helped conceal it or knew and said nothing. They should all be in prison and not enjoying any measure of constitutional protections.

        Throw them in prison, take their money, deport them all, strip their citizenships for even their children.

          Which terrorists family are you taking about?

          • lolwut?

            San Bernardino.

            That’s what I thought too.

            I’m sure the parents kept quite because they were afraid of appearing like racist islamophobes.

            Seriously, if the family had knowledge and withheld it they should be charged with a crime.

            If they encouraged the so-called radical behavior they should be charged with a serious crime such as sedition.

    This morning on TV, a businessman was asked whether he trusted Trump to follow through with his promises. He said the one thing you can’t fake is kids, and Trump has fine hard-working kids who are a credit to him.

    By that standard, the father who hit the camera-woman doesn’t measure up well.

  • rufusrastasjohnsonbrown

    Interesting that he went after and hit a camera ‘woman’. Just as Interesting that the camera ‘men’ just stood around and watched.

    I kinda like the Mail Online. It’s an ass-kicking newspaper that goes after nasty Islamists.

    His Father identifies himself as Palestinian. His mother said, “”We thought he was in Canada lately,” “We also know he has been traveling to Turkey.”
    Oh, right then, in Canada and just slipped by Turkey from there. Didn’t know that was so convenient. Can anybody from Canada confirm that?

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Oh yeah, we’re right next door to Turkey. No problem. /sarc :rolleyes

    The nut hasn’t fallen far from the tree.

    His alias Mohamad Jamal Khweis – “khweis” means “okay” or “good”.

  • lolwut?

    Sounds to me like the other son made a veiled threat he was going to do something.
