Muslim Teen Caught Urging The Beheading Of U.S. Military Members

Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz, 19, was hit with terrorism charges after he tried to terrorize 100 U.S. military members by posting their private information and addresses online, telling his Muslim followers to go “behead them." In addition, he used used 57 different Twitter accounts to threaten civilians and politicians, including promising to behead President Barack Obama.

Aziz told his followers to “kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their street thinking that they are safe." He then wrote of Pennsylvania's "light" gun laws.

In December 2015, federal anti-terror agents broke through his parents' door to pin him to the ground and arrest him. He was shocked. The problem was he decided to go after U.S. service members, otherwise, he might have faced little jail time. On Wednesday in a federal court in Harrisburg, the prosecution had enough evidence needed to indict him on terrorism charges for releasing the names, home addresses, photographs, and military rankings of American soldiers.

The FBI also found out that Aziz sent 115 messages to Islamic State fighters in May 2015. Assistant Attorney General John Carlin said, “A prior physical search of Aziz’s residence also revealed a tactical-style backpack in his closet, which contained high-capacity weapons magazines, ammunition, a knife, and other survival items. The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism, and we will remain vigilant in our efforts to hold accountable any and all those who seek to provide material support to terrorists, and to disrupt potential attacks in the United States before they happen.”
