7 charged with terrorism counts in North Carolina

Enemy Within, that's the only thing this can be called. Home grown Jihadi in the West will become a major factor in the Global Jihad that has been ongoing for 1400 years. In this age of instant communication and a shrinking world, Islamic aggression and colonization is has a greater impact than in years gone by.

RALEIGH, N.C. — To those they lived among, seven men accused of an intricate terrorism plot lived simply, quietly and kindly.

To neighbors and friends, Daniel Boyd was a father who stopped his work at noon each day for prayer. Dylan Boyd, Daniel's son, was a college student at North Carolina State University who until last year worked as a clinical services tech at Wake Med Hospital in Raleigh. Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan was a newlywed whose father owns a Raleigh car dealership.

To federal authorities, these men and four others plotted to kill themselves and others in the name of their religion. Their activities, tracked by FBI agents over three years and detailed in federal indictments released Monday, tell of an elaborate scheme hatched in a quiet Johnston County neighborhood and non-descript apartment complexes across Raleigh and Cary.
Those arrested include Daniel Patrick Boyd, 39, who was considered the ringleader of the group, and who fought with Afghan Muslims against the Soviets; Hysen Sherifi, 24; Anes Subasic, 33; Zakariya Boyd, 20; Dylan Boyd, 22; Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, 22; and Ziyad Yaghi, 21.

All but one of the defendants were American citizens. Sherifi was a native of Kosovo and was living in the United States legally.

All seven men are charged with conspiring to provide support to terrorists and conspiring to murder, kidnap, maim and injure persons abroad. Each is expected to have a detention hearing later this week. Until then, they are being held without bond. They have not been appointed lawyers. Efforts to reach their families were unsuccessful Monday night.

North Carolina: one more jihad suspect still at large

The search is still on for one more terrorist.

One more suspected jihadist (at least) is still out there, and meanwhile we are hearing about what a decent fellow Daniel Boyd is. North Carolina Jihad Plot
