Four Southern California men aimed to join 'violent jihad' to kill Americans overseas, enlist in Al Qaeda, Taliban in Afghanistan

Jihad in America.  No matter how much the administration denies it, the global jihad is hard at work following the Quranic mandate to impose Sharia on all of humanity.  We see more and more Muslim immigrants becoming citizens only to take advantage of America's bounty and then turn on their host to commit mass murder and mayhem in the name of Islam.  At the same time we also see more native born Americans converting to Islam and waging jihad.

Where will you be when the jihad hits the street?

Four men with links to Southern California have been charged with plotting to join Al Qaeda and the Taliban to attend terrorist training and engage in “violent jihad” against Americans, the FBI said Monday night.

The group's alleged ringleader, Sohiel Omar Kabir, 34, allegedly influenced co-defendants Miguel Santana and Ralph Deleon to convert to “radical and violent Islamic doctrine” in 2010, prosecutors said.

Kabir, a former resident of Pomona, Calif., and naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Afghanistan, recently traveled to Kabul to arrange the group’s terrorist training, according to a complaint unsealed Monday in federal court in Riverside.

Santana, 21, lives in Upland, Calif., and is a permanent resident who was born in Mexico and has an application for citizenship pending in the U.S.

Deleon, 23, is a permanent resident living in Ontario, Calif., who was born in the Philippines.

The complaint alleges that in January, Deleon “liked” a video posted on Kabir’s Facebook page that “appears to be a prayer for the success of the mujahideen and features various photos including Al-Qa’ida leaders Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al Zawahiri, (the) 9/11 attacks, bloodied adults and children, and Islamic fighters.”

In February, Santana said he wanted to “help the brothers pave the way to Jerusalem,” the complaint states.

Prosecutors believe Santana was referring to a fatwa issued by Al Qaeda directing followers to retake control of the Al-Aqsa Mosque located in Jerusalem.

The criminal complaint alleges the men intended to meet in Afghanistan in the near future and initially join “the students,” meaning the Taliban, before joining “the professors,” meaning Al Qaeda.

In September, the group recruited Riverside resident Arifeen Gojali, 21, to join their cause.
