A U.S. citizen was charged by the U.S. Justice Department on July 3rd for attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

The defendant was identified by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as Mohammad Bailor Jalloh of Sterling, Virginia.

A native of Sierra Leone, Jalloh lived most of his life in the United States before his arrest this past weekend for terror related activities.

An avid supporter of the Al-Qaeda linked “Sheikh Anwar Al-Aulaqi,” Jalloh quit the U.S. National Guard after listening to the aforementioned’s sermons.

Jalloh planned on making “hijra” (migration) to Libya in 2016, where he was expected to join the Islamic State.

In addition to his plans overseas, Jalloh also purchased an assault rifle prior to his arrest in early July.

Jalloh is currently awaiting trial in a eastern Virginia federal court.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
