20 year old Jonathan Xie from New Jersey has been arrested “on terror-related charges for allegedly seeking to provide material support to Hamas, and discussing the bombing of Trump Tower and the Israeli consulate in Manhattan, according to federal officials.” As with all jihadists, his hatred is deeply indoctrinated into him. Xie stated…
I want to shoot the pro-Israel demonstrators … you can get a gun and shoot your way through or use a vehicle and ram people … all you need is a gun or vehicle to go on a rampage … I do not care if security forces come after me, they will have to put a bullet in my head to stop me.
In Xie’s mind, the ‘bullet in his head’ will earn him martyrdom. Normative Islam instructs Islamic adherents to wage jihad against unbelievers and to strike terror into the hearts of disbelievers, “strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”.
The jihadist doctrine of hate and murder is still largely ignored despite the clear security threat it poses. All the while, people are fed the propaganda that “violence has nothing to do with Islam”.
“New Jersey man arrested for plotting terror attack at Trump Tower”, by Yaron Steinbuch, New York Post, May 22, 2019:
A New Jersey man was arrested Wednesday on terror-related charges for allegedly seeking to provide material support to Hamas, and discussing the bombing of Trump Tower and the Israeli consulate in Manhattan, according to federal officials.
Jonathan Xie, 20, of Basking Ridge, is charged with two counts of attempting to provide material support to a designated terrorist organization, two counts of making false statements, and one count of transmitting a threat in interstate commerce.
Xie also is accused of lying on his application to join the US Army and of making threats against pro-Israel groups, officials said.
According to federal documents, Xie appeared in an Instagram Live video in April wearing a black ski mask and claiming that he was against Zionism and the neo-liberal establishment.
When asked by someone in the video if he would go to Gaza and join Hamas, Xie replied, “Yes, if I could find a way.”
Later in the video, he displayed a Hamas flag and brandished a handgun.
“I’m gonna go to the [expletive] pro-Israel march and I’m going to shoot everybody,” he said.
