Muslim Terrorist Wanted to Attack Synagogue, White House, With Rocket

Nothing to see here.

Just another case of Jihadus Interruptus. One of seemingly countless such cases that continue popping up continually.

 In a last-minute news conference, federal investigators announced that a joint terrorism task force, led by the FBI arrested Hasher Jallal Taheb, 21, of Cumming, after an investigation showed he wanted to attack several federal buildings in Washington, D.C.

According to the criminal complaint filed against Taheb in federal court, he wanted to travel overseas for “hijrai,” which is a term used to describe going to the territory controlled by ISIS.

After attempting to sell his car to help fund his travels, he told a confidential source that “he wished to conduct an attack in the United States against targets such as the White House and the Statue of Liberty.”

In December 2018, the complaint says Taheb met with an undercover agent and he showed the agent “a hand-drawn diagram of the ground floor of the West Wing of the White House” and “described his plan for attacking the West Wing.”

A week later, he met with the undercover agent again and “broadened his prospective targets in the Washington, D.C. area and indicated he wished to attack the Washington Monument, the White House, the Lincoln Memorial and a specific synagogue.”
