CLEVELAND, Ohio. (NBC) – An Ohio man has been charged him with trying to provide material support to the terror group ISIS.
Authorities say Amir Said Abdul Rahman Al-Ghazi was arrested in the Cleveland suburb of North Olmsted while trying to buy an AK-47 assault rifle from an undercover FBI agent.
According to court documents, Al-Ghazi started using social media sites last year to recruit people to ISIS.
And while chatting online with FBI sources, he allegedly said he wanted to stage terrorist attacks in the u-s, including the derailment of a train.
He reportedly told an FBI source that he was not interested in becoming a martyr, but that he would be willing to cut off the head of his non-Muslim son if Muslims were to go to war in the United States.
