The Ohio man arrested last week as he attempted to escape to Syria to join ISIS was so ready to become a jihadist that he was willing to cut off his own son’s head because they boy was a non-Muslim.

Ohio resident Robert C. McCollum, 38, who adopted some absurd Muslim name, was arrested last Friday at his apartment in the Cleveland, Ohio area. He told authorities what he intended to do[1] as a newly compliant Muslim…

On June 18, 2014, Al-Ghazi pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in a post on Facebook. Two days earlier, he shared a video on YouTube, titled “Stand Up and Pledge Allegiance to Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi,” who leads the terror group, the FBI complaint states.

In another conversation with an undercover informant, Al-Ghazi said he was convinced his faith allowed him to “behead Christians, Jews, and Atheists,” the testimony against the terror suspect said.

The FBI complaint also mentioned that Al-Ghazi was interested in attacking a police station but needed another “100 brothers” to pull off such an attack.

Al-Ghazi reportedly told another undercover informant, whom he believed was an ISIS soldier in Mosul, Iraq, that he was planning a Boston Marathon-style attack and needed assistance to find weapons and bomb-making materials.

In September, 2014, Al-Ghazi allegedly told an informant that if there were a war in the United States between Muslims and non-Muslims, “he would cut off the head of his non-Muslim son if necessary.”

The religion of peace strikes again.
