Two Islamist Terrorists Convicted in Texas

The Clarion Project

Two Islamist terrorists were convicted in Texas due to efforts by the FBI:

Mohammed Ibrahim Ahmed

Mohamed Ibrahim Ahmed, 45, an Ethiopian national born in Eretria, was already in prison for terror offenses and convicted on additional charges of recruiting fellow inmates to join ISIS, training them in prison and planning future terrorist attacks for them to carry out.

Ahmed recruited at least five inmates to join ISIS and to conduct terrorist acts in the United States after their release from prison, telling them that he was aligned with ISIS and also supported al-Shabaab and al-Qaeda.

From prison, he celebrated the suicide bombing at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England in May 2017, which killed 22 and wounded 59.

Ahmed wanted the inmates he was recruiting to either travel abroad to join ISIS, or create “sleeper cells” within the United States to carry out attacks.

He provided would-be recruits with a training manual on how to carry out violent jihad. The manual covered topics including “How to carry out guerilla war,” “Selection of human targets” and “How to carry out assassinations.”
