Hamas-CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood groups in the U.S. constantly admonish us that the Muslims in the U.S. are "moderate," and only "Islamophobes" think otherwise. But news like these indictments keep showing how false that is. And yet no mosques or Islamic organizations in the U.S. have any program of any kind to prevent the "radicalization" of young Muslims, and no law enforcement or government officials are calling them on that. Madness.
3 US citizens accused of trying to join al Qaeda indicted in California by Alex Dobuzinskis, Reuters / November 28, 2012
Three men accused of plotting to join up with al Qaeda and Taliban militants for training in Afghanistan were indicted on Wednesday in California in a move that could allow prosecutors to move to trial more quickly.But the four-page indictment, returned by a grand jury in Riverside, offered few details beyond those contained in a criminal complaint filed earlier this month against the men, all U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
The indictment charged Ralph Kenneth Deleon, 23, Miguel Alejandro Vidriales Santana, 21, and Arifeen David Gojali, 21, with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, the same charge contained in the complaint.
The filing of the indictment allows federal prosecutors to skip a preliminary hearing in which they would lay out their case and a judge would determine if there was enough evidence to merit a trial. The men each face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
