U.S. Air Force Veteran Tairod Nathan Webster Pugh Charged with Attempting to Join Islamic State

The Qur'an commands Muslims to "fight those who do not believe in Allah" (9:29). Somehow, the media are confused when some Muslims actually decide to obey Allah.

Reuters—A U.S. Air Force veteran pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to trying to provide support for the Islamic State militant group.

Tairod Nathan Webster Pugh, of Neptune, New Jersey, entered his plea at a hearing in the federal court in Brooklyn, New York. U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis told attorneys to be ready for trial in July.

If convicted, Pugh could face up to 35 years in prison.

According to prosecutors, Pugh, 47, a former avionics instrument system specialist in the Air Force, tried to join Islamic State in January by traveling from Egypt to Turkey and trying to cross the border into Syria.

Turkish authorities sent him back to Egypt, which detained him and subsequently deported him to the United States, prosecutors said.

U.S. federal agents found recent Internet searches on Pugh's laptop and other devices for "borders controlled by Islamic State" and a propaganda video by the group, according to prosecutors.

Pugh served in the Air Force from 1986 to 1990 and converted to Islam after moving to San Antonio, Texas, in 1998, becoming "increasingly radical in his beliefs" in following years, according to a criminal complaint filed when he was arrested in January. (Continue Reading.)
To understand why Pugh became "radical in his beliefs" following his conversion, watch this:

The USA should not allow Islam within it's borders, no Muslims should be allowed to immigrate, No Islam Period, until all Islamic countries allow Christians to practice in their countries. Muslims say they want to escape the persecution and change their way of life. They are using Taqiyya, the Art of LYING to the Infidel to advance Satan's Islam. Until they mature and advance to Human stage, instead of remaining barbarians, the USA has no use for these rabid Pigs of Islam! And certainly no Muslims in our Military! Islam is the Syphilis of the Soul!

The West is toast, it seems like with this islamofascist-liberal alliance. The country is being destroyed from within at the highest level. This does not portend well for America at all. It is time to cry out to the Lord. We should be more vigilant than ever before.
