 Kentucky: Muslim traveled to Islamic State, attended jihad training camp, received weapons and physical training



He apparently determined to support the Islamic State while in Kentucky. Has his mosque been investigated? Why not? He might have learned there that the Islamic State was legitimate. Does anyone know? Does anyone care?

“Federal Trial Jury Finds Man Guilty on Multiple Terrorism Charges,” Justice Department, June 12, 2024:

Louisville, KY – After a seven-day trial, a federal jury in United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky found a Bowling Green, Kentucky man guilty of providing material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (“ISIS”), conspiring to provide material support to ISIS, and receiving military type training from ISIS. ISIS, a Salafi-jihadist group that conducts notorious terrorist attacks worldwide, that has been designated a “foreign terrorist organization” by the Secretary of State since 2004….

According to public filings and the evidence presented at trial, on June 3, 2014, Mirsad Hariz Adem Ramic, 34, of Bowling Green, Kentucky and two co-conspirators coordinated their departure from the United States, arriving separately in Istanbul, Turkey, abandoning the rest of their purchased travel itineraries in order to purchase tickets to fly to Gaziantep, Turkey. Gaziantep is located near the Turkey-Syrian border, and from there, Ramic and the two co-conspirators crossed into Syria and joined ISIS.

The evidence at trial established that after joining ISIS, Ramic attended an ISIS training camp, where he received military type training. A Photograph of Ramic, posted on social media, depicted him, among other things, wearing camouflage clothing and standing in front of a truck outfitted with an anti-aircraft gun and the ISIS flag.

After joining ISIS, Ramic and his co-conspirators remained in contact with each other and discussed, among other things, his use of an anti-aircraft weapon to shoot at planes. Ramic and his co-conspirators also discussed jihad, martyrdom, and fighting for ISIS. Ramic, a dual U.S.-Bosnian citizen, joined an ISIS fighting unit comprised primarily of Bosnian foreign fighters, and participated in ISIS’s offensive in Kobane, Syria.

Ramic has been in federal custody since December 2021, after being deported to the United States from Turkey….
