Just another Thursday in the “Immigrant Diversity is Wonderful” decline of the West.
(CNN) — A 30-year-old Uzbekistan national living in Boise, Idaho, was arrested Thursday on federal terrorism charges, the Justice Department said.
A grand jury in Boise returned a three-court indictment charging Fazliddin Kurbanov, 30, with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and one count of possessing an unregistered destructive device.
A grand jury in Salt Lake City, Utah, returned a separate indictment charging him with one count of distribution of information relating to explosives, destructive devices and weapons of mass destruction…
According to the Idaho indictment, he is alleged to have knowingly conspired with others to support to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, an American-designated foreign terrorist organization, between August and May.
He is accused of having provided support, believing that it was to be used in an “offense involving the use of a weapon of mass destruction,” the statement said.
In Utah, he is alleged to have taught and demonstrated how to make explosive devices, by showing Internet videos and conducting instructional shopping trips.
Kurbanov, who is in the United States legally, is expected to make an initial appearance in court in Boise on Friday.
Meanwhile, in Ware, MA, seven STEM graduate students (chemical engineering), all from Islamic countries with populaces notably hostile to the West, are caught (at midnight) trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir, the country’s largest reservoir water supply. They live in different parts of New England, but all showed up at midnight at the Reservoir, for ‘educational’ reasons:
WARE – Massachusetts State Police announced Tuesday that it has notified the FBI and state terrorism officials after learning that seven people stopped for trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir just after midnight Tuesday turned out to be from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore…
The Quabbin is the major water supplier for the eastern part of the state, but also supplies water to Chicopee, Wilbraham and part of South Hadley. When full, the Quabbin holds 412 billion gallons of water.
“Further investigation is being undertaken because of the late hour when they were observed, their curious explanation for why they wanted to see the reservoir and the fact that they were in an area marked no trespassing,” Procopio said.
No one is allowed inside Quabbin an hour after sunset.
The seven people will be summonsed to appear in Hampshire District Court on the trespassing complaint, he said.
Their names were not released, he said, citing a state police policy against releasing names of suspects who are summonsed prior to an initial court appearance.
The group of five men and two women were spotted by state police at about 12:30 Tuesday walking away from the reservoir toward two vehicles. A trooper stopped them and cited them for violating a posted no-trespassing zone.
The group told police they were recent college graduates. Some were residing in the Amherst – Northampton area, while others were from Cambridge and New York City. All said they studied chemical engineering and they came out to see the Quabbin because it was in line with their education and career interests, Procopio said.
State police determined there were no warrants, detainers or advisories against any of the seven with Interpol, the FBI’s National Crime Information Center or with any state law enforcement agencies.
