An ISIS-supporting Arizona man who was arrested after a dramatic confrontation with a police officer is asking a judge to release him from jail before his trial on charges of aggravated assault and terrorism.
Ismail Hamed initiated a dramatic confrontation with a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Deputy after making a call to the deputy in which he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. After a police officer arrived at his location in Fountain Hills, Arizona, Hamed began throwing rocks at the officer and brandishing a knife. He was shot by the officer after approaching him, and entered police custody after receiving treatment at an area hospital.
The entire shocking incident and Hamed’s phone call to the police in which he pledged allegiance to ISIS were caught on tape. Watch here:
“I’m owing my allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria… I just want a cop to come real quick, and I want to deal with them.”
Now, Hamed’s attorney Mark Mendoza is asking an Arizona judge to release the 18-year old man, who was previously a high school student, from jail. He claimed that Hamed is having a difficult time in jail. “During his incarceration [Hamed] has endured many difficulties being away from his family, including isolation, stress/anxiety, and harassment from others in the jail,” the lawyer claimed in a court filing.
It’s unsurprising that some of Arizona’s jail inmates might not take too kindly to an ISIS sympathizer in their midsts, but it’s a bit alarming that Hamed’s lawyers think he’s going to receive a ‘get-out-of-jail free’ card after orchestrating a poorly thought through terrorist plot. It’s possible Hamed’s plot was devised with the hopes of achieving martyrdom, but now the highly disturbed young man will face a lengthy prison sentence instead.
Biden’s Syria Strikes Killed at Least 22 People – More than Both of Trump’s Strikes on the Country
Biden’s airstrike killed 22 people.
President Joe Biden has surpassed President Trump’s body-count for US involvement in Syria’s bloody and seemingly endless civil war- killing more people in one batch of airstrikes than were killed in both of Trump’s military actions targeting Syrian government forces in the country in 2017 and 2018.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has indicated that 22 pro-Assad militia fighters were killed in the airstrike, which reportedly struck three trucks after they crossed the Iraq-Syria border. The airstrikes were staged in response to missile attacks that killed an international contractor and injured US military service members earlier this month, with the Biden administration pointing to Iranian backing of Shia militias in both Iraq and Syria.
Trump’s first missile strike on Syrian government facilities in response to a chemical weapons incident in 2017. Ranges of causalities range from nine to 16 deaths. President Trump oversaw a far more aggressive military campaign to destroy the ISIS caliphate, while dealing with the Syrian government in a more conservative and measured fashion.
Observers maintain that President Trump’s second missile strike on the Syrian government didn’t even kill anyone, with the Syrian government describing six soldiers and three civilians as having been injured in the series of missile strikes that targeted scientific and alleged chemical munitions facilities.
President Trump was in office for four years and avoided inflicting casualties of the kind Biden has in just over a month- on a questionable intelligence basis. Biden’s action may suggest his administration intends to further pursue aggressive action and regime change in Syria, a long-sought priority of the western globalist establishment.
Someone should ask @PressSec her own question verbatim about Biden’s Syria bombing at tomorrow’s briefing (and while the context of her tweet was Trump’s bombing of Syrian forces, the question still applies): https://t.co/9ebYPywQPB

This military action was by every indication more lethal and serious than anything Trump implemented in Syria or Iraq during his presidency- including the killing of Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani. The corporate-establishment media has largely glossed over the event, refusing to scrutinize the questionable intelligence behind the consequential airstrikes.
