During his time in office, Barack Obama was a proud supporter of the Diversity Visa Lottery, but according to new reports, this lottery nearly cost him his life.
As CNS News reported, it was revealed that Diversity Visa Lottery winner Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev offered to kill the former president for ISIS once he entered our country. He said he would either assassinate him or launch a terrorist attack in New York City – whatever ISIS wanted him to do.
At the end on last year, Juraboev was sentenced to 15 years in prison, and New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill released a statement:
“The defendant in this case lived in Brooklyn while making plans to go to Syria as a support for a designated terrorist organization. In case it is not successful, the defendant schemed of bombing Coney Island or killing our president.”
It all began 7 years back…
“Juraboev, a national of Uzbekistan, was admitted to the United States as a diversity visa lottery recipient in 2011,” is what a report issued by the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security said.
Then-Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Bridget Rohde wrote to U.S. District Judge William Kuntz that Juraboev “initially came to the attention of the government with the online postings of his on an Uzbek-language social media website that propagated ISIS’s ideology and called for its Uzbek-speaking audience to join.”
In the summer of 2014, Juraboev posted an alarming message:
“Greetings! We are as well looking forward to pledging our allegiance and commit ourselves while not present there. I am currently in USA, but we don’t have any arms. However, is it possible to commit ourselves as dedicated martyrs anyway while here. I am trying to say is, to shoot Barack Obama and then get shot ourselves, will it do? That will strike fear in the hearts of the infidels, no doubt.”
FBI officials had tracked him down and interviewed him:
“He first acknowledged that he wrote and posted the message, which he characterized as the Uzbek-language site of ISIL. Then, he stated his belief in ISIL’s terrorist agenda, including the establishment by force of an Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria. In addition, Juraboev said that he would like to go to Syria to engage in violence on behalf of ISIL ‘if Allah wills,’ but at this moment, lacked the means to travel there. In case he had the opportunity to do so, he would harm the former president of the United States, Barack Obama. However, at this moment, he does not have the means or an imminent plan to do so.”
Juraboev was interviewed again a few days later:
“He did admit that he does not like Obama because of his role in killing Muslims through his support of Israel and the recent bombing of ISIL, but he would not kill him because of ill will towards him, but rather because of ‘Allah.’”
Later, Juraboev pleaded to conspiring to provide support to the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. This is ironic – one of Obama’s beloved Muslim migrants was hellbent on killing him when arriving in the US!
