THEY’RE HERE: TX Muslim Pledges Allegiance To Islamic State In Front Of Cops

They’re here and they’re bold.


Video of a man in Houston pledging his allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) terror group as police escort him from a local mosque is causing concern among terrorism analysts who warn that the terror group is gaining adherents here in the United States.

A Muslim-American man identifying himself as Abdul-Rahman Baghdadi uploaded to YouTube late last month a video that appears to show him being escorted by police from a Houston-area mosque following a dispute over his wardrobe.

Baghdadi, who has expressed sympathy for IS (also known as ISIL and ISIS) on his Twitter feed, is seen on the video wearing a shirt bearing the flag commonly associated with the terror group. He then vocally expresses dedication to IS’ leader as he is removed from the mosque.

As two police officers escort Baghdadi from the mosque, he turns to a friend with a video camera and asks, “In front of the police officers, can you please record this.”

Baghdadi can then be seen raising his hand and pledging allegiance to notorious IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
