Active Duty Hawaii Soldier, Ikaika Erik Kang, Arrested for Trying to Provide Material Support & Training to ISIS
Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang Arrested in Hawaii, Pledging Material Support to ISIS …
34 year old Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang, a decorated veteran of two deployments to the Middle East, was arrested by an FBI SWAT team at the Schofield Barracks in Honolulu, Hawaii for trying to provide material support and training to ISIS. According to the criminal complaint, Kang “attempted to provide material support to ISIS by providing both classified military documents, and other sensitive but unclassified military documents, to persons he believed would pass the documents to ISIS.” The FBI said that no classified materials actually ended up in the hands of the terrorist group. Kang swore an oath of loyalty to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Saturday, shortly before his arrest. After doing so, Kang allegedly told an undercover agent that he wanted to use his rifle to “kill a bunch of people.”
His father is shocked by the allegations and believes his son may be suffering from PTSD from his tours overseas. According to his military service record, Ikaika Kang was deployed to Iraq in 2010, and served in Afghanistan in 2014.
An active duty Hawaii soldier who was arrested for allegedly trying to provide material support and training to the Islamic State told an undercover federal agent Saturday that he wanted to kill “a bunch of people.
A criminal complaint alleges that Ikaika Erik Kang, 34, was arrested at his Waipahu apartment Saturday, shortly after pledging his loyalty to ISIS and making the threatening statement.
“A probable cause arrest was made in the interest of public safety,” Honolulu FBI Special Agent in Charge Paul D. Delacourt said Monday, after Kang’s first appearance in federal court.
He added, “We believe that Kang was a lone actor and was not associated with others who present a threat to Hawaii.”
THE MANCHESTER TERROR BOMBING WAS A FAMILY AFFAIR … FATHER & BROTHER ARRESTED.
Two more arrests have been made in connection with the Manchester, England terror bombing. The father and brother of Salman Abedi, the suspected terrorist responsible for the suicide bombing that left 22 young individuals dead, were arrested in Libya. According to the Daily Mail, the terrorist suicide bomber’s family had ties to terror.
The family of the Manchester suicide bomber have links to terror networks around the world as it emerged the killer was in a German hotbed of Islamic extremists four days before the attack, it was revealed last night.
REMEMBER THE LIVES LOST BY THE HANDS OF RADICAL ISLAM
The father and younger brother of the Manchester Arena bomber have been arrested in Libya.
The Telegraph understands Hashem Abedi, 20, the brother of suspected attacker Salman Abedi, was arrested last night in the capital Tripoli by counterterrorism forces on suspicion of links to the Islamic State group.
Three armed vehicles arrived to take away their father, Ramadan Abedi, an administrative manager of the Central Security Force in Tripoli, late Wednesday afternoon.
A third brother, Ismail, has also been arrested after police raids in the UK. The family are believed to live between Manchester, where the children were born and grew up, and Libya.
The revelation comes as detectives probe a “network” linked to the Manchester suicide bomber as more details are beginning to emerge about Salman.
A Muslim community worker has said that members of the public called the police anti-terrorism hotline warning about the Manchester suicide bomber’s extreme and violent views several years ago.
It is also understood that Abedi was in Manchester earlier this year when he told people of the value of dying for a cause and made hardline statements about suicide operations and the conflict in Libya.
The community worker – who did not want to be identified – said two people who knew Salman Abedi at college made separate calls to the police.
WAPO: Manchester bombing probe expands to Germany amid raids, arrests in Britain.
Police used controlled explosives to carry out a raid in the early hours of Thursday while also arresting two male suspects in Manchester. The arrests brought to eight the number of people in British custody who are suspected of involvement in the attack.
While the nation observed a one-minute silence at the stroke of 11 a.m. to honor those who died in the attack, a bomb disposal unit was called to the southwest of Manchester to investigate a suspicious package. The police later said that the area had been “deemed safe.”
Meanwhile, a German security official told The Washington Post that the bomber, 22-year-old Salman Abedi, had been in Düsseldorf just four days before the bombing. The development signaled an expansion of an investigation that already has stretched to North Africa and continental Europe.
Authorities were investigating whether Abedi had possible contacts with extremists in Germany, including during a 2015 visit to Frankfurt, the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. Abedi was en route back to Britain from Istanbul when he stopped off in Düsseldorf.
A NOTE TO THE LUNATIC LEFT … NEWSFLASH, ISIS, RADICAL ISLAM DOES NOT WANT TO COEXIST!!!
Will those on the LEFT ever understand, or is liberalism really a mental disease? Uber-Lib Katie Perry says in the wake of the terrorist suicide bombing in Manchester, England that killed 22 individuals, “I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other, No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.” WOW, REALLY KATIE? So ISIS, a Muslim terrorist group of losers, purposely targets, attacks and murders 22 people, including an 8 year old, and you want no barriers, borders and we all just need to co-exist? Are you f*cking nuts? What part about ISIS and radical Islam does not want to co-exist as seen by their senseless and ruthless killings of people are you not understanding? Ariana Grande tweeted that she was feeling ‘Broken’ After Deadly Manchester Arena Bombing” and has suspended her tour.
Our fan bases should love each other? The terror attack took the lives of at least 22 people, many of them children, and wounded at least 59 more. Really, that is your take from the senseless and vicious murders at the hands of radical Islam?
In an interview Tuesday on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer suggested that people “unite” following the tragedy, which occurred as young fans and their parents were leaving the 21,000-seat arena at around 10:35 p.m. local time.
“Whatever we say behind people’s backs, the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other,” Perry said, adding, “No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.”
So Katie Perry is all for “no barriers and no borders.” If that is the case, then maybe she should get rid of her security detail, turn off the security systems at her home and take own any and all walls or fences she might have where she lives. Maybe the next time some Syrian or Middle East refugees are brought to America, the Feds can just bring them to Katie’s house to live. Put your money where you moth is Katie.

TERRORIST ATTACKS MANCHESTER, ENGLAND …
Twenty-two people are dead following a terrorist suicide bombing that took place in Manchester, England following an Ariana Grande concert. Police said the explosion took place outside the arena catching people as they exited. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the cowardly act.
The bomber also died when he detonated an improvised explosive device near one of the venue’s exits at 10:33 p.m. local time (5:33 p.m. ET) on Monday, according to authorities.
Officials said 59 other people were injured. Many others remained missing.
The incident sparked a nightlong search for loved ones as frantic parents tried to locate their children, and groups of friends scattered by the explosion sought each another.
Video shot inside the 21,000-capacity venue showed teenagers screaming as they made their way out amid a sea of pink balloons. Some fans were still wearing the pop star’s trademark kitten ears as they fled.
“We have been treating this as a terrorist incident,” Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins told reporters. “Our priority is to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network.”
