We’re constantly told a myth that American Muslims are more moderate and different from their jihadist co-religionists around the world. And, yet, we’re constantly surrounded by proof otherwise. The latest is this gem of an American citizen, Ali Abdullal Mayberry, of Texas. Strangely, even though he’s admitted recruiting for a terrorist cell, he’s not been charged with anything related to that. Why not? $50,000 bail is VERY low and makes it easy for this guy to obtain freedom.
Ali Abdullal Mayberry: Texas Muslim Robbed Cab Driver After Trying to Recruit Him for Terrorist Cell
A man accused of robbing a taxi driver at gunpoint, then fleeing from another cab stopped for a traffic violation, said he was trying to recruit the second driver into his terror cell, police said.
Ali Abdullal Mayberry, 29, was taken into custody late Wednesday and is being held at Bexar County Jail on one count of aggravated robbery. A judge set bail at $50,000.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, a taxi driver on Jan. 10 went to pick up a fare in the 10300 block of Royal Estate, where he had driven Mayberry the morning before. Mayberry did not have enough money and said he would call the driver for a ride again and pay both fares, the affidavit said, but he robbed the driver at gunpoint the next night.
Three days later, he was in another taxi when it was pulled over by an officer for a traffic violation. He left his gun in the backseat and ran but got caught, the affidavit states. Mayberry said he was trying to recruit the driver into his terror cell, but fled in fear of the driver’s own terror cell.
And that’s the latest installment of Your Day in Moderate Muslims of America.
