    Houston Man Convicted on Terrorism Charges

    HOUSTON – A 20-year-old U.S. citizen from Houston has entered a guilty plea to attempting to provide material support to Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick and Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers.

    Kaan Sercan Damlarkaya attempted to join and support ISIS from August 2017 until his arrest in December 2017. In addition to wanting to join ISIS, Damlarkaya also provided information to ISIS supporters about the use of machetes, homemade construction of an automatic weapon and how to build and use explosive materials.


    As part of his plans to join ISIS overseas, starting in approximately early August 2017, Damlarkaya had numerous conversations online with many individuals he believed to be fellow ISIS supporters. During these discussions, he described his intentions to travel overseas to fight for ISIS in Syria or Afghanistan. Damlarkaya added that if he was unsuccessful in joining ISIS overseas, he would conduct an on attack on non-Muslims in the United States and that it was his “dream” to be a martyr.


    Damalarkaya also provided information to other ISIS supporters, on at least two separate occasions, about ways to manufacture a bomb. Specifically, he described how to make explosives formula using triacetone triperoxide and cautioned the others to “take safety seriously while you make this” to be “useful until you can strike.”


    Damlarkaya further illustrated to ISIS supporters ways to construct an automatic weapon. He claimed he could buy a “GIANT machete for $15” and stated “a lot of us are poor… or we don't have experience. So not all of us can get a gun or make explosives, but we can afford to buy a $15 knife.” He claimed he slept with a machete under his pillow ready to use if law enforcement raided his house.


    When agents arrested Damlarkaya, they executed a search warrant at his residence and found a machete by his bed.


    U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen accepted the plea today and has set sentencing for Sept. 30, 2019. At that time, Damlarkaya faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a maximum $250,000 possible fine.

    He has been and will remain in custody pending that hearing.


    The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Alamdar Hamdani and Rob Jones are prosecuting the case along with DOJ Trial Attorneys Kevin Nunnally and Gregory Gonzalez of National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section.






    Out in ten years and primed to get to be the martyr he so desires. This one is a ticking time bomb. 10 years or even the full 20 won’t defuse it. Round up his family and his entire mosque and deport them to the sun.

    They could just make an effort to convert him to Christianity, though that's not PC these days.

    Rather see him converted to the non-living. Psychos that feel the need to mass murder innocents are beyond rehabilitation.

    The article did not state what "material support" he actually provided.

    All these muslims coming here are leading to a slippery slope of free speech issues.

    We need to do what Israel does with terrorists. Blow up family's home to a smoldering pile of concrete and bricks.


    That changes anybody's tune real fast when families are left with nothing.
