Pakistani doctor who worked at Mayo Clinic Arrested in Minneapolis trying to join the Islamic State

posted by Christopher W. Holton

Muhammad Masood, a Pakistani physician, who at one time had been a Mayo Clinic research coordinator, was arrested on Thursday 19 March in Minneapolis on a terrorism charge, after he told FBI informants that he had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and intended to carry out individual jihad attacks here in the United States.

This certainly is yet another case that flies in the face of the discredited theory that terrorists are driven to jihad by poverty and lack of opportunity…

This is also certainly not the first case of a physician actively joining a Jihadist organization. After all, Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri is a physician by trade and a former medical school professor. Additionally on 30 June 2007, Bilal Abdullah, a British-born Muslim doctor took part in the failed attack on Glasgow airport, for which he was sent to prison for no less than 32 years.
