By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
A German court convicted a Syrian of attempting to defraud several ISIS terrorists.
The Syrian is referred to only as "Hassan A.". He asked the ISIS members for 180,000 Euros which is equivalent to $212,400. In return for the money Hassan agreed to plan and perpetrate a terror attack in Germany.
In the end no money was transferred - but Hassan A. was sentenced to two years of prison for trying to defraud ISIS.
Hassan A., a 39 year old a hairdresser, was found not guilty of planning a terror attack. He never planned on creating an attack - he was just trying to steal money from ISIS.
One has to laugh at the entire story. Should ISIS be protected from fraud and a flimflam? I'm not certain ... Should an illegal enterprise be protected from fraud? What do you think?
