John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Texas Man Found Guilty of Conspiring to Support ISIS | OPA

A federal jury convicted a Dallas, Texas man on multiple terror charges, according to Justice Department officials.

Following a three-and-a-half day trial, Said Azzam Mohamad Rahim, a 42-year-old United States citizen, was convicted of one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization (FTO), one count of attempting to provide material support to an FTO, and six counts of making false statements involving international terrorism to federal authorities.

“Said Azzam Mohamad Rahim operated online to spread ISIS’s poisonous message of hate and violence,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers.  “Then he attempted to travel to support ISIS and he lied to the FBI when questioned about his activities.  With the jury’s guilty verdicts, he is being held accountable for his crimes.  I want to thank the prosecutors, agents, and analysts who are responsible for this result.”

“We will not allow radical terrorists motivated by dangerous ideologies to promote violence against innocent people,” said U.S. Attorney Nealy Cox.  “The Justice Department is committed to combatting terror at home and abroad.”

According to evidence presented at trial, Mr. Rahim moderated a social media channel dedicated to recruiting fighters for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS, a State Department designated terror group.

Mr. Rahim used Zello, a push-to-talk direct messaging application, to promote violence in ISIS’s name, prosecutors said.

Records showed he spent hours on Zello’s “State of the Islamic Caliphate” channel, where he touted acts of terror under various monikers:

“Kill and do not consult anyone,” he said in July 2016.  “Kill by any means, smash his head on the wall, spit in his face, burn — I mean anything, anything – poison, anything.”

“Brothers!  What are you waiting for?,” he said a month later.  “Mobilize and perform jihad for the cause of Allah…. Some of the brothers mobilized from this channel, they were amongst us. ”

He even praised several terrorist attacks after the fact.

“I was happy for this act,” Rahim said after a truck barreled into a crowd of people in Nice, France, killing 86.  “Those dogs.”

Mr. Rahim was arrested on March 5, 2017 at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, where he was attempting to board a flight to Amman, Jordan.  Asked by agents if he had ever supported ISIS, advocated travel for the purposes of jihad, promoted violence on ISIS’s behalf, or encouraged anyone to kill infidels at the urging of ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed Al Adnani, Mr. Rahim said “no.”

Rahim now faces up to 20 years in federal prison for each material support count and eight years for each false statement count, for a total of up to 88 years imprisonment.
