The US government landed its second conviction of someone charged with supporting the Islamic State terrorist group after an Arizona man was found guilty of charges that he plotted last spring’s attack at a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas.
Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, an American-born Muslim convert, was accused of providing the guns used at the May 3 event in suburban Dallas
and hosting two Islamic State followers at his home to discuss the upcoming attack. He also was found guilty of providing support to the Islamic State. The verdict Thursday marked the second time a person was tried in the US on charges related to the terrorist group. A trial in New York ended a week ago with a guilty verdict against a US military veteran charged with attempting to join Islamic State.
