Home Grown Terrorists convicted of terrorism US citizen guilty of supporting overseas terror July 7, 2011 NEW YORK -- Betim Kaziu, 23, a homegrown terrorist was convicted on terrorism. A jury found him “guilty of conspiracy to provide material support to a terrorist organization, conspiracy to commit murder and other charges.” On November 4th he'll find out whether he'll spend the rest of his life behind bars. Kaziu wanted to join al Qaida anywhere but they wouldn’t have him. He then went to Kosovo and on the Albanian coastline he made a video of himself “described as "his goodbye, contemplating how he would soon depart for paradise — a reward for those who die a martyr." He was arrested before he could do any harm to himself or others. (Good-bye cruel world.) Kaziu’s plans didn’t come to fruition “But his case had many of the same themes of homegrown terrorism.” Kazui’s partner in crime Sulejah Hadzovic, 21 squealed on him for a reduced sentence of up to 15 years in prison. Hadzovic has known Kazui since grade school. They decided to go to Cairo in 2009 and kill American soldiers for abusing Muslims. While in Egypt the pair went to school and considered fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Palestine or Somalia against American troops. "We were upset at what was happening in places like Abu Ghraib prison and Guantanamo Bay, how they were humiliating and torturing Muslims there," Hadzovic testified. "It's what ultimately made us want to go and fight in jihad."
