On Thursday, the Buffalo News reported that Mufid Elfgeeh, owner of MoJoe’s Famous Pizza and Chicken in Rochester, N.Y., admitted being a recruiter for the radical group ISIS.
According to the Buffalo News, Elfgeeh confessed he tried to recruit three people, including two FBI informants, to join and fight with the terrorist group overseas.
The Buffalo News added:
During Elfgeeh’s court appearance Thursday, U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford outlined, one by one, the numerous admissions in the plea deal and, at times, stopped to ask him if they were true.
Those admissions include the acknowledgment that, from December of 2013 until his arrest in May of last year, Elfgeeh used money and other resources to recruit two individuals and then assist them in making contact with an ISIS supporter in Yemen.

“You recruited these people to travel to Syria to join and fight with ISIS. Is that correct, Mr. Elfgeeh?” Wolford asked the defendant.
“Yes, Your Honor,” Elfgeeh answered.
As part of his guilty plea, Elfgeeh also admitted contacting a Chechen national in Turkey, a Jordanian national in Syria and two Yemeni nationals in Yemen in search of an ISIS member who could help his recruits make their way to Syria.
But it gets worse:
One person asked:
Here’s another. Earlier today, we reported that wealthy filmmaker Michael Moore arrogantly declared to the world that “we are all Muslim.”
So I have a question for Moore and others who seemingly want to turn a blind eye to Islamic terrorism: Do you stand with this person?
