The Jewish Voice - - NEWS IN REVIEW -

(JNS.org) Two Is­raeli-Arab broth­ers have been ar­rested and in­dicted for sup­port­ing the Is­lamic State ter­ror group.

Mah­moud Jabarin, 25, and Naim Jabarin, 20, who hail from the pre­dom­i­nately Arab city of Umm al-Fahm, were ar­rested in July in a joint Is­rael Po­lice and Shin Bet op­er­a­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to the Shin Bet, au­thor­i­ties re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that Mah­moud Jabarin was plan­ning to travel to Syria to join Is­lamic State. Dur­ing a search of their res­i­dence, nu­mer­ous pho­to­graphs, videos and other Is­lamic State pro­pa­ganda was found, in ad­di­tion to a Carlo sub­ma­chine gun in the at­tic.

“The Shin Bet views Is­raelis who support the Is­lamic State or­ga­ni­za­tion as a se­ri­ous se­cu­rity threat, es­pe­cially those who are in con­tact with or­ga­ni­za­tion op­er­a­tives and de­sire to fight in its ranks,” the se­cu­rity agency said in a state­ment.
