Muslim Waves ISIS Flag, Makes Bomb Threats, in Chicago

Maybe he can declare his own Caliphate in his cell.


ISIS' Twitter mob did boast that its members were walking the streets of Chicago. One of them was driving down them.

 A Chicago man trailing an ISIS flag outside his car window is behind bars after leading cops on a chase and then telling officers the vehicle was rigged with explosives and would detonate if searched, police said.

Cops tried to pull over Emad Karakrah, 49, Wednesday morning after a caller noticed a suspicious vehicle around 9:15 a.m. on the city’s south side, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Karakrah apparently was proudly waving the black and white flag favored by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria terrorists.

The man took off, leading officers through several red lights before a second patrol car corralled the fleeing flag-bearer.

As he was taken into custody, Karakrah warned officers the car contained a bomb and would explode if search by police, the paper reported.

The threat prompted cops to bring in a bomb squad, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to search the supposedly rigged silver Pontiac, but nothing was found.

Clearly a genius. When you're in a traffic stop, the thing you most wanted to do is get DHS involved. This guy is almost smart enough to be ISIS. Maybe he can declare his own Caliphate in his cell.
