Default Meet ISIS leader Zulfi Hoxha...

..the son of an Albanian-American pizza-shop owner from New Jersey.

Quote:
First there’s the defunct Twitter profile, which at one point engaged in a conversation with a State Department counter-propaganda account about the Islamic State. Then there’s the fact that he used the social-networking site Paltalk, a communications platform reportedly popular among Western jihadis. But none of it compares to the ISIS propaganda video that, according to multiple law-enforcement officials, shows Hoxha beheading captured Kurdish soldiers. If they are right about his identity, Hoxha is the first American Islamic State member known to be beheading individuals in such a video.
Albanian ... Pizza shop... New Jersey. Sounds familiar.

Anyone remember the 'Fort Dix Six'? See
