FBI Investigates Ohio Professor for Recruiting Students to ISIS
A college professor in Ohio is now under investigation for possible ties to the Islamic State.
According to reports, Julio “Assad” Pino, an associate professor of history at Kent State University, is accused of not just pledging allegiance to the terror group, but also of trying to recruit students to join ISIS, Steve Doocy said on Fox and Friends.
Pino has been under investigation for a year and a half.
According to FoxNews.com, the professor openly discussed the subject of “jihad,” and once called Israel “the spiritual heir to Nazism.”
Pino, who is a converted Muslim originally from Cuba, denies any connection to the terrorist network.
He told local media he has “never broken the law,” and believes the investigation may have been prompted by “rumors.”
“I can only imagine, given my past record at Kent State dealing with controversial issues about the Middle East, some people may be favorable or unfavorable,” said Pino.
“Rumors start, and that’s the only thing I can think would draw attention from a government agency.”
