Islam Said Natsheh came to the FBI’s attention after sharing ISIS propaganda on Facebook and Twitter. In an interview with FBI agents, Natsheh said he had changed his ways. Spanish authorities then notified the FBI that Natsheh was in contact with a Spanish woman who had attempted to join ISIS. Agents discovered that Natsheh had purchased airline tickets to Turkey. Law enforcement officials stopped Natsheh at the boarding gate at San Francisco International Airport, and Natsheh admitted that he intended to travel to Syria to join ISIS.
