NEW YORK (AP) — Samy el-Goarany seemed to have it all.
The son of a successful real estate broker, he lived in a big house with an indoor swimming pool on two acres in New York’s bucolic Hudson Valley. As a teenager, he got into a good college in Manhattan and seemed set to follow his father into real estate.
Then he went off to Syria and joined the Islamic State group.
el-Goarany was the son of an Egyptian civil engineer who became a developer and real estate broker in New York after emigrating to the U.S. in the 1980s. He lived in a town of fewer than 5,000 people about a 90-minute drive north of New York City.
…he was killed in fighting a year ago
At least one lawyer thinks his death is a ruse. Either way, the answer is banning Muslim immigration to the U.S.
