However, according to the website, the media is ignoring the story and Houston PD isn’t talking. Neither one of those claims seems all that implausible. It’s one thing to report ISIS beheading two Americans and an untold number of Syrians in Syria. It’s quite another to have confirmation that ISIS is operating on American soil.

Here’s an interview with the man who took the picture. Fast forward to the 10:22 mark as KPRC host Matt Patrick interviews Mike Kasper. The photo was reportedly taken at Jason’s Deli on west 34th and 290. At the 18:20 mark, Kasper said people in the Muslim community told him they knew who this guy was. Kasper said he went to the man’s facebook page and there were even more photos of him in ISIS apparel:
