Islamic Extremist Who Threatened ‘South Park’ Writers Sentenced
A New York man who was involved in making online threats to the writers of the South Park television series, as well as other writers critical of Islam, was sentenced to 11 ½ years in prison on June 22.
Jesse Morton, who is also called Younus Abdullah Muhammed, 33, was sentenced to 138 months in prison in a federal courthouse in Alexandria, VA for using his position as a leader of the “Revolution Muslim” organization’s Internet sites to conspire to solicit murder, make threatening communications, and use the Internet to place others in fear.
Morton pleaded guilty to the charges in February 9.
According to court records, in 2007, Morton founded Revolution Muslim, an organization that operated Internet platforms and websites that supported violent extremism. Morton and his associates used the organization’s websites to encourage Muslims to engage in violence against those they believed to be enemies of Islam and to support Osama bin Laden, Anwar Al-Awlaki, al Qaeda, the Taliban, and others
