Former Leader of Jihadist Propaganda Group Faces Prison for Threatening Jews
This Guy again?
The U.S.-born co-founder of a Muslim extremist group that once threatened the creators of “South Park” over an episode depicting the Prophet Muhammad wearing a bear suit is now facing up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to issuing online threats against Jewish leaders.
Yousef al-Khattab, who entered the plea on Nov. 1, is the third person associated with the group Revolution Muslim to be convicted in federal court in Alexandria, Va., the Washington Post reported. His sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 7.
The Post reported that in court documents al-Khattab “admits encouraging readers to take unspecified action against Jewish leaders.”
