“WHEN IDEOLOGUES (PLAN TO) ATTACK”
—Author: Marisa Urgo

SNIPPET: “Today, the FBI arrested for a second time Tarek Mehanna, a 27 year old Massachusetts man. This time Mehanna was arrested on various terrorism-related charges associated with a plot to attack shopping malls. Mehanna’s plot appears to have been more “aspirational” rather than operational.

However, the Mehanna arrest is significant, because he was a member of a prominent circle of young Salafist-Jihadists living in the United States. His blog was primarily dedicated to Salafist-Jihadist thought, and it was regularly linked back on by other members of the circle. Those members remain very active online, blogging and sharing jihadi media. They are for the most part the virtual epicenter of Salafist-Jihadism in the United States.”

“UNDERSTANDING TEREK MEHANNA”

SNIPPET: “What is important to understand about Terek Mehanna is how his online activities - operating his own website, translating key jihadi texts in to English, and distributing videos - were manifestations of his underlying ambition to eventually participate in real-world terrorism, an ambition which is amply demonstrated by the activities described in the criminal complaint against him.”
