Jewish-Born Jihadi Sent to Prison

The Jewish-born founder of RevolutionMuslim.com, a radical Islamic website, was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison by a US court last Friday for disseminating threats against Jewish organisations.

Youssef al-Khattab, 42 — born in New Jersey as Joseph Leonard Cohen — pleaded guilty in October last year to inciting terrorism, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In 2009, al-Khattab posted a video of violence in Gaza, together with the addresses of and directions to US Jewish groups and leaders, urging his followers to “deal with” the leaders in their own homes, NPR radio reported. Al-Khattab, whose Jewish parents live in Brooklyn, launched the website in 2007 “to encourage Muslims to support Osama bin Laden, Anwar Al Awlaki, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and others engaged in or espousing violent jihad,” according to the FBI.

Al-Khattab told NPR that he converted to Islam after travelling to the Middle East in his 20s. “I became a Muslim in Palestine,” he told the radio station.

Al-Khattab told NPR he was remorseful and would pay the price for his “stupidity”. He added: “I’m not a mujahid, I’m a failure.”

I sure hope HIS PARENTS are happy about the fact that they spent his ENTIRE CHILDHOOD trying to make MORE MONEY for themselves, so they could afford to send him to a college where he would then be taught to HATE AMERICA.

Hard to believe, but people like this animal are what you get when parents don’t have any time for their kid.

Do you know his story? I have not heard of him. If that is him mother, they seem to be close, at least in that picture. Is his father Palestinian or did he (MR. Guilty) just decide to divorce himself from all that is jewish at a certain point in his life? He must have known that at any time, his ‘new friends’ could have turned on him an actual Jew by Birth.
The definition of a useful idiot.

Reminds me a bit of Dave Chapelle’s skit about a black “white supremacist”.

I don't know if this has anything to do about this, but he was not from the friendly Lubavatcher Chassidic sect, but from the anti Israel Satamar Chassidic sect.

Maybe it is a short leap from being an anti Israeli Jew to being an antisemitic Muslim.

Incidentally, the History Channel did a hagiography on this creep. Maybe the History Channel can do their next puff piece on him from his prison cell (snicker).

” He must have known that at any time, his ‘new friends’ could have turned on him an actual Jew by Birth.
