Founder of radical Islamic website gets 2½ years


Yousef al-Khattab, 45, formerly Joseph Cohen, used ‘Revolution Muslim’ website to incite violence against Jews

Times of Israel

he founder of a radical Islamic website that praised figures like Osama bin Laden and Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan has been sentenced to 2½ years in prison for using the site to threaten Jewish groups.

Yousef al-Khattab, 45, had converted from Judaism and started the Revolution Muslim website in 2007. He was born Joseph Leonard Cohen and was brought up in a Jewish home in New Jersey and in Brooklyn.

Al-Khattab admitted posting articles encouraging readers to take unspecified action against Jewish leaders and publishing names and addresses of Jewish leaders and synagogues.

Al-Khattab pleaded guilty in US District Court in October to using his position as a leader of the ‘Revolution Muslim’ websites to incite violence against Jews.

Prosecutors say numerous people who have been convicted of terrorism-related offenses were readers of Revolution Muslim.

Defense lawyers say it is conjecture to assume people were inspired to plot attacks by Revolution Muslim.

    What about the other fake Muslims;

    Adam Ghadan, whose real name is Adam Pearlman
    Abu Al-Amrikee, whose real name is Zachary Chesser

    This is what happens when you try and squeeze a pineapple into a banana suit.
    This guy is/was no more Muslim than is any other Jewish spy against Islam.
    What a silly game they do play.

    Khattab only Allah knows his heart.

    However the other half of Revolution Muslim who is also in jail Younus Abdullah Muhammad (also a covert Spanish Background) is in my opinion sincere and was put in jail on secret bogus evidence just like Tarek Mehanna a pharmacist may they both be released from prison.Ameen

    Brother Younus has said their previous methods were not the best in defending the honor of Muslims (shouting and screaming against the injustices) and that it actually lent the enemies more credence and contributed to the narrative of the enemy.
    Keep in mind how this narrative is heavily promoted by Blair etc., the Zio-media etc.

    What is the narrative? Lendman in the article below puts it well:

    “Post-9/11, the gloves came off. Fear-mongering replaced reason. It’s used for political advantage. Muslims are maliciously targeted. They’re characterized as gun-toting terrorists.”

    Also from the article:
    “Justice Department prosecutors turn truth on its head. They lie. They target some of America’s best and brightest. They wage war on freedom. They spurn other democratic values.

    They want prominent voices silenced. They imprison or kill them. On the Progressive Radio News Hour, Professor Rodney Shakespeare praised Muhammad. He called him a powerful voice for truth.

    He explained what’s wrong with predatory money power. He did it with exceptional clarity. Shakespeare said his analysis was one of the best he heard. He was targeted to silence him. ”

    He’s INCITED VIOLENCE! SPECIFIC threats against people and property! He was doing it for years. He should have gotten 25 to life. Just another plant. If the government APPLIED THE LAW as it stands all of these clowns would dissapear.

    Relax Brendon we are aware of that……they should have just chattered about civil disobedience. Thankfully Younas Abdullah realized that mistake.
    Meanwhile you still have psychopathic leadership killing us violently over there!
