Zackie Boy gets 25 years

From The Washington Post:  (Emphasis mine)

A federal judge on Thursday sentenced a 21-year-old Northern Virginia man to 25 years in prison for trying to join an al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group in Somalia and making threats to the creators of TV’s “South Park” show over their depiction of the prophet Muhammad.

Zachary Adam Chesser of Oakton pleaded guilty in October to charges of providing material support to terrorists, communicating threats and soliciting crimes of violence in his case, which is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

The government had asked for the maximum sentence of 30 years in prison. As part of his plea, Chesser agreed to request no less than 20 years.

During an hourlong hearing, Chesser – who wore a beard and a green prison jumpsuit – told Alexandria U.S. District Judge Liam O’Grady he was remorseful. “Your honor, I accept full responsibility,” he said.

But O’Grady called Chesser an “extraordinarily energized traitor to your country.” (Darn straight.)

The defense had asked for some leniency in sentencing, suggesting that Chesser was a teenager when he committed his offenses. O’Grady, however, told Chesser “it’s amazing how quickly you became a danger. If anyone had been harmed, we’d be talking about a life sentence.”  (He should count his blessing that he wasn’t convicted of treason.)

The sentencing bookends the tale of a suburban Washington man friends described as “freakishly intelligent” and who became known to the FBI as a prolific Internet propagandist for al-Qaeda.

He was arrested in July, days after he and his wife drove with their infant son to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. He was stopped there after he tried to board a flight to Uganda before heading to Somalia, where he planned to join al-Shabaab, an Islamic terrorist group trying to oust Somalia’s government.

Chesser also admitted to making threats from April to July over the Internet to “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, saying they would “wind up like Theo Van Gogh.” The reference was to a Dutch filmmaker gunned down in 2004 after he attacked the treatment of women in Islamic society.

Chesser said his targets included a Florida man known as “JG,” a teenager in Mississippi and a young man from Texas who participated in an “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” group on Facebook.

Chesser also confessed to posting a link to 200 books on jihad and warfare, and to encouraging “fake operations” – such as placing bags that appear to be suspicious packages in public places – to desensitize federal agents to actual attacks.

How Chesser changed is something he and his family still seem to be grappling with, according to court filings. His father, stepmother and Chesser wrote letters to the judge in an attempt to influence his sentencing and explain his change in behavior.

As a kid, Chesser drifted from “one obsession to another,” according to court papers. At one time he was a vocal antiwar pacifist who grew his hair long and listened to heavy metal music. His interests varied, as he later studied Japanese and Buddhism. He joined a largely ethnic Korean breakdancing team.

In a Feb. 11 letter to the court, Chesser’s father, David, an economist and contractor for the U.S. Transportation Department, described him as an “intellectual, athletic and artistic” person who was “impulsive, impractical, naive and obstinately single-minded.” (Ok, it sounds to me like he was making a case against his son, not for him.  People with no self control who are out of touch with reality are not the type of people we can trust.)

At Oakton High School in Fairfax County, Chesser joined the freshman basketball and football teams and was involved in crew. In his spare time, his stepmother said he liked to play Xbox games and watch TV, including “South Park.”

In 2008, Chesser became a Muslim and, as a student at George Mason University, isolated himself from anyone who wasn’t Muslim at the college. He spent hours each day studying Islam, according to court papers. Chesser grew a beard, donned a traditional robe and later married the daughter of a Ugandan diplomat who had been raised as a Roman Catholic but converted to Islam three days after he met her through a local mosque. In November 2009, the couple had a son.  (Well that answers some of my questions.  I really feel for her parents.)

From his small apartment in Northern Virginia, Chesser – who became known online as “Abu Talhah” – spent hours on the computer, posting on radical Islamic Web sites, forums and blogs. He wrote about “Destroying the West” with a list of ideas that included filling tanker trucks with Ricin.

His blog, titled “themujahidblog.com,” was “dedicated to those who give their blood for [Islam] and “primarily devoted to spreading knowledge regarding Jihad and the Mujahideen,” according to court documents.

In a Dec. 10 letter to the court in which he takes responsibility for the allegations, Chesser describes himself as someone who felt like he had to “do everything to the fullest extent, whether it was how I dressed, who I spoke to, or how I prayed.” He goes on to say that after “about three months of being a practicing Muslim,” he was given a copy of lectures by the U.S.-born Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Aulaqi.  (So that excuses him, how exactly?)

The cleric has been linked to last year’s massacre at Fort Hood and an attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound plane on Christmas Day. Chesser said in his letter to the court that the “element of radicalism” in the papers “served as a gateway for me to other more extreme beliefs.” According to the FBI, Chesser exchanged e-mails with Aulaqi.

But Chesser said he’s since had a change of heart. In the Dec. 10 letter, he wrote that the jihad ideology he was drawn into “was contrary to everything I had grown up thinking and believing.” He noted that he was for a while, “both a practicing Muslim and a vegetarian.”  (Convenient to have a change of heard AFTER he was busted.  Just sayin’.)

He reconciled his beliefs, he wrote, “by convincing myself that if I went to fight jihad, I would be saving more lives even if it meant that others died. I understand now how preposterous that sounds, and I completely reject the idea that killing can be justified in the name of Islam or any religion.”

He said he was “ashamed and bewildered” by the allegations and described his 18 months of following a radical version of Islam as “a missing puzzle piece in my life.”

“I know that I will spend many years trying to understand why I followed the path that has led me here,” he wrote. “I only hope that through my actions now and in the future I can make up for what I have done.”

Seriously, I hope his change of heart is sincere.  Only time will answer that question.

ABC’s Moderate Muslim – RevolutionMuslim’s Sadiq Abdul Malik

Kudos to Acts17Apologetics who has a blog called “Answering Muslims”  for this video exposing the stupidity of ABC and Diane Sawyer.  Check out his blog for more great stuff!

American Terrorists

Was doing some research for Internet Antropologist and found this very informative article.

We (and that’s a collective “we” including many different people and many different websites) have been saying this for a LONG time.  The violent postings of terrorist wannabe’s on the internet need to be taken seriously.  That’s why we’re so adamant that YouTube, Facebook and other social networks abide by their posted TOS.  The less outlets the terrorists have to congregate in, the more likely than can be caught.

Jihad’s Ugly American Face

…On July 10, Chesser was barred from boarding a flight New York to Uganda. According to an affidavit filed in the case, he admitted his intention was to travel to Somalia to fight for al-Shabaab. Chesser also said he brought his infant son with him as a cover “to avoid detection of his intention to join Al-Shabaab in Somalia,” the affidavit said.

Brachman calls would-be terrorists who graduated from posting jihadist rhetoric on the Internet to attempting to carry it out “jihobbyists.”

It is a fallacy to believe that such people don’t constitute a security threat. “There are so many [jihadists] that have a big online footprint before they go violent,” Brachman told the IPT.

For example, Faisal Shahzad, who pled guilty in the May Times Square plot, reportedly blogged on jihadist websites dating back to 2006. Hasan corresponded with Awlaki and other radicals via the Internet prior to the Fort Hood killings. Colleen LaRose, AKA “Jihad Jane,” posted frequently in favor of jihad prior to her arrest on charges of providing material support to terrorism and plotting to kill a Swedish cartoonist for depicting the prophet Muhammad.

The trend of American jihadists moving from advocacy to armed violence is likely to accelerate. For years, jihadists had accepted the concept that some of them would engage in violence while others could help with online advocacy, Brachman said. But he senses that this outlook is shifting dramatically. The turning point was a December 30 suicide bombing in Khost, Afghanistan which killed seven CIA officials and a Jordanian official. The bomber was Humam al-Balawi, a double agent and a prolific jihadist blogger.

“That was a definitive moment for how jihobbyists thought of themselves,” Brachman told the IPT. In the wake of Balawi’s suicide attack, “the new mindset we’ve seen is that it’s no longer acceptable just to support violent jihad online.”


Jihad using the Internet and social media is now regarded “as a staging ground and not an end in itself,” Brachman said.

Go read the entire thing – it’s a who’s who of American terrorists.  And how they got there.

Linda G Richard on Trollwatch

Or, I see Vinnie everywhere!!  Oh nooooooo!

Bwaaahahaha!!

Linda G. Richard is running scared. She of Facebook hitlist fame is now turning on friends at Facebook because she thinks that they are Vinnie from Jawas! She’s pretty jumpy, that one!

Oh by all means!  Warn them!

LMAO!  They are eating their own!

Like the pictures your buds at RevolutionMuslim hotlinked from the Jawa Report?  Well tell those fun-loving terrorist buddies of yours to stop hotlinking and then their site won’t be filled up with such awful pictures!  LOL

Awwww!  Is poor little Umm Talhah wasting away whilst her momma’s boy is in jail?

Before we waste any sympathy on her, let’s remember that she allowed her husband to attempt to leave the country with their child, so that he could go join As-Shabaab in Somalia.  What, exactly, was the idiot going to do with the child once he got to the terrorist training camp?  Was he planning to just dump the kid in an orphanage somewhere, or worse, take him along on terrorist missions?

That question leaves you with a few possibilities…  One is that this was not a well-thought-through plan –which I don’t believe, because Zachie has demonstrated an ability to reason (although his conclusions are wrong) in many of his posts on the internet.  Or if it was well-planned, it’s even more chilling.  It means that the mother and father of this innocent child were willing to sacrifice his safety and welfare in order to fulfill their terrorist desires.  Talk about moral depravity – this takes the cake!

So no, we won’t be feeling sorry for wifey unless there’s some mitigating information that comes out — like maybe she turned her moron husband in for trying to take their kid to Somalia!  But until some information like that is revealed, fuggedaboutit.

Oh nooooes!  “These people” are running “amok!”  The sky is falling, the sky is falling!  Look Chicken Little, the person who started this targeting was YOU with your stupid “hitlist.”  And what was posted about “Sister Fatima” was not propaganda – she’s a terrorist wannabe who got busted and you can flap your idiot gums all you want to about that, but you can’t change the facts. And trust us, we’ll keep our eye on you AND your pals and learn everything we can.  That way we’ll be able to stop the next Colleen La Rose and Zachary Chesser.  Stick that in your hooka pipe and smoke it.



LOL  You are pathetic.  You’re all over the internet and you sign this with a fake name?  And oh – let’s not forget the mandatory disclaimer…

As IF you think this stupid disclaimer would protect you and your pals from consequences for the things that you post?  You really need to go back to law school and get some more education if you believe that one!

RevolutionMuslim has been punk’d

No kidding!  This is hilarious!  Apparently they had a post (don’t click the link unless you are prepared for gore) that was completely filled with what InternetAnthropologist called “dirty pictures” — they were pictures from the war that showed our guys in pain.  There are still a few there, but most of them look like this:

Apparently tinypic and imageshack don’t like people using their services for promoting terrorist agendas!  Good on them!  Maybe they could have a talk with YouTube and Blogger!

Tough Girl IslamicJihadi

The twit is at it again today…

Here’s a message for islamicjihaditwit and her friend Nasser:

It’s one thing to run off at the mouth and sound big on the interwebs – quite another to be tough in real life. Just ask Zachary Chesser — he talked a big game on RevolutionMuslim and Mujahiblog and God only knows where else, but when he was arrested for giving assistance to a terrorist organization he folded like a cheap suit.

IslamicJihadi thinks she’s so tough going after me and Pam Geller. Nice. Take on a bunch of women. REAL tough girl, she is.

Even the Canadians are laughing!

Zachary Chesser, Anwar Al-Awlaki and YouTube: Ah! Symbiosis!

I have been extremely busy with a bunch of personal stuff and haven’t had time to write.  I was actually taking a break with a pal last night and missed an interesting – and oh! so sweet! – bit of  news which I would normally have seen at the Jawa Report, but I got on email from a friend late last night.  It seems that RevolutionMuslim‘s South Park threatener Zachie-boy Chesser,  using his infant son as camouflage (what a typical terrorist thing to do huh?) tried to board a flight to Uganda with an ultimate goal of reaching Somalia to train and fight with al-Shabaab, which has ties to Al Qaeda.  There goes his “Father of the Year” award!

Apparently Zach has been ostracized by his family because of his extreme views and one report said that he had earlier tried to follow this path with his wifey Umm Talhah, but HER mommy stole her passport to prevent it.

His first attempt to join al-Shabab came in November, when he planned to travel with his wife to Kenya and make his way to Somalia, possibly by speedboat. But Chesser wrote in his journal – which he described as a “real-life ‘how-to guide’ on how to reach the fields of jihad” – that his mother-in-law took his wife’s passport and wouldn’t give it back, thwarting his plans.

I cannot tell you how funny I found that!  The big-man-on-campus Zachie, foiled by his mother-in-law!  (Go MOM!!!) Sounds like THAT would make an excellent South Park episode, doesn’t it?  This boy is a traitor of the first degree.  Let’s hope that the U.S. government gives him the proper punishment for being one.

The most disturbing part of the story to me is this – Zachie had had contact with none other the Al-Awlaki, the radical cleric who was recently added to the U.N.’s “Terror List” and is on the wanted dead or alive U.S. terror list.  Awlaki is in Yemen (reportedly.)  Just how would a cowardly cleric who won’t commit violence himself but incites others be able to influence a college aged kid who lives in Virginia?   The quick answer is “the internet:”

The terrorism-related charges against two Americans, both devotees of Mr. Awlaki, are part of a marked increase in homegrown extremism in the United States, often influenced by radical material on the Internet.

But no one seems to want to delve into the exact way that this happens on the internet.  I’ve been posting about this for a few years, and the folks at Quoth the Raven and The Jawa Report (among others) have been after it for WAY longer!  A quick and simple primer for how it happens is this:  the terrorist’s video tape their radical cleric and then the production wing of Al-Qaeda or whatever terrorist group they are with edits the video.  They then upload their propaganda – usually to a big uploading site (like megaupload or RapidShare.)  A little dweebie terrorist wannabe like Zachie Boy then goes to that site and downloads the video, uploads it to YouTube for free and easy video hosting and then embeds it in his blog so that all the other dweebie little terrorist wannabe’s can see it and get all jazzed up for jihad!  Seriously – if you want to see the dots connected for you, look here.

So just how easy is it to find Awlaki’s videos at YouTube?  Click here to see search results at YouTube — or try this one.  These videos are uploaded daily by users like DEENONLINE and Safallah7.  In Awlaki’s most recent foray into inciting the wannabes, he urges Muslims in the U.S. to wage jihad against the government.  The guy is serious and we need to take him seriously, because it’s rather obvious that his target audience does by the actions that they take upon being influenced by him.

What is it going to take for YouTube to take seriously their responsibility in this process? The FReeRepublic group and others have been flagging videos like crazy and YouTube has begrudgingly removed one or two videos here and there.  It seems that it goes through cycles.  Something happens like the arrest of JihadJane or the attempted bombing of a airline flight to Detroit and for a while they are fairly responsive to flaggings.  Then they sort of devolve into apathy until the next thing comes along.  NOT ACCEPTABLE! YouTube is aiding and abetting terrorists and their ability to recruit all over the world.  It’s time for them to get more aggressive about removing this stuff from their servers and STAY that way.  We’re flagging – it’s time for YouTube to hold up their end of the “community policing” terms-of-use bargain.

….

Update:

Just a thought.  Umm-Talhah should be charged with child endangerment unless she reported Zachie-boy’s hairbrained scheme to take their son to the land of Shabaab-Jihad.  Hope the authorities are on their game and I also hope “Hag-in-the-Bag’s” MOM gets custody – sounds like she’s one smart lady.  (Thanks to Urban Infidel for the lovely nickname for Zachie-boy’s wifey and also for the picture.)

They love me! They really, really love me!

Well folks, it appears I have made the list of folks who are being flagged by the islamo-loonies atFacebook.  And my crime?  I joined the facebook group “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day.”  It appears that RevolutionMuslim terrorist-wannabe Zackie-boy‘s right-hand-woman-welfare-chick-lawyer Linda G. Richards aka Taliba al-Quran aka Free Detainee thinks that those who would openly join a facebook group are somehow also trying to infiltrate a hirabist Facebook group.  Or something.  (Careful Zack – wifey might get jealous of you hanging out with such powerful women!)  Linda’s powers of logic and debate rival those of Vizzini in the movie Princess Bride. Just wait ’til she gets going! No doubt she’ll make an excellent lawyer! *cough*

Seriously – this woman is a looney bird of highest order.  She is living on welfare – that means your tax dollars and mine are supporting her lazy butt while she spends her busy, busy days flagging our facebook pages and circulating this stuff.  I think RevMuslim should get a refund on the law advice they are getting from this moron. Just saying.

FINALLY! A moderate Muslim against the Ground Zero mosque

Credit where credit’s due — I have asked several times where are the moderate Muslims standing up against radical Islamic terrorist agendas and here’s one…

Dr. Jasser has my respect.  I hope he has a bodyguard.  There will be some RevolutionMuslims who won’t be too happy with him I’d think.  I wonder how long it will be until they post a “warning” to him with the picture of a dead kaffir?  Anyone want to take bets?

And as for the question posed toward the end…who would fund it?  Now that’s an interesting one.  We DEFINITELY need transparency on that — and I mean three and four levels deep.

One less RevolutionMuslim polluting YouTube

AlQuranWaAlAhadeeth was linked all over RevolutionMuslim’s website.  I know they have mirror channels at YouTube.  Don’t worry Zachieboy — we’ll get them too.  Eventually.  No rest for the wicked.
