South Park Jihadist Faces Prison in Virginia Court

by Lewis Loflin

At issue: Faces up to 15 years in prison when sentenced; Because "South Park" depiction of Prophet Mohammad in bear suit offends Muslims; Encouraged other Muslims to attack the show's writers.

Jesse Curtis Morton, 33, of Brooklyn, N.Y., also known as Younus Abdullah Mohammad, encouraged jihadist to attack the writers of "South Park" for an episode that featured the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit, said prosecutors in Alexandria, VA. He was arrested in Rabat, Morocco, in 2011 and brought back to the US to face charges. He could get up to 15 years in prison when sentenced on May 18.

The courts need to send these Islamists a clear message that threats to free speech are not going to be tolerated. Ever since the Cartoon Jihad concerning some minor cartoons published in a Danish newspaper there has been a self-imposed censorship among many in the mainstream press to print anything critical or factual about Islam. (This is compounded by political correctness.)

So-called Muslim civil rights organizations such as CAIR refuse to condemn the constant and open threats by Muslims such as Jesse Curtis Morton and consider him the victim.

In US Muslim man pleads guilty to threatening TV show February 9, 2012 Routers correspondent James Vicini notes,

It said Jesse Curtis Morton, who is also known as Younus Abdullah Mohammed, admitted his guilt at a federal court hearing in Alexandria, Virginia. He ran a website that encouraged Muslims to engage in violence against enemies of Islam.

Morton pleaded guilty to making threatening communications, using the Internet to put others in fear and using his position as leader of the Revolution Muslim organization's Internet sites to conspire to commit murder.

Morton worked on website postings with Zachary Chesser, a Virginia man who pleaded guilty in October 2010 to sending threatening communications to the writers of the comedy show and to other charges...

Morton also conspired with Chesser and others to solicit the murder of an artist tied to the "Everyone Draw Mohammad Day" movement in May 2010, including posting online a magazine that included the artist in a hit list for violent extremists...

Political correctness aside they note: "Most Muslims consider any depiction of the founder of Islam as offensive." This is because under Islam mere criticism or anything else relating to their violent and murderous Prophet of Allah is grounds for killing under Sharia Law. The case is USA v. Morton, No. 12-cr-35, in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.
