An American al Qaeda Devotee in New York

www.al-buruj.com.JPGI saw this video of Yousef al-Khattab praising the murder of Daniel Pearl over at LGF and was just sickened. Since most of my readers also visit LGF regularly, I figured I wouldn't say anything. But when I saw Allahpundit's post today, something seemed oddly familiar about his face.

That's because "Yousef al-Khattab", aka Takfiri, is one Joseph Cohen, who I first ran into via the cyber jihadis over at The Ignored Puzzle, the Wordpress hosted English language al Qaeda support website, where his blogspot hosted website is on Inshallahshaheed's blogroll.

Which is very interesting, given that Inshallahshaheed is a friend of convicted terror suppoerter Daniel Aljughaifi (given name Daniel Maldonado), who's Wordpress hosted blog remains despite numerous complaints. It's also very interesting to note that Yousef al-Khattab admits to knowing "Abu Muhammed" (Aljughafi's nickname) in this article:

Despite the guilty plea, some friends maintain Maldonado is a victim of religious persecution.

Yousef al-Khattab, a New York City bicycle-taxi driver, said in a telephone interview he believes the government trumped up the charges against Maldonado.

Al-Khattab said he never met Maldonado but has known him for four or five years through the Internet and considers him a friend.

And since I discovered Yousef al-Khattab through mutual "friends" of Omar Bakri Mohammed, my immediate suspicions were that he was a follower of the movement now calling itself Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah in Britain, and which maintains a website called "Islam Base".

And I'll remind you once again that in "base" in Arabic is qaeda, and the website once featured books by Ayman al Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden, before we exposed them.

Which makes a lot of sense, since al-Khattab has several books online which he downloaded from Bakri Mohammed's followers at Islam Base, including a book written by convicted terrorist financier Abu Hamza, Allah's Government on the Earth, on his website. He also has a direct link to Islam Base on his website which takes you to a lecture by Sheikh Anwar Al Awlaki on The Constants of Jihad. And Islam Base reciprocates by linking Khattab's Judaism to Islam video.

Now, Khattab claims to be in Morocco, but his website has a New York contact phone number and the article above interviewed him last month also describes him as working in the city. And since we know he is connected to the followers of Omar Bakri Mohammed, then the logical inference is that he is a member of his New York City affiliate, The Islamic Thinkers Society (their website, here).

Which brings us back to the original point: something familiar about that face.....Oh, yeah...

Allahu akbar, here's the video. Then again, the bearded look is popular among that group....

But the other evidence seems pretty solid. His connection to Omar Bakri Mohammed's followers, plus being in New York almost certainly means he is affiliated with The Islamic Thinkers Society.

How bad is this guy? Remember, he's a Jew, and he wrote this at an Islamist message board:

Dear brothers and sisters, it is as clear as day and night that the Jews are the enemy of mankind and even the environment. I have read this thread, and the Jew has been provided with more than ample proofs and evidences, but why waste time? It is crystal clear that the Jews (may Allah swt destroy them) run the media,banking,USA foreign policy,and the porn industry etc. etc.

Brothers and sisters rather than being kept 'busy' refuting this bacteria we should focus on ridding Judaism from this earth. To quote a brother that the USA government issued a postage stamp in his memory, "by any means necessary".
The Jew on this forum mentioned the Nazis in one of 'it's' posts, I felt it only fair to post Joseph Gobbele's essay that has ALOT of truth in it though not all truth. The essay is called The Jew and it was written in 1929 interesting how true it is to this day and time! ...

[He then quotes extensively from the Nazi's chief propagandist, Joseph Goebbels] ...

Brothers and sisters, I am not a Neo Nazi in fact I am a former Jew,but I urge you to rush forth in Allah's service in any and all ways legal to eliminate the teachings of Judaism aka The Jewish People.

Bad enough that he'd call for genocide against his own people.

Parting thought from Yousef al-Khattab, in a message he wrote at an Islamic message board:

My concern is a Sharia State inshaallah BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
Emphasis is not mine.

UPDATE: His Youtube account has been suspended ululululululululu!
