Howie's Former Nemesis Makes FBI Top 10 List (bumped)

Blog foes and convicted terror supporters Younes Abdullah Muhammad and Zachary Chesser after failed attempt at ZZ Top tribute band

In the future history of online flame wars, surely The Jawa Report vs. Revolution Muslim will go down as teh intertubez most epic battle evah. I'm guessing that as we speak, Peter Jackson is busy optioning off the blog rights for a three movie deal.

I'm only half joking here. How many other blog wars ended up with most of the losing participants in exile, in jail or, worse, dead?

Come on, that's a compelling story right there. Forget Frodo vs. Sauron, it's been done. How about Stable Hand vs. Jihad Jane? Rusty vs. Yousef al-Khattab? Or, better yet, Howie vs. Jesse "Younes Abullah Muhammad" Morton.

Vidi, vici, vinii. Which roughly translates as we came, we saw, and we so burned you!

And it looks like the FBI are inclined to agree. At least, with that last part about Howie's old buddy Younes Abdullah Muhammad. FBI:

The FBI worked thousands of investigations during 2012, involving everything from extremists bent on terror to cyber thieves, financial fraudsters, and child predators. As the year comes to a close, we take our annual look back at some of the Bureau’s most significant cases....

Here are some of the top terror cases of 2012...

Revolution’ leader sentenced: A New York City resident was sentenced in June to more than 11 years in prison for using his position as a leader of the Revolution Muslim organization to promote violent extremism online against those he believed to be enemies of Islam.

So, there you have it. Next to stock quotes and porn, the internetz most significant contribution is The Jawa Report. Science!

Note to Peter Jackson -- call me.

Thanks to Pat.
