Sheikh Abdullah Ibrahim al-Faisal aka Trevor William Forrest Added to Specially Designated Terrorist List

Trevor William Forrest is awaiting extradition from Jamaica.

The US Treasury Department has sanctioned Abdullah Ibrahim al-Faisal (a.k.a. Trevor William Forrest), a well-known jihadist ideologue and Islamic State recruiter based in Jamaica. He has been added to the US government’s list of specially designated global terrorists. Faisal is “currently facing extradition proceedings,” as he has been indicted on terrorism-related charges in New York.

The Jamaican cleric (pictured above) has promulgated his extremist views online for years, influencing numerous terrorists in the process, according to Treasury.

Interestingly, the US government counts Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a Somali refugee who drove his car into a crowd of people at Ohio State University in Nov. 2016, as one of Faisal’s fans. The Islamic State quickly claimed Artan’s attack via its Amaq News Agency, saying he was a “soldier” of the so-called caliphate who “carried out the operation in response to calls to target nationals of the international coalition countries.” [See FDD’s Long War Journal report, Islamic State claims its ‘soldier’ carried out Ohio State attack.]

So as long time readers will know Trevor was the ideological leader of Revolution Muslim and the more radical elements of the Islamic Thinker's Society of NY.

His sermons radicalized domestic terrorists all over the world. Some of his followers include Zach Chesser who threatened to kill Southpark Creators. Carlos "the Juice" Almonte, Younes Abdullah Muhammad are just a few.

So 15 years late is better than never right? No, no its not. If radicals like Faisal had been addressed early some Muslims might have never become aligned with terrorists and their lives might not have been destroyed.

Faisal leads young impressionable Muslims to terrorism, they then reap the rewards of his hateful doctrine such as Federal Prison, while Faisal himself has sat in Jamaica getting off easy.

Its way way past time he got his.
