USA v Yousef M. Khattab
D.O.B. August 15, 1968,
Case No. 1:13-cr-418
GORDON KROMBERG ATTORNEY FOR USA:"Regardless of any regrets Yousef al-Khattab may have now, an impressionable person with Jewish grievances may search the Internet and find his rants and threats and solicitations from 2009 and may choose to act on them as a result, the victims of those threats and solicitations have to be aware of that until the end of time."
Sarasota Private Investigator Bill Warner says this image from one of the posts on Revolution Muslim poses a threat to Chabad Lubavitch, Yousef Al-Khattab says that claim is absurd. You decide. Court records show that in 2009, Khattab posted a photo of the headquarters with a link to a map and noted that the main temple was always full at prayer times. In another post that year, he told readers to seek out leaders of Jewish organizations in the United States and “deal with them directly at their homes,” court records show. Yousef Mohamid al-Khattab, 45, an American-born man with dual citizenship in Israel. Khattab admitted that he helped found the “Revolution Muslim” organization in 2007 and that he wrote offensive and incendiary posts on the group’s now-defunct Web site, WWW.RevolutionMuslim.com.
Khattab pleaded guilty in October to using the Internet to put another in fear of death or injury. “To a reasonable person, you were espousing violence, encouraging violence, praising violence in very plain language,” O’Grady said. “What you did is criminal.” Prosecutors also argued that authorities had connected more than 12 followers of Khattab and the organization he helped found — Revolution Muslim — to various terrorist plots or organizations.
O’Grady said he agreed that Khattab’s actions warranted a lesser punishment than those in similar cases. Revolution Muslim co-founder Jesse C. Morton, for example, was sentenced in 2012 to 111 / 2 years in prison after admitting that he encouraged extremists to attack the writers of the “South Park” animated TV show because an episode featured the prophet Muhammad in a bear suit. But O’Grady also said that “freedom of speech carries with it responsibility” and that the postings of Khattab were “horrific.”
