Muslim Ex-Journalist Smirks While Pleading Guilty to Threatening Jews


Juan Thompson, a former American journalist who converted to Islam, smirked and crossed his arms cavalierly during a New York court hearing in which he pleaded guilty to making threats against Jewish Community Centers.

Thompson, 32, confessed to making the threats earlier this year, and has been held without bail since March. Prosecutors say he’s the culprit in at least eight of the hundreds of bomb threats JCCs in America have experienced since January.

The Jerusalem Post has the story:

“According to the investigation, Thompson did so as part of a “campaign of harassment” against his ex-girlfriend.

“Although he denied the charges and claimed he was being framed as a black man before his extradition to New York, on Tuesday, Thompson told the judge he has to ‘face the consequences of his actions.’

“Despite declaring that he was ‘slightly nervous’ and “deeply” apologizing for his crimes, Thompson – dressed in a khaki prison uniform, his hair much longer than on the pictures seen of him in media reports – seemed completely nonchalant.

“No signs of remorse appeared on his face as he smirked throughout the hour-long proceeding.

“He admitted to having sent emails and faxes defaming his ex-girlfriend to her employer in 2016, as well as making the JCC threats in her name.

“As part of Thompson’s guilty plea, Judge Kevin Castel, who is presiding over the case, was presented with two sentencing recommendations: one for a prison term between 30 and 37 months, suggested by the defense, and one for a prison term of 37 to 46 months, suggested by the government.

“The plea bargain stipulates that Thompson is waiving his right of appeal to any sentence within these ranges or below them, which means that only if the judge decides to impose a sentence above 46 months, will he be able to appeal it.”

The Anti-Defamation League cheered the court outcome.

“Juan Thompson’s conduct was inexcusable and stoked fears of anti-Semitism at a time when such incidents were on the rise,” said Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO. “His guilty plea and potential sentence sends a clear message that his actions were unacceptable. It is important that he is being brought to justice.”

Thompson is due for sentencing in September.

This is a guy who converted to Islam and went on a long-running campaign to take out Jews.

As previously reported by Pamela Geller:

“During two threats, Thompson claimed there were bombs in a middle school and there was going to be a ‘Jewish Newtown.’ …

“Thompson is also accused of sending nude photographs of his ex-girlfriend to her boss.” …

“He also tweeted about what he believed was [Trump’s] ‘and the white establishement’s effort to remove black [people] from the southside of Chicago.”
