This savage is right in one way: jihad will continue. It will not stop. There are always going to be Muslims who believe they are serving Allah by killing the kuffar. Until kuffar authorities wake up to that and start dealing with it realistically, it will continue.
CLEVELAND, Ohio — An Akron terrorism suspect sentenced to 20 years in federal prison on Wednesday threatened the judge who handed down the sentence.
Terrence McNeil, 24, made the remarks to U.S. District Judge Dan Polster toward the end of a sentencing hearing on charges that he threatened members of the military and their families in the name of the Islamic State, a terrorist group also known as ISIS or ISIL.
McNeil also said he would be rewarded in the afterlife.
“Nothing you did today even matters. Jihad will continue until the day of judgment,” McNeil said. “And that’s a promise from Allah. It’s not going to change. It’s not going to stop. Neither of them are. My commission of Allah is not going to stop. So this is meaningless. I’ll be rewarded for what I do. You’ll be punished for what you do. I’m fine with that. You’re fine with that. So we’ll wait for the punishment of Allah to afflict you, either by himself or through the hands of the Muslims, and then we’ll see. Inshallah.”
Polster responded, “All right. Mr. McNeil, while I respect your opinion, I think you have confirmed the wisdom of my 20-year sentence.”
The FBI arrested McNeil in November 2015 after he used social-media websites to profess his support for ISIS, prosecutors said. A file he posted Sept. 24, 2015 on his Tumblr page had the header “Islamic State Hacking Division,” followed by “Target: United States Military” and “Leak: Addresses of 100 U.S. Military Personnel.”
The file, first posted by someone else in March 2015, is a .gif, which allows multiple images to be looped. The text of the first file encouraged people who saw it to kill the military members “in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe…”, prosecutors said.
He also made similar postings on Twitter and Tumblr at least two other times….
On Wednesday, McNeil began the sentencing hearing by refusing to stand when the judge entered the room, a customary sign of respect done in most court cases. Before his parting words, he only gave terse “yes” and “no” answers when the judge asked him questions….
McNeil’s social media accounts were filled with ISIL propaganda and statements such as “I can’t wait for another 9/11, Boston bombing, or Sandy Hook!!!”, according to the government’s sentencing memo….
