Muslim Convert Who Tried to Join Terrorists Gets 25 Years

Posted on February 24, 2011

Great, now we can feed and clothe and give you medical care for the next 20 years, courtesy of the US taxpayer you would prefer to see killed by your fellow terrorists. Of the 20 years is only a hope that you don’t get early release. We have a better idea:

(In a case like this, prison terms don’t impress us. This man should have his citizenship stripped, put on a list to be shot on site if he every tries to get back in the country, and he should be exiled. Where is it you wanted to go, Somalia, ok next military flight you get dropped off there. We’;re sure you’ll enjoy the rest of your life in that hell hole, or perhaps it won’t be that long before you die on the battlefield. Either way you should no longer be our problem, by your actions, it’s what you wanted.)

A college dropout and Muslim convert who threatened the creators of the “South Park” cartoon series and then tried to join an Al Qaeda-linked terrorist group in Somalia has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Zachary A. Chesser of Bristow, Va., pleaded guilty last year to supporting the al-Shabab terrorist group in Somalia and posting online threats against the “South Park” creators for an episode he perceived as insulting to the Prophet Muhammad. He was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria.

Chesser posted a warning on the website last April following the 200th episode of “South Park,” which included a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad disguised in a bear suit.

Chesser, who just two years earlier was studying foreign languages at George Mason University, wrote on the site that Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the cartoon’s creators, “will probably end up” like Theo van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was murdered in 2004 after making a film critical of Islamic society.

“It’s not a threat, but it really is a likely outcome,” Chesser told last April. “They’re going to be basically on a list in the back of the minds of a large number of Muslims. It’s just the reality.”

Prosecutors had been seeking the maximum sentence of 30 years. Chesser’s lawyers sought a 20-year term.’s Joshua Rhett Miller and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
