Jamaican Cleric Uses Web To Spread Jihad Message

May 28, 2010

Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-American who is accused of trying to detonate a car bomb in Times Square earlier this month, says he was radicalized by the Internet. Intelligence officials tell NPR that one of his inspirations is Sheik Abdullah Faisal, who recently set up shop in the Caribbean.
Radicalizing young men like Shahzad used to be a process that took months and generally required one-on-one recruiting, officials say. Now the radicalization process appears to happen at breakneck speed, just with the click of a mouse.

Faisal is one of the best known radical clerics on the Internet today. NPR set up an interview with Abdullah Faisal weeks ago. But when he arrived to speak to us in Montego Bay last week, he demanded money for the interview. NPR refused. So he declined to speak on tape.

NAIROBI, Kenya — A Kenyan prosecutor says a Jamaican-born radical Muslim cleric who once led a British mosque attended by convicted terrorists is being flown back to Jamaica.

A court ordered the government to produce Sheik Abdullah el-Faisal in court Thursday and state the reasons it was holding him in detention.

Prosecutor Edward Okello said Thursday the cleric had left the country, and could not appear in court.

El-Faisal entered Kenya last month. The government has held him in detention and has been trying to deport him, saying he is a security threat.

The cleric served four years in Britain for inciting murder and stirring racial hatred by urging followers to kill Americans, Hindus and Jews.
