Cabbie’s Anti-semitic Website Shut Down
Posted on 15 October 2009 By Nikhil Kumar K.S.
The anti-semitic website http://revolutionmuslim.com/, that was run by Yousef Al-Khattab, a New York cab driver, has been shut down. Private investigator Bill Warner told the Ink today that he succeed in convincing the service that hosted the controversial website to discontinue its services for Al-Khattab. Neither the hosting service nor Al-Khattab were available for comment.
Al-Khattab, 40, was formerly a Jew named Joseph Cohen, who grew up and lived amongst the Hassidic communities in Williamsburg. He converted to Islam in 2004 (Muslim convert in 1998 as per a Jerusalem Post Nov. 2005 article). According to Warner and other critics, he has used his site to incite violence against Jewish people and has been known to be openly anti-semitic.
Al-Khattab was the subject of an extensive profile by the Ink in March 2009, "Crossing the line? Free Speech or Terror" ....Yousef al-Khattab. Bill Warner, a Private investigator and cyber vigilante, who says he has helped shut down several jihadist websites across America by reporting them to their Internet service providers and the authorities, says people like Khattab incite others to commit violent acts, rather than doing them on their own. “Whatever problems there are in the Middle East, he brings them to Queens, New York,” he says. “He tries to get people to do things.”
