A Penn State student who penned songs praising terrorists on jihadist forums sits in jail tonight following his arrest earlier this week after a confrontation with two FBI agents. On Dec. 22nd I reported here exclusively at Big Peace on Emerson Begolly's most recent "nasheed" in tribute to the Swedish suicide bomber, Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, which was posted by Begolly on the infamous Ansar al-Jihad internet forum under his nom de jihad, Asadullah Alshishani.
My report apparently prompted the FBI to launch an investigation into his online activities, which culminated in a confrontation in a fast-food restaurant's parking lot on Tuesday near Begolly's home north of Pittsburgh. The Associated Press is reporting today:
A western Pennsylvania man posted pro-terrorist songs and statements online under an alias and faces a detention hearing Thursday on charges he bit two FBI agents while carrying a loaded gun.
