A district court judge in Ohio starkly delivered a sentence to convicted U.S.-born, would-be terrorist Terrence McNeil Wednesday.
McNeil, who posted kill lists of members of the U.S. military, spouted Islamic epithets at Judge Dan Polster, declaring, “nothing you did today even matters. Jihad will continue until the day of judgment.”
He continued, “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 replied, “All right. Mr. McNeil, while I respect your opinion, I think you have confirmed the wisdom of my 20-year sentence.”
McNeil posted kill lists of members of the U.S. military and actively disseminated ISIS propaganda on social media websites. “With this sentence, McNeil is being held accountable for disseminating ISIS’s violent rhetoric, circulating U.S. military personnel information and explicitly calling for the killing of American service members in their homes and communities,” Assistant Attorney General Boente said following McNeil’s sentence of 20 years.
