unnamed-3The would-be jihadist who was convicted of threatening the creators of “South Park” over an episode featuring the Prophet Muhammad dressed in a bear suit is suing federal prison officials for limiting his ability to “fulfill Islam’s religious obligations,” The Smoking Gun has learned.

A civil complaint filed last month, Zachary Chesser, 25, alleges that Bureau of Prison regulations limiting religious gatherings are a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and prevent him from fully exercising his beliefs.

Chesser, a Muslim convert, contends that Islam “obligates and encourages” various congregate activities, including five daily prayers, religious classes, and celebrations. However, he notes, the BoP “only permits such activity once per week”…

    Hi Zack!
    How’s that 25-year prison sentence treating you?

    I have a question for anyone who knows more than I about these things.
    One of the charges that he plead guilty to was “soliciting violent jihadists to desensitize law enforcement”.
    Can anyone tell me just what in the heck that ‘charge’ even means?

      I guess hussein will say that if he was all white this would be his son and he will intervene on this callow youths behalf.

      I think he was going to plant parcels that were nothing so often that police wouldn’t bother looking at them any

    How did he suddenly get the idea to engage in legal jihad from prison?

        More likely he’s been googling the Sock Puppets in Canada.

    Zack, while you’re arse is in the air, as you are fulfilling your duty to Islam, I have a flag pole I need to plant. Not to worry… the scream won’t bother me.

    Go figure. You would think he would have had enough of bending over daily, never mind on his prayer mat.

  • cmh

    Just wait till he gets out….BOOM

      I’m sure he’ll be among the many Islamic Brothers that Obama will pardon as the end of his term approaches. Sorry, “if” the end of his term approaches. If he refuses to leave office this toe jam sucking idiot will be pardoned by Imperial decree.
