Feds Indict Man Who Used Internet to Encourage Terrorist Attacks on Police Stations, Bridges, Water Plants and Synagogues

A 22-year-old Pennsylvania man was indicted in Virginia on Thursday on charges of using the Internet to solicit Islamic extremists to commit terrorist acts on such targets as police stations and synagogues within the U.S. and posting bomb-making instructions.

Emerson Winfield Begolly, of New Bethlehem, Pa., was indicted by a federal grand jury in Alexandria, Va.

“Emerson Begolly is accused of repeatedly using the Internet to promote violent jihad against Americans,” said U.S. Attorney Neil H. MacBride. “These allegations demonstrate how young people in the United States can become influenced by – and eventually participate in – jihadist propaganda that is a serious threat to the safety of us all.”

Authorities alleged that Begolly has been an active moderator of a popular, internationally known Islamic extremist web forum, the Ansar al-Mujahideen English Forum (AMEF).

Authorities charged that since July 2010, Begolly has placed a number of postings encouraging attacks within the United States, including the use of firearms, explosives and propane tanks against targets such as police stations, post offices, synagogues, military facilities, train lines, bridges, cell phone towers and water plants.
