Julio Pino, guilty or innocent

Originally posted at Right Truth

Julio Pino has some explaining to do. It seems like every day we discover another alleged terrorist right here in the USA. Mike S. Adams has the details:

Yesterday afternoon, I logged on to the "Global War" blog ( of Associate Professor Julio Pino – a Muslim convert who teaches at Kent State University. The heading for the site used to read "The Worldwide Web of Jihad: Daily News from the Most Dangerous Muslim in America." Now it reads "Are You Prepared for Jihad?" IN THE NAME OF OBL. 2007: THE YEAR OF ISLAMIC VICTORY!"

Hardly able to believe what I was reading, I called Pino at his office in Ohio around 4 p.m. According to his secretary, he had not been at work that day (he only has office hours two days of the week). He was drawing a paycheck from the people of the State of Ohio while trying to launch a Jihad against people like me. In fact, just five minutes before I called he posted an entry under the title "Crusaders Can’t Take Anymore in Afghanistan!" [snip]

There is also an "Oath of Freedom" in the upper right corner: "We were born free. We will live freely and when death comes to us, we will die freely. Jihad is changing all that can be changed; freeing ourselves through our own efforts; and the conviction that truth will prevail, inshallah." (go read it all)

But, just in case you were curious about the purpose of this site, it is provided in the upper right corner: "We are a jihadist news service, and provide battle dispatches, training manuals, and jihad videos to our brothers worldwide. All we want is to get Allah’s pleasure. We will write ‘Jihad’ across our foreheads, and the stars. The angels will carry our message throughout the world."

Fox News reports that 'Ron Kirksey, a university spokesman, said the extremist site has no connection to the university and that the picture on the site was not the professor, the newspaper reported.' Mike S. Adams says it is not unusual for jihadists to put pictures up on sites that are not correct.

Pino, a Cuban-born Muslim convert, told the Plain Dealer he was aware of the Web site and that its comments, articles and information were compiled from many sources. He had no further comment.

The university received a flurry of hate mail and threats since the blog posting, which was subsequently linked to the (Fox News )

"IIn 2005, Pino wrote another controversial letter to his campus newspaper, this time praising University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill and condemning his critics. Pino lauded Churchill for his "righteous obsession with European and American genocide and terrorism against peoples of color all over the world, from 1492 to 2001." --The Global Conservative has much more
