Former George Mason University student Zachary Adam Chesser, now known as Abu Talhah al-Amrikee, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after attempting to provide material to a Somali-based terrorist organization and threatening the lives of the writers of “South Park,” according to an article in the Christian Science Monitor.

Al-Amrikee also posted a message on on April 15, 2010, following a “South Park” episode that featured the prophet Muhammad in a bear costume, according to an April 23 Connect2Mason article.

Al-Amrikee’s message said: “We have to warn [Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of “South Park”] that what they are doing is stupid, and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”

Van Gogh was a Dutch filmmaker killed after producing a film criticizing the treatment of women in Islamic societies.

Al-Amrikee posted the names and addresses of people who participated in the satiric “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” on a militant Islamic website, according to the Christian Science Monitor article.

“I did not think [my comments] would garner quite this large of a reaction, but they were intended to turn this into a story so that the Muslims would not just let this event go unnoticed,” Al-Amrikee said in an e-mail to Connect2Mason in 2010.

Al-Amrikee dropped out of Mason in the spring of 2008, according to the Connect2Mason article.

Al-Amrikee’s lawyer, Michael Nachmanoff, was not available for comment at the time of this article’s printing.
