Timothy DeTillio’s Twitter account, on which he threatened to kill Obama and his family and hailed the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, has been suspended, and he may have been arrested by now for threatening the President. He seems to be a questionable character in any case, as a judge ordered his arrest on April 24 for the sale of oxycodone. In any case, his Facebook page is still there, featuring DeTillio in Islamic garb, a photo of a rifle and a backpack, a map of Iraq proclaiming, “The Islamic state will remain,” and a group about Islamic prayer (“A worshipper of Allah should never forget supplication”).
So here again we see a convert to Islam who somehow got the crazy idea that his new religion had something to do with violence. Muslim groups in the U.S. profess to reject and abhor this idea, and yet they have no program of any kind designed to teach converts to Islam like DeTillio why this understanding of Islam is wrong on Islamic grounds. What’s more, law enforcement and government officials don’t seem to mind this omission. Now, why is that?
