The man who bankrolled the 2 jihadists who attacked Pamela Geller's cartoon drawing contest in Texas is now facing a jury
A federal jury began deliberations in the trial of alleged Islamic State supporter Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, accused of orchestrating a terrorist attack on an anti-Islam cartoon exhibit.
Kareem, 44, is accused of financing, training and motivating the two gunmen in the May 3 shooting at the Curtis Culwell Center in Texas. Elton Simpson, 30, and Nadir Soofi, 34, opened fire at an exhibit of Prophet Muhammad images. Simpson and Soofi were killed by police. A security guard was injured in the shooting.
Kareem, whose name was originally Decorous Thomas, was not with the attackers during the shooting.
Kareem's longtime friend Stefan Verdugo spoke out against, him during the trial
I hope they recognize the seriousness of the incident, and will declare the vermin guilty. A man who commandeers an attempt to murder people over mere illustrations is a pure disgrace and sorry excuse for a human being, and does not belong in sane society.
