Texas man convicted of attempting to aid Al Qaeda

Another American citizen has chosen to embrace Islam and wage jihad against his country and the West. While it's a good thing that a conviction for terroristic activity was obtained, the sentence of 15 years is not adequate. The only fitting sentence, aside from the death penalty, is life without parole.

The reason for life without parole for Islamic terrorism of any sort is that the perpetrators will return, sooner or later and try again. Failing to permanently remove terrorists is seen as weakness and encourages more to take their place.

SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - A Muslim convert from Texas who once e-mailed a radical Muslim cleric saying he wanted "to do my part for jihad" was convicted on Monday of attempting to provide material support to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

Barry Walter Bujol, 30, faces 15 years in prison on a terrorism charge as well as five additional years for aggravated identity theft, of which he was also convicted on Monday.

Bujol's conviction follows a more than two-year investigation during which the man from the east Texas town of Hempstead repeatedly pledged his commitment to "violent jihad," according to U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson.
