violent messages being preached outside a New York mosque
Drew Griffin and Kathleen Johnston
Outside a Manhattan mosque where the imam preaches against terrorism, the brothers of the "Revolution Muslim" are spreading a different message.
Protected by the Constitution of the country they detest, radical Muslim converts like Yousef al-Khattab and Younes Abdullah Mohammed preach that the killing of U.S. troops overseas is justified. In their thinking, so were the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States - and so are attacks on almost any American.
"Americans will always be a target - and a legitimate target - until America changes its nature in the international arena," Mohammed said.
Al-Khattab and Mohammed consider al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden their model.
