A federal grand jury indicted a man for encouraging Islamic terrorists to target U.S. sites, including synagogues.

Emerson Winfield Begolly, 22, of New Bethlehem, Pa., “is accused of repeatedly using the Internet to promote violent jihad against Americans,” U.S. Attorney Neil McBride was quoted as saying in a release by the FBI on July 14, the day the indictment was handed down by a grand jury in Alaexandria, Va.. “These allegations demonstrate how young people in the United States can become influenced by—and eventually participate in—jihadist propaganda that is a serious threat to the safety of us all.”

Begolly allegedly moderated Ansar al-Mujahideen English Forum, where he posted bomb-making instructions and encouraged attacks on “police stations, post offices, synagogues military facilities, train lines, bridges, cell phone towers and water plants,” the FBI release said.
