The group had a long list of potential targets in Europe, particularly in Germany and Austria.
Mr. Namouh, a member of the Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF),was also found guilty of trying to extort Germany and Austria into withdrawing troops from Afghanistan and other propaganda activities.
In internet jihad circles, the GIMF is known as one of the oldest and most far-reaching networks. Writing under the pseudonym “Ashraf,” Mr. Namouh submitted 1,075 postings to a GIMF site.
