  • Revolution Muslim was an organization based in New York City that advocated the establishment of a traditionalist Islamic state through the removal of the current rulers in Muslim-majority nations and an end to what they consider "Western imperialism". It was founded in 2007 by two American men, one of them Jewish, who had converted to Islam. They operated both on their website "RevolutionMuslim.com" and through street preaching and protests. They frequently protested outside the Islamic Cultural Center of New York, a moderate Muslim mosque. The website was eventually shut down on November 2010, shortly after the arrest of one of the leaders. One of the leaders announced the group was reforming as a new organization called "Islam Policy", to be a think tank on Islamic issues. He was operating the website for Islam Policy from Morocco. By November, 2013, You­nis Abdul­lah Muham­mad, Zachary Adam Chesser and Yousef Al-Khattab - the organization's leaders - had all been arrested and convicted in US courts. Although Muhammad occasionally posts to the Islam Policy website from prison, the arrests can be seen as considerably weakening the organization.
