**** UPDATE: New York Comedy Club owner Al Martin says he was duped by Robert Mustaq John into writing a laudatory letter to the court. I withdraw my call to boycott his club. ****
On Tuesday, Robert Mustaq John was finally “sentenced” for sending me a death threat.
The Muslim alien from Trinidad and Tobago, who now lives in the Bronx, NY, sent me the e-mail, below, featuring pictures of Daniel Pearl in mid-beheading and other states of pre-rigor mortis, with the text, “JEWgirl,u Might Be Next” and “KILL ALL KIKES” in blood-red, bold capital letters.
I say “sentenced” in quotation marks because Federal Magistrate Joan Azrack was not only soft on Mr. John, she took the unusual step of departing downward–by two-thirds–both from the mandatory sentencing guidelines for Mr. John’s crime and from the recommendation of the Federal Probation Officer in his Pre-Sentencing Report.
Judge Azrack sentenced Mr. John to only four months in prison (plus 400 hours of community service), even though she was actually required to sentence him to 12-18 months, as required by the sentencing guidelines. In addition, Federal Probation Officer Jeffrey Houser recommended that Mr. John receive a year in prison, the maximum sentence for the Misdemeanor to which soft Justice Department officials allowed him to plead in a very generous deal. It is rare that a Federal Judge does not follow the recommendation of the Probation Officer, even rarer that she goes so much softer on the criminal.
They want Stanislav Shmulevich to serve four years in prison for flushing a Koran down the toilet, but this Muslim who believes in the Koran and wanted to behead me in conjunction with it, gets only four months?
That Azrack, a Magistrate–a judge NOT nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate, was allowed to sentence Mr. John in his native New York at all is, in and of itself, a strong indication that Justice Department officials simply didn’t care about my case–me being the Infidel victim, Mr. John being the Muslim, anti-Semitic perpetrator. Even the Federal Probation Officer said he’d never seen anything like it. Normally, the perpetrator would be sentenced here in Detroit, where I–the victim!–reside. And he’d be sentenced by an actual, confirmed Federal Judge, not a clinician like Magistrate Azrack, who was appointed by her peers in the liberal Eastern District of New York.
I’m not surprised by this. As I’ve repeatedly noted on this site, at every step of the way, I’ve had to fight for “justice” against Robert Mustaq John. That’s why I had to wait almost four years for a simple matter to go to court, whereas the Justice Department immediately pounces on non-Muslims who send far more benign e-mails to Muslim extremists who advocate their deaths.
Were it not for this website and you, my loyal readers, this Muslim death-threat sender–Robert Mustaq John–would have been free to send e-mails like this, without penalty. If I didn’t have a voice, the FBI and Justice Department wouldn’t give a damn. And for far too long, they didn’t give a damn anyway.
They barely give a damn now. The Justice Department attorney assigned to this case didn’t say the government will appeal the sentence, which is generally the case when the Judge gives such a soft sentence and has such a downward departure from both the recommendations of the Federal Probation Officer and the requirements of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
Perhaps if Mr. John had displayed some phony, taqiyyah-filled [taqiyyah is the Islamic precept of deceiving the infidels] remorse for what he did, we could understand the undue softness for Muslim hate-crime perpetrators displayed by Judge Azrack. But John didn’t even do that. In the absurd letter he submitted to and read before the Court, Robert Mustaq John claimed that his e-mail to me was “comedy,” that he was trying to get attention for his website as an aspiring comedian. Please look at his e-mail. Do you see a website mentioned ANYWHERE? Do you see anything funny about it?
“KILL ALL KIKES.” Haha, funny. “JEWgirl,u Might Be Next.” Hilarious. Daniel Pearl in mid-beheading. A real Dave Chappelle, this guy. What the heck is funny about anything he wrote to me and clearly meant to scare me? Where’s the humor?
PUH-LEEZE. He knew what he was doing. He sent me the e-mail to scare me and to threaten my life. Period. It had nothing to do with showbiz. That’s just complete baloney.
And John didn’t stop there. He said that because I wrote a column he didn’t like in the New York Post–a column about a Muslim terrorist who was going to get an award from the FBI (which was revoked as a result of my column)–and promoted it on the Howard Stern show, that I “am a part of the entertainment business – which can be a raunchy, politicallly incorrect or sleazy environment.” So that makes it okay to tell me he’s going to behead me, apparently.
John also claims that he, too, as a “comedian” who sends out the “humor” of anti-Semitic death threats, is “a part of the entertainment business.” Uh, Mr. John, there is NOTHING entertaining about what you sent me. Not in the least. Then, he compares himself to a stupid rap group, saying he sent me his death threat was a way to launch his career:
When we look at a rap group with the name NWA which stands for “Niggers With Attudes” [sic--DS: it's actually, Attitude, singular, not plural] (I apologize to the court for having to use the ‘N’ word) on e may think that nothing good can come out of them. Yet they have produced household names like Dr. Dre. and ICE Cube. Ice-T, another rapper out of this group, had his share of controversy with his song called ‘Copkiller’, which predictably caused a hailstorm of free publicity and thus sales. Ice-T presently stars in NBC’s long running his Law & Order.
Yes, Law and Order. That’s the one thing–from beginning to end–that has NOT occurred in the case of this absurd idiot’s death threat on me and his attempt to silence me from writing more columns like the ones I’ve written in the New York Post. That’s what this was about–to frighten and silence me. The “entertainment” and “comedy” excuses are BS.
John submitted a letter to the judge from Al Martin, owner of the New York Comedy Club, praising him and asking for a lenient sentence. Boycott Martin and his comedy club. Clearly he thinks anti-Semitic death threats from Muslims are funny. Let him know you don’t appreciate his “taste” in “comedy.”
Mr. John was ordered to report for prison on August 17th. That means on December 17th, I’ll have to worry about him again, as I do about the other Muslim death threats the Justice Department won’t do a damn thing about because I’m not a Muslim and the perpetrators are.
I only hope that for the four months he’s in federal prison that Robert Mustaq John finds “fame” and is very “popular” with his fellow inmates.
Because Magistrate Azrack has been so soft on Mr. John every step of the way, I doubt he’d have gotten any jailtime, but for many of your letters you sent via snailmail to the Court. I’ve read all of them, and it is gratifying to know that all Americans are not sound asleep, that there are concerned citizens like you who want to take our country back from the politically correct Judge Azracks and scary Muslim criminal Robert Mustaq Johns who are harming it beyond reclamation. Judge Azrack knew you were watching and at least felt the compulsion to give him some sort of punishment.
Thanks to Mary J., Pamela W., Richard S., Lee M., Paul N., William W., Ruth G., Kenneth R., Paula F., Felice S., Kevin M., Lawrence P., M. Anna G., Peter M., and all those who took the time to write snailmail letters to the judge. All of your letters were excellent and, I believe, had an impact on this liberal, soft judge.
(If you sent the Judge a letter and I missed your name, my apologies. I went by the letters that were posted to the Court file (which for some strange reason, not all were). I appreciate your help on this. Thank you.)

I am so sorry that your email stalker did not get a stronger sentence. The judge in the case was absurd. Perhaps she should have pretended he was a border patrol agent.
