Salam Al-Marayati, executive director of the Los Angeles-based Muslim Public Affairs Council, urged the judge to punish former dental assistant Krugel with the maximum sentence for his crimes.Curious that there are no news reports when you search the name "Earl Krugel". There is, however, a website run in his name. Whilst searching I noticed that the old JDL site - jdl.org - has been suspended so maybe that was their last gasp.
"Mr Krugel should be treated like any terrorist, even though there is no mention of this term in the charges against him," he told the judge.
"To this day, we are living under the shadow of terror as a result of Mr Krugel's actions," Mr Al-Marayati said.
