A Jordanian-American living in Chicago was convicted Tuesday of mailing a bomb threat to a Jewish school near his home.
Mohammed Alkaramla, 26, faces up to 10 years in prison for sending a letter to the Ida Crown Jewish Academy in which he threatens to attack Jewish educational centers in the Chicago area, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Authorities tracked down Alkaramla after finding his fingerprints on the letter. They were on file with the Chicago Police Department after his 2003 arrest for marijuana. When they searched his apartment, authorities found a laptop which had been used to search for the phrases "Bomb attack + Israel + letters" and "Jewish elementary schools in Chicago" on Google.
He had apparently used the laptop to look for samples of threat letters on the Internet. The one he finally composed was reprinted by Fox Chicago, with all its typos intact:
