Ahmad Musa Jebril, a Michigan-based Muslim cleric, is free to return to social media after the lifting of a ban imposed upon him because his sermons were inspiring foreign jihadists to join the conflict in Syria, Reuters reports.
Last summer, a federal judge ordered restrictions on the imam after he was identified as an English-speaking preacher particularly admired by fighters traveling to Syria to join groups like ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra.
Jebril’s access to the Internet was severely restricted and he had to regularly report to probation officials.
Court documents reveal that Jebril, a U.S. citizen, has had a long involvement in hardline Islamist ideology along with his father.
Although the bans have now been lifted for a few days, it appears that Jebril has not yet been active on Twitter, YouTube or his own website.
