Judge orders man to leave Irvine mosque alone

Worshipers say they reported him to authorities after he asked to become a convert and began talking about jihad.

At the beginning, worshipers at the Islamic Center of Irvine said, they thought
Craig Monteilh was just an overzealous convert when he criticized U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. But when he started talking about jihad and dropped oblique references to violence, congregants contacted authorities.

Can't find much else on it, although I'll keep my eyes peeled. Can't say I've come across any of these crazed converts or similarly thinking born muslims in real life, but I've run across them online.

Assalamu 'alaykum,

I wonder if it's related to the group of white neo-nazis who are trying to pretend to convert to Islam to dupe unsuspecting Muslims into talking about jihad so they can dob them into authorities (see here for where it has happened just recently)

That is something that crossed my mind. Need more information!
