First he hit a news article up on its profile, which showed that there were several dead during the shooting in France. He supplemented this notice with a happy smiley.
Shortly after he wrote the following on his profile:
“I want to use this posting to denounce all the drawings that Charlie Hebdo has taken out of our beloved prophet, and I feel with all the Muslims around the world who have felt offended by the cartoons,” he writes.
Abu Ubaydillah has been in the media spotlight when he threatened the President of the Danish Syrian Association, Mohammad mahfoud, that he be beheaded because he claimed he was disbelief.
