Friends say North Brunswick webmaster is no terrorist
Friends of Mazen Mokhtar say he is a peaceful Muslim who teaches classes on Islam and sometimes leads prayer services. But federal authorities say otherwise.
The North Brunswick webmaster is accused of running an Internet site that's identical to another site used to recruit terrorists. Investigators searched Mokhtar's home and said they found evidence of a connection to a London man charged last week with aiding terrorists.
Authorities haven't charged Mokhtar with a crime. One friend said he's never heard Mokhtar say anything that could be considered radical.
