A homegrown terrorist originating from Staten Island was just busted, and nary a peep from the midstream media:
The young Staten Islander nailed in Hawaii last week on terrorism-related charges used to be an "all-American kid" more interested in basketball and video games than extremist politics, stunned relatives and friends said yesterday.
"He's mad probably because of what is going on in Palestine," said Musleh of the US-born Shehadeh, whose parents are Palestinian. "Nobody has been helping [the Palestinians] for years."
He then spent the summer posting rants on his Web site, Civil Jihad, with links to videos by Osama bin Laden and Somali militants.
An Internet search by The Post found that he sent a message to Awlaki, the terrorist cleric who was also in contact with Fort Hood mass murderer Nidal Malik Hasan.
"Yaa Imam please come out with a new lecture. The muslims of the west need a push," Shehadeh wrote.
