A judge has ordered monitoring of computer and Internet use of a U.S. Islamic preacher regarded by some federal officials and a group that studies radicals as an inspirational figure for foreign fighters in Syria.Federal officials familiar with the case told Reuters the judge's order would allow probation authorities to monitor Jebril's activities to make sure he is not trying to instigate Americans to travel to Syria to join other foreign fighters.This month, U.S. authorities said that a Florida man, Moner Mohammad Abu-salha, had become the first known American suicide bomber in Syria.Documents filed in court by the government in the sentencing phase of Jebril's trial alleged that he and his father had a long involvement with Islamic militant groups and ideology.They said that Jebril ran an anti-American Islamist website called AlSalafyoon.doc.
