FBI issues alert about Arizona man, citing a "potential threat to law enforcement"

- The FBI has reportedly warned law enforcement in New York about a man who organized a protest earlier this year at a Phoenix mosque.

In a video he apparently posted last week on Facebook, Jon Ritzheimer calls out The Islamic Post, which is based in New York, for calling him the "American Taliban."

Ritzheimer said he was going across the country to confront them, stopping at every mosque on the way, taking a picture and flipping them off.  He also goes on a profanity-laced tirade about Muslims, refugees and President Obama.  At the end of the video, he cocks his gun.

The New York Daily News says FBI agents made contact with Ritzheimer, but two days later, when he was in Pennsylvania, the publication says he cut off communication with them.

The Daily News says the agency then issued an alert, saying he's a potential threat to law enforcement.
