CAIR Supports Terror

Check out Power Line for the details. This organization needs to be outlawed. More than enough that you need to know can also be found at CAIR Watch. Also linked is a Front Page piece Lying about Al-Arian.
A recent article in American Muslim magazine attempts to burnish the image of Sami Al-Arian, the former University of South Florida professor who last year pleaded guilty to assisting the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group. It is but the latest example of the American Islamic community asserting that terrorist operatives like Al-Arian, who is currently awaiting his deportation in a Virginia jail, are blameless victims of prosecutors run amok.

The article overflows with sympathy for Al-Arian. Quoting a friend's question to Al-Arian, the author, Sarah Shields, writes: “Has anyone told you that you look like Gandhi?” U.S. District Judge James Moody had a very different impression of Al-Arian when he sentenced him to 57 months in prison last May. Pointing out that Al-Arian had made no effort to prevent terrorist attacks carried out by Islamic Jihad, the Judge Moody observed, “You lifted not one finger. To the contrary, you laughed when you heard of the bombings.”
Read them all and then ask why they continue to operate.
