Congratulations folks, this is what is teaching our fine young minds at university campuses across this great nation of ours;
The terror- support trial of Sami Al-Arian (Chosen in 1993 as the best professor in the Faculty of Engineering, and as the best professor on the level of the entire university in 1994.)
Al Arian the Florida college professor has been identified as a fund raiser and organizer for a Palestinian terrorist group blamed for killing two Americans -- and many others -- was arrested Thursday and charged along with seven other people with racketeering and conspiracy to commit murder. Federal authorities arrested Kuwaiti-born University of South Florida professor Sami Al-Arian, 45, described as the North American leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and three others.
"The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is one of the most violent terrorist organizations in the world," "The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is responsible for the murder of over 100 people in Israel and the occupied territories, including at least two Americans: Alisa Flatow, age 20, and Shoshana Ben-Yishai, age 16."
Palestinian Islamic Jihad is a militant group dedicated to the creation of an
Islamic Palestinian state and the destruction of Israel.
The organization rejects "any peaceful solution to the Palestinian cause" and affirms "jihad and the martyrdom style as the only choice for liberation."
Their manifesto refers to the United States as 'The Great Satan America' and indicates that the only purpose of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad is to destroy Israel and to end all Western influence in the region," he said.
Defendants Hatim Fariz and Ghassan Ballut made repeated visits to Palestinian Islamic Jihad Web sites, prosecutors say. In questioning FBI agent Russell Hayes about those visits, federal prosecutor Terry Zitek pointed out that many of them in the fall of 2002 came in the days following Islamic Jihad attacks.
Al-Arian, Ballut, Fariz and Sameeh Hammoudeh are charged with four conspiracy counts, including racketeering, providing material support to terrorists and conspiring to commit murder abroad.
Introduced into evidence included a grid listing 196 attacks claimed by the Islamic Jihad between 1984 and 1999. They were sorted by date and included the nature of each attack - stabbings, bombings, grenades and kidnappings - and the number of casualties.
Many included comments which support prosecutors' claims that extortion is part of the conspiracy to support the Islamic Jihad. "Our daggers and rifles will pursue them until the extraction of the last Jew from our land," said one comment from a 1990 attack. "Every Zionist is a target for our strikes," said another.
Al Arian is one of an army twisting the brains of our youth. And we are not talking about the obvious Ward
mosquehill Churchill here, we are talking the thousands of silent but deadly lefty professors.
Considering this country ranks 27th in Math and Science among industrialized nations while spending more on education than most of those very same countries, could we just to stick to reading, writing, and rithmatic and kick the goddamn terrorists out of the the country?
