Today CAIR is crying and stomping its feet (yet again) over the punishment of a terror conspirator and funder. They bemoan the punishment ---too harsh. Why don't they ever cry and whine over those who want to destroy America? I wonder if they'll sue over prison menu choices too. As a side point, this terror lover is teaching your children.
A former professor accused of providing money to Hamas terrorists was sentenced Wednesday to more than 11 years in prison and fined $5,000 for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury.

From today's CAIR alert:
CHICAGO, IL, 11/21/07) - The Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago) today expressed dismay at the more than 11 year sentence given to Dr. Abdelhaleem Ashqar for refusing to testify before a grand jury looking into possible terror financing in the Middle East.
Although a jury earlier acquitted Ashqar, a Palestinian-American and former professor at Washington's Howard University, of all terror-related charges, the federal prosecution sought a life term, a sentence that would not normally be imposed unless he had been convicted of the most serious charge against him.
"We are dismayed that the judge's sentence apparently ignores Dr. Ashqar's acquittal on the most serious charges and instead reflects a prison term that could only have been imposed if he had actually been convicted of those charges," said CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Ahmed Rehab. "The excessive sentence is not in the spirit of the American justice system."
Yo CAIR, the more serious charge was a life sentence. I'd say your friend came out rather nicely nicely. American justice? Since when, you live by sharia.
