The five jihadists plotted and killed thousands in the name of Islam on September 11, 2001, in the largest and bloodiest attack on American soil in our nation's history, and we are setting aside American jurisprudence out of "respect" and submission to that very ideology? Ramadan is exactly when these jihadist savages should be put on trial and sentenced to death.
No matter how many times I read and repeat that, it never fails to astound and shake me. Anywhere American law and Islamic law conflict, American law has to give way. Is that not the defination of surrender to the conquering ideology? 3,000 Americans are weeping in their graves.

Muslim holy period delays Sept. 11 case at Gitmo
A U.S. military judge agreed Monday to postpone the next court hearings at the Guantanamo Bay prison for five men charged in the Sept. 11 attacks to avoid a conflict with the Muslim holy period of Ramadan.
The judge issued a short order postponing the next pretrial hearings at the U.S. base in Cuba until Aug. 22-26 at the request of all five defendants, said James Connell, a lawyer for one of the accused.
The hearings had been scheduled to run from Aug. 8-12, which fall during the last 10 days of Ramadan, a period in which devout Muslims fast during the day and pray during the night. That would make it difficult for the accused to participate in their defense, said Connell, a lawyer for Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali.
"It's very difficult to pay attention to sometimes intricate legal proceedings when you haven't had any sleep and you haven't had any food," Connell said.
They eat like horses in the morning and after sundown. Gimme a break.
