Justice for Al-Timimi. From AP, :
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A prominent Islamic scholar was convicted Tuesday of encouraging followers in the days after the Sept. 11 attacks to join the Taliban and fight U.S. troops.
Jurors reached their verdict in their seventh day of deliberations in the trial of Ali al-Timimi.
Al-Timini faces a mandatory maximum sentence of life in prison, federal prosecutors said.
Prosecutors have said al-Timimi was a respected scholar who enjoyed “rock star” status among his followers and that he used that influence to guide them into holy war against the United States….
Al-Timimi’s lawyers have said he only counseled young Muslims after Sept. 11 that they might be wise to leave the United States because it would become difficult to practice their faith in this country.
Al-Timimi’s lawyers also announced that the bridges they have been selling are now available for substantially reduced prices. Everything must go!
