An associate of Sami Al-Arian. “Florida terrorism suspect gets 37-month sentence,” from Reuters, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
TAMPA, Fla., July 25 (Reuters) – A co-defendant in the Florida terrorism trial of ex-college professor Sami al-Arian was sentenced to three years and one month in prison on Tuesday for providing support to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Hatem Fariz was sentenced after he agreed to plead guilty to one count of making or receiving contributions for Islamic Jihad, which the United States lists as a terrorist organization and blames for more than 100 deaths in Israel.
As part of a deal with federal prosecutors, the government dropped seven other charges against Fariz.
The 37-month sentence was the minimum Federal Judge James Moody could have imposed under sentencing guidelines. Fariz could have been sentenced to as much as 47 months in prison.
Fariz made no statement during his sentencing hearing in Tampa, but his lawyer said he believed any funds he sent to the Islamic Jihad were for social programs.
Of course. And the contributors to Hitler no doubt were just financing the Autobahn.
