Tarek Mehanna has been charged with conspiring “to kill American troops in Iraq, assassinate two unnamed U.S. politicians and shoot shoppers in U.S. malls.” So he is a natural ally of hate-America Leftists.
Leftist/Jihadist Alliance Update: “‘Occupy” protesters branch out,” by Christine McConville for the Boston Herald, October 10 (thanks to Wimpy):
The downtown protest group Occupy Boston threw its proverbial doors open yesterday, and played host to supporters of accused terrorist Terak Mehanna, who are looking to raise awareness of the Sudbury man’s upcoming trial.
The Tarek Mehanna Support Committee came to Occupy Boston’s ever-evolving tent city on the Rose Kennedy Greenway to say Mehanna, a Muslim American pharmacist, is a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment.
The U.S. government says Mehanna, 28, provided “material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization,” and acted as a “media wing” for al-Qaeda.
Occupy Boston hosted the pro-Mehanna rally, but, officially, the leaderless group doesn’t have a position on the case….
Of course not!
