The local moderated Muslim American Society email list recently distributed an email in support of jailed Palestinian Islamic Jihad head, Sami Al-Arian and his currently on-going hunger strike:

<< 9 Days on Strike for Justice >>

Dr. Al-Arian Still on Hunger Strike

WASHINGTON, DC - Jan. 30, 2007 (MASNET) Dr. Sami Al-Arian is currently on the 9th day of his hunger strike at Northern Neck Regional County Jail in Warsaw, Virginia, to protest continued government harassment. He recently received an 18 month sentence for his ethical stand against testifying before a grand jury. The 18 month sentence was given to Dr. Al-Arian despite a plea agreement he had with the government, which included a no-cooperation clause. (See: http://www.masnet.org/takeaction.asp?id=3987)

Many in the legal community insist that Dr. Al-Arian's additional prison sentence is tantamount to double jeopardy. Despite the government's spending of millions of dollars to convict Dr. Al-Arian, a jury in South Florida was unable to deliver a guilty verdict on any of the charges in Dr. Al-Arian's initial case. The conditions under which Dr. Al-Arian has been incarcerated; and the continued efforts by the government to keep him incarcerated, despite a previous agreement for his release and exit from the United States, has raised serious concerns within the Human Rights and legal community, included Amnesty International.

JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED!

FREE DR. AL-ARIAN NOW!

ACTION TO BE TAKEN

Please write to the following individuals to ask for an immediate end to Dr. Al-Arian's suffering:...etc...

Funny word that..."justice"...what would be a "just" punishment for an organizer of a group like PIJ who's said things like, “The link with the brothers in Hamas is very good and making steady progress, and there are serious attempts at unification and permanent coordination. I call upon you to try to extend true support to the jihad effort so that operations such as these can continue.” and “God cursed those who are the sons of Israel, through David and Jesus, the son of Mary. . . . Those people, God made monkeys and pigs. . . . Let us damn America, let us damn Israel, let us damn them and their allies until death.”

I think he's up to day 12 now. Personally, I just ate an ice cream, which I should not have done. I'm always concerned about how the power of the State is used -- it is truly awesome and awful -- but concerned with Al-Arian personally? Not so much. Sympathy plays from a guy like this are utterly pathetic.
