Terror-Linked Front Groups Beg Judge to Clear Their Names

• Views: 946

There’s the jihad of the sword, and the jihad of the courts, and the ACLU is joining with the legal jihadists again to promote Islamist front groups: Groups Want Names Cleared in Holy Land Case.

They just keep coming back with this stuff, no matter how many times they’re refused. And the way our legal system currently works, eventually they will probably be successful.

Two major Muslim organizations, the North American Islamic Trust and the Islamic Society of North America, are asking a federal judge to rebuke prosecutors for publicly naming the groups as unindicted co-conspirators in a federal criminal case against officers of an alleged Hamas front, the Holy Land Foundation of Richardson, Texas.

In a motion filed yesterday in federal court in Dallas, lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union contend that prosecutors violated the constitutional rights of NAIT and ISNA by branding them as conspirators even though they were not indicted in the case and have not been charged with wrongdoing.

“It is an egregious departure from regular practice,” an ACLU attorney, Hina Shamsi, said in an interview. “The smear happened and the notoriety of our clients as a result has spread and there’s no way they are able to defend themselves.”

In court papers, leaders of NAIT and ISNA said the co-conspirator designation has hampered their relations with law enforcement entities, such as the FBI, and stymied interfaith dialogue with Jewish organizations.

It shouldn’t have taken a co-conspirator designation to wake up the FBI and interfaith groups, of course; these radical Islamic front groups make only token attempts to hide their ideologies.
