CAIR Gloating Over Mistrial

• Views: 642

You knew this was coming. Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR, listed as unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial, are crowing and gloating today even though the government is going to retry the case. Here’s their latest paid press release masquerading as a news report: CAIR: HLF Mistrial a ‘Stunning Defeat’ for Prosecution.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called today’s declaration of a mistrial in the case against the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Muslim charity a “stunning defeat” for the prosecution.

CAIR also said the absence of a single guilty verdict on 197 charges brought by the prosecution in the terror financing trial will help reinforce the Muslim community’s faith in America’s system of justice.

The jury initially brought back “not guilty” verdicts on the government’s most serious charges of material support for terrorism against the five HLF officials. However, jurors were deadlocked on other charges, forcing the judge to declare the mistrial.

In a statement reacting to the declaration of a mistrial, CAIR Board Chairman Parvez Ahmed applauded the efforts of the jury.

Ahmed’s statement said in part:

“After 19 days of deliberation, the jurors did not return even a single guilty verdict on any of the almost 200 charges against these men, whose only ‘crime’ was providing food, clothing and shelter to Palestinian women and children. It seems clear that the majority of the jury agreed with many observers of the trial who believe the charges were built on fear, not facts. This is a stunning defeat for prosecutors and a victory for America’s legal system.”
