Those who read my blog regularly probably remember a post a while back about Sami Al Arian. Turns out, he has a great deal of supporters in the United States that claim he is an innocent man being persecuted by the US government. For those who have any doubt as to his thoughts/beliefs/intentions, this article does a good job of citing particular speeches, letters, and other documentation of his words and attitudes. Now, we can argue about how aggressively or not the judiciary is going after him and how fair it is, but after reading how he compares Jews to pigs and monkeys, among other things, can you really claim he is innocent?
