Appeal Seeks to Overturn Guilty Plea, Life Sentence Because of Evidence Kept Secret, Counsel Choice Denied
“Moussaoui faced the choice between pleading guilty and facing a fundamentally unfair trial in a death-penalty case. This was an unconstitutional choice, and his plea was involuntary as a result,” the attorneys, Justin S. Antonipillai and Barbara L. Hartung, wrote in the redacted, 207-page document. The document asks the 4th Circuit to void Moussaoui’s guilty plea and order a new trial or, if the plea stands, to send the case back to a federal judge in Alexandria for re-sentencing.
“Are federal courts willing to compromise or eliminate constitutional protections if the indictment arises in the context of a terrorism case?” the appeal asks.
More Sharia encroachment — as well as a brazen flouting of immigration laws, which are weak enough in the first place. “Dial-a-marriage, eh! Islamic law allows telephone nuptials, which enables Muslims to sponsor loved ones to Canada,” by Tom Godfrey for the Toronto Sun via JW
Rome, 15 Feb. (AKI) – Islamic courts must be be ruled out in Britain and other Western countries if the democratic rights of all their citizens are to be safeguarded, Iranian born activist Homa Arjomand, told Adnkronos International (AKI).
Homa Arjomand spearheaded a successful campaign to end faith-based arbitration in Canada.
She strongly disagreed with remarks made earlier in February by the head of the Anglican Church, the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, who claimed that Islamic (Sharia) courts in Britain seemed “inevitable” and could aid “social cohesion”.
Gina Khan knows the horrors of polygamy. Her mother was married off at 15 and only when her father took his new bride to the other side of Pakistan did Gina’s mother discover that he already had another wife and five children. Later he married a third woman, but when Gina’s parents came to Britain, her mother made him divorce the third wife: “She knew that there was a law in this country that protected her. He never did it again.”
Gina’s mother was traumatised, though, and would burst into tears at the recollection. But the family brush with polygamy doesn’t stop there. Gina’s sister suffered the same fate and ended up being sectioned under the Mental Health Act. And Gina, when happily married to a Pakistani man, had to endure him being forced by his family to take a second wife: his 16-year-old cousin. With reluctance, she divorced him.
Just what America needs: more Muslims in congress!
INDIANAPOLIS — A convert to Islam stands an election victory away from becoming the second Muslim elected to Congress and a role model for a faith community seeking to make its mark in national politics.
Political newcomer Andre Carson is the Democratic nominee in a March 11 special election to succeed his late grandmother, Julia Carson, representing Indiana’s 7th District. She died in December of lung cancer, and her grandson is seeking to fill out the rest of her sixth term, which expires at year’s end.
If Andre Carson wins the Democratic-leaning Indianapolis district over a freshman Republican lawmaker and a longshot Libertarian candidate, he would join Rep. Keith Ellison, Minnesota Democrat, as the only Muslims elected to Congress.
Up to 1,500 Iraqis who worked as interpreters for British Armed Forces are to be flown to Britain, it was claimed last night.
The Iraqi interpreters and their families will be settled in two unnamed northern cities from April.
The resettlement operation, being co-ordinated by the Home Office, is alleged to be far bigger than previously thought – it had been reported that fewer than 100 interpreters would be affected.
Gordon Brown agreed to grant asylum to interpreters last year after it was disclosed that the lives of those working for the military in Iraq were in danger.

* MEMRI: Muggniyah was a big fish: Mughniya Trained Mahdi Army, Assassination Squads, the soldiers of Allah will miss him…
The Sadrist Shi’ites in Iraq, led by Muqtada Al-Sadr, have declared a three-day mourning period for Imad Mughniya.
An Iraqi security source said that Mughniya had entered Iraq via Iran, and had trained some 500 members of the Mahdi Army, which belongs to the Sadrists.
He added that he had also trained a number of squads in planning and carrying out assassinations within Iraq.

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah refused a personal plea from President Bill Clinton to help capture Hezbollah terrorist Imad Mugniyah in 1996, according to former White House counterterrorism chief Richard Clarke, now an ABC News consultant.
Clarke says the CIA learned that Mugniyah, wanted for a string of terror attacks, had boarded a commercial flight in Khartoum that was scheduled to stop in Riyadh.
“We appealed to the Saudis to grab him when the plane landed, and they refused,” Clarke said in an interview broadcast Wednesday on ABC “World News with Charles Gibson.”

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan â€” A suicide bombing Sunday at an outdoor dog fighting competition killed 80 people and wounded dozens more, a governor said, in what appeared to be the deadliest terror attack in Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban in 2001.
More than 300 people had gathered to watch the event on the western edge of the southern city of Kandahar, including several Afghan militia leaders. Kandahar Gov. Asadullah Khalid said 80 had been killed. Abdullah Fahim, a Health Ministry spokesman, said about 90 people were wounded.
Witnesses reported gunfire after the blast from bodyguards. It was not immediately clear if the bullets killed anyone.
Faizullah Qar Gar, a resident of Kandahar who was at the dog fight, said bodyguards of militant commanders opened fire on the crowd after the bombing.
Hate, of course, is the third rail of today’s public discourse. By saying that he hates anything, Wilders has rendered himself anathema to the mainstream. But when Wilders says, “I have a problem with Islamic tradition, culture, ideology. Not with Muslim people,” how is that different from saying that he has a problem with any other tradition, culture, ideology? Would his mainstream critics really reject such a statement aimed at Nazism? Should any ideology, any system of beliefs, really be placed off-limits for criticism? Should criticism of any ideology really be classified as “racism”? After all, it was no lesser a luminary than CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper who said, “Islam is an ideology. It’s not a race.” So if it is an ideology, it can be liked or disliked, and subjected to critical scrutiny like any other, no?
