A lot has been said and written about the ludicrously soft sentence lawyer Lynne Stewart got for distracting authorities and helping her terrorist client, Qaeda’s Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, spread his permission for murderous global jihad from his prison cell.
But not much has been made of her Arabic translator and co-convict/sentencee Mohammed Yousry. He also got a light sentence of less than two years, when he should have gotten 20.
He helped Stewart in distracting prison authorities and transmitting Sheikh Rahman’s jihadist fatwah. He translated the letter from Rahman that included the murderous fatwah. The FBI gave him a chance to cooperate and avoid prosecution, but Yousry refused.
More important is what his “day job” was. Yousry was a translator for ABC News and FOX News. How many documents did this jihad sympathizer translate with a slant to protect terrorists like Sheikh Rahman?
We’ll never know, but remember Yousry the next time you hear an Arabic translator on TV. They are often sympathizers with the global Islamic jihad. You can’t trust their slanted, sham translations.
Predictably, the mainstream media is trying to discount Yousry’s Muslim background, with UPI incorrectly claiming he’s a “non-Muslim” and the Washington Post saying he’s “not a practicing Muslim.” Both stress his born-again Christian wife.
But let that be a lesson in the dormancy of the jihad and the way it is ingrained into the Arab psyche to be awakened at some sudden point. Yousry knowingly translated a letter that he knew would spread Islamic violence and murder around the world. What he practiced is as relevant as the 9/11 hijackers patronizing prostitutes, bars, and casinos before the attacks.
It’s all about taqiyah (Muslim deception of Infidels), baby.
