As you probably noticed (several readers did–and thanks for watching my spelling back!), I unwittingly typoed the word “Mississippi” on my site this morning. Sorry for that, but I was in a hurry to get to court to finish my trial to which I alluded, yesterday.
I just got back from the “NOT GUILTY” verdict (that took the jury 25 minutes to reach) and celebrating with my client and his family.
As I noted, the case involved something I believe in. My client is a Muslim who is not religious and who publicly denounced Hezbollah, likes Israel, and worked undercover for the government as an informant. And he is married to a Jewish woman. Because of all these things, he was framed by a gang of Hezbollah thugs–one of whom was a Hezbollah terrorist, and gullible prosecutors bought into it.
Happily, I got my client acquitted, but the case demonstrates everything that is wrong with how America treats the few moderate, pro-American Muslims and how they treat the serious terrorist supporters and enablers.
More on that later in an extensive column. Suffice it to say, I’m very proud. Today was a great day in the war against Islamic terrorists on our soil, but sadly, only a blip in our usual political correctness.
I was lucky to have such a great and intelligent jury. Stay tuned for more.
