Poor Sami Al-Arian - In Trouble Again

Sami Al-Arian, the Tampa-based admitted supporter of terror, just had the book thrown at him, again. This time the charge is criminal contempt of court.

As reported by Josh Gerstein in The New York Sun, Al-Arian's latest troubles began when he refused to testify before a Virginia grand jury in its investigation of the International Institute of Islamic Thought.

Al-Arian's refusal to testify was based on a non-existent portion of his plea agreement that allegedly did not require him to answer the government's call to testify. Essentially, Al-Arian was arguing that he, an admitted felon, had greater rights than you or I.
Unless you have sympathy for Al-Arian, remember this-- he supports Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a virulent terror group that targets civilians.
