Why Do We Pamper These People?

Well, this is good news, in a way....

ATLANTA (Reuters) - A U.S. citizen has pleaded guilty in federal court to providing material support to the militant Palestinian group Hamas, the Justice Department said on Friday.

Mohamed Shorbagi, 42, who served as imam at a mosque in Rome, Georgia, was charged in August with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization, a charge that carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

"Shorbagi provided the support through donations to the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development knowing that some or all of the money was in fact destined for Hamas," a Justice Department statement said.

Shorbagi also "hosted high-level Hamas officials" at the mosque, it said.

It's great he was caught. It's great he's been convicted.

But is sending someone like this to a regular prison the answer?

How about stripping him of his citizenship, and dropping him off in whatever 3rd world 7th century hellhole he crawled out of.

Either that, or how about a Muslim-only supermax prison in, say, the far reaches of Alaska. Send them somewhere where they can't recruit (think Hosay Padeeya) and they can't escape.

Of course, the optimal solution is the simplest. Charge, try, and convict for the actual crime, treason, and get a rope.

2 And some say we need these people in our country. I say why? Mass deportation is the only answer. The longer we wait the worst it gets. Even the so called good muslims have little muslims that don't neccessarily agree with them. OUTLAW ISLAM.
Want to know why Australia doesn't have a problem with blacks. Simple. They don't have any. Wish to prevent future problems with muslims. Simple. Ship them back to where the hell they came from.

4 He's in an American prison which means he has some rights and can still operate his terrorist support. If he's an Imam then he can ask to lead prayers and continue to recruit support for Hamas.

Vinnie's right, strip him off his citizenship, bank account and government auction all his property. Take the money from it to repay the cost of processing him, keeping him in jail and deportation. If there's any money left over, use it to pay for the lawyer that will have to fight against the ACLU and CAIR which obviously will file suit.

Vinnie, public hanging would be good but I like China's way better. They execute death row criminals by firing squad and charge the criminal's family for the bullets.

6 "Why do we pamper these people"? Because we have been educated to pamper these people. They are minorities. A group that must be protected at all costs.

7 Just thinking. Some food for thought in the interest of fair play. If an immigrant from Ireland sent money to the IRA, would we feel the same? Of course, the IRA didn't wish to kill us so I may have just answered my own question. But then again, does Hamas wish to kill us? The IRA kills our allies the British. Hamas kills our allies the Israelis. Where is the outrage?
