Jihadis on our doorstep

Terrorist lawyer who attacked Israel, defended 9/11, now sets Biden immigration policy

OK, I agree with Dershowitz that had Bin Laden been captured alive, his defense lawyer should be recognized as a hero - after all, all the pond scum and worse deserve representation. My wife defends child rapists but doesn't agree with what they did. She is upholding their Constitutional right to a proper defense.

But this laywer is not just trying to defend his client

n his columns, as in his activism, Ramzi Kassem repeatedly justified terrorism as a reaction to its victims. “Terrorism is but one of many reactions to oppression and dispossession and not their cause.”

While at Columbia University, Kassem co-founded Turath, an association of Muslim students, and then Qanun at Columbia Law. A fellow student described these hateful groups as having brought “under the guidance of Mr. Kassem… speakers to this campus that support violence against American and Israeli civilians… defended the genocidal program of Hamas.”

The Columbia letter noted that, “one speaker, disavowed by many of America’s pro-Palestinian activists, prior to being invited to Columbia, had said that Jews exist only to ‘dip their matzahs in the blood of Palestinian children.’

This antisemitic blood libel didn’t seem to have interfered with Kassem’s career prospects.

You Islamophobe!
Meet another one. As far as I am concerned, Muslims earned the hatred.

I was thinking at least as much about the Biden gang as about the islamists (and yes, I distinguish that from just “Muslims”; I know very decent Muslims).
