Ohio Imam Arrested for Terrorist Ties
FOX News is reporting...
CLEVELAND — Federal authorities arrested an Islamic religious leader Friday as they began the process of deporting him for lying about ties to terrorist groups.Deportation? Deportation? That's the punishment? You've got to be kidding me? Is this some sort of a sick twisted joke? This clown should be locked up for life and the key thrown away. Imam Fawaz Damra is a threat to the United States and our allies in the Middle East. What are the Feds doing? This is like an ugly game of Monopoly gone bad. Here you go Mr. Imam you've got one free get of jail card. Meanwhile Joe Six Pack sits in front of the boob tube stuffing his face with turkey consumed by the split up of Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey.
Imam Fawaz Damra, the spiritual leader of Ohio's largest mosque, was convicted in June 2004 of concealing ties to three groups that the U.S. government classifies as terrorist organizations when he applied for U.S. citizenship in 1994.
That conviction was upheld in March, clearing the way for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to begin deportation proceedings.
Damra, 44, was arrested early Friday without incident, the immigration office said.
"With today's arrest, ICE begins the process of removing from the United States a criminal alien who has unequivocally supported terrorists and terrorist organizations," Brian Moskowitz, special agent with the federal office in Detroit, said in a statement.
Why don't they bring Imam Fawaz Damra up on charges of conspiracy to aid and abet terrorism and convict him like they did New York attorney Lynne Stewart?
