Minnesota: Some Muslims outraged over jihad terror sentences, Hamas-linked CAIR planning lawsuit

Well, well, well, so some Muslim are outraged at the "harsh" sentences their jihadi brethren received.  Well, I too am outraged by the sentences, but because they are totally inadequate.  Since Jihad is by definition world wide, and since by the Quran, there is no time limit on waging jihad, then those convicted of any terrorist offence must be subject to one of two sentences;  Either life without parole when no injury or deaths result from the activity, or the death penalty for any conviction of terrorist activity resulting in bodily harm or death. 


Minnesota: Some Muslims outraged over jihad terror sentences, Hamas-linked CAIR planning lawsuit

Not wasting a second to claim victim status. "Somali reaction to al-Shabab sentences mixed," by Amy Forliti for the Associated Press, May 19 (thanks to all who sent this in):

    MINNEAPOLIS - Wide-ranging sentences handed down in the yearslong federal investigation into recruiting and financing for the terrorist group al-Shabab have kindled a mix of outrage, confusion and relief among members of Minnesota's large Somali community.

    Some say the 10- and 20-year prison sentences for two Minnesota women who sent money to the group were too harsh, especially since two men who traveled to Somalia and joined al-Shabab got three years. The attorney for one man sentenced to 20 years in prison has already filed a notice of appeal; more are expected.

    But others say justice has been served, and authorities said the nine penalties doled out last week show that those who support terrorism will be held accountable....

    Prosecutors have said the men and women were part of a "deadly pipeline," sending money and men to al-Shabab, which the U.S. government has designated a terrorist organization for its links to al-Qaida and its tactics that include suicide bombings and assassinations. At least 22 men left Minnesota for Somalia since 2007 in what has been called one of the largest efforts to recruit U.S. fighters for a foreign terrorist organization.

    Authorities say the conspiracy began in 2007, when small groups of Somali men began holding secret meetings about returning to their homeland to wage jihad against Ethiopians. Ethiopian troops had been brought into Somalia a year earlier by its U.N.-backed government, but many Somalis viewed them as invaders.
