ACLU: Tolerating Terrorists 'Welcomes Religious and Ethnic Diversity'

Perhaps it's time for someone to remind the ACLU that they're supposed to be the American Civil Liberties Union, not the Middle Eastern Brave Jihadi Babyhunter Civil Liberties Union.

From The Counterterrorism Blog:
The American Civil Liberties Union has sent a letter (Acrobat) to Department of Justice calling for the dismissal of the remaining charges against former University of South Florida professor Sami al-Arian. Citing Al-Arian’s acquittal on 8 of the 17 charges against him, the ACLU claims that since “the two most serious charges” were thrown out, that al-Arian should be set free, and that such a move would demonstrate that the United States “welcomes religious and ethnic diversity.”
Stop the ACLU reminds us that the ACLU has a history of supporting terrorists:
PIJ is not the only Palestinian terrorist group to find its way onto the ACLU’s docket. There is more. Indeed, it seems that the ACLU is a terrorist best friend.

Just recently the ACLU filed a lawsuit defending someone accused of funding Hamas.
