Libs: 'Jihad Protected Free Speech'
At least these moonbats are being honest. They embrace calls to destroy the United States, murder her citizens, and kill her soldiers as the free exercise of speech and religion.
From the Washington Times:
Democratic strategist and former Michael Dukakis campaign manager Susan Estrich, and the former American Civil Liberties Union president in Massachusetts, Harvey Silvergate, recently joined the attorneys representing two alleged Boston al Qaeda funders.Estrich (right) and her co-conspirators don't mean just talking about jihad either. They want their clients to be free to actively support it through funding [emphasis added]:
In their motion, attorneys Mrs. Estrich, Malick Ghachem, Norman Zalkind and Elizabeth Lunt, argue that the defendants merely exercised their religious freedom and obligation to give "zakat" (Islamic charity).Oh, just to rub a little salt in, they also say that contributions to brave jihadi babyhunters should be tax exempt, as well.
Their motion cites Chapter 9, verse 60 of the Koran, which describes "those entitled to receive zakat." According to the definition of zakat in The Encyclopedia of Islam, "category 7" of eligible recipients are "volunteers engaged in jihad" for whom the zakat cover "living expenses and the expenses of their military service (animals, weapons)."
On the seventh level of Hell, Vidkun Quisling is laughing at us.
