Skip to comments.Lynne Stewart's Just Desserts
Posted on 02/12/2005 10:39:15 AM PST by MisterRepublican
American jurisprudence and homeland security aligned yesterday, as a jury of her peers found terrorist lawyer-cum-facilitator Lynne Stewart guilty of aiding international Islamist murderers. After 13 days of deliberation, the federal jury found Stewart and her two co-defendants guilty on all counts, including providing material support to terrorism, conspiracy, and defrauding the government.
The saga began in 1995, when Stewart defended and befriended the Blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. In the ensuring years, Stewart with the aid of co-defendants Ahmed Abdel Sattar and Mohamed Yousry illegally passed on fatwas from the sheikh to his fanatical footsoldiers in the Islamic Group, an Egyptian-based terror cadre dedicated to replacing the secular government of Hosni Mubarak with an Islamist dicatorship akin to the Taliban.
U.S. Attorney Andrew Dember told the jury in his closing argument that Stewart helped Rahman perpetrate a kind of jailbreak by conveying messages to his terrorist followers overseas. In the words of the seven-count indictment issued by John Ashcrofts Justice Department, Stewart and Yousry did provide personnel to international terrorists by making Abdel Rahman available as a co-conspirator.
The betrayal of her nation worked like this: Sattar received messages from Islamic Group terrorists and passed them on to Yousry. Lynn Stewart then visited Rahman in his Minnesota prison cell under the pretense of giving legal advice. Yousry, who acted as Lynne Stewarts interpreter, then passed the messages on to the sheikh and took down his murderous fatwas. While this was going on, Stewart made nonsensical comments to give the appearance that she was carrying on a legal discussion with her client.

May your fat posterior rot in an unpleasant women's prison. Er, excuse the redundancy there.
Can anyone confirm that for us with a pic?
I was surprised to see the jury deliberated for 13 days. NO rush to judgement there.
And it couldn't have happened to a more deserving person.
LMAO - Any person listening to most of that stuff is predisposed to believing the worst so this admonition applies only to the open minded - By definition, not the Uber Left Lib.
"Lest patriotic Americans become unduly enthusiastic at the outcome of yesterdays trial, they should bear in mind a disturbing reality: It is Ratners synopsis rather than Gonzalezs that will resonate on American campuses across the country."
That is the unfortunate fact. As above, the predisposition of these people makes facts irrelevant. They are interested in only the line not the facts. IMO Unredeemable and to be watched not talked with.
She is downright fugly..
They had better have law enforcement all over that treasonous pile of dung with orders to shoot if she tries to flee to Canada before her sentencing.
"Can anyone confirm that for us with a pic?"
NO! NO! Don't do it!
what about the toxic lealage post shooting. You'd need a Haz Mat team.

Put her in a cell with Saddam. Word is he hasn't been talking. This'll break him.
Little did we know that Madelyn Murray O'Hare had a twin sister.
Good title description, she likes dessert.
How about stick her and Saddam, the blind sheik, Noreiga, and Ward Churchill in a jail cell and have The Real World: Terrorist Edition on TV? We can watch them get on each others nerves and hopefully issue fatwas against each other.
***Stewart is still available to speak in your city or town until she goes to jail. Undoubtedly, some universities will continue to take up her offer. (After all, Mumia abu-Jamal continues to lecture on the college circuit from prison.)***
She's walking around FREE?????? I can't believe this. We are TOO nice. By what law does a convicted TERRORIST get to walk out of the courtroom and pursue her habit of speaking engagements in our colleges and universitites?
"The betrayal of her nation ..." has never been the case because the US has NEVER been her "nation!" Since the mid'30s, New York City liberals have worked to destroy the US from within. They were trained and paid by the communists and worked for them to try to destroy. When the communists went away, these people didn't. They continued to work against the US on behalf of any one who shared their views. That's why they are "neocommunists."
"Stewart made nonsensical comments to give the appearance that she was carrying on a legal discussion with her client."
They should have charged her with treason and hanged her higher that Mrs. Surrat.
