Islamic cleric gets life for inciting war
Virginia-based scholar says he ‘will not admit guilt’
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A prominent U.S.-based Islamic scholar who exhorted his followers after the Sept. 11 attacks to join the Taliban and fight U.S. troops was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison…
…But he was accused of telling a group of young Muslim men just days after the attack that an apocalyptic battle between Muslims and nonbelievers was at hand and that Muslims were obligated to engage in holy war. He told the group that defense of the Taliban was a requirement and that U.S. troops were a legitimate target, according to court testimony.
I notice he didn’t hotfoot his own little butt over there to throw bombs.
