Tarek Mehanna and Uncle Sam !April 21, 2012
Who is Tarek Mehanna ? 29 year old Muslim Egyptian-American and graduate of the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. He is a devout Muslim who is respected in the local Muslim and interfaith communities, and who gives back to his community by fulfilling the roles of brother, son, educator, mentor, scholar, professional, advocate and friend.
Tarek is described by those who know him well as humble, reserved, warm, compassionate, intelligent, charismatic, well-read, and dedicated. He has spent time delivering Friday sermons and directing youth study circles, speaking out against injustice and advocating for Muslim prisoners, teaching grade school students and helping those in need. Tarek is described as a man who is always giving.
He is a person with strong ethical values who refuses to compromise them regardless of the circumstances.
For several years Tarek has been victim to FBI surveillance and harassment. He was targeted for being a politically conscious, outspoken Muslim leader. In an attempt to silence and use him, the FBI approached Tarek to become an informant. When Tarek, a man of integrity, refused to be an FBI informant against his community, the FBI continued to pursue him with threats of criminal charges if he would not comply, before finally arresting him in the fall of 2008 and then again on October 21st, 2009.
After this 2009 arrest, Tarek was denied bail twice and spent over 2 years imprisoned at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility in 23-hour solitary confinement awaiting trial.
Tarek’s trial began on October 27th, 2011 and went on for 2 months. He was convicted on all 7 counts on December 20th, 2011. Tarek is currently held in isolation at PCCF where he will remain until his sentencing hearing on April 12th, 2012. He faces a possible life sentence
Uncle Sam Dual Standard :For more than three decades uncle sam portray worldwide as a symbol of LIBERALISM ,SECULARIM, FREEDOM OF SPEECH…when its come aginst his intrest ! uncle sam shows his true colours either dual standard. One who just post some video online or criticise US foreign policy, particularly to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan label him as TERRORIST or charged him for supporting alqeed.
We have witnessed Uncle Sam oppression against protesters of Occupy Wall Street and implementation of National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which contains slightly watered-down provisions giving the military a front line role in domestic terrorism cases which allow for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without charge or trial in a military prison. Of course this was met with huge negative reactions towards detaining any US citizen without due process anywhere in the world if s/he is merely suspected of any terrorist behavior.
So by inlarge its an eyeopener for those who admire democracy ! Democracy only protect the intrest of 1% elite and oppress 99% ,wage war inoder to protect the intrest of multinational corporations globally .
SO UNCLE SAM STOP ADVOCATING DEMOCRACY WE AS MUSLIMS ARE NOW WELL AWARE OF YOUR TACTICS …SURELY A REVIVAL IS ON ITS WAY WHICH LEAD TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF KHILAFHA WHICH IS WORLD WIDE GLOBAL AUTHORITY PROTECT NOT ONLY MUSLIMS BUT WHOLE HUMANITY FROM YOUR CURSE ….INSHALLAH
