al-arian_family_final.jpgThis case is one of the most severe cases of injustice that Muslims have faced in recent history. Unfortunately, some of our brothers (like this) have fallen to the right-wing Islamophobic propaganda against our brother.

As Imam Mahdi notes, “As a community we must continue to insist that the government end its manipulation of the U.S. Judicial System and to demand the release of Dr. Al-Arian.”

Al-Arian’s Federal District Court trial in Tampa commenced in June, 2005. The six-month trial featured more than 80 witnesses and 400 transcripts of intercepted phone conversations and faxes. At the end of the prosecution’s case, Al-Arian’s attorneys rested without offering a defense. On December 6, 2005, after 13 days of deliberations, the jury acquitted him on eight of 17 counts, while remaining deadlocked 10-2 in favor of acquittal on the other nine. Of fifty-one charges against the four men, not one resulted in a conviction.
