Following Condileeza Rice's visit of condolence to the British embassy, a heavily funded Muslim office which is known for supporting U.S. government policies urged U.S. Muslims to send condolences to the British. Previously CAIR has damaged the cause of U.S. Muslims by urging them to bloc vote for Bush. Muslims must look carefully at what's going on here. ----------------------------------------------------

Masaud Khan, Seif Chapman, Hammad Abdur Raheem to be "re-sentenced".
The Hearing is Scheduled for July 29.

We urge Muslims to attend the hearing. These Muslims are quite innocent and have not been convicted of any violence against anyone. Some legal tricks were used by the prosecution to give them long sentences. Even the judge was distressed by the sentencing guidelines she received. Hopefully this time their sentences will be sharply reduced.
[These are the innocents who were dubbed "Virginia Jihad Network" by Ashcroft's people.]

Here is a brief message from Masaud's mother followed by the address for the court followed by directions:

"Masaud, Seif and Hammad's hearing will be before Judge Brinkema at 1:30 in the afternoon on July 29th. I would appreciate everyone's prayers for them during another difficult time."

American Indian Leader Moved and Put Into Solitary Confinement

[With thanks to Sis. Hamdiyyeh, with ref. to Pacifica radio.]

Jailed Native American Leader Leonard Peltier was transferred from Leavenworth prison in Kansas to the U.S. Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana where he was put in solitary confinement.

Peltier was convicted for the deaths of two FBI agents who died during a 1975 shoot-out with the American Indian Movement known as AIM on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Peltier is serving two life sentences for the fatal shootings but has always maintained his innocence. He has been in jail for almost 30 years.

Peltier has been serving time in Leavenworth prison in Kansas. Last week, his grandson went to visit him and found out that he had been abruptly transferred and put in the hole, or solitary confinement, at the U.S. Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana.
