Dr. Sami Al-Arian Hunger Strike

Former University of South Florida professor Sami Al-Arian stopped taking food or water last week to protest a third attempt by prosecutors to compel his testimony. Dr. Al-Arian was transferred Tuesday morning, on the 9th day of his hunger strike, to a federal medical facility in Butner, North Carolina run by the Bureau of Prisons.

Since beginning his no water or food hunger strike on March 3, Dr. Al-Arian has lost 23 pounds and grown weaker. He has not yet been given an IV. A doctor who examined him on Monday said he is suffering from starvation and dehydration.

Dr. Al-Arian was acquitted by a jury of the major charges brought against him by the U.S. Government. Despite reaching a plea agreement, the Government has refused to release Dr. Al-Arian.

Given that Dr. Al-Arian has been on a hunger strike since March 3,
2008 we urgently ask all conscientious and justice-seeking individuals to call, email or write officials to ask for an immediate end to Dr. Al-Arian's suffering and to responsibly care for his deteriorating health.

I DON'T SEE ALL THE PEOPLE (AL-ARIAN FUNDED) "PALESTINIAN ISLAMIC JIHAD" KILLED EATING MUCH EITHER. Let them sort it out together in the afterlife. The innocent pizza parlor victims will NOT be pleased to see Mr. Al-Arian!!!!!

No one these days disputes Islamic Jihad (that he was North America's primary fundraising arm of from the Tampa campus) is a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. Even Hamas has to tell them to stop killing innocent people...

People need to learn that CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) is basically an apologist front for radical Islam and not to take their words on Al-Arian at face value...

Eat some air Al-Arian... It's more than you deserve.
