Written by Kender and crossposted from STACLUAs if the ACLU’s hypocrisy regarding the Boy Scouts and religious organizations weren’t enough now we have them stepping up and stating “the evidence you have is old.”
In its latest filing before the federal district court in Dallas on behalf of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and its affiliate organization, the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) in the Hamas-terrorism financing case, the ACLU has made a noteworthy admission.
Rather than deny that there is copious evidence tying ISNA and NAIT to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the brief argues that such evidence is merely dated. In a curious footnote on page 7, the reply states:
Assuming the authenticity of documents’ dates, the most recent documents to mention either ISNA or NAIT are dated 1991, Gov. Exhs. 3-3 and 3-85, but the majority of the documents are older. Almost all of the numerous exhibits that purport to show financial transactions and that contain any mention of ISNA or NAIT are dated 1988 and 1989 (there are two dated 1990), almost a decade before the majority of the overt acts the government alleges in support of its conspiracy charges against the HLF defendants.
So ISNA and NAIT are not saying that the documents tying their organizations to Hamas are “inauthentic,” but that the problem with the evidence is just that it is old. Then, even more curiously, the reply goes on to argue something that the government has not even alleged:
Even if the “evidence” provided some basis for alleging criminality against petitioners, the government’s discussion of it shows the government utterly fails to grasp the singular weight and consequence that an official accusation of criminal conduct carries in our criminal justice system and in our society.
But, of course, the government has not charged ISNA or NAIT with criminal conduct, or the two groups would be indicted in their own right, rather than un-indicted co-conspirators who worked with the Holy Land for Relief and Development (HLF), the defendant and alleged Hamas-front. The reply brief then, as Shakespeare might write, “doth protest too much.”
Actually the evidence they have submitted is old, but their support goes on, as the rest of the article shows. What the ACLU is basically saying is “sure, our guys may have supported the terrorists in the old days, before they were labeled a terrorist group but where’s your evidence of recent activity?” If they had recent evident the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and its affiliate organization, the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) wouldn’t be un-indicted co-conspirators but would have been up on charges of their own.
The ACLU is one of the most dangerous organizations in this country today. Their defense of our enemies is mind boggling and possibly treasonous. I, for one, can’t wait to see them brought up on charges of sedition and tossed in Gitmo to watch some guard try to flush their holy book down the commode.
Chalk it up to the ACLU’s penchant for defending the bad guy, standing with evil and against all that is good. When the scores are tallied someday the ACLU will go down in history along with other groups that have worked so hard to destroy civilization and enslave humanity, like the Khmer Rouge, The Soviets, Che Guevara, Chairman Mao, Hitler, the Visigoths and all of Mohammed’s followers throughout history.
