Aiding and abetting the enemy. via US-born Taliban fighter wins prison prayer lawsuit | KVOA.com | Tucson, Arizona.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – A federal judge has ruled that a convicted Taliban fighter should be allowed to pray daily in a group with other Muslim inmates at their high-security prison in Indiana.
U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson sided on Friday with John Walker Lindh, an American convicted of fighting alongside the Taliban.
Alongside? WTF kind of reporting is that?
The judge ruled that the prison was violating Lindh’s and other Muslim inmates’ religious freedom by banning them from engaging in daily ritual prayer.
Is the prison violating Lindh and other Muslims religious freedom by banning violent jihad as well? How about funding terrorist groups (aka zakat)? Keeping slaves? Marrying underage girls? Having four wives? These are all freedoms permitted in Islam.
Lindh is serving a 20-year sentence for aiding the Taliban during the 2001 U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan.
He sued the government after he was barred from praying with other inmates, which he said violated his religious rights. Prison officials had argued that it would be dangerous, unaffordable and unfair to other inmates.
What might a convicted Muslim terrorist who clearly has chosen to double-down on his Islamic beliefs want to pray with other Muslims about? What else will they be discussing, planning, plotting?
More to come.
