Terror-linked Adverts in NYC

"In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing, and the only thing that will remain will be Islam." -Siraj Wahhaj

Those are the words of Silamic Imam Siraj Wahhaj from one of his sermons. Now, we know from our experience with the Rev Jeremiah Wright, that apparently what is said in sermons doesn't matter when confronted later...so perhaps this post is moot.

"... Allah board!

An Islamic group plans to blitz 1,000 subway cars with advertisements this September in a campaign being promoted by a Brooklyn imam whom federal officials have linked to a plot to blow up city landmarks.

The group says its mission is to explain the true nature of Islam to non-Muslims who believe the religion is bent on acts of violence - but Siraj Wahhaj, the inflammatory imam who appears in a promotional YouTube video for the project, has defended convicted bomb-plotters and called the FBI and CIA the "real terrorists."

US Attorney Mary Jo White even named Wahhaj one of 170 unindicted co-conspirators in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the thwarted plan to blow up a slew of buildings..." (source)

Here's another dilemma for the Libertarian-minded... Do terrorists get "free speech" here in the Land of the free? Should this Imam get to plaster his ideas throughout the subways of NYC?
