RIVERSIDE'S TERROR RALLY
By CHARLES E.F. MILLARD
October 18, 2006 -- In the uproar over Monday's outrageously soft sentence for terror-aiding lawyer Lynne Stewart, Riverside Church seems to be distancing itself from the despicable rally it hosted in her support Sunday.
Stewart was convicted by a jury of her peers. The uncontested facts were that she had smuggled messages from convicted terrorist Omar Abdel Rahman ("the blind sheik") to his followers in the Islamic world. Those messages directed his followers in the terror group Gama'a Islamiyya to end their cease-fire with the Egyptian government and begin killing Rahman's enemies.
Rahman, allegedly a mastermind in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, was convicted of conspiracy to blow up the Lincoln and Holland tunnels as well as the United Nations.
Why, in the name of God, would any church host a rally in support of a woman who admitted she had spread a message of hate and death?
Well, in her testimony at trial, Stewart said: "To rid ourselves of the entrenched, voracious type of capitalism that is in this country that perpetuates sexism and racism, I don't think that can come nonviolently." This seems to be what Riverside Church wishes to support.
The church's Web site announced its rally in the following way: "In a case that has echoes of . . . Sacco/Vanzetti and the Rosenbergs, attorney Lynne Stewart will be sentenced on Oct. 16."

David Horowitz quotes freeper Piasa in his book The Shadow Party.
Horowitz and co-writer Richard Poe (a freeper) searched the internet for information about Soros paying for Lynne Stewart's defense and couldn't find information anywhere.
Then they stumbled on Piasa's post on Free Republic; this is what they wrote in the book:
We typed "Lynne Stewart" and "Lynne Stewart Defense Committee" into the website's (Soro's web site) general and advanced search engines. Our searches produced no links to any Lynne Stewart listing in the Institute's grant database.
Only after much rambling around the internet did we finally locate a page on the FreeRepublic.com message board where an anonymous researcher using the screen name "piasa" just happened to have posted a direct web address to soros.org's grant listing for the Lynne Stewart Defense Committee. We found the link, but it took luck and persistence . Without "piasa", we might have failed. This experience ssuggests to us that, prior to Byron York's expose, potential donors wishing to avoid contribution to charities that fund terrorists might have found it difficult to learn about the Institute's involvement with Lynne Stewart.
Soros donated $20,000 - heard it on the O'Reilly Factor.
Goodness...this is an easy one.It's because most of the "communicants" of this "church" are,in fact,atheist leftists who,for some reason,aren't inclined to sleep in on Sunday mornings.
Maybe, just maybe, more people are totally fed-up with our celebration of treason in this country. I hope this is a swelling disenchantment enough to overcome the liberal tide of the MSM and lead to traitorous acts in higher places than the courts and its officers. Maybe members of congress might be more closely examined?
More like $20,000/day. It's the tip of the iceberg.
It's a good example of what Ann Coulter called the Church of Godless Liberalism. For Riverside (a basion of leftism) to call itself a church is akin to calling the Bible the Communist Manifesto.
Rahmann is not ALLEGEDLY the mastermind of the WTC bombing, he was CONVICTED of that attack in 93.
you need a shave there, tootsie
Seems we are blessed to have many Buckhead's and Piasa's on our amazing awesome wonderful bestest of all time, website.
Riverside Church has gone far to the left recently, like many mainstream Protestant churches. This doesn't surprise me at all.
The woman is not innocent. But the leftist crowd doesn't care about that.
Does anybody actually go there to pray or do they just go there for the pro terrorist rallies?
Good work, piasa! :-)
I had forgotten about those pardons. They should be brought up whenever the Democrats get huffy about accusations that Clinton was soft on terrorism.
Hope some other prisoner gives her a proper greeting.
Is Riverside one of those new mega-churches usually referred to as "worship centers" and mostly specializing in humanist solutions and a disdain for the cross of Christ and the gospel. Don't know; just asking. I'll click into their website and see for myself. . .
