A Muslim cleric was convicted Monday of funneling thousands of dollars to support the Pakistani Taliban terror organization, which is blamed for suicide bombings and other attacks that have killed both Americans and Pakistanis.

The jury returned its verdict after the two-month trial of Hafiz Khan, the imam at a downtown Miami mosque. Khan, 77, was found guilty of all four charges: two conspiracy counts and two counts of providing material support to terrorists.

"Despite being an imam, or spiritual leader, Hafiz Khan was by no means a man of peace," said U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer, whose office prosecuted the case.

"Instead, he acted with others to support terrorists to further acts of murder, kidnapping and maiming," Ferrer said.

Each charge carries a maximum 15-year prison sentence. U.S. District Judge Robert Scola set sentencing for May 30.

My bet is Team Obama trades this guy back to Pakistan for a hostage to be named later.

Although Joe Biden told us the taliban isn't our enemy "per se"...

I read that Orlando is being flooded with burqa’s! Even at Sea World last summer - the Arab women had to wear full garb and walk around while everyone else had shorts on...what a backward and pathetic culture to so such to another human being because they were born a girl...no equality — and one wonders why clerics are constantly funding terrorism — they are afraid of losing control — thanks to the media - such is being enabled throughout the world...

“the Arab women had to wear full garb and walk around while everyone else had shorts on”

It IS pretty amazing that they watch their pedophile loving husbands walk around in shorts and tees being completely comfortable while they are completely covered and must be stifling.

I wonder if the Islamic mouthpiece (CAIR) has any comment on this matter & if CAIR was part of the defence team?

A cot and 3 hots of “culturally-sensitive meals”, 5 prayers a day, Koran POS handled w/ gloves, etc etc etc, for 15yrs at US Taxpayers’ expense. Total BS! A .45cal ACP - I’ll travel free of charge and “personally administer it” - would solve the murderous muzzie problem, with zero recidivism. Otherwise, he’ll be back on the bloody battlefield killing more Western Troops within 4-6mos. KILL HIM NOW!

Looks like he’ll be 92 before he gets released, if he lives that long...

What do you mean "despite," Wifredo? Haven't you figured out islam yet?

When you fear being beheaded — one finds that is a great motivator to wear the burqa!

It’s shameful — and these women are brained washed — if they aren’t - they need to runaway and hide with a Christian family...no women - means no children - means Islam dies out!

PC has become so ingrained in our society that we cannot even get Freepers to never refer to the hate cult of Is-Slime as a religion which it is not.

If we cannot even get the terms of debate correct the enemies within the country will continue to win because they control the terms.

If Is-Slime were to be correctly referred to as a hate cult, then it does not get 1st Amendment protection. These people are at war with us and want to kill us and for some reason some of us continue to call their pedophile worshiping death cult a religion. When GWB referred to these vermin as a religion of peace, I lost all respect for him and no longer attempted to defend any of his acts.
