Reader comment on item: Maher Hawash: The Terrorist Next Door

Submitted by Mordecai Finley (United States), Aug 12, 2003 at 17:07

Thanks for indicating an obvious truth: those who protested the arrest of Hawash were interested in defaming the US government more than protecting the truth. You point that they said they were motivated by defending a man whom they knew to be innocent; once he confessed, if the protection of truth was their motivation, they would have apologized. What was their true motivation, then? To encourage distrust in our government, especially its fight against radical Islam and its terrorist war against the United States.

Your writing is a much needed balance to a media that has generally lost its moral bearings.
