Nothing but educated old men

Reader comment on item: Terrorist Profs

Submitted by British Citizen (United Kingdom), Feb 25, 2003 at 08:58

How can men who are reaching grandad status be targeted as terrorists? All these three men are is people who have an education, but because they are from the middle east their education is being used against them!

Don't people have the right to freedom of speech any more? Well, certainly not according to this case . So a person(s) can be arrested for "material supporters of a foreign terrorist organization". That means a person can be arrested for buying a book about terrorism, surely in a country such as the U.S the freedom of speech and self expression is allowed. In a country allows freedom of gender, social class and supposed liberty, these men haven't done anything wrong.

This just proves that discrimination is still going on! I'm only 16 years of age and it is clear to me!
