Mike Gravel is a former two-term Democrat Senator from Alaska (and the hard Left) who lobbied unsuccessfully to be George McGovern's Veep choice in 1972. Sami al-Arian is a convicted abettor of the murderous terrorist organization Palestinian Islamic Jihad who has recently admitted past involvement in the Muslim Brotherhood (official motto: "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.")Michael Fletcher of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, has the audio of Gravel's remarks:
Al-Arian is about to stand trial for criminal contempt because he refuses to testify in the grand jury — despite the facts that all people in the United States are obliged to do so when subpoenaed unless absolved by a legal privilege; that al-Arian has no privilege against self-incrimination because the United States has immunized him from prosecution; and that it is a commonplace for defendants, once their trials are over, to be summoned to the grand jury to provide the public with other information they have regarding potential criminal activity.
Mike Gravel, a former two-term senator from Alaska and fringe Democratic and Libertarian presidential candidate, urged people to stalk a federal prosecutor and his family in order to get criminal contempt charges dropped against Sami Al-Arian, an exclusive audio tape obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism shows.This left me wondering how long it will be until the merger of violent, chauvinist Islam and the radical Left is complete.
Gravel, 78, spoke at a forum with Al-Arian's wife and two of their children Friday evening in Washington, D.C. During his remarks, he focused attention at the prosecutor driving the case (Click the play button to the left to hear the clip):
Gravel: "And so what I would say, if there is somebody within the sound of my
voice who has the time to do it, find out where - is it Gordon? Who's
the, what's his name?"
Audience member: "Gordon Kromberg."
Gravel: "Find out where he lives. Find out where his office is. If you've got some chutzpah - which is a word that you don't hear often - if you've really got it, find out where he lives, find out where his kids go to school, find out where his office is; picket him all the time. Call him a racist in signs if you see him. Call him an injustice. Call him whatever you want to call him, but in his face all the time. They can't take the heat; deliver it to them. We have to stop laying down to these injustices."
