Disbarred, convicted lawyer for terrorists to give “ethics” lecture at Hofstra

(CFP) Lynne STEWART, the disbarred lawyer convicted of aiding terrorists will be giving a lecture on legal ethics at an upcoming law school ethics conference at Hofstra University. STEWART, who was found guilty of conspiring with terrorist Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the Muslim terrorist convicted in 1996 of plots to bomb landmarks in and around New York City, is scheduled to give a lecture on October 16 at Hofstra Law School’s “Legal Ethics: Lawyering on the Edge” at the Hempsted, NY University.

After a nine-month trial and nearly 2 weeks of jury deliberations, Stewart was convicted on 10 February 2005 of providing material support to terrorists. For her role in facilitating illegal communications between imprisoned Islamic terrorist Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and the Egyptian Islamic Group Gamaat al Islamia, an Islamic terrorist group allied with al Qaeda, STEWART was sentenced to a mere 28 months in prison. She is currently free on bail pending appeal.

  1. If you are really sincere about wanting to know the truth and render it accurately, I encourage you to read the full text of Lynne Stewarts appeal motion. You can read it online or download it to read at your leisure at: http://www.LynneStewart.org

    I think it is very important for all to understand that during the time period during which the government’s case was concerned, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman was not only 100% blind (not just legally blind, but totally, completely blind) and in addition was suffering from severe diabetes which numbed his fingers so severely that it was impossible for him to read braile. In addition, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman was totally isolated and segregated from any human contact with anyone in the prison except prison officials. Usually a prisoner in solitary confinement can at least hear the sounds of other prisoners, but a special jail cell was build for Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman that had a soundproof room between the door to his cell and the door leading to the hallway of the prison unit. Not one prison official could speak Arabic, which made the mental/intellectual isolation of the shiek total except for the visits from his lawyers which occurred every few months.

    Furthermore, Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman during the time period covered in the charges was deteriorating mentally so much that he was experiencing auditory hallucinations and confused thought.

    The single message which Lynne Stewart read over the phone to a Reuters reporter simply said that the shiek felt he was no longer able to give advice any longer and that his opinions should no longer be taken into account. Incredibly, the government argued that Lynne’s passing a message in which the sheik told his followers not to pay attention to him any more was providing aid to terrorists.

    There is so much true evil in this world that it really is not necessary to demonize Lynne Stewart. Those who have known Lynne Stewart and know about her 30 years of dedicated, self-less work, most of it for free, helping the poor and the disenfranchised are hopeful that Lynne’s appeal will be granted so that she can once resume her distinguished legal career.
