Terrorist's Attorney Mahir Sherif...Classic Terrorist Apologist

Terrorist Nuradin Abdi's attorney Mahir Sherif said that we Americans need to read Bin Laden's words to understand why Muslims are angry. Sherif is a classic terrorist apologist. And worse is him giving Bin Laden equal status with human beings. I say it's no wonder Americans are angry. Below is a partial transcript of the outrageous things this attorney believes. Then follow the link to read more of this terrorist apologist's anti-American rhetoric including blaming "Bible Belt" Christians and claiming that America is slaughtering Iraqis. Thanks to Dirk Thompson of 610WTVN, Columbus, Ohio, for posting the transcripts.

REPORTER: Yes, because there are other co-conspirators alleged as I said. So the evidence they would have presented could have been of interest to the American public. What specifically were you looking to see?

SHERIF: It could have. I think the American public, if anything .. (laugh) I keep coming back to this. The American should go read about the war in Afghanistan. Should go read , and really I mean this. I don’t support terrorism, and I don’t support the killing of civilians be it by Bin Ladin or by American bombs. Okay? They both slaughter! Now, with that said: The American public needs to go and say ‘why are they angry’. And really, if you read Bin Ladins words you can see why people are angry. They are angry because America is doing things they should not be doing! That’s why they’re angry! But we are not talking about that. We’re just talking about Islamic radicalism. Why can’t we talk about imperial radicalism that has been subjecting Muslims to hardship for the last 50 years? We need to start talking about that!

And he also said this:

REPORTER: Did he admit that on his trip to Ethiopia he was in search of a training camp?

SHERIF: Yes, yes. That was in search of a training camp. But remember, you guys have to remember this: When the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 1979 it is because we set what is called the ‘Soviet Trap’. You know, the ‘Afghan Trap’ for the Soviets to come in. We, the United States did that. Okay? So the Soviets came in. Then we encouraged the Muslim world to go and fight the Russians. We did this. Are we taking any responsibility for this? So in other words there is nothing wrong about going to training if you’re going to fight for Americans against Russians. But if you are going to go train to help your Muslim brothers, there’s something wrong.
