Hey, if they can convict Lynne Stewart using Osama, why not keep the streak alive....Another Sheik on trial, another evidentiary travesty. In the financing cases, A judge allowed the jury hear a passenger's first-person account yesterday of a bus bombing in Tel Aviv.
The prosecutors do not argue that the sheik, Mohammed Ali Hassan al-Moayad, had any role in the bombing, in which six people were killed. But they say he laughed and applauded when he heard about it. They have argued that information about the bombing, and the sheik's reaction to it, helped show that he wanted to support terrorism.
