Illusion of Justice
Human Rights Abuses in US Terrorism Prosecutions

I concluded that the US government can punish you for trying to help people in Gaza and The West Bank. Draw your own conclusions.

Taken From The New Yorker  Magazine :Terror Prosecutions and Muslim-Americans

Five former employees and board members of what was once the largest Muslim charity in the United States, the Holy Land Foundation, are currently serving sentences of up to sixty-five years in prison—longer than many sentences for murder—for providing “material support” to Hamas. The prosecution offered no evidence that the charity ever supported any violence, let alone terrorist violence. It did not even claim that the charity provided direct material support to Hamas. Instead, the government argued that funds distributed to charities in the West Bank and used for peaceful, charitable purposes amounted to aiding Hamas because these charities were fronts for Hamas—even though the government had never designated them as such and had itself provided aid to some.

Fucked Up, “Queen Of Hearts”

If I were making a list, and I’m not, OK maybe I am just a little bit, Fucked Up’s David Comes To Life would be in my top 10 best albums of the year. I love this record so much, it’s a fantastic thing. You also need to see the strange, oddly-wistful, oddly-beautiful and disturbing video, partly because the song doesn’t really make an appearance at all. Go see and make sure you stay until the end.

you guys didn’t tell me there was videos for this album.
