"American administration's arrogance and stubbornness towards one of the Muslim world's scholars is putting the lives of Americans at risk"
And now we are supposed to believe that millions and millions of Muslims from Tunisia to Libya to Algeria to Egypt to Dearborn ………
Sheikh Rahman's jihad was bring down the towers in 1993, in order to slaughter tens of thousands of Americans. There are whispers that Obama is negotiating behind the scenes with the Muslim Brotherhood to "transfer" (release) the Blind Sheikh to Egypt (like Scotland's release of the Lockerbie bomber to Libya, where he was summarily released).
I can promise you that if Obama dares defile the memory of those lost in the 1993 WTC bombing and betrays this country to the Muslim Brotherhood, there will be hundreds of thousands marching to Washington. You. have. my. word.

Abdullah, the son of the blind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, writes to
request the US release his father, who has been serving a life sentence
for allegedly planning the 1993 World Trade Centre attack in New York.
In the press statement released in Arabic on Saturday, Abdullah says:
"The American administration's arrogance and stubbornness towards one of
the Muslim world's scholars, Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, is putting the
lives of its people at risk and costing them a lot."
Abdullah goes on to justify violent attacks and the kidnapping of
Americans by Islamist militants, such as Al-Qaeda, explaining that it is
the US administration's treatment of his father that "has pushed the
Muslim youth to anger for the cleric."
The murder of US ambassador Christopher Stevens to Libya in September
during an attack by unknown armed men on the consulate in the city of
Benghazi is one example Abdullah cites.
The attack on the US consulate in Libya took place on 11 September 2012
in the wake of massive, world-wide protests organised by Islamists to
denounce a US-made film mocking the Prophet Mohamed.
Abdullah warns in his statement that although his family has chosen to
protest peacefully others have seen that "the arrogance of the US is not
to be dealt with in any other way except through violence and the
killing of Americans."
The Sheikh's family, he claims, had demonstrated peacefully and held sit-ins at the US embassy in Cairo for almost 16 months.
"We had already warned the US from the anger of the Muslim world," reads his statement.
"We hope that the US understands the Muslim world's psyche, especially towards its Islamic scholars."
"We further hope that the US responds to President Mohamed Morsi's
request to release Omar Abdel-Rahman during his coming trip to the US,"
Morsi, who is expected to visit the US before the end of March, vowed
during his presidential campaign to pressure for the release of Sheikh
During his campaign Morsi called Abdel Rahman's case a "responsibility
on his shoulders" and that he would lobby for his release.
On 8 January, Morsi again repeated his promise during a recent
interview with CNN where he stated that he planned to raise the issue of
the jailed Sheikh with his American counterpart during his coming visit
to the US.
Abdel Rahman is considered the spiritual leader of the radical Gama'a Al-Islamiya group.
