They. Never. Stop.
At CUNY, no less, where scholars like Robert Spencer and Ibn Warraq couldn’t get a gig taking out the trash.
This exhibit features the art of terrorists, including Fort Dix jihad massacre plotter Mohammad Shnewer and Tarek Mehanna, an al-qaeda terrorist who was convicted of trying to kill American soldiers. Other “artists” include Shahawar Matin Siraj, who plotted to bomb the Herald Square subway station in NYC for Islam, Shukri Abu Baker of the jihad charity, the Holy Land Foundation, Mohammad Hossain, who was caught laundering money in a jihadi arms deal, radical environmentalist Mary Mason, the notorious Marin County mujahid John Walker Lindh, Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader and former professor and liberal media darling Sami Al Arian, the would-be jihad killer of Muhammad cartoonists, Zachary Chesser, and Yassin Aref, Talha Ahsan and Babar Ahmad, imprisoned for supporting terrorists.
Terror garbage mosquerading as art.
Art of Protest: Creative Stands Against Political Imprisonment exhibit opens tonight
Please help get the word out about this important new exhibit – organized by the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms; CUNY Law School’s CLEAR Project (Creating Law Enforcement Accountability and Responsibility); CUNY Law Student for the Arts; and the Muslim Law Students Association – which opens tonight and will be up for at least 2 weeks (hopefully the show will be extended).
Art of Protest: Creative Stands Against Political Imprisonment
More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1413791718907303/
For the first time ever, post-9/11 Muslim prisoners’ artwork will be displayed, read, recited, and spoken aloud to the public.
The National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms (NCPCF) in collaboration with CUNY-CLEAR; CUNY- CUNY-Law Students for Arts (LSfA); and the Muslim Law Students Association (MLSA) invites you to join us on the opening night of Arts and Poetry From the Window of Prisons.
Families and friends of prisoners, former prisoners, advocates, and community members, who have been resisting human rights violations since 9/11, will gather to speak on the opening night of the exhibition, August 7.
We invite you to join us in the discussion of how basic rights have eroded after 9/11. It’s an erosion that shows itself in War on Terror policies and practices – in our communities, courtrooms and prisons across the U.S. Through the exhibition, we hope to raise awareness about the prisoners and their conditions, to view the interconnectedness of their cases, political eras, and their lives.
Art reveals the person behind bars, it encourages the public to take a second look and raise awareness about the plight of political prisoners in the US. We will be joined collectively in the struggle for social justice, and this exhibition will create a space in which the voices and visions of the incarcerated political prisoners can be expressed.
The works include Muslim prisoners, imprisoned environmental, and animal rights activists. The artworks include a range of mediums, styles, and themes.
Arts and poetry from the following prisoners will be included:
Shahawar Matin Siraj
Shukri Abu Baker
John Walker Lindh
Sami Al Arian
Poetry will be recited by: Hamdan Azhar and Gareth Bryant
Speakers include families of prisoners, representatives of NCPCF, CUNY-CLEAR, and Muslim Justice Initiative (MJI)

The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
Please contribute to our ground-breaking work here.
