As usual, Rod Dreher’s assumptions and accusations are wrong. This case had nothing to do with the Muslim Brotherhood nor was it about any organization attempting to take over the country, as Mr. Dreher wants us to believe. He accuses Muslim organizations of being “well funded” by the Brotherhood, which is untrue.
After two months of witnessing the trial, the jury focused on facts rather than emotions.
The verdict that they sealed on their last day of deliberations showed that they did not feel that the government’s case against the Holy Land Foundation defendants was solid.
The jurors did seek truth through careful examination of the evidence, and Mr. Dreher needs to study the real evidence before spewing his hate to the public.
