NY: GOVERNMENT’S HANDLING OF MUSLIMS PROTESTED
A handful of protesters stood outside the federal building Monday afternoon to highlight the no-contest resolution for U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales before the Senate and the Justice Department’s actions against Muslims in general.
Eight people held signs accusing local U.S. Attorney Glenn Suddaby of politicizing the Justice Department.
Madis Senner, a protester, said the arrest and conviction of Dr. Rafil Dhafir, who founded a charity to aid Iraqi children, was unreasonable.
Senner said he hopes the attention on Gonzales will make lawmakers take a closer look at the types of cases being prosecuted.
