A short message from the mother of Ziyad Yaghi:

It is always the poor and the disadvantaged who get thrown in jail! My son was looking for colleges and trying to get into a college when for no reason got thrown in jail! After he was in jail, I received all these phone calls from colleges that he had called and was waiting for a response! Every minute of the day I think of you my son and how they took you and now you are in jail for doing nothing wrong but just because you were a good person who minded his own business and was trying to better himself! Every minute of the day I hurt for you my son and realize that yes it is a world aimed to do injustice on innocent people, aimed to get money; an industrial prison (where people of money rule) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prison-industrial_complex A young man, who had his whole life ahead of him, is thrown in jail because 3 years ago he took an innocent trip overseas! If any ordinary American non-Muslim took this trip, it would have been gone unnoticed, but because my son took it, it became a crime! How is one supposed to visit his grandmother, uncles and aunts? How is someone supposed to learn Arabic and learn more about his heritage and culture if he does not visit his ancestor’s land!? Sign the petition and paste it onto your wall. If you know any pro-bono lawyers let me know. Educate your friends and family about what is going on to Muslim families in this world. DON’T STAY SILENT, SILENCE MEANS THAT YOU AGREE TO THE INJUSTICES THAT ARE BEING DONE ONTO INNOCENT PEOPLE. Read SILENT NO MORE by Paul Findley who was a member of congress for 22 years; Findley explains why these things are happening to Muslim people and how to stop it.

Glaciers have melted from too many tears
The sea that pretends it calmness
Deceives us when we get near
The pond in the backyard is color clear

The clouds have tossed from time to time
Uncomfortable with what is going on

Afar in the horizon the tears of mothers have gone
Blended with the soil to pass through the flowers as dew

The doves that used to gather at the center of town
Deserted us and flew
The eagle that used to soar perpendicularly with the sun rays at noon
Is ashamed to return

The wind that’s been carrying the wailing of the dead souls
Has reached its peak whistling and beating at every door
To awaken the dead conscious of the many

The ghosts, the unseen spirits, the jinn
Are outraged by the injustices of the US

And you Obama have not lifted a hand
From all the injustices that is going on in your land
The people have been oppressed under your rule
Their mother’s hearts have been ripped and undressed
The scene is surreal
Their voices are echoed beyond the hills
Their screams at night have caused the church bills
To quiver
And the lakes, the ponds and the rivers
To shiver

And yet Obama you have not lifted a hand

Does our soul come from a different creator?
A different species when we bleed we don’t feel?
Are our tears made from a different substance?
Or are our tears the same tears as human tears

Obama we have pleaded for you to stop the oppressors
To stop the shredding of mother’s hearts with scissors

Too many games are being played under your rule
Do not turn your head… take the time to listen
To the whispers of the oppressed

Sedentary one’s heart has become
From the burden and blows of life

Life could just be a dream of the dead

Reincarnated faces walk with all their might
Hitler, Stalin coming back to life
In the form of …the FBI
New faces come to replace the old

With the same….substance

Important Information

Via Friends of Human Rights: Support Ziyad Yaghi. He lost his appeal, and will continue serving an outrageous 31-year sentence for a crime the government thought he might commit sometime in the future! The charge was conspiracy to provide material support to terrorism and to maim and murder people overseas. Who, where and when were not specified. The evidence, which basically was speech, showed he was not involved in any conspiracy. And in turning down the appeal, the judge apparently felt that the First Amendment does not apply to Ziyad. Also, the judge saw nothing outrageous with a 31-year sentence for a crime that hasn't happened. If you want to show the prison that you support Ziyad, and let Ziyad know that he is not forgotten, you can write to him at this address: Ziyad Yaghi (51771-056) USP Coleman 2 P.O. Box 1034 Coleman, FL 33521
