Ayyub Abdul-Alim is a Hero!!. The sacrifice he made for the safety and security of the Muslims against the indecent spy and entrapment tactics law enforcement were trying to recruit for will not be in vain. Siham Nafai betrayed her fellow Muslim brothers and sisters for money and citizenship & she enjoys her freedom in this country to continue her indecent work for pay. Ayyub…
Jury posed a question to the court asking for a better definition of reasonable doubt before resuming deliberations.

Throughout the trial the Prosecution has done their best to ensure that mention of FBI involvement is kept to the bare minimum, going as far as to exclude witnesses.
In his own defense on Friday afternoon Ayyub testified that several people were aware of the FBI harassment. When he first received a call offering him the chance to become an informant, he immediately went to his State Representative Ben Swan to file a complaint. Friday afternoon Representative Swan was inside the courthouse waiting to testify as a witness but on the grounds that it could be hearsay for the Representative to testify because there was no way to verify his statement, the prosecution objected to his presence in the courtroom. The judge ruled in favor of the objection, and the Jury never got the chance to hear his testimony.
It’s an interesting note because this testimony would have confirmed Ayyub’s Friday testimony (and previous testimonies) that the FBI contacted him several months before his arrest and he filed complaints about their harassment. This information would be crucial to a jury deciding whether or not this arrest was entrapment. One has to wonder what reason the court has for not allowing influential leaders to speak for the defense. One also has to wonder just who is seeing justice if testimonies are not allowed from elected State Officials.
