The fourth and final day of the deportation trial of one of New Jersey's most prominent Muslim leaders, Mohammad Qatanani, brought emotional testimony from the man the government is seeking to send back to the Middle East.

During nearly three hours on the witness stand this morning, Qatani, the imam of the Islamic Center of Passaic County, recounted how he was tortured by Israeli interrogaters in 1993 when he was detained on a trip from Jordan back to Palestine to visit relatives. For some 30 days, said Qatanani, they verbally and physically abused him.

Imam Mohammad Qatanani waves to his supporters during the lunch break.

...

"I am sorry judge, it is a situation you cannot immagine. They say we put your kids in the street. We will kill your family."

Qatanani went on to describe hours of confinement, handcuffed in painful positions and with a putrid hood pulled down over his head.

...

"It is a kind of death, judge," said Qatanani. "You feel death is better than life. A human being in that place has no rights, he has nothing."

The government asserts that an Israeli military court convicted the imam for assisting Hamas, and that he was not truthful when he applied for permanent U.S. residence. During testimony today, Qatanani denied he was ever a member of Hamas, and that he ever made a confession to that effect to the Israelis.

Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Permanent residency requirements explcitly ask if you are or have been associatied with terror organizations. I don't think Israel would be policing for the USCIS though unless they have thier own dirt on this dude and Hamas ties.
