Lynne Stewart the Lovable Leftist and Her Cuddly Terrorist Cohorts

If you find depravity intriguing, and the works of the Marquis de Sade have begun to lose their zest, you might consider subscribing to the New York Times. The moral perversion required to produce their recent puff piece on hard-left, terrorist-assisting attorney Lynne Stewart makes the marquis look like an altar boy.

Lynne Stewart did more than represent Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, whom a federal jury convicted of conducting a conspiracy that included the lethal 1993 World Trade Center attack as well as a foiled plot to bomb the George Washington Bridge, the Lincoln and Holland tunnels, and the United Nations. She saw to it that incarceration need not interfere with his spiritual calling — that is, presiding over terrorist massacres.

Abdel-Rahman is "spiritual advisor" to the Islamic Group, a terrorist organization with ties to al-Qaeda and Egyptian Islamic Jihad that was implicated in the 1981 assassination of Anwar Sadat and took responsibility for the massacre of 58 tourists and four Egyptians in Luxor, Egypt in 1997. The body of one victim was slit open and a leaflet calling for the release of Abdel-Rahman was stuffed inside the torso.

After this event, the Islamic Group engaged in a ceasefire with the Egyptian government, which they have been striving to replace with a theocratic police state. But in violation of a signed agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice, Stewart passed along a press release from the sheikh, which gave his followers permission to end their ceasefire and resume terrorist activities.

As Stewart explained to CBS, "he told me he wanted this statement to get out to his people."

Stewart also deliberately distracted guards so that Abdel-Rahman could improperly dictate messages in Arabic to interpreter Mohammed Yousry, who presumably passed other terror-related orders along to those who would implement them.

It should be becoming clear why it is absolutely essential that terrorist masterminds like Abdel-Rahman be executed. If these guys don't mind living in caves, they aren't going to object to getting their three square on the taxpayer's tab in a relatively comfy prison — not when helpful public servants like Stewart allow them to coordinate their operations from behind bars.

According to Frontpage Magazine, Stewart was recruited to the case by another anti-American jihadist of the Left, Ramsey Clark. Frontpage quotes her as telling the New York Times in 1995 that she believes in "violence directed at the institutions which perpetuate capitalism."

That could be what won the Gray Lady's heart. The Times' recent piece on her doesn't have much to say about the innocents who died in the World Trade Center bombing, or the tourists butchered in Luxor. It doesn't offer any conjectures on how many others will be killed thanks to orders that Stewart helped to pass along. But it does describe in nauseating detail how much she is loved by her "array of wayward and dispossessed — but fiercely loyal — clients."

"She's not just your lawyer," one hoodlum is quoted as gushing. "She's your therapist, your mother, practically."

Stewart is made out to be a sort of atheist's angel, whose downtrodden clients, victims of capitalist oppression, "pay little, if at all." Perhaps she maintains her portly figure through freeganism as she assists her lowlife clients not for material gain, but for pure love of poking society in the eye.

When a jailed Islamofascist dreams up a clever way to kill our children in their beds, she or someone like her will pass along the plan.

The Left and Islamic terrorism — The match made in hell.

Might be worth mentioning that the father of the slaughtered Copt family in Jersey City, New Jersey was the cousin of one of the translators working for the FBI on the Lynne Stewart case. Aso, Abdel-Rahman's "assistant cleric" is still associated with a Jersey City mosque.
