No Tears for Lynne Stewart

The jihadists’ favorite American lawyer, Lynne Stewart, reportedly has stage-4 breast cancer. Her radical friends — ranging from the “Party for Socialism and Liberation” and “Workers World” to Pete Seeger, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal — want her freed from jail. There’s only one decent response to the Lynne Stewart Fan Club’s criminal-coddling demand:

No, hell, no.

The way the bleeding hearts tell it, this harmless grandma got thrown in the slammer by Big Bad Bush merely because she was “distributing press releases on behalf of her jailed client, Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman.” Oh, the outrageous inhumanity! How could America the Cruel do this to an innocent little old lady serving the cause of “social justice”? How can they just let her suffer and perish behind bars? All she did was “distribute press releases.”

1960s leftover agitator Dick Gregory is now on a hunger strike until the feds order the “compassionate release” of the left’s sweetheart “political prisoner” and she “receives medical treatment in the care of her family and with physicians of her choice.” He and Stewart’s apologists claim she was prosecuted “to intimidate the entire legal community so that few would dare to defend political clients whom the state demonizes and none would provide a vigorous defense.”

Spare me the proglodyte pathos. Allow me to smash the world’s smallest violin to bits. Stewart is no martyr, no heroine. She’s a menace to peace-loving society who illegally conspired with killers. And there’s a very good reason why her client was demonized. He is a demon.

Refresher course for the clueless: Stewart was convicted in 2005 of helping terrorist Rahman — the bloodstained Blind Sheik — smuggle coded messages of Islamic violence to outside followers in violation of an explicit pledge to abide by her client’s court-ordered isolation.

Rahman, Stewart’s “political client,” had called on Muslims to “destroy” the West, “burn their companies, eliminate their interests, sink their ships, shoot down their planes, kill them on the sea, air or land.” He issued bloody fatwas against U.S.

“infidels” that inspired the 1993 WTC bombing, the 1997 massacre of Western tourists in Luxor, Egypt, and the 9/11 attacks.

Defying a judge’s communications ban, Stewart ferreted messages to the Blind Sheik from fellow jihadist Rifa’l Ahman Tara urging him to support a new wave of Islamic violence in Egypt — and then smuggled out a coded order to his followers lifting a ceasefire between his terrorist group and the Egyptian government. Stewart personally delivered one of the messages to a Reuters reporter.

The Middle East Quarterly also described how Stewart created “covering noises” for the Blind Sheik’s translator to evade the communications ban: “On some surveillance videos, Stewart could be seen shaking a water jar or tapping on the table while (the translator) and the sheikh exchanged communications that were then later disseminated to the sheikh’s followers…”

After receiving a paltry initial sentence of 28 months for abetting terrorism, the disbarred civil rights attorney was re-sentenced to 10 years in the slammer. A federal panel of judges excoriated her for her sickening arrogance. “From the moment she committed the first act for which she was convicted, through her trial, sentencing and appeals,” Judge Robert Sack of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals wrote, “Stewart has persisted in exhibiting what seems to be a stark inability to understand the seriousness of her crimes.”

Stewart failed to understand “the breadth and depth of the danger in which” her crimes had “placed the lives and safety of unknown innocents, and the extent to which they constituted an abuse of her trust and privilege as a member of the bar,” the panel found.

This case remains a shining example of just how dangerous it is for America to give foreign-born jihadists the full panoply of American constitutional rights and all the attendant benefits of a civilian trial. Stewart’s treacherous collaboration with the Blind Sheik endangered — and cost — innocent lives.

Stewart remains unrepentant. She called 9/11 an “armed struggle.” Upon her initial sentencing, she boasted that she could serve the term “standing on her head.” After she was convicted of aiding and abetting Rahman, she told an interviewer she “would do it again.”

Now she wants mercy, medical comforts and freedom? No, hell, no. This messenger gal for murderous barbarians made her prison bed. Die in it.

    Michelle, I love you…but in a totally platonic way even though you have a high temperature.

  • AdinaK

    NOT only shouldn't there be any tears for Stewart, but there should be a celebration that she is meeting her end. Not only that, but the entire radical crew, from all spheres of Obama Inc and beyond, should meet a similar end –

    The damage they have accrued, to the entire foundation of America, is beyond most people's wildest imagination. But it is no less true.

    They are evil personified.

      No. No celebrating. Just make sure she STAYS in prison, and then ignore her. Period. She does not deserve ANY acknowledgement. (And we are not to celebrate the death of our enemies.)

  • F.K. Juliano

    Lynne Steward dying in prison of natural causes is about as much justice as anyone can expect in Obama's America, but in a society that retained its self-respect she would have been executed.

  • Lan Astaslem

    good riddance to a leftist pig

    • BS77

      another leftist "hero" pumping her fist….what a pile of garbage!!!

  • David M

    She is a traitor and deserved facing a firing squad. She is an enemy (like all other lefties) and she must die in prison with utmost pain up to the last second of her miserable life.


    Is she pulling another fraud like the Lockerbee bomber who got a heroes welcome in Libya and who lived years after his release?

    I would let her out but exiled to any Middle East country like Libya or Egypt where they know how to treat women, especially White ones.


      OOPS SORRY! They have a thing against PIGS in those countries. I bet she'd love Cuba. The weather is great at Guantanamo and then she'd be among her friends.

      See Michelle, show some compassion!


      We must Never Forget that the uk/scotland released the convicted bomber of Pan Am 103 –

      in a BLOOD for OIL CONTRACTS deal

      slap in the face of the families of the people who died in that bombing.

    Too bad it's not contagious.

  • goemon

    can someone tell me why far left women are so ugly? i mean, google it. other people see it too. is this a curse from God?

    • guest

      It's an ugliness that comes from within their rotten souls.

    • Boogies Daddy

      It's evident that it is the other way around. They have a need to be wanted (who doesn't?).

      Being used is the next best thing.

    • Hugo Skandrani

      Because they're angry at society. Conservative and Libertarian women, more often than not, are total babes: Sarah Palin, Anne Coulter, Michelle Rhee, just to name a few.

      • DebbieOhio912

        Hugo, you forgot Michelle Malkin.

  • Howard

    Dick Gregory should get very hungry indeed before this one goes free.


    dick gregory on a hunger strike. WGAS?

    The vile socialist and islamofascist-philic hag lynn stewart is going to the same place as hugo chavez and osama bin laden.


  • Jack Rescoe

    I'm not for wishing bad things on bad people, but I'll make an exception for Lynne Stewart. If her breast cancer is stage-4 now, I'll be hoping for "stage-5" with a s-l-o-w death.

  • Mary Sue

    She's a traitor, give her no quarter.

    By now I'm surprised she hasn't donned a Burka.

    • JacksonPearson

      "By now I'm surprised she hasn't donned a Burka."
      If she did put on a Burqa, it'd be to smuggle out more messages to the people that want us dead!

  • Drakken

    Someone get a rope !

      "Someone get a rope !"

  • RUI

    Woohoo! America **** YEAH! But alas, even prison is to bland for her. She deserves to be rend apart for what she did and so do all jihadis and their sympathizers and abettors.

    Stick a fork in it Lynn: you're done! Buh bye!
