"Upon hearing this news, it initially all rushed back to me at once, nostalgia on overdrive. I saw the relentless accusations by pro-Israeli lobby groups, the pressure by pro-Israeli politicians and the defamatory news reports in the 1990's." 

"I saw the raid on the HLF in 2001, the pre-sunrise arrests and 'material support' charges in 2004, the first trial and hung jury in 2007, the second trial and guilty verdicts in 2008, the sentencing in 2009." 

"I saw the plethora of prison phone calls and visitations. And finally, I saw my father being transferred in 2010 to the Southern Illinois city of Marion's Communications Management Unit (CMU)".Gitmo in the Heartland.' "

"Meanwhile, my father waits in prison. (HLF) is still alive. (He) will not be forgotten. My father is my pillar, whose high spirits transcend all barbed-wire-topped fences, whose time in prison did not stifle his passion for human rights." 

"In fact, when I asked him about the first thing he'll do when he's released, (he) said, 'I will walk all the way (home) carrying a sign that says, 'End the Israeli Occupation of Palestine.' "

At stake is whether the Supreme Court will give him a chance. Most important is whether it'll reverse one of America's worst injustices. Five innocent men deserve praise, not prison. It's high time they got it.
