Who Is Sami Al-Arian?

The University of South Florida professor was arrested this morning for conspiring with terrorists. No surprise here.

Editor's Note: Earlier today Sami Al-Arian was arrested for supporting the terrorist group Islamic Jihad (you can read the news account here).

Mr. Al-Arian is a particular favorite of ours and over the last year or so David Tell has written a number of pieces about him which make for quite fascinating reading now:

In the October 8, 2001 issue's The Enemy Isn't Us, Tell reported on some of the awful things Al-Arian said about September 11.

In Slammin' Sami in the October 3, 2001 Daily Standard, Tell examined some of Al-Arian's strange friends.

And in The Life and Times of Sami Al-Arian in the March 15, 2002 Daily Standard, Tell dismantled Nicholas Kristof's now-hilarious defense of Al-Arian.
