FLORIDA PROFESSOR AND MOSQUE LEADER PLEADS GUILTY TO TALLAHASSEE ATTACKS

ANTI-HATE GROUP, WHOSE CHAIRMAN WAS VICTIM OF ATTACKER, SAYS BASSEM ALHALABI UNFIT TO TEACH FAU’S STUDENTS

(Tallahassee, FL) In a plea agreement filed earlier this week, Bassem Abdo Alhalabi, an associate professor at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and a director for the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR), admitted guilt to two separate attacks taking place in Tallahassee, Florida on March 11, 2010 (See ‘Assault on Muslim Capitol Day’).

Alhalabi, a former research assistant for Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist Sami al-Arian, had been charged with one count of battery on Americans Against Hate Chairman Joe Kaufman and one count of assault on cameraman J. Mark Campbell. The attacks took place approximately one hour from each other.

The first attack was on Kaufman, after he was coming out of a meeting with the Florida Attorney General’s office, in the Rotunda (lobby) of the State Capitol Building.

At the time of the attacks, Alhalabi was participating in an event sponsored by United Voices for America (UVA), a political lobby group of CAIR-Florida, headed by former Executive Director of CAIR-Tampa Ahmed Bedier.

A warrant was issued for Alhalabi’s arrest on March 19th. He was taken into custody on March 22nd and released from prison on March 23rd.

According to the plea agreement, which was secured by Leon County Assistant State Attorney Tiffany Cruz, Alhalabi will have to perform community service and take an anger management course.

This was not the first time Alhalabi became in trouble with the law. In June 2003, the U.S. Department of Commerce found Alhalabi guilty of illegally shipping a $13,000 military-grade thermal imaging device to Syria, a state sponsor of terrorism.

Joe Kaufman stated, “With everything that Bassem Alhalabi has been involved in – from his association with terrorists to his illegal exporting activities and now to his physically violent confrontations – it is high time that FAU part ways with this radical. Alhalabi is a danger to others and should not be trusted around any university’s students.”

Americans Against Hate (AAH) urges all those concerned to immediately contact Florida Atlantic University (FAU). Click here for contact details.

  1. He has plead guilty, but he will not show remorse, nor will he change his views on things.

    Again and again, Muslims who terrorize others in the name of Islam plead guilty to things that are crimes in the west, but they have no remorse. And while in prison, for those who get put there, they will practice dawa and convert convicts who would be more than willing to create a bit of chaos for Islam.

    They are laughing at us while in prison and converting others to jihad.

    Its not rocket science to see this happening all over the US and in Europe.

    So why do we insist on bringing these men to justice when they feel that they have done nothing wrong?

    We are not thinking things through properly. We should be deporting these criminals, not using our standards of justice on them since they do not share the same standards with us.
