Why are the Occupiers in Boston Supporting a Terror Suspect?

Maybe they really are an occupying army, complete with allegiance to a foreign power:

The Tarek Mehanna Support Committee came to Occupy Boston’s ever-evolving tent city on the Rose Kennedy Greenway to say Mehanna, a Muslim American pharmacist, is a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment.

The U.S. government says Mehanna, 28, provided “material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization,” and acted as a “media wing” for al-Qaeda.

Occupy Boston hosted the pro-Mehanna rally, but, officially, the leaderless group doesn’t have a position on the case.

“No position,” but they’ll support him publicly. That’s taking a position. But okay, it’s worth taking them at their word. Let’s have someone approach the occu-pooers with a pro-life rally message and see how far things get.
