    who was actively involved in the bombing. If you followed this kind of logic, you would have to ask why SS officers were sentenced to prison when they were only acting at the behest of Hitler. The man in question was found guilty of a crime. The fact that he was ordered to commit the crime by the Libyan dictator does not absolve him.

    Sometimes, I have to wonder at the thinking that goes on here. The canard that no muslim can ever get a fair trial in a western court is just wrong. In fact, the west is practically the only place where a muslim CAN get a fair trial.

      That is not my judgment. That is the judgment of the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission. You are going to tell them they are wrong? They spent over a million pounds on the investigation. You have a rebuttal to their 800 page report calling for a new trial or are you just blowing smoke?

        get a fair trial, how do we end up with a painstaking, expensive legal review? I am not saying anyone was wrong or right. But if you are saying that a muslim couldn't get a fair tria,l that is, by your own words, patently false.

          I know it's very satisfying to built straw men and then burn them down. Don't.

          I said

          This muslim didn't get a fair trial in Scotland!

          I said a very specific trial was found by the SCCRC not to be fair. I didn't even say that was my opinion. I said that was their opinion.

          So where do you have me "saying that a muslim couldn't get a fair tria,l"?

          You think you can tarnspose my 'didn't' into a universal 'couldn't' and I'm suppose to say 'okay'?

      A Catholic, Jew, Muslim and Buddhist walk into Al Aqsa Mosque. Buddhist immediately exclaims: "excuse me I appear to be in the wrong joke."
