South Florida Muslims Plead Not Guilty to Terrorism Charges
The Sun Sentinel has the scoop on two Oakland Park brothers, Pakistan natives, who are charged with plotting to carry out jihad mass murder, including the use of a weapon of mass destruction:
"Two Oakland Park brothers pleaded not guilty to terrorism conspiracy charges Friday morning at a brief hearing in federal court in Fort Lauderdale.
"Sheheryar Alam Qazi, 30, and Raees Alam Qazi, 20, both U.S. citizens born in Pakistan, were arrested last week. They are charged with conspiring to detonate a weapon of mass destruction on U.S. soil and plotting to provide material support to terrorists.
"Both men will remain locked up at the Broward County Main Jail without bond for now.
"The younger brother is scheduled for a bond hearing on Dec. 14 after his assistant federal public defender Daniel Ecarius asked for a one-week delay. The elder brother's defense attorney Ronald Chapman said he might seek a bond hearing at a later date, though it's unlikely either brother will be released before trial because the charges are so serious.
"If convicted, they face up to life in prison for the more serious count and 15 years for the charge of supporting terrorism."
