ACLU Defends Al-Manar Broadcaster
The FBI arrested Javed Iqbal, of Staten Island, for broadcasting Al-Manar TV from satellite dishes in his backyard. Al-Manar, run by Hezbollah, is on the State Department’s terror list.
The ACLU claims that prosecuting Iqbal is unconstitutional because the International Emergency Economic Powers Act makes an exception for news media. But earlier this year, the Washington Times argued that Al-Manar can't be considered a legitimate news service and is just culpable for terror as Hezbollah itself.
Who has a stronger argument?
