A Terror Trial in Tampa

The trial in U.S. District Court of Sami al-Arian, a former college professor accused of coordinating the terrorist activities of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, is likely to last several months. Particularly chilling are the intercepts of telephone calls – many of them included in the indictment of al-Arian and his codefendants – that were apparently picked up by American and Israeli intelligence. In these, al-Arian, usually in Tampa, is heard brooding over Iran’s insufficient generosity in financing the PIJ and asking for money to help the families of the Beit Lid suicide bombers.
