U.S. Prosecutors: Terrorist Wills Found in Florida Prof’s Computer

Investigators discovered the wills of three Palestinian suicide attackers on a computer in an office tied to former University of South Florida professor Sami Al-Arian, accused of supporting terrorists, according to testimony Thursday in his federal trial. Arian and three other men are charged with working in the U.S. to support the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a U.S. State Department-listed terrorist group. In November 1994, Hesham Hamd, a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, set off a bomb strapped around his chest near Israeli soldiers, killing three. Prosecutors say Sami Al-Arian wrote a fax later that day to Damascus where the Islamic Jihad is based: “Pride and glory overwhelmed us. May God bless your efforts and accept our martyrs.
