The jihadis among us...`businessman' arrested in New York for relaying Hezbollah TV

Javed Iqbal, 42, was arrested Wednesday on conspiracy charges for relaying broadcasts of al Manar, AKA Hezbollah TV to `customers' in the Greater New York City area, according to a statement by U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia.

Garcia said Iqbal used satellite dishes at his Staten Island home to distribute the broadcasts through a Brooklyn company called HDTV Limited.

All well and good..Hezbollah is considered a terrorist organization in the USA and relying their broadcasts illegally is a crime.

But what I want to know is who was receiving those broadcasts..Iqbal doubtless had lists of his subscribers. And they need to be outed and placed under surveillance, or deported if the law allows.

I guarantee you you won't see the MSM covering this one.

after considering this comment by ff, it is my opinion that this action warranted an illegal operation.
i.e., with the knowledge and permission of a federal judge, his apt. should have been searched without his knowledge, or if the feds have some method of looking through walls, to get the list ff spoke of.
place them under observation, and see where the trail leads.
would this be illegal?
would this violate his civil rights?
or we could just chop his head off and post the video on you-tube.

It might get MSM coverage when the ACLU files suit to protect his client lists and his tright to free speech. After all, since they maintain that there is no terrorist threat, we can't have people actually finding one.
