Staten Island Man Gets Prison for Broadcasting Terror Available Online
Back in December we told you Staten Island's Javed Iqbal was rousted by the feds for feeding transmissions from Al Manar, a Lebanon-based TV station backed by Hamas, into the free world. Today the U.S. Attorney's office announces Iqbal has been sentenced to 69 months for "providing material support to Hizballah." Of course, you can still get Al Manar's version of the news via its website -- and even watch streaming video of their programming -- but presumably you can't get the premium offerings available to Iqbal's subscribers.
