Civil Rights and Wrongs:
Targeting and Entrapment of Muslims and the State of Civil Liberties Today

Eight years ago, Yassin Aref, the Imam of the Masjid As-Salam Mosque, and Mohammed Hossain, owner of the Little Italy Pizza Shop, were arrested in an FBI sting operation. After national publicly for their arrest, trial, conviction and sentencing, many questions remain about the case. Many people in Albany, knowing the men are innocent, organized to support them and their families. Both men are currently serving their sentences in federal prisons.

Mr. Downs and Dr. Ahmad will provide an update on the case, and describe the state of civil liberties today, including the targeting of Muslims, environmentalists, peace activists and members of the Occupy movement with the same type of entrapment tactics. In addition, they will briefly describe their encounter with the “Albany Speech Police.” Dr. Ahmad’s book about the case “Rounded Up — Artificial Terrorists and Muslim Entrapment After 9//” will be available for purchase.
