A short message from the mother of Ziyad Yaghi:

It is always the poor and the disadvantaged who get thrown in jail! My son was looking for colleges and trying to get into a college when for no reason got thrown in jail! After he was in jail, I received all these phone calls from colleges that he had called and was waiting for a response! Every minute of the day I think of you my son and how they took you and now you are in jail for doing nothing wrong but just because you were a good person who minded his own business and was trying to better himself! Every minute of the day I hurt for you my son and realize that yes it is a world aimed to do injustice on innocent people, aimed to get money; an industrial prison (where people of money rule) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prison-industrial_complex A young man, who had his whole life ahead of him, is thrown in jail because 3 years ago he took an innocent trip overseas! If any ordinary American non-Muslim took this trip, it would have been gone unnoticed, but because my son took it, it became a crime! How is one supposed to visit his grandmother, uncles and aunts? How is someone supposed to learn Arabic and learn more about his heritage and culture if he does not visit his ancestor’s land!? Sign the petition and paste it onto your wall. If you know any pro-bono lawyers let me know. Educate your friends and family about what is going on to Muslim families in this world. DON’T STAY SILENT, SILENCE MEANS THAT YOU AGREE TO THE INJUSTICES THAT ARE BEING DONE ONTO INNOCENT PEOPLE. Read SILENT NO MORE by Paul Findley who was a member of congress for 22 years; Findley explains why these things are happening to Muslim people and how to stop it.
