Yemeni sheikh sentenced to 75 years

A follow-up to our March 17, 2005 posting Yemeni Cleric, Aide Convicted in New York:

Terror Supporter Gets 75 Years

Sheikh Mohammed Ali Hassan al-Moayad was sentenced to 75 years in prison on Thursday for conspiring to support and fund al Qaeda and Hamas and fined $1.25 million in federal court in Brooklyn. Alhamdulillah.

Mohamed Alanssi, the man who set himself afire outside the White House last November, served as an FBI informant to lure al-Moayad to Germany. The CBS News article says that Alanssi said that the self-immolation was an effort to get more money from the FBI.
