Laila Yaghi

Laila is US political prisoner Ziyad Yaghi's mother. We met in Chicago and discussed Ziyad firsthand.

Like many other persecuted US Muslims, he was wrongfully charged, convicted and imprisoned despite having committed no crimes.

Nonetheless, he's serving 30 years in prison during the prime of his life. Laila does all she can to help him. She maintains the Free Zihad Yaghi site. Visit it for regular updates.

Discussion will focus on this great injustice. It's the wrong time to be Muslim in America. Many others suffer like Ziyad.
