Is He Just An Innocent Guy Or Just Trying To Make A Political Statement?

Activist Raed Jarrar was stopped and questioned at an airport for wearing a t-shirt which read “We Will Not Be Silent”.  He had to be pulled aside and was asked to take the shirt off, but refused.  Airport authorities forced him to either turn his shirt inside out or put another one over it.  The news reporter who talked to Democracy Now Amy Goodman about the incident asked her if Jarrar was “just an innocent guy or just trying to make a political statement that day”.  It is becoming more clear each day that our rights to express our views, and ourselves are diminishing.
