British woman convicted for ‘terrorism’ for poetry

Samina MalikFrom The Guardian (UK) 11/12/07:

Samina Malik “went all Web 2.0 and posted poems – terrible, terrible poems – on various websites. That’s about the extent of her terrorist activity. But never fear. The judge and prosecutors went the extra mile to give her a notoriety that her very, very bad poetry and infantile fantasies about being a terrorist really don’t warrant.”
