"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

HDTV - Coming Soon, A Station Near You!

NEW YORK -- Authorities on Thursday announced the arrest of a man on charges that he conspired to violate federal laws by providing customers in the New York area with satellite broadcasts of a television station operated by Hezbollah.
xxx Javed Iqbal, 42 years old, of Staten Island, was arrested Wednesday on charges that he enabled the broadcasts of al Manar, which was designated by the U.S. government this spring as a global terrorist entity, according to a release from U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia.
xxx The charges were brought after federal agents executed search warrants at two storefronts in Brooklyn and at a Staten Island residence where several satellite dishes helped Mr. Iqbal distribute the broadcasts through a Brooklyn company called HDTV Limited, Mr. Garcia said.
xxx In court papers filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, investigator Charles Villani wrote that the probe began after a confidential source in February told law enforcement officers that Mr. Iqbal was selling al Manar broadcasts through a business in Brooklyn.
xxx He said he had reason to believe that the two locations searched by federal agents contained evidence that would prove violations of laws banning anyone from providing support to a foreign terrorist organization.
