Convicted Sudbury Terrorist Receives Award

Community Church of Boston honors Tarek Mehanna with the 36th annual Sacco & Vanzetti Social Justice Award.

Tarek Mehanna, the Sudbury native convicted of terrorist charges in 2011, was honored Sunday by the Community Church of Boston and received the Sacco & Vanzetti Social Justice Award.

According to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, Mehanna once taught at Alhuda Academy in Worcester.

The award is named for immigrants convicted of murder in 1920.

Remember folks: this guy wanted to hook up with al Qaeda in Yemen, and only got arrested because he wanted to shoot up the Natick Mall. This is what the Community Church of Boston calls "social justice". Totally off-topic, but do you think the Community Church of Boston ever asked Tarek his thoughts on gay marriage?

Rumor has it there are plans at LS to paint a mural of him.
