      DENTIST SENTENCED OVER PLOT TO BOMB MIAMI MOSQUE
      Associated Press, 5/2/03

      TAMPA - A dentist who admitted he was an accomplice in a plot to bomb
      a Pinellas County Islamic center last year was sentenced Thursday to
      almost 3 1/2 years in prison.

      Michael Hardee, 50, pleaded guilty last fall to agreeing to drive
      friend Robert Goldstein to the Islamic Society of Pinellas County,
      where the Seminole podiatrist planned to plant homemade bombs and
      blow up buildings in retaliation for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist
      attacks...

      Federal sentencing guidelines call for more than five years, but
      prosecutors asked for Hardee to be given a break because his help was
      crucial in building cases against Goldstein and his estranged wife,
      Kristi Goldstein.

      Hardee pleaded guilty to conspiracy to blow up the buildings,
      conspiracy to violate civil rights, and illegal possession of a short-
      barreled rifle and silencer.

      Ahmed Bedier, spokesman for the Council for American-Islamic
      Relations who worships at the Pinellas County mosque, said the Muslim
      community was outraged at the light sentence and that Hardee and the
      Goldsteins weren't charged as terrorists.

      "The American Muslim community is losing faith in the justice
      system," he said...
