No ruling should be made on a bid to revoke the citizenship of a Palestinian-American acquitted of an aiding-terrorism charge - but convicted of obtaining his citizenship fraudulently - until appeals of his convictions are disposed of, his lawyers say. In a federal court filing Friday, lawyers for Arwah Jaber argued that, at a minimum, nothing should be done until after Jaber's sentencing hearing, not expected until some time in September. Jaber, who obtained a doctoral degree in chemistry from the university while he awaited trial, was acquitted June 20 of attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization. He was arrested at the Northwest Regional Airport on June 14, 2005, as he prepared to leave on a trip to the Middle East, and prosecutors said he planned to join the Islamic Jihad, labeled by US authorities as a terrorist organization.
