Holy Land Foundation Guilty on 3 Dozen Counts

From the Dallas Morning News Monday:

A jury on Monday determined that the Holy Land Foundation and five men who worked with the Muslim charity were guilty of three dozen counts related to the illegal funneling of at least $12 million to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

The unanimous verdicts are a complete victory for the government, which streamlined its case after a mistrial last year, and worked hard to carefully educate jurors on the complex evidence presented in the massive case. Guilty verdicts were read on 108 separate charges.

The prosecution victory is also a major one for the administration of President George Bush, whose efforts at fighting terrorism financing in court have been troubled, even though the flow of funds seems to be effectively shut down. . . .

Douglas Farah, a former Washington Post foreign correspondent who is now an author and terrorism consultant, said that the “trial provides an invaluable forum for publicly showing the true agenda of the international Muslim Brotherhood and its organizations in the United States — the abolition of the United States government as we know it and support for a designated terrorist organization.”

“Given this complete victory for the government … it is now incumbent on U.S. government agencies to stop dealing with them as if they were engaging in benign efforts to push an agenda of tolerance and civil rights.”

Yes, it is a victory for our team. The U.S. Govt. mishandled, fumbled, and dropped the ball so many times on this play.
Rita Katz deserves praise and acknowledgment for her tenacious investigation and research. Without her there would have been no case and no victory.
Read "Terrorist Hunter", her fascinating memoir detailing how she infiltrated these terrorist groups and collected vital evidence the government required to prosecute this case.

All over the U.S. thousands of Muslims are shocked and saddened to learn this organization was funding terrorism.

Loud Speakers at all the mosques have changed the call to prayer, to a call for PEACE.

Imams and Sheiks make a pledge to cooperate with U.S. government and end terror and jihad. They encourage their worshipers to do the same.


I predict their response will be to launch another flying Imam lawsuit or throw some Muslim woman under a bus and then claim it was a hate crime.
