HLF’s Islamonazis funded terrorism against Jews
TT recently got mail from like minded Islamonazis or from their Leftist supporters: “The so-called state of israel is an aberration that desperately needs to be dismantled! Try coming to America to arrest me, a-holes. I’d enjoy ending your pathetic existence!!! “
They love to threaten don’t they? In any kind of rational and well monitored debate, Palestinians and their supporters (= Jew haters) would never stand a chance to convince anyone of their positions, that’s why they prefer to shout over the opposition with bogus one line slogans in conjunction with aggressive intimidation.
I’ve seen it up front and witnessed that when confronted with the facts of the truth….the’ll obfuscate the issue and try to draw attention elsewhere…they simply can’t stand the truth, because it undermines their well crafted propaganda. So it gives the TT a great sense of satisfaction that the HLF got it’s just deserts with these long prison sentences.
Another point worth mentioning, is the blue smoke and mirrors and the slight of hand involved in sharia financing, which poses the same like danger as the HLF once did. It allows for these so called “banking institutions” to funnel money to a host of supposed Islamic charities, you know, the kind that the HLF involved itself in, and is now sitting in the slammer because of it. The growth of sharia financing is most certainly going to translate into the channeling of money to Islamic terrorist groups,….without a doubt. KGS
DALLAS – A federal judge imposed what could amount to life sentences on three former leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) on Wednesday for illegally routing more than $12 million to Hamas.
“The purpose of creating the Holy Land Foundation was as a fundraising arm for Hamas,” said U.S. District Judge Jorge Solis.
He sentenced former HLF Chief Executive Officer Shukri Abu Baker and co-founder Ghassan Elashi to 65 years in prison. Longtime HLF chairman Mohamed El-Mezain, who was convicted only on one count of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, received the maximum 15-year sentence.
All three men are at least 50 years old. Another defendant, Mufid Abdelqader, 49, was sentenced to 20 years in prison. The sentencing of HLF’s New Jersey Office Director, Abdelrahman Odeh, still remains.
While appeals are being prepared, the sentencing hearings end the largest terror financing case in the United States, one which closed the largest Muslim-American charity in 2001. Its significance, however, resonates far beyond the Dallas courtroom and the five men convicted by a jury last November.
The evidence showed that HLF was part of a broad Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy in the United States called the Palestine Committee, which was to serve Hamas with “media, money and men.” Those exhibits show the depth of Muslim Brotherhood activity here, which at its height included a think tank in Virginia, a propaganda arm in Texas and Chicago, and a political operation that continues to exert influence today.
It also led to the discovery of a Brotherhood memorandum from 1991 that describes the group’s goal in America. It called for a “civilization-jihadist process” and a “grand jihad” that aimed at “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within … so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a Palestine Committee legacy. Last year, the FBI decided to cut off communication with CAIR due to concerns about the evidence showing the organization’s Hamas roots.
“Nevertheless, until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner,” wrote Richard C. Powers, an assistant director in the FBI’s office of Congressional Affairs, last month.
