MUSLIM CHARITY LOSES COURT ROUND ON FUNDS
Washington--A Dallas-area Muslim charity accused of bankrolling the Hamas
terrorist organization lost a key round Friday in its effort to reclaim
millions of dollars frozen by the federal government.
A three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the
Treasury Department had "ample" evidence to shut down the Holy Land
Foundation for Relief and Development in December 2001 and seize assets
estimated at $4 million to $5 million.
>As I recall from the press coverage -- more like the
>press persecution campaign - by the Dallas Morning
>News, the Holy Land Foundation was fingered as
>supporting Hamas in large part with the "help" of the
>intelligence services of the Zionist Entity.
>Clearly what the Mossad has turned up on these people
>is accepted by the US establishment as credible.
Supposedly one doesn't normally seize property on the
word of a foreign intelligence service, but "Israel"
is consistently the exception.
