Justice Is Served: Holy Land Foundation Found Guilty On All Counts

Wow. This is great, and unexpected news. I had lost track of this story since I blogged about the mistrial last year.

The Holy Land Foundation, the largest Islamic charity in the US, was found guilty of funneling over $12 million to Hamas today.
The Dallas Morning News reported:
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.

The original trial was declared a mistrial,  after the jury deadlocked. One moonbat juror reportedly “ran roughshod over most other panelists, whose intellectual abilities he has criticized.” Among other things, Neal has gone on record to say that he didn’t even think the defense needed to stand up and present a case; that the prosecution case was “a waste of time;” that the case was only about George Bush. “

I wasn’t holding out much hope for the new trial, so I’m pleasantly surprised.

  1. No justice was achieved by this trial but rather injustice was achieved as it has become a crime to feed the poor and the hungry. I am a shammed of the judicial process that fell for politics and not the law. The United Nation is currently feeding the Palestinians in Gaza, which is controlled by Hamas, does it men that the United Nation is aiding Hamas????? Feeding the poor and hungry is a moral behavior that is shared by the whole world not just Muslims. This is just another stab at Islam and Muslims for feeding the Palestinians who has been under siege and under occupation since 1948 to try making them accept the peace process at any cost. This Will Never Work now or in the future.
