On Tuesday the federal authorities struck another serious blow against the toleration of Islamist terrorist activities on American soil, by arresting five former leaders of the so-called Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, which, as I have previously argued, would be better called the Holy War Foundation. HLF is, after all, a front for the Palestinian suicide terror gang Hamas, which is mainly funded by Saudi Arabia.

HLF long functioned as the nerve center of the Wahhabi lobby in the U.S., headquartered in Texas, with branch offices in Paterson, N.J., Bridgeview, Ill., and San Diego. Established in 1989, HLF took off when it received a $200,000 cash infusion from Musa Abu Marzook, the external director of Hamas, who lived in the United States until he was deported in 1997. Marzook, brother-in-law of Ghassan Elashi, financed six terrorist attacks in Israel from his home in Falls Church, Va. In 1995, the U.S. authorities asked for the arrest and deportation of Marzook to Israel, where he had been indicted for involvement in terror attacks carried out while he resided in the U.S., and in which 47 people were killed.

Federal authorities had been watching the foundation since 1996, and concerned American Muslims had denounced its activities on numerous occasions. On September 5, 2001, less than a week before the World Trade Center atrocities, federal anti-terrorism agents raided InfoCom Corporation, the company that ran the HLF website. The InfoCom connection is crucial to understanding relations between the various components of the Islamist terror operation. According to defectors from the conspiracy, the HLF web server was used by virtually the entire Wahhabi lobby: the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Students Association of the U.S. and Canada, and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the latter being the Western Hemisphere arm of the Jamaat-i-Islami, a murderous Wahhabi movement wreaking chaos in Pakistan.
The HLF network has also included such other terrorist front groups as the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP) and the American Muslims for Jerusalem. These groups appeared independent of one another, but nearly all of them drew from the common financial and technical pool at HLF. They did not disagree or compete; they were diverse shops offering identical ideological content. All shared a single administrative and technical contact for the maintenance of the web server. They had been erected as political shells around the Hamas hydra-head represented by HLF.

Back in the U.S., the federal authorities are unlikely to heed the chorus of condemnation that will be forthcoming in the HLF case, and actions like that against HLF will continue. When we look back to September 11, we can say that many legal victories against the terrorist conspiracy have been achieved: Randall Ismail Royer, the buddy of antiwar screecher Dennis Justin Raimondo is doing 20 years in prison; Abdurrahman Alamoudi, who once pranced before the White House shouting his allegiance to Hamas, is behind bars and facing trial; HLF is now history. But there is much more to be done, beginning with serious inquiries into the financing of CAIR and their cohort, and the investigation and arrest in Saudi Arabia of members of the Golden Chain.

Smoke 'em where you find them...
A Stephen Schwartz/Suleyman Ahmad ping.
Anyone else remember Schwartz's undying support for Clinton's bombing of the Serbs in support of the Jihadist-supported KLA?
You can bet he's hoping the rest of us forget!
Hey, anyone can make a mistake from 15,000 feet.
I can NEVER forget Stephen Schwartz/Suleyman Ahmad's TOTAL support for the KLA and islamist "Bosnia". That's because of his infamous article in which he attacked "Honorary Serb" as a prime example of American support for Serbian "fascism" and 'islamophobia" on the Internet. More recently, I've had the opportunity to post on FR the real reason why I chose the screeen-name "Honorary Serb", which has nothing whatsoever to do with hatred or fascism.
A for Suleyman's pal Ceric, he is a MASTER practitioner of taqqia--islamist lying designed to pull the wool over the infidel's eyes. muslim "Bosnia" was established as a springboard for the islamization of Europe, and Ceric himself at least once had ambitions to be the "Grand Mufti of Europe".
He and Suleyman (as well as the late Alija Izetbegovic) aren't Wahhabi because they prefer the Iranian version of IslamoNazism. However, they also had and still have Wahhabi-oriented mujahdin fighting against the Serbs, and now (as Al Qaeda) fighting against America as well!!
Thanks for the post and ping, Saber. These folks office in Richardson, Tx. is/was/whatever a 20 minute drive from my house. Bush froze their assets 2.5 years ago.
These idiots claim to be a 'charity' organization giving help to women and children. They are women and children HOMICIDE bombers is the part they leave out.
The Elashis were found guilty in a recent case just finished up and these new charges come out now. Hope they get prison time now.
Isn't this the group where one of the leaders has a brother who is the city engineer for Dallas, Texas or is this another group?
It's the same group of terrorists.
