The FBI on Thursday raided an accountant's West Park office, his home and a building containing both a mosque and an Islamic school, seizing records and computers in a money-laundering probe.
What's behind the investigation is unclear, but anti-terrorism prosecutors are handling the case. Officials declined to discuss details. And the target of the investigation - Abrar Haque - did not respond to several messages left at his business. His attorney, Mark Devan, declined to comment.
Haque, 43, is a certified public accountant and financial planner who helped launch a small Lorain Avenue mosque 15 years ago. The Islamic Mosque, which has since moved into a former church on Rocky River Drive, was touched by a terror-financing probe three years ago.
In that case, the FBI uncovered a murder and arson plot designed to raise money for "the cause" in Afghanistan.
One of the men who pleaded guilty in that case - Saleh Nawash - was a spiritual leader of the Islamic Mosque. Nawash tried to hire a hit man to have his Lorain Avenue meat shop, Halal Products, torched so he could collect the insurance money and spend part of it financing "the cause" in Afghanistan, home base to al-Qaida and birthplace of various Islamic terror orginizations.
Authorities, despite convicting Nawash and another man, never revealed what "the cause" is. And its unclear whether this week's investigation is connected.

"Someone is gonna miss tax season..."
LOL, you're right! Sucks to be him.
Possible translation: All CAIR affiliated mosques are a criminal enterprise?
Go get 'em IRS!
Well, Isam, I myself am waiting for the day when CAIR headquarters itself is raided and shut down, you moon-worshipping infidel-hating son of a goat!
From personal experience the majority of muslims in the US are traitors!!!
They gotta throw that islamic spokesman crap into every article.
To bad the liberal minds couldn't understand why we need the Patriot Act.
Note to FBI: Please keep an eye on the Southern California Islamic Center, Third & Vermont, Los Angeles.
one down, several thousand to go.

For me the State of Illinois and Jackson/Hewitt suck ;)
