“A federal jury on Thursday convicted the co-founder of an Islamic charity chapter who was accused of helping smuggle $150,000 to Muslim fighters in Chechnya.
Seda claimed the money was intended as a tithe that his accountant failed to disclose on a tax return for the U.S. chapter of the Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation in Ashland, Ore. The foundation has been declared a terrorist organization by the U.S. government.
Prosecutors said Seda had a more sinister purpose, arguing throughout the weeklong trial that he was a Muslim radical posing as a moderate promoting peace. They alleged he was trying to smuggle the money to help fighters overthrow the Chechnyan government.
Jack: Take note, readers: the U.S. chapter of the Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation has been declared a terrorist organization by the U.S. government.
Another American Muslim “Charity” turns out to a terrorist organization. And the media is just so puzzled about why American citizens are alarmed at the encroaching growth of Islam in their towns and cities.
Is America Islamophobic? NO! We just do not want more and more deceitful, dangerous Islamic organizations in our nation.
