US Treasury bans another Muslim charity

The govenment should be moving faster to shut down these terror fund raisers.

"WASHINGTON, July 24 (Reuters) - The U.S. Treasury Department said on Tuesday it has moved to block financing to Lebanese guerrilla group Hezbollah by banning U.S. transactions with a foundation in Iran and a finance company in Lebanon.

The Treasury said in a statement it was designating the Tehran-based Martyrs Foundation and the Al-Qard al-Hassan finance firm in Beirut as providing financial support to terrorist organizations."

A "guerrilla group"? Leave it to al Reuters to fail to mention Hezbollah is a terrorist organization.
