U.S. indicts Muslim charity in Texas

The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, its executive director, its chairman and five other men were named in the 42-count federal indictment unsealed Tuesday.[...]

Among the men charged were Shukri Abu Baker, the foundation's former chief executive, and chairman Ghassan Elashi. Three charges of filing a false tax return applied only to Abu Baker and Elashi.

And let's not forget Elashi's connections to the Council on American-Islamic Relations or his recent conviction for conspiracy to violate the Export Administration Regulationsand the Libyan Sanctions Regulations.
