David Cole reviews the report by Human Rights Watch
I concluded that the US government can punish you for trying to help people in Gaza and The West Bank. Draw your own conclusions.
Taken From The New Yorker Magazine :Terror Prosecutions and Muslim-Americans
Five former employees and board members of what was once the largest Muslim charity in the United States, the Holy Land Foundation, are currently serving sentences of up to sixty-five years in prison—longer than many sentences for murder—for providing “material support” to Hamas. The prosecution offered no evidence that the charity ever supported any violence, let alone terrorist violence. It did not even claim that the charity provided direct material support to Hamas. Instead, the government argued that funds distributed to charities in the West Bank and used for peaceful, charitable purposes amounted to aiding Hamas because these charities were fronts for Hamas—even though the government had never designated them as such and had itself provided aid to some.
