U.S. court overturns $156 million award in terror case


December 30, 2007 (REUTERS) — On Friday, the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals reversed a December 2004 ruling that found three U.S.-based Islamic charities and an individual, whom the plaintiffs charged had ties to Hamas, had played a role in the boy’s death because they had raised money for Hamas.

George Bush said this on Sept. 20, 2001: “Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.” — Does that make the US Courts hostile regimes? Think about it.

How can there be any question of clear causality between Hamas’s actions and any group that supports it? The Holy Land Foundation was shut down by the EU and the US for contributing to Hamas — i.e. to terrorism. This decision makes no sense.

Final note: The Holy Land Foundation may be alive and well and ready for new business. See the ‘who is’ information for www.hlf.org. According to The Register, the site’s administrator is still Bayan Elashi. Will HLF resume internet operations soon? With the 7th Circuit court’s reversal, they just might. — PID
