CAIR Founder Charged For Supporting Hamas Killers


CAIR Founder Charged For Supporting Hamas Killers

Ghassan Elashi, founder of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Texas , along with six others, have been charged with "supporting the militant Palestinian group Hamas and with money laundering and conspiracy," reports Reuters News.

Main news feeds have hardly given this item notice. Further, all major feeds, including Reuters, have deleted any mention of Ghassan Elashi being the CAIR Texas founder. I wonder why.

Is it because media runs scared of CAIR’s influence in the United States ? Or because of threats from CAIR?

"’A federal grand jury in Dallas returned the 42 charges against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development and the seven men in an indictment unsealed.’" That was announced by the US Attorney General.

"’A U.S.-based charity that claims to do good works is charged with funding the works of evil. The indictment alleges that the Holy Land Foundation was created for the purpose of providing financial and material support to Hamas.

"It is alleged that over the years, the Holy Land Foundation provided significant financial resources to Hamas, known Hamas leaders and key strategists.’"

The accused are to be sentenced on August 1. Penalties carry a maximum 10-year prison sentence.

Why does the mainstream press cover up this news item's full detail? Why is it not stated that one of  the accused is founder of the Texas CAIR?
