Upcoming Holy Land Foundation Appeal for Justice - by Stephen Lendman

On September 1, the US 5th Circuit Appeals Court will hear arguments on behalf of five wrongly convicted Holy Land Foundation (HLF) principles. More on their case below.

On June 15, 2009 former UK MP turned activist George Galloway said:

"As I stand here in Dallas, I have to say it's one of the most monstrous injustices in modern times in America."

It's that and more, attorney Nancy Hollander, representing Shukri Abu Baker, HLF's President and CEO, saying:

"It's remarkable. My client was convicted of providing charity. There was not, in ten years of wiretapping his home, his office, looking at his faxes, listening to everything he said, there was not one word out of his mouth about violence to anyone or about support for Hamas." 

HLF provided charity for needy people. Bush administration prosecutors called it a crime. So does Obama's Justice Department, also persecuting innocent Muslims lawlessly. 

As a result, family and friends of convicted HLF principals ask, "Is it a crime to feed these children," showing images of three young boys no one would deny the right to food aid. In fact, anyone raising money for it is honorable, not villainous.
