SUPPORTING JIHAD IN AMERICA: Why Does Bush Allow This? FRONTPAGE Magazine.com ^ | 9/5/2003 | Evan McCormick

On August 22nd, President Bush designated five charities and six senior Hamas officials as Special Designated Global Terrorist Entities (SDGTs), freezing their assets and barring financial transactions with US nationals.

As US Treasury Secretary John Snow said, Hamas leaders and those who provide their funding again have the blood of innocents on their hands.
Musa Abu Marzook
Among the SDGTs named is Musa Abu Marzook, who currently serves as the Deputy Chief of Hamas Political Bureau in Syria. Prior to working out of Syria, Marzook was responsible for establishing a major base of international financial and political support for Hamasright here in the United States.
In 1981, Marzook founded the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) in Richardson, Texas. Throughout the decade, the organization featured Hamas terrorists and radical clerics as keynote speakers at its annual gatherings. The 1989 convention in Kansas City was addressed by a veiled terrorist who recounted the sabotaging of a bus that killed 16 people in Israel. One year later, at another IAP conference in Kansas City, leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas were featured guests.
