Palestinian brothers inside the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip are listed in government election filings as having donated $29,521.54 to Sen. Barack Obama's campaign.
The donations would violate election laws, including prohibitions on receiving donations from foreigners and guidelines against accepting more than $2,300 from one individual during a single election, Bob Biersack, a spokesman for the Federal Election Commission, told WND in response to a query.
The contributions also raise numerous questions about the Obama campaign's lax online donation form, which apparently allows for the possibility of foreign contributions.
Last week, the Atlas Shrugs blog outlined a series of donations in 2007 made to Obama's campaign from two individuals, Monir Edwan and Hosam Edwan, totaling $29,521.54.
In an online form on Obama's campaign site, the Edwans listed their street as "Tal Esaltan," which they wrote was located in "Rafah, GA."
Rafah is not a city in Georgia. The Atlas blog immediately raised concerns that the money may have been donated from the Gaza Strip town of Rafah.
The Edwans' donations are listed in both FEC filings and other election filing sites, such as CampaignMoney and donordata.org.

Ouch! That’s going to cost them some bulldozers and suicide vests.
For that price they sure would have gotten some Katyushas.
...and so it begins, welcome to August. Let’s hope this snowball gathers weight and girth as it begins to roll downhill.
Now, do they get to have their picture taken with B. Hussein for a donation that large?
They'll be sorry they did this. Now they'll be solicited by every RAT pol in the U S A.
Well, we know where they get there money from.
He and his campaign have added to this image themselves because during Obama's trip to Europe there was just something about his huge crowd in Berlin wildly cheering and supporting him as a populist candidate for change, that is unsetteling and that evokes bad memories in the American consciousness.
I’m sure they get least a night in the Lincoln Bedroom.
The Democrats have been allies of the terrorists since 9/11, so no big surprise.
Nickel and dime stuff. How many millions did the Chinese Communists funnel to Bill Clinton in 1996?
The thought of two Islamic men sharing the Lincoln bedroom is disturbing to me.
Of course, whatever happens probably won’t match the antics which occurred in there during the Clintoon Administration.
Monir and Hasam Edwan denied their financial transactions online listed as donations in U.S. government election filings were actual donations to Obama's campaign. Instead they claimed they purchased about $30,000 in Obama T-shirts from the presidential candidate's online store a contention that did not hold up during a WND interview, when they changed their story several times.
At first Monir Edwan claimed he sold the T-shirts in Gaza for around $9 and that a profit was made...
But it was pointed out to Edwan the T-shirts for sale on Obama's website are listed as $20.08 and that selling the merchandise for less would not yield a profit. "Maybe we sold the shirts for a lot more. I can't remember now," said Edwan.
Asked why he would purchase T-shirts at such a high rate and pay the cost of shipping when he could pay a company to produce T-shirts for less, Edwan replied, "We wanted the shirts to come from the campaign."
But Edwan could not explain how he managed to get shipments of T-shirts into the Gaza Strip during the months he claimed to have purchased the merchandise, since Israel imposed a tight closure of the Gaza Strip starting in June 2007 that lasted until June 2008, when the Israeli government agreed to a cease-fire with Hamas in Gaza.
If Bob Biersack wants to avoid changing from alive to dead (Red Drawf reference) when the messiah is enthroned he’s better STFU.
I gave this story to Pamela at Atlas Shrugs...it was my find!!!
