CHICAGO (AP) — A Muslim charity leader linked by prosecutors to Osama bin Laden's terrorist network was sentenced yesterday to more than 11 years in federal prison for defrauding donors.
Enaam Arnaout, 41, a Syrian-born U.S. citizen who said he has met bin Laden but opposes terrorism, was calm as the sentence was imposed by U.S. District Judge Suzanne B. Conlon.

She ordered Arnaout to pay $315,624 in restitution and recommended that it be turned over to the United Nations for refugee work.
Since when is the UN considered the only charity out there? Why choose the UN, and not some charity that has a better reputation? There's more racketeering and fraud in the UN than there is in Benevolence International.

"Prosecutors said he lied about his associations with bin Laden and his supporters."
It is okay for muslims to lie, to further their "religion."
The justification is called "Al Taqiyah" and when muslims hear that we know about it, they lie about what it means.
Deception and cleverness are regarded more highly than honesty by muslims. But if you confront them about this, they will deny that it is so--just another lie.
At the end of it all, they wish to take over control of the world and make us all live under islamic law, just like Saudi Arabia, Iran, etc.
