    An appellate court has upheld a $156 million judgment against two organizations found to have provided financial support to Hamas and sent the claim against a third back to district court for a new trial. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling Wednesday that eliminated the distinction between supporting the violent and social wings of a terrorist group. "If you give money to an organization that you know to be engaged in terrorism, the fact that you earmark it for the organization's nonterrorist activities does not get you off the liability hook," Judge Richard Posner wrote for the...

    City Colleges fire lecturer with terror ties June 6, 2003 BY ANA MENDIETA, Staff Reporter A Bridgeview man who served five years in an Israeli prison for allegedly channeling funds to Islamic terrorists has been fired from his job at City Colleges for failing to disclose his conviction, officials said Thursday. Mohammed Salah was terminated Wednesday from his job as a part-time lecturer at Olive-Harvey College because he failed to list his conviction on his employment application in February 2002, said Paula Bridges, City Colleges' director of marketing and public relations. Salah, a U.S. citizen, was arrested in Jerusalem in...

    Counterterrorism efforts got a major boost last week when a U.S. district court found three Muslim organizations and one individual, mostly based in the Chicago area, guilty of funding Hamas and fined them an astonishing $156 million. The four were found liable for their roles in the murder of an American teenager, David Boim, on May 13, 1996, when he was shot by Hamas operatives as he waited for a bus near Jerusalem. This case is important in itself, providing some measure of justice and relief for the Boim family. Beyond that, it helps fight terrorism in four ways. First,...

  • Parents of slain teen to get millions [$156M judgement against islamic charities]

    Three Islamic charities and a suspected fund-raiser for the Palestinian militant group Ha-mas were ordered yesterday to pay $156 million to the parents of an American teenager killed by terrorists outside Jerusalem. A federal jury deliberated for one day before awarding $52 million in damages to the parents of David Boim, who was shot at a bus stop eight years ago. U.S. Magistrate Judge Arlander Keys then tripled the damages. But it is uncertain whether the family can collect much money from the defendants, some of whom have had their assets frozen by the government. Before the trial started, Keys...

    CHICAGO (AP) — Lawyers for the family of an American teenager gunned down in Israel's West Bank urged a jury Wednesday to make U.S.-based Islamic groups pay millions of dollars in damages for allegedly helping finance terrorism. "The international terrorist group Hamas has some of its biggest supporters right here in the United States," Richard M. Hoffman, attorney for the family of the slain teen, said in the penalty phase of a civil trial against several Islamic groups and an alleged Hamas fund-raiser. U.S. Magistrate Judge Arlander Keys ruled earlier this month that Hamas was responsible for the shooting of...
