HLF Founders Sentenced to Long Prison Terms

Fantastic. Good news in the war against the Islamic Jihad. This has to be considered a major victory for the America and the West as it sets president for the many similar cases that will be prosecuted in the future.

May all of these Muslim terrorists spend the rest of their miserable lives in solitary confinement. I say solitary not so much as punishment, but to keep these monsters from influencing other inmates to join Islam and become terrorists themselves.

DALLAS - A federal judge imposed what could amount to life sentences on three former leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) on Wednesday for illegally routing more than $12 million to Hamas.
"The purpose of creating the Holy Land Foundation was as a fundraising arm for Hamas," said U.S. District Judge Jorge Solis.

He sentenced former HLF Chief Executive Officer Shukri Abu Baker and co-founder Ghassan Elashi to 65 years in prison. Longtime HLF chairman Mohamed El-Mezain, who was convicted only on one count of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, received the maximum 15-year sentence.

All three men are at least 50 years old. Another defendant, Mufid Abdelqader, 49, was sentenced to 20 years in prison. HLF's New Jersey Office Director, Abdelrahman Odeh, received a 15-year sentence.
