The group has been able to parlay its political clout into a lucrative buyout practice (in other words, purchasing struggling companies, turning them around, and selling them for huge profits)--everything from defense contractors to telecommunications and aerospace companies. It is a kind of ruthless investing made popular by the movie Wall Street, and any industry that relies heavily on government regulation is fair game for Carlyle's brand of access capitalism.

CHICAGO — The federal government charged the executive director of an Islamic charity with perjury Tuesday, saying he lied about his longtime ties to Usama bin Laden.


The government also charged that the charity, Benevolence International Foundation, sponsored associates of bin Laden who tried to obtain nuclear and chemical weapons for the Al Qaeda terror organization and also plotted to assassinate Pope John Paul II.


Officials said Benevolence International Foundation had links to bin Laden going back decades and gave sizable amounts of cash to his group as well as to charitable causes. Enaam M. Arnaout, 39, the head of the charity based in south suburban Palos Hills, was arrested Tuesday at his home in nearby Justice.


An FBI affidavit does not accuse him or the organization of involvement in those plots. But it alleges that they lied about their ties to terrorists who were involved.


The FBI charged in its affidavit that the charity had links to individuals involved in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, a plot to bomb U.S. airlines and a plan to assassinate the pope.


"This complaint alleges Benevolence International Foundation was supporting violence secretly," U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald said.

Operation Mountain Express, the investigation that began with a tip from FedEx, ended in July 2000 with the arrest of 140 people accused of supplying pseudoephedrine to Mexican drug cartels operating in California. Days later, Attorney General Janet Reno held a news conference to tout it as a DEA success story.

"This operation should send a message," Reno said. ". . . Whether you are a dealer, a manufacturer, or one who makes it all possible by providing the chemical ingredients, you will be held accountable."

Tandy, then a top narcotics attorney under Reno, was livid. She noted that the DEA itself had licensed many of the people charged with supplying pseudoephedrine to meth traffickers. According to people familiar with the case, Tandy posed a steely question to DEA officials afterward."

DEA's Operation MOUNTAIN EXPRESS, a nationwide investigation targeting PSE traffickers, investigators learned that wholesalers in Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, Texas, Arkansas, Illinois and New York were shipping multi-ton quantities of PSE tablets that ended up in California for the production of methamphetamine. The take down of this criminal network resulted in the arrests of more than 140 individuals in eight cities and enforcement actions against at least 35 others. More than US$8 million, 10 metric tons of PSE tablets, 83 pounds of finished methamphetamine, two PSE extraction laboratories, one methamphetamine laboratory, and 136 pounds of chemical solvents and reagents were seized.

Press Corner
Bank closes mosque account-Donations to charity in terror case cited
March 15, 2005

By Deborah Horan and Laurie Cohen
Tribune staff reporters

A Palos Hills bank has closed the account of a controversial Bridgeview mosque because the mosque donated $10,000 to an Islamic charity that is now under federal scrutiny for allegedly helping terrorists.

Family Bank and Trust Co. told the Mosque Foundation to take its business elsewhere in a December letter to mosque leaders, said the mosque's imam, Sheikh Jamal Said.

In a later meeting with mosque leaders, bank officials said they took the action because the mosque wrote two checks totaling $10,000 to the Islamic American Relief Agency, said Mosque Foundation President Oussama Jamal.

HERE IS SOME HISTOTY TO READ IN FULL PLEASE CLICK HERE

A bit of history:

In February, as part of an ongoing series we have been doing about militant Islam in America, we came upon the activities of Oussama Jammal and the Bridgeview Mosque Foundation in Illinois.

Oussama Jammal is the Mosque's president and Sheikh Jamal Said its Imam, or religious leader. It has a reputation for being a nerve center of Islamist organizing, recruitment and fundraising activity. As a result, it has been under law enforcement scrutiny for over a decade.

Bridgeview has a long history of funding groups like Hamas [In a February 8, 2004 article, the Chicago Tribune listed the following entities as having received substantial funding from Bridgeview: "Al-Aqsa Educational Fund, Benevolence International Foundation, Global Relief Foundation, Holy Land Foundation For Relief And Development, Islamic Association For Palestine, and the Quranic Literacy Institute"] - through a complex arrangement of financial ties provided by organizations like the Holy Land Foundation For Relief and Development [formerly the largest Muslim "charitable" foundation in the United States].

Jamal said the mosque made its donations in August and September, before the U.S. government froze the charity's assets and raided its Missouri offices in October. At that time, the Treasury Department alleged the organization was part of an international front group for Al Qaeda, a charge denied by Islamic American Relief.

Bank officials declined to comment about the Mosque Foundation.

A mosque in Houston founded by former NBA star Hakeem Olajuwon came under fire this year for contributing to Islamic American Relief and another charity allegedly linked to terrorism. Olajuwon has said he was unaware of any terrorism connections when he made the donations.

The Bridgeview mosque, one of the area's largest, has attracted attention because of the ultraconservative religious views of some of its leaders and their public support of Palestinian militants. One of the mosque's former officials was indicted last year, accused of helping to run a 15-year racketeering scheme to fund terrorism by the militant Islamic group Hamas.

Before its recent donations to Islamic American Relief, the mosque made two other donations to the charity totaling $20,393 in 1992 and 1999, according to mosque annual reports. The mosque also gave a total of about $374,000 to three other charities that were later shut down by the federal government and accused of having links to terrorism: Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Benevolence International Foundation and Global Relief Foundation.

The closing of the mosque's bank account has prompted some community leaders to question the mosque's decision to allow Islamic American Relief to solicit donations in Bridgeview.

"Why would the Mosque Foundation take the risk in giving money to any organization that is somehow suspect?" said Omar Najib, an attorney and longtime critic of the Bridgeview mosque's leadership. Najib said the money could have been better spent locally or sent to impoverished Palestinians.

But others in the community questioned the bank's right to close an account based on a transaction that was legal at the time it was made. Muslim civil rights activists said they fear that more banks will be overly cautious about Muslim accounts.

"We're starting to see a trend of Muslim institutions and individuals' [accounts] being closed summarily without any explanation," said Arsalan Iftikar, a legal adviser for the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. "We're concerned we're seeing a pattern here."

Iftikar said that a northern New Jersey bank recently closed a mosque's accounts in that state, and that mosque officials suspected the action was taken because of a discrepancy in the name of one of the mosque officers. The council's New Jersey chapter has written a letter to the bank protesting the action, he said.

Mosque President Jamal said Islamic charity workers come to the Bridgeview mosque almost every Friday to collect donations for everything from tsunami relief to Palestinian refugees. He said the mosque does "due diligence" to ensure the charities are legitimate.

Mosque officials said they had checked out Islamic American Relief before allowing its representatives to solicit donations. The charity claimed to support humanitarian causes in Muslim lands, including Africa, that provided care for orphans, relief to disaster and famine victims, and aid to refugees.

In Bridgeview, charity representatives said they were seeking funds for refugees in Darfur, Sudan, according to mosque officials. Worshipers wrote checks either directly to Islamic American Relief or to the Mosque Foundation, stipulating that the money should go to the charity.



"We did this before we knew the organization was under scrutiny," Jamal said.

When it froze the charity's assets in October, the Treasury Department alleged that the group was part of an international network linked to terrorism called the Islamic African Relief Agency. The international group is accused of giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to Al Qaeda and helping to raise $5 million for another Osama bin Laden-related group. Many financial institutions are automatically notified of such Treasury actions against suspected terrorist supporters.

In December, the bank closed the mosque account. On Jan. 14, Said, the mosque's imam, read the bank's letter to worshipers during Friday prayers.

Itedal Shalabi, a community activist, said she wants proof that the mosque did something wrong. "I don't want the burden to be laid on the mosque to prove they are innocent," Shalabi said. "I want the bank to prove they are guilty."

Susan Hofer, a spokeswoman for the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, said privacy laws prevent bank regulators and banks from discussing individual accounts. In general, Hofer said banks aren't required to explain why they close customer accounts.

But she added that banks aren't allowed to discriminate based on such factors as race and religion and said the department, in conjunction with the Illinois Department of Human Rights, would investigate any allegations of discrimination.

Family Bank, with assets of about $81.7 million, ran afoul of state and federal banking regulators in 2002. Regulators said the bank failed to comply with rules requiring it to report large cash transactions and any other suspicious activities by its customers. Those problems have been cleared up, bank regulators said.

Public records show that two of the bank's customers, brothers Khaldon Esawi and Khaled Obeid, were indicted in 2002 for allegedly leading an operation to smuggle into the U.S. millions of dollars worth of a chemical used to make methamphetamine. Jamal said the mosque had planned to close its account at the bank because of the bank's association with the two men. Bank officials declined to comment on Esawi and Obeid.

Until the one month anniversary of the September 11 attacks against the United States, Saudi Prince Al-Walid bin Talal bin Abdulaziz was not recognizable to most people outside of the Middle East and international business circles. Although he was then listed by Forbes magazine as the six richest person in the world (he is now eleventh) and had invested the bulk of his estimated $20 billion fortune in high-profile American corporations, until October 11, 2001 Al-Walid remained what Business Week once called "the most important financial kingpin that you've never heard of."1 His gift of a $10 million check to the victims of the World Trade Center disaster on that day would have made him a celebrity in the United States, had it not been followed by a statement so offensive to most Americans that New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani promptly returned it. The intense media frenzy which resulted was quickly superceded by the war in Afghanistan, however, and the prince soon became a mere antagonist in Giuliani's mythic rise to national fame.


In the Middle East, however, the confrontation with Giuliani helped transform the prince from a rich, but politically marginal, member of the Saudi royal family into one of the most respected public figures in the Arab world. This fame may eventually translate into political power. Once dubbed the "rogue prince" by the London Times for his advocacy of political reforms in of Saudi Arabia,2 Al-Walid is now considered by some to be the strongest political contender among the third generation Saudi royals who will one day inherit power from the aging sons of the kingdom's founder, Abdulaziz bin Saud


In the meantime, the prince has begun preparing for a more immediate power play - not in Riyadh, but in Beirut. Al-Walid, whose mother is Lebanese, is believed to be under consideration by the Syrians to succeed Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri - an ambition that he has repeatedly refused to disclaim.

QUESTION EVERYTHING:

If you really seek truth, then do what every educated and intelligent man or woman would do:
Stop defending your faith and start questioning it.
Unless you have the moral courage to ask questions, you will never get the answers. Just as every coin has two sides, every picture has two faces, religion too has two sides. You were never shown the dark side of religion. Your parents only showed the good side. Even the good side may not look so good once you examine it critically and rationally.
So my friend start questioning your faith right now and let your brain’s faculties of reason and common sense analyze it rationally. I promise you, your brain will experience the most incredible and wonderful journey of its life. You will literally see a whole new world open up to you.

Once you take the first step and start questioning your faith, and start reading books that critically analyze the world around you, you will be on your way to absolute freedom; a freedom that comes from the knowledge that you are your own master and you owe nothing to any man-made deity in the sky and you are here by chance and as a result of natural selection.
You do not have to do it for me, You do it for yourself, because you do deserve the answers, you do deserve the truth.

“Religion is the biggest vacuum cleaner ever sold to the people by the people to rip off people”.
Think critically
