FBI agent: Charity leaders attended Hamas meeting

August 7, 2007 02:38

An FBI agent testified Monday that leaders of a Muslim charity in the United States plotted to derail a Middle East peace accord they feared would prevent the elimination of Israel. The agent said leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development were among US-based supporters of the Palestinian group Hamas who met at a Philadelphia hotel in 1993. The agent said the FBI bugged the conference room, capturing conversations in which Holy Land Chief Executive Shukri Abu Baker repeatedly told attendees to refer to Hamas as "Samah" - Hamas spelled backward.
