Two men accused of furnishing money and fresh recruits to the Palestinian group Hamas were acquitted of racketeering but convicted on lesser charges. The two men beamed broadly at the split verdict Thursday and defense attorneys immediately declared victory in the three-month trial that the government had described as a major component in its war on terrorism. "We are not terrorists," former grocer Muhammad Salah told reporters as he left the courthouse with his 8-year-old son, Ibrahim, on his shoulders. "I feel good," he said as he was hugged by relatives and well wishers. "I thank God and I hope justice will prevail." "This is a great day for justice," said Salah's attorney, Michael E. Deutsch.
