Attorneys for one of two men accused of furnishing thousands of dollars and fresh recruits to a Palestinian terrorist network rested their case Thursday following testimony from an expert on torture. Closing arguments were set for Monday at the racketeering trial of former Chicago grocer Muhammad Salah, 53, and Abdelhaleem Ashqar, 48, a former assistant professor of business at Washington's Howard University. Federal prosecutors say the two men were members of the Palestinian group Hamas and helped to bankroll a wave of terror that included bombings, kidnappings and murder aimed at toppling the Israeli government. Dr. Metin Basoglu, an authority on the psychological mechanisms created by torture, testified over a live video feed from Istanbul where he lives.
