Twelve jurors and six alternates were chosen Monday for the federal racketeering conspiracy trial of two men accused of supplying money and fresh recruits to the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas. Chicago grocer Muhammad Salah, 53, and former university professor Abdelhaleem Ashqar, 48, of Alexandria, Virginia are accused of taking part in a 15-year conspiracy in which money allegedly was funneled into American bank accounts and then delivered to Hamas military cells waging a terrorist campaign in Israel. Recruits also were allegedly mustered in the United States and sent overseas to join Hamas forces trying to topple the Israeli government. Both men deny they are members of Hamas.
