Not Guilty -- Govt. loses terrorism finance case

Richardson, Texas-based Holy Land Foundation, shut down by Bush in 2001 for allegedly providing financial support to Hamas, won a major victory today. In the U.S. Government vs. the Holy Land Foundation, a mistrial was declared, and all but one defendant has been acquitted of all but one count.

The Morning News has more.

What the DMN won't tell you is the true significance of this trial. Had the government won, it could have meant the end of humanitarian aid to Palestine from the United States. When HLF gave charity to organizations that the state of Israel had approved as legitimate, only to get popped, that could have sealed off the remaining support for a people who literally have nothing.

But that didn't happen today.
