Hamas charity blacklisted


The United States blacklisted a Palestinian charity, calling it a front for Hamas.

The U.S. Treasury announced this week it was cutting off the Al-Salah Society, a charity operating in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, from the U.S. financial system.

“Hamas has used the Al-Salah Society, as it has many other charitable fronts, to finance its terrorist agenda,” the director of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, Adam Szubin, said in a statement.
