Holy Land Trial Goes to Jury

The retrial of a Muslim charity accused of funding terrorism has gone to the jury.

Deliberations were set to begin Wednesday in a Dallas federal court in the second trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. The group is accused of funneling $12 million to Palestinian schools and charities controlled by Hamas. The defendants argue that the charity was doing humanitarian work.

Last year’s first trial ended with no convictions and a mistrial on most of the charges.
