Federal investigators believe a prominent U.S. Muslim activist helped fund Hamas. Abdurahman Alamoudi was charged Oct. 23 with bringing $340,000 into the United States from Libya, forbidden under a law designating Libya as a state sponsor of terrorism. Alamoudi has not been formally charged with involvement with Hamas and Al-Qaida, but the government made those allegations in arguing against freeing him on bond. One Virginia charity run by Alamoudi, the Happy Hearts Trust, is alleged to have funded Hamas.
