Jewish groups applauded a final version of anti-terrorism legislation that increases the authority of law enforcement officials to combat terrorism. The bill, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday, calls for wiretapping suspected terrorists, sharing intelligence information about them, tracking their Internet movements and prosecuting those who knowingly harbor terrorists. The bill now goes to the U.S. Senate for approval.
