Great news - Hamas funder sent to prison....

Thank God he wasn't charged here in Canada...he'd be out in no time...
A founding member of what was once the biggest Muslim charity in the US has been given a 65-year jail sentence.

Shukri Abu Baker, 50, was convicted of assisting the Palestinian militant group, Hamas, which the US lists as a terrorist organisation.

He is the first of five people from the Holy Land Foundation to be sentenced.

The charity was found guilty last year of sending more than $12m (£7.4m) to fund schools and social welfare programmes controlled by Hamas.

The five men were convicted in November on charges ranging from money laundering to supporting terrorism.
