YOU WON'T READ ABOUT IT IN THE NEW YORK TIMES. The Holy Land Foundation trial is a major trial about the use of charities to fund terrorists, but you won't read much about it in the New York Times. To get up to speed on what is going on, you can read the article by Scott Johnson, who focuses on CAIR--which is beginning to feel the heat:

CAIR is, in fact, among the more than 300 unindicted co-conspirators of the Holy Land Foundation named by the government in the Holy Land Foundation prosecution. The trial has already produced evidentiary bombshells detonating along a path leading to CAIR. It has introduced evidence placing CAIR executive director Nihad Awad at the 1993 Philadelphia meeting of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee. FBI agent Lara Burns has testified that CAIR was listed as a member of the Palestine Committee. The evidence introduced at trial is conspicuously missing from the New York Times; the Times isn’t covering the trial. I found reports of the evidence introduced at trial posted on the invaluable Counterterrorism Blog by Steve Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism.
This isn't the first time terrorists are on trial here in the US, but it may be the most important--even if The New York Times doesn't see fit to report it.
