A little progress

The AP reports, "Mosque Founder Ordered Deported From U.S."

A leading fund-raiser for an Islamic charity with alleged links to the Palestinian militant group Hamas was ordered deported Tuesday.

An immigration judge ruled that Abdel-Jabbar Hamdan, 44, should have known that his work for the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development provided support for the group.

``Our laws prohibit aliens who are living here as our guests to use this country as a base to advocate terrorism or raise money for terrorist causes,'' said John Salter, Los Angeles chief counsel for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Hopefully we'll see more cases like this one. These terror-charities have got to go.
