May 14, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - According to a DOJ announcement [see, http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2011/May/11-nsd-621.html] six individuals, including residents of Florida, but all hailing originally from Pakistan, have been charged with providing financing and other material support to the Pakistani Taliban, a designated foreign terrorist organization.
"The four-count indictment charges Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan (hereafter "Khan"), 76, a U.S. citizen and resident of Miami; his son Irfan Khan, 37, a U.S. citizen and resident of Miami; and one of his other sons, Izhar Khan, 24, a U.S. citizen and resident of North Lauderdale, Fla. Three other individuals residing in Pakistan, Ali Rehman, aka "Faisal Ali Rehman;" Alam Zeb; and Amina Khan, aka "Amina Bibi," are also charged in the indictment. Amina Khan is the daughter of Khan and her son, Alam Zeb, is Khan's grandson." [source, DOJ]
Of particular note, two of those charged are local imams, "Hafiz Khan is the Imam at the Miami Mosque, also known as the Flagler Mosque, in Miami. His son, Izhar Khan, is an Imam at the Jamaat Al-Mu'mineen Mosque in Margate, Fla."
Befitting the perverse multiculturalism running amok at Holder's DOJ, the department's press release included the following lunatic statement, "Let me be clear that this is not an indictment against a particular community or religion. Instead, today's indictment charges six individuals for promoting terror and violence through their financial and other support of the Pakistani Taliban. Radical extremists know no boundaries; they come in all shapes and sizes and are not limited by religion, age or geography."
Sure guys, these jihadis have nothing in common at all and the fact that they just happened to be Pak Muslims and two of them leaders of Islamic religious congregations is purely coincidental.
DOJ also went out of its way to assure the local Muslim population that though the leaders of these two mosques are facing very serious terror charges, the mosque operations are being held entirely blameless.
