Hamas On Trial In Chicago

A reminder of terrorism in our midst -- "Hamas-trial secrecy bid":

Federal prosecutors requested Friday that Israeli intelligence agents be permitted to testify under official aliases and outside the presence of the public in the upcoming trial of a Bridegview man accused of aiding the terrorist group Hamas.


Muhammad Salah of Bridgeview and Abdelhaleem Ashqar are scheduled to face charges in October that they funneled money to the Palestinian terror group Hamas.

A third man charged in the case is a fugitive believed to be living in Syria.

Here's some background on the case.
