Investigating the Mosque Foundation

• Views: 1,429

Bridgeview Illinois is the headquarters of SoundVision.com, and also home to one of the largest mosques in the Chicago area, the Mosque Foundation—an Islamic center that is now under a large-scale investigation for its alleged ties to terrorist financing: U.S. Investigating Mosque Foundation. (Hat tip: fiery celt.)

Federal authorities are investigating the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview and its leaders for possible involvement in terror-related money laundering.

The house of worship, one of the largest Islamic centers in the Chicago area, has been under FBI surveillance for years, the Daily Southtown has learned.

A decade-old federal investigation, a landmark lawsuit filed three years ago and the government crackdown on Muslim charities after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks have served expose a complex web of small businesses and charitable associations accused of funneling money to Palestinian terrorist groups.

Federal agents, once discouraged from launching criminal inquiries into some terror-funding sources, now are nearing a critical stage in their probe into the heart of the Islamic community in and around Bridgeview.

One source familiar with the investigation said indictments could come by the end of the year.

Read the article for the full story. Here are some of the groups connected with the Mosque Foundation:

Islamic Assn. for Palestine
American Middle Eastern League for Palestine
Quranic Literacy Institute
North American Islamic Trust
American Muslim Society
Holy Land Foundation
Islamic Society of North America
