US & Australia criminalize Muslim charity (zakkat) - 65 years for Palestinian Mandela’s aid to orphans

The UK BBC has just reported that the founder members of what was once the biggest Muslim charity in the US have each been jailed for 65 years for giving money to aid the orphans from Israeli killings of Occupied Palestinians.
Shukri Abu Baker, 50, and Ghassan Elashi, 55, were convicted of channelling funds to the Palestinian militant group, Hamas. Three other members of the Holy Land Foundation were jailed for between 15 and 20 years by a Dallas court. The charity was found guilty last year of sending $12m (£7.4m) to fund social programmes controlled by Hamas (see BBC, Hamas backers jailed in Texas”: 27 May, 2009: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas... ; also see “Anti-Arab anti-Semitism. US & Australia make Muslim Charity [zakkat] a Major Crime” on MWC News: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/308... .
According to the BBC: “It was the largest terrorism financing trial since the 9/11 attacks. The indictment against the group said it sponsored Palestinian orphans and families in the West Bank and Gaza whose relatives had died or been imprisoned as a result of Hamas attacks on Israel”.
Similar legislation and similar racist, anti-Arab anti-Semitic and Islamophobic attitudes exist in pro-war, pro-coal, pro-Zionist, war criminal and climate criminal racist White Australia where giving money to help 0.8 million Occupied Palestinian children in what the Catholic Church describes as the Gaza Concentration Camp is punishable by up to life imprisonment because the overwhelmingly democratically-elected Hamas internally administering this huge Prison has been declared a “terrorist organization” (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austra... ).
In contrast, racist White Australia has made it Tax Deductible to give donations to assist the ongoing Apartheid Israeli Palestinian Genocide (0.3 million post-invasion deaths, 0.2 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths, 4 million people in military-guarded West Bank Bantustans or the Gaza Concentration Camp; 7 million refugees) (see “Palestinian Genocide. Apartheid Israel killing Arab infants”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/134... ).
Of course racist White Australia is involved in its own genocidal atrocities for which I have made formal complaint to the International Criminal Court (ICC) - for details see “Formal complaint to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court re Australian Government involvement in Aboriginal Genocide, Iraqi Genocide, Afghan Genocide and Climate Genocide”: http://climateemergency.blogspot.co... - 9,000 Indigenous Australian avoidable deaths annually; post-invasion excess deaths in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories 2.3 million and 3-7 million, respectively, and there are 0.6 million and 2.3 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths, respectively, and 5-6 million and 5 million refugees, respectively; 10 billion people will die this century due to unaddressed man-made global warming with Australia one of the World’s worst per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) polluters (see " Climate Disruption, Climate Emergency, Climate Genocide & Penultimate Bengali Holocaust through Sea Level Rise" http://sites.google.com/site/yarrav....
Under the extreme right wing, pro-war, pro-coal, pro-Zionist Rudd Labor Government of racist Apartheid Australia it is illegal for Indigenous Australians of the Northern Territory of Australia to buy, transport, sell, read or consume things that all other Australians can – Northern Territory Indigenous Australians have been removed in a race-specific way from the protection of the 1975 Racial Discrimination Act and will be kicked out of their homes and Homelands and forbidden to return without any legal recourse if they violate these racist regulations.
Apartheid Israel is a nuclear terrorist rogue state according to Jewish Israeli Professor of International Relations at Oxford University Professor Avi Shlaim: "Israel’s record over the past four decades makes it difficult to resist the conclusion that it has become a rogue state with "an utterly unscrupulous set of leaders". A rogue state habitually violates international law, possesses weapons of mass destruction and practises terrorism - the use of violence against civilians for political purposes. Israel fulfils all of these three criteria; the cap fits and it must wear it. Israel’s real aim is not peaceful coexistence with its Palestinian neighbours but military domination " (see: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/200... ).
According to the latest UNICEF data (see: http://www.unicef.org/infobycountry... ) about 90% of the annual 4,000 Occupied Palestinian under-5 infant deaths are avoidable and due to Israeli war crimes i.e. Apartheid Israel is responsible for the passive murder of about 0.9 x 4,000 = 3,600 under-5 year old Occupied Palestinian infants each year - more than the number of Israelis killed by Palestinians in 60 years (about 2,500 according to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs).
Post-invasion excess deaths of Occupied Palestinian total 0.3 million; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 0.2 million; Palestinian refugees total over 7 million - a Palestinian Genocide as defined by the Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention (for details and documentation see “Palestinian-Israeli Death Ratios. Nazi-style Israeli Gaza War Crimes”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/277... ).
Whatever its faults, Hamas was democratically elected as the government of the Occupied Palestinian Territory by an overwhelming margin in elections held under Apartheid Israeli guns.
The traitorous, dual citizen, racist Zionist Lobby has utterly trashed America’s already severely compromised human rights reputation by securing this 65 year prison sentence for the "crime" providing support for orphans of Palestinians murdered by Apartheid Israel.
Will Obama demand the extradition for trial of the Israeli terrorists who murdered 34 US servicemen and wounded 171 in the 1967 attack on the defenceless USS Liberty in international waters? (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Li... ).
No - because racist Zionist-beholden, pro-war, war criminal, anti-Arab anti-Semitic, Islamophobic US president Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) is too gutless to even defend the human rights of fellow Americans - whether the 200 victims of Israeli terrorism on the USS Liberty or the "Palestinian Mandela" sent to prison for 65 years for giving money to orphans of parents killed by the same racist Zionist terrorists.
No racist Zionist (RZ) obscenity is too great for the pro-Zionist Governments of the Western Murdochracies – they give the racist Zionists (RZs) blank cheque to murder anyone they choose, from defenceless US sailors in 1967 on the USS Liberty in international waters off Gaza to the 1,400 Gazans murdered in January 2009 in reprisals for ZERO (0) Israelis killed by Gaza rockets in the previous year (see: “Palestinian-Israeli death ratios. Nazi-style Israeli Gaza war crimes”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/277... ).
What can decent people do? Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. Decent people must (a) inform others about ongoing racist Zionist, Bush-ite and neo-Bush-ite war crimes against Occupied Indigenous Peoples and (b) act via intra-national and international Sanctions and Boycotts against the people, corporations and countries complicit in these awful racist Zionist, Bush-ite and neo-Bush-ite war crimes against humanity.
The genocidal, war criminal, traitorous racist Zionists (Zs) must be sidelined from public life in the Western Murdochracies as have been other evil racists such as the Nazis, neo-Nazis and the KKK.
