Holy Land Foundation convicted in retrial

Jurors in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas have convicted the Holy Land Foundation of financing 'Palestinian' terrorism in a retrial that ended in a Dallas courtroom today (Hat Tip: Shug via Little Green Footballs).
Jurors have convicted a Muslim charity and five of its former leaders of all 108 charges in the largest terrorism financing trial since the Sept. 11 attacks.

The verdict was announced Monday afternoon, on the eighth day of deliberations in the retrial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. It was once the nation's largest Muslim charity.

Holy Land is accused of giving more than $12 million to support the Palestinian militant group Hamas. The group was designated by the government as a terrorist organization in 1995.
As some of you may recall, the Holy Land Foundation is allegedly connected to CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations. CAIR itself was served a summons for fraud and criminal racketeering on Sunday.

I wonder how this outcome will affect the retrial of Holy Land Foundation officials accused of financing the murder of 17-year old American immigrant to Israel David Boim, and the lawsuit filed last month by Holy Land Foundation progeny KindHearts for Charitable Humanitarian Development.
