Hamas-Linked Man Removed From Treasury Dept. Terrorist List

11/09/2012

The U.S. Treasury Department removed from its designated terrorist list a Chicago man who was convicted in Israel of assisting Hamas.

Muhammad Salah, 59, who spent 4 1/2 years in an Israeli prison for funding the terrorist organization, was taken off the list on Wednesday by the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control. The designation had meant that Salah could not get a job or make simple purchases without the department's permission.
