US charges six with aiding Pakistani Taliban

The six are accused of conspiring to provide material support to a conspiracy to murder, injure and kidnap people abroad and conspiring to provide support to a terrorist organisation, the Pakistani Taliban.

But Ikram Khan, another son of Hafiz Khan, said his father was too old and unwell to be involved in a plot.

"None of my family supports the Taliban. We support this country,"

Yeah,Yeah,Yeah, we have heard it all before, And Islam is the Religion of Peace.

So again we have Muslims in America, Imams no less, suporting terrorists.
When all we hear is how Muslims in America do not do these kinds of things.
But there you go.
Taqiyya( the Islamic art of Lying ) is also practiced by Muslims.
So what are you going to believe?

Authorities in the US have charged six people with providing financial support to the Pakistani Taliban.

Three are US citizens, including two imams at Florida mosques, while three are at large in Pakistan.

The news comes amid heightened tension in relations between Pakistan and the US following the US raid that killed al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.

The four-count indictment against the six people was announced by Wifredo Ferrer - US attorney for the Southern District of Florida - and local FBI agents.

The indictment mentions financial transfers of $50,000 (£30,000) but Mr Ferrer said evidence suggested this was "the tip of the iceberg".

The three Florida citizens were named as Hafiz Khan, 76, and his sons Irfan Khan, 37, and Izhar Khan, 24.

Hafiz Khan is the imam at the Flagler Mosque in Miami, while Izhar Khan is the imam at the Jamaat al-Mumineen Mosque in nearby Margate. Officials said their mosques were not suspected of wrongdoing.

Ali Rehman, Alam Zeb and Amina Khan, who live in Pakistan, were also charged.
