ADL seeks probe of U.S. group linked to Hamas

WASHINGTON — The Anti-Defamation League is urging the Justice Department to investigate whether a U.S.-based group is raising money for Hamas.
Viva Palestina U.S. is a campaign modeled after a similar European initiative, led by British Parliament member George Galloway, which delivered money and a convoy of vehicles to Hamas representatives in Gaza in March. Galloway plans to lead a similar Viva Palestina U.S.-sponsored convoy next month, and he has been visiting the United States recently to publicize and raise funds for it.
In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, ADL said “it is not verifiable that this ‘committee’ will function independently of the Hamas leadership in Gaza, and Galloway — who plans to lead the American convoy — has already demonstrated his willingness to directly support Hamas.”
