Muslim advocates on tour

November 27, 2008

Two members of a Muslim advocacy group implicated in a trial of Hamas funders were due to begin a speaking tour in Scotland this week.

Yaser Tabbara and Ahmed Rehab are members of the Council on American-Islamic Relations which was listed as an "unindicted co-conspirator" in a trial which found the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation, and five of its former leaders, guilty of funding Hamas to the tune of more than $12 million (£7.8m).

Mr Tabbara, CAIR's community development director, and Mr Rehab, strategic communications director, were due to speak at a Scottish Islamic Foundation's lecture series, which began on Wednesday. They are due to appear at SIF's Scottish Muslim Futures conference on Sunday.
