Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, aka Michael Mixon — yet another convert to the Religion of Peaceâ„¢ who misunderstands his new religion? “US loan shark jailed for aiding Afghan terrorists,” from the London Evening Standard, April 20 (thanks to Block Ness):
A New York businessman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for trying to funnel money to a terrorism training camp in Afghanistan.
Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, 57, pleaded guilty in September to terrorism financing. He helped transfer Â£152,000 believing it would help train militants but his accomplice was an undercover agent….
Alishtari, also known as Michael Mixon, thought the money would be used to buy night vision goggles, medical supplies and other equipment. He told the agent to make sure he was “three steps away” from the money to avoid it being traced.
Alishtari donated $20,000 in 2003 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee and more than $15,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee between 2002 and 2004, which the Republican Party election bodies have given to charity.
Grover, is that you?
