When he gained citizenship in the first place, did anyone attempt to determine what he thought about jihad? Unlikely in the extreme: that would have been “Islamophobic.”
“Feds seek citizenship of man who violated Iraq sanctions,” Associated Press, February 8, 2018 (thanks to Robert):
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Department of Justice is seeking to revoke the citizenship of the former leader of a Missouri-based organization that illegally funneled money to Iraq.
The federal agency filed a complaint Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, seeking to revoke the naturalization of Mubarak Hamed, once the director of the Islamic American Relief Agency, which posed as a charity that assisted famine victims in Africa. The organization collected $1 million to $3 million in contributions each year from 1991 to 2003.
According to the complaint, Hamed regularly transferred funds from the organization to an account in Jordan controlled by a man who transferred the money, or goods bought with the funds, to Iraq, which violated U.S. sanctions against that country.
IARA, based in Columbia, Missouri, was the U.S. office of the Sudan-based Islamic Relief Agency. It secretly funneled a total of about $1.4 million to Iraq, the department said.
The U.S. group was dissolved in 2004, after the government deemed it a terrorist organization. At the time, the organization was ordered to transfer more than $800,000 in assets to a charity that assists farmers and drought victims in East Africa.
Hamed, a native of Sudan, pleaded guilty to conspiracy, lying to federal agents and misusing the tax-exempt status given to charities. He served nearly five years in prison before being released in August 2016….
