Mohammad Jaglit is a director of the SAAR Foundation, which the FBI and the U.S. Customs agency believe was established to raise funds and launder money for international terrorist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and al Qaeda. Federal authorities consider Jaglit a key figure in U.S.-based terror-support networks, and his residence has been searched by those authorities. A U.S. Department of Justice affidavit cites Jaglit as “an active supporter of [Sami] Al-Arian and [Palestinian Islamic Jihad], both ideologically and financially,” and notes that letters accompanying checks he sent to Al-Arian from the SAAR Foundation instructed Al-Arian “not to disclose the contribution publicly or to the media.”
In the summer 2007 Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) trial (which looked into evidence of HLF’s fundraising on behalf of Hamas), the U.S. government released a list of approximately 300 of HLF’s “unindicted co-conspirators” and “joint venturers.” Among the unindicted co-conspirators were many individuals affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and/or Hamas, including Mohammad Jaghlit, Omar Ahmad, Abdurahman Alamoudi, Yousef al-Qaradawi, Abdallah Azzam, Jamal Badawi, Mousa Abu Marzook, Abdel Aziz Rantisi, and Ahmed Yassin. The list also included groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Hamas, INFOCOM, the Islamic Association for Palestine, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Arab Youth Association, the United Association for Studies and Research, and the North American Islamic Trust.
