AUG. 4, 2004: ALAMOUDI'S PLEA by David Frum

"See, if you haven’t yet, Daniel Pipes’ extremely interesting article about Abdurahman Alamoudi’s guilty plea on terrorism charges.

Alamoudi, founder of the American Muslim Council, was for a time a considerable Washington power broker: a donor to presidential campaigns, a man received at the White House. He has now confessed to illegally taking money from Libya to organize an assassination attempt on Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah.

Pipes’ conclusion:

“Alamoudi is hardly the only high-profile, seemingly non-violent leader of an Islamist organization to associate with terrorists. At the Council on American-Islamic Relations, five staffers and board members have been accused or convicted of terrorism-related charges and the same has happened with leaders of the Islamic Center of Greater Cleveland, Holy Land Foundation, Benevolence International Foundation, and the National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom"
