Walid comments on BRIDGES TV discussing the raids on Goodwill Charities and Al-Mabarrat

Feds Raid Two Detroit Area Islamic Charities

July 25, 2007

Detroit- Federal agents raided two Shiite Muslim charities in Dearborn, Michigan on Tuesday, claiming one of them had ties to Iran-backed terrorist groups.

Agents hauled away documents and files from the Goodwill Charitable Organization, which is accused of soliciting money for Hezbollah.

The other charity, Al Mabarrat Charitable Organization frequently holds fundraisers in metro Detroit. The feds say its founder, Hussein Fadlallah, is the spiritual leader of Hezbollah and a terrorist.

Many in the Muslim community are concerned about what has been a sweep of Islamic charities. To address concerns the FBI held a meeting Tuesday night with communtiy leaders at the Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights.

To find out more about these raids we spoke to Dawud Walid, CAIR Detroit Executive Director.
