Terrorism Financing

The most popular means for terrorist groups to raise and transmit  funds in the United States are charitable and nongovernmental  organizations. Some charities have been abused by terrorists, who have  redirected money meant for humanitarian purposes to terrorism. For  example, Hamas, the Palestinian militant organization, used the Holy  Land Foundation, a US charity organization, to fund its terrorist  activities.
