A.C.L.U. Report Says Antiterror Fight Undercuts Liberty of Muslim Donors

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has issued a report that claims that the U.S. government's actions in the fight against terrorism "have created a climate of fear that chills American Muslims’ free and full exercise of their religion through charitable giving, or Zakat, one of the “five pillars” of Islam and a religious obligation for all observant Muslims."  The report, entitled "Blocking Faith, Freezing Charity: Chilling Muslim Charitable Giving in the “War on Terrorism Financing." The New York Times'' Stephanie Strom wrote about the new report on Monday, June 15.
