From the book jacket:
"In July 2004, federal agents raided the homes of five Palestinian-American families, arresting the five dads. The first trial of the "Holy Land Foundation Five" ended in a hung jury. The second, marked by highly questionable procedures, resulted in very lengthy sentence – for "supporting terrorism" by donating to charities with whom the U.S. government itself and several respected international agencies had long worked."
A free-will offering will be received.
