MUSLIM CHARITY FOUNDER GETS JAIL FOR LYING TO FBI: "The founder of a Muslim charity was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court to a year in prison and fined $10,000 for lying to an FBI agent when he denied traveling to Afghanistan in 1994-1995. In sentencing Emadeddin Z. Muntasser, former president of Care International Inc., a defunct Boston charity, Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV doubled the maximum amount of prison time and the fine called for under the federal advisory sentencing guidelines. . . . Islam had been brought into the trial numerous times, Judge Saylor noted, but there are millions of Muslims who do not support violence."
