Three members of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group were indicted in Jerusalem three weeks ago, when a gag order had been clamped on the case. It was released for publication Monday that the suspects, including Mahmoud Arnout, a senior member of the Brotherhood in Jerusalem, funneled money for offices of the terrorist group.

He and two co-members also were charged with developing a project for 300 residential units, one-third of them for the Muslim Brotherhood, in the Jabel Mukabar neighborhood in Jerusalem.

They operated under the name of the Muslim chairty name Dawah to establish a terrorist cell to help Arabs whose houses faced demolition after having been built illegally in the city. Arnout also transferred $50,000 for renting offices for the Brotherhood and was in the process of obtaining more money from terrorists outside the country when he and his cell were arrested.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm in Israel is the Islamic Movement, whose leader Sheikh Raad Salah has been arrested numerous times for incitement.
