American Suspected of al Qaeda Links Held By Israel

Then released without charges after two weeks. The allegations were that Dr. Khaled Nazem Diab, 34, arrived in Israel on Nov. 14 on a mission for the Qatari Red Crescent and the University of Missouri Trauma Center to train Palestinian social workers. Israel said he was involved with suspected of funneling money to al- Qaida and other unidentified terror groups.

Diab worked with an Islamic charity group, al-Najda, which has been investigated and shut down in the United States, the statement said.

Israel claimed Diab lived in Afghanistan and was in close contact with groups that identify with the Taliban. The statement also said Diab had contacts with activists connected to Hamas, the militant group which has carried out many of the suicide bombings in Israel.

Israel did not provide evidence to support any of the claims.
