He is one of 22 activists who were raided by the FBI in 2010 and were subpoenaed and scheduled to be brought before a Grand Jury while having not been charged of anything. He was targeted by the FBI for having made a trip to Palestine and giving aid to a Palestinians women's organization that helps build daycares and kindergartens. To date, none of the activists have been arrested or charged of any wrong doing. Hatem is still battling a case as he has been unable to get his belongings back from the FBI.
