$270k Taxpayer Money to go to Islamic Group: Supporters of Hamas
Islamic Relief Worldwide is an Islamic “charity” that has been repeatedly linked to financing terrorism, Hamas, and the Muslim Brotherhood.
So-called “Islamic charities” are Muslims favored vehicles for financing their preferred terrorist organizations. For example, a group called the Holy Land Foundation was found in federal court to be a “charity” that financed Islamic terrorism. The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was determined to be an unindicted co-conspirator in that case. For some reason the Department of Justice chose not to indict them in that case.
CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood have a long history of terrorist activities and the Islamic Relief Worldwide organization is part of their network. Here’s Megan Kelly talking about these organizations and their terrorist connections.
In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, Barack Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services handed over $270,000 in grant funds to Islamic Relief Worldwide last week. The grant was to ostensibly provide health services in Kenya.
Terrorism experts expect much, if not all, of this money to go directly to funding terrorism through Hamas.
The United Arab Emirates considers Islamic Relief Worldwide to be a terrorist organization. An investigation of their books by the Gatestone Institute shows that the “charity” routinely partners with organizations linked to terrorism and their trustees are affiliated with Islamic terrorist organizations including Al Qaeda.
There’s no limit the Obama administration won’t go to fund organizations that are enemies of the American people and Western culture.
The Department of Health and Human Services refused to comment on this grant.
