US FUNDS ISLAMIC TERRORISTS – by Mustang (For an update on my Irma Status, see previous post)
Robert Louis Stevenson once told us, “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.” It sounds like good advice … and perhaps also, a variation of “You reap what you sow.”
We Americans do not appear to be very efficient at sowing seeds—and I say this because over the past fifty or so years, we are reaping nothing by foolishness; some of this folly very dangerous to the interests of our citizens.
Case in point. We seem to have plenty of time engaging in heated discussions about white supremacists and neo-Nazi anti-fascists (a contradiction in terms if ever I heard one), but no time at all to consider US federal funding earmarked for charity fronted terrorist groups. The group I refer to is Islamic Relief (IR); it is the largest Islamist charity in the western world with dozens of branches across the globe. IR officials have dined at the White House, received awards from the British head of state, and has enjoyed receiving literally millions of dollars from western governments —include our own. The conundrum is this: IR does provide charitable resources in areas where they are most needed, but it is also a major promoter of hatred and violence against anyone who is not an insane Islamacist.
Wondering now, what is so difficult to figure out? Branded as a terrorist front organization by the United Arab Emirates in 2015, because of its ties to the Moslem Brotherhood and Hamas, IR was also condemned by the banking giant HSBC, which closed IR accounts in 2016. Then, a year later, Germany’s federal court initiated an investigation into IR alleging misuse of aid money. Earlier this year, the British joined the bandwagon by opening an investigation to inquire into the circumstances of its association with an extremist American Imam by the name of Yasir Qadhi, who urged Islamacists to kill all homosexuals.
You can read the story here. My question, shouldn’t we all be writing letters to the Attorney General asking him to shut this organization down, or to members of congress demanding that they stop funding terrorists in the United States, or refusing to buy any products from American companies that support the Silicon Valley Community Foundation? Just asking …
