“UN bodies receive millions from ‘terror charities’ – opinion” by Jordan Cope at the Jerusalem Post, July 30, 2023.
Four different UN agencies “have partnered with and accepted [millions of dollars] from the terrorism-affiliated NGO Qatar Charity”, which presents itself as a humanitarian organization (https://www.qcharity.org/en/qa)
- “Terrorists Benefit from Qatar’s Goodwill and Charity” by Hussain Abdul-Hussain at Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD), January 30, 2022.
- “Qatari charity on new terror list has ties to USAID, UN”, by Ben Evansky at Fox News, June 20, 2017.
“Qatar Charity” has been sanctioned for links to Islamic terrorism by several Arab countries and remains affiliated with the “Union of Good” umbrella organization that is banned by the U.S. Treasury Department because of funding provided to HAMAS. “Qatar Charity” nevertheless has worked with USAID (US Agency for International Development) and several UN agencies as well. Among those UN agencies is UNRWA (UN Relief & Works Agency), which is closely affiliated with HAMAS, and the UNHCR (UN High Commission on Refugees). Another UN recipient of Qatar Charity funding is the International Organization of Migration (IOM), which is deeply involved with moving illegal aliens across the U.S. southern border.
“U.S. Taxpayers Donated $391K to Terrorist-Defending Imam’s Two Organizaations”, Focus on Western Islamism, July 28, 2023
Almost $400,000 in Massachusetts taxpayer funding was given to Imam Abdullah Faaruuq, an Islamic jihadi, for two of his “charity” groups. Note that there is nothing remotely “Islamist” about Imam Faaruuq: he is a devout, faithful, practicing Muslim.
“Biden Regime Lied to Senators About Iran Envoy Under FBI Investigation”, by Daniel Greenfield at Jihad Watch, July 16, 2023.
This is the curious story of Robert Malley, former Biden administration envoy for the Iran nuclear talks. It is still not clear why he lost his security clearance or was relieved of his position because neither the U.S. Department of State nor the FBI has clarified publicly what “mishandling of classified information” actually means in his case. Suffice to say, however, that Malley long has been known as sympathetic to the Islamic Republic of Iran’s jihadist regime and earlier, during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, Malley was dropped from his advisory position there due to overly close relationships with HAMAS.
“Iraq pays billions to Iran after US waives sanctions that prohibited such payments”, by Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch, June 25, 2023.
Another Iran-linked story that illustrates yet one more method by which the U.S. Government favors the Islamic Republic of Iran’s regime. Here, we have an example of the USG waiving mandatory sanctions that previously prohibited Iraq from paying Iran for natural gas imports.
“Muslims Sue FBI for Religious Discrimination, Feds Base Their Defense on ‘Secret Evidence’” by Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch, June 12, 2023.
- “FBI Claims Secret Evidence Trumps Religious Discrimination Charges in Domestic Spying Case”, by Sanya Mansoor at Yahoo News/TIME, June 8, 2023.
These two stories deal with the offended feelings of some Muslims from mosques in Southern California which were infiltrated by an FBI informant in the mid-2000s. Now plaintiffs from the mosques, in collusion with the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) and Muslim Brotherhood-HAMAS-linked CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), are suing the FBI, claiming religious discrimination.
“Ignored several times already, designated terrorist group CAIR again is demanding the US Congress appoint Special Envoy to monitor and combat so-called “Islamophobia” around the world, no less”, Bare Naked Islam, July 9, 2023.
CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), the U.S. branch of terror-designated HAMAS, is squawking again to get Congress to appoint an official U.S. Special Envoy for “Islamophobia”.
“Biden, Whose Regime Includes Terrorists, Blasts Israeli Government as ‘Extreme’”, by Daniel Greenfield at Jihad Watch, July 11, 2023.
- “A Gitmo Terror Lawyer Who Threw Stones at Israel Goes to the White House” by Daniel Greenfield at Jihad Watch, June 12, 2023.
- “Anti-America/Anti-Israel Guantánamo Bay Muslim terrorist lawyer, Ramzi Kassan, is now serving as Joe Biden’s ‘Senior Policy Advisor for Immigration’”, Bare Naked Islam, June 11, 2023.
These last three articles highlight the presence of senior officials in the Biden administration whose profiles raise questions about their suitability for either the positions or the security clearances they hold. The Biden administration includes a number of high-ranking officials whose anti-Israel animus permeates White House policy. Ramzi Kassem, a Syrian national who grew up in Lebanon, Iraq, and other Islamic terror states, is one of them. He serves as a Senior Policy Advisor for Immigration at the White House Domestic Policy Council.
