OUTRAGEOUS! Government Gave Radical Islamist Groups $41 Million of Your Tax Money
New research conducted by the Middle East Forum has discovered that since 2007, the U.S. government has given $41 million of American tax dollars to radical Islamist terror groups.
These terrorist groups had been posing as charities.
According to The Daily Wire,
Alarmingly, however, radical Islamic movements completely control 36% of the Muslim institutions that received government monies, taking 42% of the total funding. A further 36% of the grantees, which received 44% of the funds, operate under varying degrees of radical influence. A mere 14% of identified government funds given to Muslim organizations were directed toward institutions free of Islamist influence.
In total, if the government’s own data is accurate, at least $41 million was given to institutions either controlled or under the partial influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, Jamaat-e-Islami (a violent South Asian Islamist movement), Salafis, Deobandis (a hardline South Asian Sunni sect from which the Taliban was created) and the Iranian regime, among others.
The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), for instance, received over $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for disaster relief work in 2016 and 2018. ICNA is the U.S. representative body of Jamaat-e-Islami, which was recently banned by the Indian government in the Kashmir region because of its involvement with “extremism and militancy in Jammu and Kashmir and elsewhere.”
It is quite certain that the fact that the U.S. government has given various Muslim groups money for contracts and programs is not that big of a deal overall. After all, the government gives money to a long, long list of organizations ranging across all creeds and religions.
But it is very clear that the U.S. government has not taken enough care to properly screen the Islamic groups it has given money to, because according to the analysis of this research, 42 percent of the Islamic groups have direct ties to terror.
There needs to be more thorough vetting being done prior to giving any of these organizations money. That is for certain.
