A MUSLIM "charity" organization in the U.S. has been raising money and sending it to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaida, the Taliban and Hamas. The U.S. charity was a branch of a global "charity" network called Islamic American Relief Agency (IARA). The Executive Director of the U.S. branch, Mubarak Hamed has been arrested, and last Friday he pleaded guilty to these charges.
As a charity, IARA took in between $1 million and $3 million in contributions annually from 1991 to 2003. It also received funds from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
Also involved in this case is a former U.S. congressman who was bribed to erase IARA's name from a U.S. Senate Finance Committee list of "charities that supported terrorists."
Ibrahim Khaleel, the educational director of IARA, created a program to teach public school teachers how to accomodate the special needs of Muslim students. Khaleel wrote a long article for the Muslim American Society's online magazine about the public school program entitled: "The Muslim Student in the Public Schools." The article begins like this: "Allah has obligated us to spread his words."
The former congressmen (Mark Deli Siljander) was a congressman from Michigan (no doubt voted in by the large Muslim population there), and he's the author of the book, A Deadly Misunderstanding: A Congressman's Quest to Bridge the Muslim-Christian Divide.
This is all classic stealth jihad. What did these men accomplish? They convinced Americans to donate money (and they deceived USAID into donating money to them "for humanitarian purposes") and they sent the money to Islamic supremacists, helping to make it possible for Jihadis to kill and demoralize those who are opposing Islamic domination in Iraq and Afghanistan. They infiltrated the government in an attempt to prevent government scrutiny. They worked to gain special accomodation to Muslims in the school district. And all the while they presented a positive, uplifting, comforting face of Islam as a charitable religion that is willing to conduct "dialog" with other religions and work toward peace.
To avoid the backlash that occurs from violence committed against non-Muslims, Islamic supremacist organizations in America and Europe have embarked on a less visible form of jihad, working to alter non-Muslim beliefs, to disarm and silence their detractors, and to gain one concession to Islam after another.
There is only one thing that can stop this relentless, propagandizing, stealthy infiltration from ultimately succeeding: An informed, Islam-savvy population. And that is up to us. We can't rely on someone else to do this for us.
