Report: British Islamic Charity Accused of Funding Boko Haram Terrorists

The Nigerian based Boko Haram Islamist group is responsible for over 900 deaths.

Members of the Islamic sect, Boko Haram claimed responsibility for the 2011 Christmas day bomb blasts in Madalla, Niger State and Jos, the plateau state capital, that left 28 people dead. (Nigeria A-Z)

Now there is a report that a British Islamic charity is funding Boko Haram.
Al Ahram reported:

The UK authorities are looking into an alleged possible link between a British charity organization and the Nigerian Boko Haram extremist Islamist group.

The UK Charity Commission (CC) has confirmed, for the first time, that it is talking to different departments, regarding allegations that Al Muntada Al Islami Trust is providing financial support to the Boko Haram group.

“We confirm we have been contacted by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and the Metropolitan Police (MP) in relation to this matter,” the CC spokesperson told Ahram Online.

This confirmation reflects the UK authorities’ growing concern about possible relations between London-registered charities and Islamic extremism.
However, she added, that her organization is not investigating the charity Al Muntada Al Islami Trust.

The CC is very keen not to give an impression that there is no legal or formal investigation on the charity’s behaviour.

“We are engaging with the charity’s trustees”, the spokesperson said.

She confirmed that the trustees of Al Muntada Al Islami Trust “have and continue to fully cooperate with us.”

Ahram Online understands that the MP and the FCO are concerned about previous media reports linking Al Mundtada Al Islami Trust and Boko Haram.
The group’s name means “the education is forbidden” and is seen in Europe as an Al-Qaeda-affiliated group.

    Zakat and Terrorsim

    [President Obama’s new Muslim Outreach
    Partner’s connections to Terror Financing.

    The Obama DOJ has reached out to one of the HLF unindicted co-conspirators, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) to become its main connection to the American Muslim community. In effect, the DOJ was replacing one unindicted co-conspirator, CAIR, with another, the ISNA. An FBI representative met with a Vice President of the ISNA recently. This has raised internal dissension with regard to recruitment of representatives for the DOJ’s booth at the annual convention of the ISNA to be held in Washington, DC this summer. Patrick Poole in a Pajamas media article, “A Closer Look at Obama’s Islamic Partners,” has identified several actions by ISNA leaders engaged in funneling Zakat funds for Jihad.

    Thomas Jocelyn of the Weekly Standard observed that ISNA’s name has come up in a current German terror finance investigation. It is believed that the Islamic group had donated $100,000 to the Third World Relief Agency at the very same time that TWRA was funding the terror network behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
    The Bush administration came under fire after ISNA official Muzzamil Siddiqi and other known supporters of Islamic terrorism appeared with Bush at a prayer service just three days after the 9/11 attacks. One of those leaders, Abdurahman Alamoudi, was later convicted on terrorism support charges and is serving a 23-year federal prison sentence. Alamoudi was identified in 2005 by the Treasury Department as the top al-Qaeda financier in the U.S.

    According to Steve Emerson in his New York Times bestselling book, Jihad Incorporated, ISNA was also responsible for providing $170,000 in start-up cash for the Islamic African Relief Agency (IARA). The U.S. Treasury Department designated IARA as a global terror finance entity in 2004 for providing direct support to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, and Hamas.

    The connections between Zakat and support for Jihad are ancient and run deep in the Muslim World. Complaints from the ACLU and American Muslim community attempt to view the various surveillance and asset seizures as an invasion of religious freedom. In reality, these complaints are a thinly disguised attempt to overturn the counterterrorism finance laws that have been a bulwark since 9/11. The Obama Administration’s outreach to Muslim Brotherhood fronts like the ISNA raises serious questions about what the intent is of these “New Beginnings.” The alternative of a government issued ‘white list’ of eligible Muslim charities is not in the best interests of legitimate religious and NGO charities. Some have suggested, what is needed is a so-called ‘gray list’ that would allow Muslims and others to forward anonymous complaints for posting on a website to track instances that might violate US counterterrorism finance laws and executive orders. For, after all, it is for the Muslims to rein in extremism across the ummah as President Obama said in his Cairo speech. What better way than to exclude Jihadi purposes from the obligation to perform Zakat.]

    Barry Dunham Soetoro Barack Hussein Obama ~

    “I’m committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that
    they can fulfill Zakat [.] it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit”

    Rights activists say she’s been dancing
    with African dictators since the ’90s.

    [The long conflict in Congo has sometimes been called “Africa’s World
    War,” because it has led to a staggering 5.4 million deaths — far more
    than any war anywhere since World War II. Throughout it, Kagame has
    appeared to play a clever game of pretending to intervene to impose
    peace and deliver Western-friendly policies, while in fact carving out a
    sphere of influence by which he can control parts of Congo’s mineral

    UN Amb Susan Rice Advised Former Pres Clinton to rebuff
    Sudan’s offer to Turn OBL Over To The US ,is Anti-Israel,
    & ProUN & Redistribution of US$! November 26, 2012 ….

    [“In 1996 Rice helped persuade President Clinton to rebuff Sudan’s offer to
    turn Osama bin Laden, who was then living there, over to U.S. authorities.
    Rice reasoned that because Sudan had a poor human-rights record, the U.S.
    should have no dealings with that nation’s government – not even to obtain
    custody of the al Qaeda leader or to receive intelligence information on
    terrorists from Sudanese authorities. Bin Laden subsequently moved his
    terrorist operations to Afghanistan, from where he would mastermind the
    9/11 attacks.”
