Islamic Group Raises $238,634 Following Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting – $155,000 Went to Local Mosque, Only $10,000 Went to Synagogue

The Islamic group “Celebrate Mercy” raised over $238,000 for the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh after a crazed anti-Semite and Trump-hater murdered 11 Jews during a Saturday morning service in October.
** $10,000 went to the Jewish Synagogue.
** $155,000 Went to the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh.
** It’s not clear what happened to the rest.

COnservatrive Review reported:

According to the left-wing The Forward, the Islamic group Celebrate Mercy has already funneled $155,000 — of over $238,634 that was raised supposedly for the victims of the shooting and the greater Jewish community of Pittsburgh — into the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh. Though the Forward article states that a document was posted signed by a representative of Celebrate Mercy, the director of the Islamic Center, and a “Tree of Life representative detailing exactly how the funds will be distributed to victims and their families,” the link to the document is dead.

As for the remaining $83,634, raised above the fundraiser’s $150,000 goal, it will go toward the vague goal of “projects that help foster Muslim-Jewish collaboration, dialogue, and solidarity,” Celebrate Mercy director Tarek El-Messidi told The Forward.
