Nova Southeastern University is hosting a fundraising concert tomorrow for an Islamic charity that has reportedly been under investigation for accepting a contribution from a front group for Al-Qaida and is connected to several organizations that support terrorism.
Pending performers include a vocal supporter of the terrorist group Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.
The Islamic Relief, in conjunction with the Medina Foundation/Islamic Foundation of Central Florida, is holding the concert to benefit “Islamic Relief orphans” at NSU’s Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Guests are invited to enjoy “an evening filled with Hamd (praise) and Dhikr (remembrance) of Allah Most High, His Last Messenger (peace be upon him), and His Deen (Islam). Among the most popular and loved artists from the UK and U.S. will be here in South Florida for the first time ever.”
The Islamic Relief, headquartered in Burbank, Calif., has come under repeated fire in the U.S. and Britain.
In her book “Invasion,” syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin reports the Islamic Relief accepted $50,000 from an alleged bin Laden front-group at its UK office.
“Data from the United States Department of Labor reveals that four Muslim charities under federal investigation for ties to terrorism applied for high tech, or H1-B visas, on behalf of at least sixteen workers over the past years. Three of the charities … had their assets frozen by the Treasury Department after the September 11 attacks. The fourth, Islamic Relief Worldwide in Burbank, California, accepted $50,000 from an alleged bin Laden front group at its British office, according to Treasury officials,” wrote Malkin.
There is much more. Read it all.
