Isn’t it “Islamophobic” even to suggest that mosques may have been financing jihad terror? Will there be an outcry against the Algerian Interior Ministry’s “racism” and “bigotry”?
“Terrorism: Algeria, mosque funds under investigation,” from ANSAmed, August 22 (thanks to Insubria):
(ANSAmed) – TUNIS, AUGUST 22 – Algeria’s interior ministry has opened a probe into the management of money donated to mosques over suspicions it is used for terrorist activities, Arab-language daily el-Khabar reported on Thursday. The newspaper, which publishes well-informed reports on terrorism, said authorities have strong suspicions that zakat – ritual donations which are one of the three ‘pillars’ of Islam – are used to support youths, train and arm them so they can be sent to Syria and Libya to fight as militants.
According to the first results of the investigation, whose conclusions have reportedly not been sent to magistrates yet, a number of charities collected funding to sponsor Islamic terrorism.
