Three Ways to Tell if a Muslim Charity Supports Jihad

Pages: 1 2

The Chicago-based Zakat Foundation of America, a 501©3 non-profit, was founded in 2001, and presents itself in a benevolent light:

Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) is an international charity organization that helps generous and caring people reach out to those in need. Our goal is to address immediate needs and ensure the self-reliance of the poorest people around the world with Zakat and Sadaqa [acts of worship] dollars of privileged Muslims and the support of other generous donors.

Does the Zakat Foundation of America merely help, in an innocent charitable way, “the poorest people” or is it a front for jihad? Part of the answer comes in the identity of the Muslim thinkers the foundation promotes. Chief among them is Yusuf al-Qardawi, spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood who in 2009 declared his hope that before his death, even if he was wheelchair-bound, he would be able to “shoot Allah’s enemies, the Jews, and they will throw a bomb at me, and thus, I will seal my life with martyrdom.”

Another answer comes in the organizations with which the charity is associated. A number of organizations in the United States have already been identified as Muslim Brotherhood front groups by the FBI. The Zakat Foundation of America works with at least two of the 29 groups the bureau has specified as falling into this category—the Islamic Center of North America (ISNA) endorsed the Zakat Foundation as an organization with “a strong history of immediate and effective responses to national and international disasters” and featured in several of the Zakat Foundation promotional videos. The other Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated group the Zakat Foundation collaborates with is the Muslim Students Association (MSA), having designed printed material guiding MSA activists on “How to start a successful halaqa group in your Masjid,” “How to Help Neighbors in Need,” and “Starting a Food Pantry.”

    You are over thinking this. The sure fire way to identify if a muslim charity is funding jihad is simply that it is a muslim charity. That is what they exist to do, and what they have always existed to do. It is the nature of the beast.

    The one's that seem to be clean just haven't been exposed yet.

    • old white guy

      yep. the koran is a dead giveaway, no pun intended.

  • mikidiki

    The certain way to decide if a Muslim charity is clean is to ask President Obama … he will give the wrong answer as the correct one!


    All muslims are potential terrorists!!!

      YOSHIRO SAGAMORI once wrote in the Jerusalem Post :


      Why beat aroud the bushes ??

      To all those believers in "MODERATE" Muslims like our "pseudointellectuals"
      I would ask :

      Could we ask OBAMA about ???

  • davarino

    29 Groups? Holy Cow I didnt realize there were 29 terrorist/funding groups in America. We really are in trouble.

    IF they don't NOW support jihad they will eventually. They cannot be a true Islamic society if they don't practice jihad, in whatever form is demanded. Hey, not my words, it is their Qur'an. So for those that think there are "Moderate Muslims" I say, probably but they have no legitimate voice or revised Qur'an that abrogates what exists now. Therefore, all we can go on is what is before us. Every single Muslim is demanded to fight against every non-Muslim and do WHATEVER it takes to advance Islam (jihad). We should take them at their word on this.

    Thankfully people are starting to wake-up to the basics of the "peaceful" religion. World wide Muslim domination IS THE POINT. I have read many Muslim experts who tell us that lying to an infidel – most of us – is not just permitted, but required, if it's for the protection and advancement of their religion. Whatever it takes for Muslim dominance, MEANS whatever it takes. I'm surprised that so many Muslim experts have published this information, and so many liberals have ignored it – at our expense.

  • Renee Rogers-Perry

    World wide domination is what they live for! No more, no less. You are either with them or against them. With them meaning becoming a Muslim!

  • effemall

    One way or another, they must be eliminated in America and that can't begun while they have their protector in the White House. There for he must be thrown out first.

  • Sound&Fury

    I've noticed signs posted in the storefronts of restaurants like Subway & KFC now claiming Zakat food served in their stores. Is this what we're coming to in the US?

  • palidin 911

    There's no such thing as Muslim charity, unless you re-define the word to mean Jihad.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    We should give them no peace and do everything we can to be a stumbling block
    to their nefarious plans while preparing to eject them from our society where there
    is no place for the subversive and murderous cult……………If you see the Muslim
    you see the enemy of all that is good and those who would make you a slave or

    Simply put, there are no moderate muslims. If they're not shooting at you, bombing you, cutting your throat, they are contributing to those that do and working our system to impose stealthy Shirah law in the US and world-wide. Islam is not a religion but a sick political, militaristic, philosophy with one goal only, to take over , dominate, and enslave the entire world. They use our laws, our courts ,exploit our weakness and naivety as a fair-minded people, greatly increased birth rates, force changes in our legal system, etc. to slowly gain majority and control.

      You must have been to a Walid Shoebat meeting!

  • Jaladhi

    It is a given that all Muslim charities support jihad and therefore they contribute to support jihadi terrorists!!! Don't how much of the money they collect goes to jihadis but more than 50% is a good guess. The general Muslim population that contributes to these charities has no problem with this since all Muslims support jihad, that being one and foremost requirement of Muslims. In Muslim mind jihad is holy and if it is violent then so be it. They do not consider it to be terrorism. They are only fulfilling Mo/allah's wishes and orders to them!!

    Islam is the only religion that gives importance to charity, whereas all the rest don't care and waste money on useless things no wonder America takes all the money.
    Islam is the only religion where people follow it with their heart and with discipline. This world is a test for us.
    How the hell can you call muslim terrorists when its a religion of Peace.. people are so stereotypical. A true muslim is peaceful and us muslims we don't stay out all night drinking alcohol and getting drunk.

    Islamic zakat or "charity" is acutally very different from Western ones. Western charities are expected to be seperated from the combatans' effeorts. "zakat" may be given to the jiahd warriors and only to Muslims. while a small amount of Islamic charity goes to real charity (diseaster relief, helping general poverty, etc.) msot goes to jihad and contrusting mosques and maddrasses.
