Charities face ‘deadly’ threat from Islamic State

Charities are facing a “deadly” and growing threat from terrorist groups, a government watchdog has warned.

There are increasing fears that extremists are infiltrating Muslim charities in Britain in order to promote violence, recruit vulnerable young people for jihad, and steal money to fund terrorism.

The Charity Commission warned that some aid workers who travelled to help victims of the conflict in Syria and Iraq have been recruited by terrorist groups, while other charities have seen their goods stolen and staff kidnapped.

    I have stopped funding ME charities some time ago due to suspicions that something like this was going on. in addition to outright theft and kidnapping ,I believe that many charities are proactive in supporting terrorism like doctors with out borders. and all UN sanctioned NGOs.

      I think it more likely that the charities where set up to fund ME terror rather than hijacked from within.

        I used to be quite active in the Anglican Church and complained constantly about donating Church money to Kairos a terror supporting group, it was only after Kairos lost their charitable status due to this kind of activity that the donations stopped. That was a well established charity that was simply hijacked by progressives.

          Not saying it doesn’t happen, just saying I suspect a lot of the ones funding terror wete set up that way on purpose.

            include most eco-fascist charities too on that basis, I wonder if our child-like emperor will stop CRAs probe into percentage political activities violations among those charities

            I’m seeing evidence of a CRA becoming aggressive and politicalized.

    One eighth of the zakat is obliged to be used for the upkeep of allah’s jihadists. So start by stripping away the charitable status of every single mosque. Why do we allow our tax system to be used to support terrorists?

    Attempting to determine which Muslim charities are bona fide would be a full time job for the IRS.

    There is no charity in pisslam. It’s all a front for jihad. As for non koranimals that send money and people to aid and abet the enemy, I wish them a slow, painful beheading.
