The Obama regime has awarded a grant of taxpayer money — our money, not his — to an Islamic charity that is so abhorrent that both the United Arab Emirates and Israel have literally made the charity illegal due to its documented ties to radical Islamic terrorism.
The Washington Free Beacon reported on Wednesday that the funds are going directly to Kenya, where he has a long history and deep roots, including family who still live there.
The Obama administration has awarded $270,000 to an Islamic charity that has been outlawed by some governments for its support of the terror group Hamas and other jihadist organizations, according to grant documents.
The Department of Health and Human Services has provided a $270,000 grant to Islamic Relief Worldwide, a charity that has repeatedly been linked to terrorism financing and support for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, according to recent grant information.
The grant was awarded as part of a larger project to provide health services in Nairobi, Kenya, through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to the grant.
Some terrorism experts have expressed concern that the administration is providing funds to Islamic Relief given its past ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, ties that have led some governments to outlaw the charity.
The United Arab Emirates and Israel both banned the charity in 2014 after investigations revealed that Islamic Relief had ties to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other entities engaged in terror financing, according to reports.
The Department of Health and Human Services did not respond to a request for comment on the grant from the Free Beacon. I wonder why?
