Posted on 02/15/2014 9:26:28 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
As Valentine's Day approaches, we are all wondering what to get for that special someone in our lives. However, if you are thinking about buying something from Edible Arrangements, you might want to re-think that particular purchase because you will be contributing to and helping to fund Islamic terror groups like Hamas.
Tariq Farid is the CEO of Edible Arrangements, which he started with his brother, Kamran Farid. Not only are they devout Pakistani Muslims, but they are major donors and fundraisers for American mosques, Islamic schools, and similar enterprises in Pakistan. Recent tax returns of their Farid Foundation, to which they and Edible Arrangements are major contributors, show that their foundation gives tens of thousands of dollars to Islamic schools and mosques in America and to Islamic Relief, the HAMAS/Al-Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood "charity" which sends tens of millions of dollars to finance jihad around the world.
An Islamic Relief fundraiser was attended by an individual who was undercover. There were featured young Muslim Arab kids simulating beheadings of Americans, Brits, and Israelis as the evening's "entertainment." Islamic Relief's chief official in Gaza was a HAMAS official with Bin Laden's photo, swastikas, and a "God Bless Hitler" banner as his screensavers. Islamic Relief's registered agent in the U.S. is Kazbek Soobzokov, the son of Nazi Waffen SS officer Tscherim Soobzokov and the lawyer for deported accused terrorist and Islamic cleric, Imam Wagdy Mohamed Ghoneim.
Although many of the Edible Arrangements stores are franchises, the Farids collect millions in franchise fees and royalties from each store. Each time you buy anything from any Edible Arrangements store, the Farids get a cut and you are funding their HAMAS charities in Gaza and Muslim community organizing in Chicago.
Islam is not a friend of the West. It never was and never will be. This "religion" has been forced upon the world by the use of the torch and the sword, and all those who will not convert are either killed or sold into slavery. What puzzles me though is the Left Wing's embrace of Islam. So-called "liberals" are supposedly "anti-religion" (well "anti-Christian" really), but they willingly defend and seem to embrace Islam with open arms and are the first to defend it, calling others "Islamophobic." Well, whatever the case may be, that is just another example of liberal hypocrisy.
I have always thought that Edible Arrangements was way overpriced and over done for nothing more than cheese, fruit and candy, (which you can buy at your local Supermarket for a lot less money). Prior to 2007, there have been times I was tempted (but did not) send an arrangement to a friend or family member. I am glad that I never did. I encourage you, as fellow Americans, not to patronize this business. No gift is worth having the brutal murder of men, women and children on one's conscience.
Why are you posting this on the 15th?
And you already support hamas and the brotherhood when you pay your taxes.
“Why are you posting this on the 15th?”
For next year?
WOW had no idea, good thing we never buy anything from them..see their commercials here in SoCal all the time
“A Muslim, Farid is founder, together with his brothers, of the Salma K. Farid Academy, an Islamic school in Hamden, Connecticut that opened in October 2008. It is named in honor of Farid’s mother, who died in 2005. Farid has also sought to establish a mosque in Wallingford, Connecticut to honor his mother, but failed to get town zoning approval for his proposal, which was strongly opposed by area residents. He is also a member of Deen Inc. New Haven, which aims to revitalize the inner-city neighborhood.”
Now why would a muslim want to “revitalize inner-city neighborhoods”?
So glad I got Sheri’s Berries!
Thanks for posting - maybe this is why a classmate of mine sold his Edible Arrangements business...other than the crazy territorial restrictions they had.
