(Coral Springs, FL) Americans Against Hate (AAH), the terrorist watchdog group, is calling on the United States government to shut down the offices and freeze the assets of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) for its role in the financing of Hamas. As well, AAH is calling on the U.S. government to place the Muslim Brotherhood of Pakistan, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), on the State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) for the same.
In August of 2006, just nine short months ago, JI announced on its website that it had presented, via its charity Al-Khidmat Foundation (AKF), a check for $99 thousand (six million rupees) to the head of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal. Mashaal thanked JI and stated that Hamas would continue to wage Jihad (war) against Israel.
ICNA was founded in 1971 as the American arm of JI. On AKF's website, ICNA is listed as the charity's two top donors, ICNA Relief USA and ICNA Relief Canada. Another of the listed donors is ICNA's charity, Helping Hand.
AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman stated, "We have incontrovertible evidence that ICNA is part of JI and that JI is funding Hamas through a charity that ICNA is the top donor for. Given this proof, there is no reason whatsoever for the future existence of ICNA. In addition, given JI's financing of Hamas and given JI's communiqués with the leader of Hamas, there are clear grounds for the placement of JI on the State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations. We call on the United States government to take immediate action, with respect to both of these organizations."
To learn more about JI's and ICNA's financing of Hamas, read Kaufman's FrontPage Magazine piece, 'Helping Hand to Hamas.'

I have found evidence that the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is financing Hamas. Hamas is on the State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations. In August of 2006, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) announced on its website (http://www.jamaat.org/news/2006/aug/17/1001.html) that it had presented, via its charity Al-Khidmat Foundation (AKF), a check for $99 thousand to the head of Hamas. The Al-Khidmat Foundation's website indicates that the ICNA ("ICNA - Relief USA") is one of its donors (http://www.al-khidmatfoundation.org/index.php?id=73). I ask that you investigate the ICNA promptly and thoroughly.
Not just ICNA should be shut down, but also the big fish in the muddy pond, CAIR.
Along with CAIR, The Islamic Institute run by Grover Norquist needs a good long look, since he is the head man in charge of the White House immigration policy. Some in that group have already been indicted.
Grover Norquist and radical Islam
[snip]Grover Norquist (Christian Science Monitor)
Frank Gaffney has written in FrontPage magazine an article that is much needed and long overdue: “A Troubling Influence,” about the extensive ties that conservative activist Grover Norquist has with radical Islamic elements.
This is a lengthy and exhaustively documented piece about a man who has stood as a singular obstruction to efforts to alert people to the gravity of the threat from radical Islam. All of it should be read carefully, but here are a few highlights:
The association between Grover Norquist and Islamists appears to have started about five years ago, in 1998, when he became the founding chairman of an organization called the Islamic Free Market Institute, better known as the Islamic Institute. The Institutes stated purpose was to cultivate Muslim-Americans and Arab-Americans whose attachment to conservative family values and capitalism made them potential allies for the Republican Party in advance of the 2000 presidential election. . . .
Unfortunately, some associated with the Islamic Institute evidently had another agenda. Abdurahman Alamoudi, for one, a self-described supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah, the prime-mover behind the American Muslim Council (AMC) and a number of other U.S.-based Islamist-sympathizing/supporting organizations, saw in the Islamic Institute a golden opportunity to hedge his bets.
For years, Alamoudi had cultivated ties with the Democratic Party and its partisans, and contributed significant amounts to its candidates. These donations had given Alamoudi access to the Clinton White House and enabled him and his associates to secure the right to select, train and certify Muslim chaplains for the U.S. military. . . .
The right to select military chaplains not only offered Alamoudi and his colleagues the chance to recruit still more Islamists with specialized and highly useful skill-sets. It also was an invaluable legitimating credential to be wielded against those who might otherwise regard the American Muslim Council and its leader with suspicion, or worse.
Norquist is also playing a big role behind the scenes in pushing the illegal amnesty bill.
