INN ^ | 07/26/18 14:25 | Arutz Sheva Staff

The Obama administration approved a grant of $200,000 of taxpayer money to an al-Qaeda affiliate in Sudan, the Middle East Forum (MEF) discovered.

The grant was approved ten years after the US Treasury designated the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) as an organization which funds terrorists.

Government officials also authorized the release of at least $115,000 of the grant after they realized that the Khartoum-based ISRA was on the Treasury’s list of terror organizations.

ISRA, also known as the Islamic African Relief Agency (IARA), was designated as terror-supporting organization in October 2004, due to its connection with Osama bin Laden and his terror organizations Maktab al-Khidamat (MK) and Al-Qaeda, MEF reported.

According to the Treasury, ISRA began cooperating with MK in 1997, raising $5 million for the terror group by 2000. In 2003, ISRA raised money to help fund Hamas suicide bombings.

The group also tried to help “relocate” bin Laden and “secure safe harbor for him,” MEF emphasized. …

Aid and comfort to the enemy. The Constitution has a word for that.

Someone wake up the comatose AG.

But let’s not be racist. Don’t hang him. Give him a lethal injection.

After the trial and conviction of Obama and the rest of his traitorous kakistocrats, they all should be publicly hanged and left to rot off the noose.

That will give time for patriotic Americans to spit (or whatever) on the traitorous carcasses. I’d like to have a concessions stand there to sell beer to those standing in line waiting for their opportunity.

Trump needs to have this investigated...

Someone will sing rather than hang.

I’m not at all comfortable with the clandenstine stuff going on in Africa. Getting wrapped up in nasty tribal conflicts cannot lead anywhere good.

Obama funded an al Qaeda affiliate in Syria too. Other groups Obama, Clinton and McCain funded and supplied there simply turned over their weapons to ISIS.

The sorry SOB was never one of us, isn’t one of us and never will be one of us.
He should be locked up in GITMO as a foreign enemy combatant.
A complicit Congress allowed an unqualified, ineligible, unvetted foreigner to become POTUS. PeeLousie, and her filthy globalist ilk, should all be locked up in cells right next to Odongo’s. They’re all just as guilty as he is.

...And if any republican (ESPECIALLY Trump) had given a single dime out of his own pocket to such an organization, they would be in chains.

Where are the shouts of “treason,” like the Left is so willing to label Trump?

The Obamanation also made sure Iran was given billions to spread worldwide terror and build nuclear weapons.

John Kerry even explicitly said so.

Not to mention, before the “deal” was announced, a reporter asked him if there was going to be such a thing, and Kerry replied “Inshallah”.

Now that idea is intriguing. I like the spit and the beer part. But rotting carcasses will smell bad and cause people to lose their appetites for beer. How about putting them in the stocks and letting them starve to death that way, and beg for a swig of beer, too, as people spit on them. Using a puritanical punishment like the stocks might fit right in with Thanksgiving, too, if they happen to be sentenced on time for the festivities.
