SNIPPET: "The International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO), a Saudi charity whose Indonesian and Philippine offices have been designated by the US. Treasury in connection with the financing of Al Qaeda, has registered a new office in the United States. According to Florida State records, the IIRO (U.S.A.) Inc. was registered as a non-profit Florida corporation in Hialeah, Florida on April 28, 2009. After being required by regulators to provide a street address rather than a PO Box, the office address for IIRO USA appears now to be located in a shopping mall and is likely some kind of mail drop. The Florida records identify the IIRO President as Adnan Khalil Basha who is the long-serving IIRO Secretary-General in Saudi Arabia and the IIRO U.S.A. registration document states that it is intended, to be the US chapter of the International Islamic Relief Organization.

“The Return of IIRO?”
By Douglas Farah
SNIPPET: “The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report has found that the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO), the Saudi charity whose Philippine and Indonesian offices have been designated as terrorist entities by the U.S. Treasury Department, has reopened a U.S. office, this time in Florida.
IIRO was not a run of the mill Saudi charity, but one backed strongly by the Saudi government. As described by Matthew Epstein and Evan Kohlmann in March 2003 Congressional testimony:”
Shut it down. Thanks for posting.
“Report: U.S.-Designated Charity Incorporates in Florida”
SNIPPET: “A Saudi charity and Islamic propagation group whose foreign branches were designated as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist organization by the U.S. Treasury seems to have opened a new office in South Florida. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report notes that the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) has registered as a non-profit in Florida.
The IIRO has branches in Indonesia and the Philippines. Florida corporate records show that the new entity is headed by Adnan Khalil Basha, the group’s Saudi Arabian based Secretary-General, and that it is intended to be the IIRO’s American branch.
The IIRO previously operated in Falls Church, Virginia and was run by Sulaiman bin Ali Al-Ali, who has been described as a wealth and well-connected figure in Saudi Arabia. He also directly solicited donations from the Saudi royal family.
Under Al-Ali, the IIRO operated an American branch called the International Relief Organization (IRO) and a D.C. corporation called Sana-Bell. Sana-Bell was designed to generate funds for the IRO. Sana-Bell also shared its address with the now defunct SAAR foundation, a network of businesses connected to Saudi banking interests and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT).”

ON THE INTERNET:
Thank you for the bump Jet Jaguar.
"At the time the Sana-Bell was established, Mr. Ali received $10 million from IIRO in Saudi Arabia that was earmarked for dispersal to Sana-Bell that, in turn, was to invest the funds and use the income generated to operate IRO. According to a complaint in a civil lawsuit, during the years 1992 through 1998 Sana-Bell invested $3.7 million with a company known as BMI or one of its affiliates. BMI, short for for Beit ul Mal, or Treasury House, was a Secaucus, N.J., investment firm a headed by Soloman Biheiri, an Egyptian immigrant. Mr. Biheiri, who also served on the advisory board of the American Muslim Council, has been described by U.S. authorities as the Muslim Brotherhoods financial toehold in the U.S. A U.S. Customs agent testified that Mr. Biheiri had close ties to global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Al Qaradawi who had been a guest in Mr. Biheiris home. U.S. authorities also stated BMI made or conducted financial transactions with persons who were or are now Specially Designated Terrorists or Specially Designated Global Terrorists, including Yassin Kadi, Mousa Abu Marzook and Mohammad Salah, the latter two important Hamas leaders."
Muslim charity? If ever there is an oxymoron.
