Fruit that funds terror sounds rotten to me

December 23, 2012

Ready for little more “retail jihad” this Christmas?  Debbie Schlussel reports:

Now, that it’s the holiday season and a time of buying and giving Christmas and Chanukah gifts, a lot of people make the convenient choice of sending fruit baskets to their friends and professional associates. But if you take this route, DON’T send a basket from Edible Arrangements. If you do, you are funding HAMAS abroad and Muslim community organizing, such as the group IMAN, the Inner City Muslim Action Network, in the U.S.

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 extremist 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 I attended undercover featured young Muslim Arab kids simulating beheadings of Americans, Brits, and Israelis as the evening’s “entertainment.” And as I told you, Islamic Relief’s chief official in Gaza was a HAMAS official with Bin Laden’s photo, swastikas, and a “G-d Bless Hitler” banner as his screensavers.

Sigh.  How can we ever hope to eliminate terrorist financing overseas if we can’t even stop it at home?  Edible Arrangements has over a thousand stores, including locations in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, Turkey, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, the U.A.E., and oh, let’s see, 107 stores in California.  Our Georgia readers may be interested to know that there are 29 of these stores in the Peach State, including one at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
