Muslim charity asks us for money to help “to fight Christians”June 20, 2011
As we’ve noted before, Money Jihad blog receives demands for zakat from Muslims all over the world from direct emails or from comments submitted on Money Jihad posts. (See this old post for for a dozen examples of “zakat spam” we’ve intentionally left un-deleted.)
These requests are laughable to anybody who is actually familiar with the content of this blog. As an anti-poverty program, zakat has an abysmal record. As a terrorist financing method, zakat has been wildly successful. This blog donating a single penny in zakat would be as absurd as saying that Islam is a religion of peace.
This message we received through “Contact us” from an entity purporting to be “Islamic Relief Aid Uganda” is also absurd, laughable, and disturbing. Their IP address corresponds to Kampala, Uganda.
