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.

Name: Islamic Relief Aid Uganda

This is an Email from Islamic Relief Aid Uganda.we need to fight Christians who want to take over our land in Northern Uganda,we are requesting for Money Jihad Brothers to help us fight the Christians get out of our land and this will require publication of materials to be distributed to all Mosques.

  1. If I was in military, I might had send them bags with GPS broadcasting gadgets, and a drone waiting to hit the Gadgets :)… but I am not a military person, I am a civilian and above all I am a Money Jihad commenter :D ….So which Bank Account and which specific bank is offering them services ? ASK the bank account, ASK THE BANK ACCOUNT…. I am curious :D

    I bet it will be either a Turkish bank, or a British Bank.. as probability of those two is pretty high… BTW : http://www.hudson-ny.org/2206/britain-parallel-islamic-financial-system

    • Capital thinking, Puneet, on getting the bank info! Consider it done.

    • Unfortunately, I got no response when I emailed them back. Maybe they caught on to our purposes…
