Zakat Foundation & Muslim Hands unite

August 27, 2010

The Zakat Foundation touts itself as a transparent, four-star Islamic charity about whom Charity Navigator stated, “The Zakat Foundation has demonstrated exceptional financial health, outperforming most of its peers in its efforts to manage and grow its finances in the most fiscally responsible way possible.”  The Chicago Tribune recommended it as an organization that readers could make donations to for Haiti earthquake relief in January.  And Hillary Clinton’s State Department bragged about the Zakat Foundation’s efforts in its servile America.gov coverage of Muslim American charity in Haiti.

It’s the kind of organization that you would donate zakat to this Ramadan.  An organization that would never sully itself by consorting with nefarious pro-Hamas charities of Yusuf al-Qaradawi’s Union of Good charity network, right?

Wrong.

In a Zakat Foundation video from January, the foundation’s national director, Khalil Demir, is seen in the Dominican Republic consulting with Muslim Hands official Abdul Latif about how to get aid to Muslim Haitian earthquake victims.  Muslim Hands is a member of the Union of Good meaning they fund Hamas.  Notice the Muslim Hands t-shirt:
