Qatari oil money brainwashes Muslim children

Indonesia's newest Wahhabi madrassa

Qatar Charity, an entity that Osama Bin Laden once regarded as one of Al Qaeda’s three most important charitable front groups, has committed 760,000 Qatari rials (about 200,000 USD) to build a madrassa in West Java, Indonesia.  The charity, which is blacklisted by Israel, does not even pay lip service to the idea of having “moderate” imams or curriculum at the school.  From the charity’s press release last month:

Qatar Charity has established an educational project in Indonesia, after a QAR 760,000 donation.

The project includes a school, mosque, library, clinic, Quran memorization center, student housing and a student service center and was funded by a donation from Aisha Hussain Behzad.

The opening ceremony was attended by Dr. Nur Shams, Director of Educational Affairs at the Indonesian Ministry of Religious Affairs, Dr. Al-Haj Saad Eddin, Governor of Bakassi city, Ibrahim Mohammed Al Mahmoudi, acting Qatari Ambassador, Ibrahim Zainal, Director of Monitoring at QC and Hassan Ozkor, QC Office Director in Indonesia.

Zainal stressed QC’s enthusiasm for the implementation of such projects, which work in cooperation with local authorities, local associations and the targeted communities and beneficiaries in order to support the most vulnerable.

The project resembles so many Gulf-sponsored initiatives over the past 40 years that use Arab oil wealth to export fiery Wahhabi teachings to parts of the Islamic world that historically had somewhat less dangerous expressions of Islam tempered by local traditions and culture.

Qatar Charity (sometimes called Qatar Charitable Society) was formerly known as the Qatar Charitable Foundation.  The Qatar Charitable Foundation was implicated as an Al Qaeda front, a Hamas-supporting Union of Good member that also funded Chechen Islamists, a central player in a failed assassination attempt on Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in 1995, and a financier of the Bangladeshi jihadist organization Jamatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB).
