WAMY funds another Pakistan mosque

November 19, 2012

The World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), an agency of the Saudi government that has funded Wahhabi causes and terrorists around the world for decades, has opened a new mosque in Pakistan.  Yeah, because that’s exactly what Pakistan needs:  more Islam.

From IINA on Nov. 6:

The World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) has opened recently a mosque in Deir Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan.

In an inaugural ceremony, held on this occasion, a number of speakers praised WAMY’s efforts in supporting the Pakistani people. WAMY opened earlier seven new wells in Pakistan that benefit nearly 20,000 citizens, as part of its efforts to provide potable water to the poor and needy in the Islamic world, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

This project should not be confused with other recent news of Saudi funding of a new $100 million mosque in Kabul and projects in Maldives, which are separate attempts to spread Wahhabi Islam to countries that were somewhat more religiously moderate prior to infiltration by Saudi money.

Ethiopia rightly suspects zakat; arrests 6 Saudis

August 7, 2012

Ethiopia has arrested six Saudi nationals who were caught distributing funds for terrorist operations.  The Saudi embassy claims that the operatives were distributing “charity” and “donations.”  Thankfully, the historically Christian empire of Ethiopia isn’t buying the spin, and is beginning to take the threat of Wahhabi money seriously.

From the African Globe on Jul. 24:

Ethiopia Arrest Saudi Arabians On Suspicion of Financing Terror

Ethiopian authorities on Sunday have arrested six Saudi Arabian nationals on suspicion of financing terrorist activities in the country. Saudi Arabian media claim that the six Saudi nationals were distributing “charity” to Muslims in the Ethiopian capital.

A senior official at the Saudi Embassy in Addis Ababa said that all six Saudis were detained while distributing “donations”. A lawyer appointed by the Saudi Embassy is following up with investigations and trying to get the Saudis released, the official claim.

Last Saturday, Ethiopian police clashed with scores of Muslims protesters complaining that the state is interfering in their religion, witnesses and officials said. The protesters, some wearing masks, blocked the entrance of the Anwar Mosque in the west of the capital Addis Ababa and hurled stones at riot police who had surrounded the compound after noon prayers.

Thousands of Muslims have staged sporadic street protests in the capital since late last year, arguing that the government is promoting an alien branch of Islam, the Al Ahbash sect, which is avowedly apolitical and has numerous adherents globally.

The government denies promoting Al Ahbash, but is determined to prevent Islamic militancy and war mongering spilling over from neighbouring Sudan or lawless Somalia.

The Islamic schoolhouse remains the incubator for Wahhabi indoctrination across the Muslim world today, yet we do nothing about its funding.  Please take a look at this recent post Shariah Finance Watch:

Vile charity to open at least 7 new branches

June 5, 2012

The International Islamic Relief Organization has been an important entity in spreading virulent Wahhabi teachings beyond the borders of Saudi Arabia to the farthest reaches of the Islamic world.  IIRO’s branches in the Philippines and Indonesia were designated as terrorist entities by the United States in 2006.  Saudi Arabia must figure that this is a good time for IIRO to spread its tentacles once more across the globe.

Sorry to Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, India, the Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, and Angola.  You will be the next victims.  The Koran says that the mujahideen are eligible recipients of zakat.  Muslim scholars, particularly in Saudi Arabia, are fully aware of this provision of Islamic law, and they will keep that in mind as they allocate zakat funding to these new branches.

IIROSA to open overseas chapters

The International Islamic Relief Organization-Saudi Arabia (IIROSA), a major Saudi-based charity with a mandate to provide necessary aid and relief globally, plans to open overseas chapters in various countries, Adnan Khalil Basha, IIROSA secretary-general told Arab News on the sidelines of a reception hosted for foreign diplomats based in the capital here on Tuesday.

The recepion was organized to highlight the IIROSA programs and projects being carried out in different countries. The IIROSA aims to identify impoverished areas and the needy population across the world, especially in countries where Muslims are in minority and to lend them support on priority basis. The event was addressed by Abdullah bin Abdulmohsin Al-Turki, secretary-general of the Muslim World League (MWL).

Diplomats from the Arab region, Islamic countries, Africa, Europe and Americas attended the conference. A number of foreign envoys and diplomats praised the IIROSA activities saying the organization has been delivering aid in different parts of the world adhering to the international rules that govern charities.

Referring to the expansion plan undertaken by the IIROSA, Basha said his organization was planning to open new chapters in Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, India, Cote d’Ivoire, Sierra Leone, Angola and a few other countries. About the dangers posed to aid workers in countries such as Tunisia, where the situation is still volatile, he said that “this is the time to open IIROSA offices in countries like Tunisia and at places where there are uprisings, unrest, natural disasters and poverty.”

“Every year, the IIROSA plans to open five or six chapters across the world, but sometimes we succeed and sometimes we don’t because of stricter regulations in those countries or tight licensing regulations,” said the IIROSA chief. “In fact, we are working to open a chapter in India,” said Basha, adding that the IIROSA is doing its best to bring home to Indian officials that it is a transparent organization.

He said the IIROSA wanted to boost communication with different societies across the world to promote greater understanding and friendship. “Our work is purely humanitarian and we do our best to serve the needy around the world without any discrimination.”

“We establish educational and health institutions, build training and rehabilitation centers, construct orphanages and shelters for the needy besides establishing water supply system and digging wells,” he explained. Asked about the budgetary constraints faced by the IIROSA and other Islamic charities, he said the “IIROSA had been getting its resources from endowment (auqaf) properties, donors and from our partner organizations.” “There is no exact financial budget or annual budgetary allocations, rather it depends on the donors how much they would give,” said the IIROSA chief, adding that all finances are audited and made transparent as per international regulations and standards.

About its relief operations, Basha said his organization has always been among the first to assist victims of natural or man-made disasters providing them with accommodation, food and medical treatment. He said the assistance extended by the IIRO has so far benefited more than 43 million people in 149 countries.

The organization financed and managed 1,162 projects benefiting more than 1.2 million people in four continents in 2011, Basha said.

“During floods in Pakistan, we were among the first to be there and in Somalia we were among the major relief organizations to extend relief to the hunger-stricken people,” said the IIROSA chief, who has been supervising a number of aid and relief operations launched by this charity.

He pointed out that the IIROSA has helped in the implementation of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015, which includes eradication of poverty, universality of primary education, limiting rate of child mortality, environmental sustainability and holding international partnerships.

At the end of the event in Riyadh, an IIROSA documentary film titled “Pioneer” was shown to the diplomats, which highlighted some of the humanitarian and relief achievements of the organization. The diplomats and officials led by Al-Turki and Basha also visited a photo exhibition, which was organized on the sidelines of the event.

The IIROSA is a charity affiliated with the Makkah-based Muslim World League.

Zakat used in Ethiopia to bribe Christians to Islam

April 8, 2012

Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian nations on Earth, is under assault by foreign Wahhabi elements dropping money and incentives to lure local impoverished Christians to Islam.  In this video, the archbishop of Addis Ababa describes the problem, which he characterizes as proselytism to Islam “by financial means”:

H/t to the eceProject for uploading the original video last year.  The archbishop also explains the desire of the Wahhabis to impose sharia law on Ethiopia.

Qatar’s money jihad on Europe

February 24, 2012

More on Qatar’s money being used to support Wahhabi Islam abroad.  This excellent piece from Soeren Kern describes the Qatari infiltration of Muslim populations of France, Spain, and other countries of Europe:

Qatar Financing Wahhabi Islam in France, Italy, Ireland and Spain

Qatar, the most fraudulent “moderate,” is “sparing no effort” to spread Wahhabi Islam across “the whole world,” discouraging integration, encouraging jihad.

The Persian Gulf Emirate of Qatar says it plans to invest €50 million ($65 million) in French suburbs that are home to hundreds of thousands of disgruntled Muslim immigrants.

Qatar says its investment is intended to support small businesses in disadvantaged Muslim neighborhoods. But Qatar, like Saudi Arabia, subscribes to the ultra-conservative Wahhabi sect of Islam, and critics say the emirate’s real objective is to peddle its religious ideology among Muslims in France and other parts of Europe.

Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, who has long cultivated an image as a pro-Western reformist and modernizer, recently vowed to “spare no effort” to spread the fundamentalist teachings of Wahhabi Islam across “the whole world.”

The promotion of Islamic extremist ideologies — particularly Wahhabism, which not only discourages Muslim integration in the West, but actively encourages jihad against non-Muslims — threatens to further radicalize Muslim immigrants in France, analysts say.

The Qatari investments are being targeted in blighted French suburban slums known in France as banlieues, where up to one million or more mostly unemployed Muslim immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East eke out an impoverished existence.

The banlieues are already being exploited by Islamist preachers from countries such as Morocco and Turkey, which are leveraging the social marginalization of Muslim immigrants in France to create “separate Islamic societies” ruled by Islamic Sharia law, according to a recent study which examines the rise of Islam in France.

The 2,200-page report, “Banlieue de la République” (Suburbs of the Republic) — commissioned by the influential French think tank L’Institut Montaigne, and directed by Gilles Kepel, a well-known specialist on the Muslim world — describes how Muslim immigrants are increasingly rejecting French values and identity in favor of Islam.

The report shows how Sharia law is rapidly displacing French civil law in many parts of suburban Paris and warns that France is on the brink of a major social explosion because of the failure of Muslims to integrate into French society.
