The subject of Islamic charities funding Jihadist terrorism is one of the most popular subjects on Shariah Finance Watch. Barely a week goes by in which another Islamic charity is implicated in funding jihad. This latest example comes from Israel’s excellent Shin Bet security service.
Why do so many Islamic charities fund Jihad? Because Shariah mandates it.
The Shin Bet security agency…shut down three Muslim charities that authorities believe incited violence against Jews and Israeli security forces, especially in Jerusalem and on the Temple Mount. The move followed a decision by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, who outlawed all three groups in late December based on the Shin Bet’s recommendations.
A joint statement by the Shin Bet and police Lahav 433 Major Crimes Unit identified the organizations as Ruad Al-Aqsa, the Al-Jaffar Fund for Art and Literature, and the Nazareth-based Muslims for Al-Aqsa Association.
