The Jerusalem Post published a report yesterday detailing how Jihadist organizations finance their operations through a variety of smuggling and criminal enterprises.

Jihadist groups are said to be able to raise $300 million from such activities in Pakistan and Afghanistan in particular. Worse yet, the US consumer is indirectly funding this activity.

Insurgents have reportedly been making around $300 million a year from the export of Afghanistan’s minerals, almost all of which are exported to Pakistan. About 40 percent of the talc from Pakistan is then sold to U.S.- and EU-based companies to be used in make-up, sun creams, paints, olive oils and even car parts.
