WOW: Money Raised After Pittsburgh Shooting Went To An Islamic Center With Terror Ties

H/T Town Hall.

A Muslim and antisemite Linda Sarsour in charge of the fundraising this is no big surprise that the money is going to group with tied to terrorism.

In late October, Robert Gregory Bowers, a vicious anti-Semite, walked into the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh and shot and killed 11 people. Several people were injured, four of which were police officers. It was tragic—but of course, everyone blamed President Trump for reasons only morons understand. There were protests when he visited the site. Everyone was creating controversy when there needed to be none. But now, we have another controversy that could be brewing that isn’t related to Trump. It centers on anti-Semite Linda Sarsour. The anti-Israel activist seems to have been exposed for cheating the Tree of Life synagogue from money fundraised after the tragic shooting.

So @lsarsour raised $400,000 for the Tree of Life in Pittsburgh, but ONLY $10,000 got to them. Not enough for one funereal even. I think it’s great that other people support us, but not when they use our tragedy to fundraise and not even 10% gets to the real victims.

The propaganda arm (The Forward) tried to twist it, in another deceiving article by the ever so smart journalist, Pink, but the truth is clear.

Correction: ~$160K was raised as part of one general cemeteries campaign that pre-dates the TOL massacre and ~$240K was raised as part of the TOL campaign after the massacre. The $10K was from the first campaign.
I was wrong about the 10%, still troubling.

So how much went to the synagogue since the fundraising effort on their behalf?

$10,000 went to Tree of Life synagogue, while $155,000 went to the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh (!). People should be demanding their money back from @lsarsour.https://twitter.com/HenMazzig/status/1067368768844824588

The money raised in the name of Tree of Life may never reach them at all.

That’s what seems likely, but the $10k is meant to show that SOME MONEY was sent to them.

Update: Update: Islamic Center claims it will send the $155k check to Tree of Life synagogue. As for remaining $83,634, it will go to vague “projects that help foster Muslim-Jewish collaboration, dialogue, and solidarity.” So all that $ raised will simply vanish, it appears.

Flashback: El-Messidi and Sarsour were also behind the 6-figure sum that was raised to “repair Jewish cemeteries.” The money was never accounted for. Cemeteries said they never received a check. https://forward.com/fast-forward/376846/wheres-100k-linda-sarsour-promised-for-vandalized-jewish-cemetery/ 

Linda Sarsour Still Hasn’t Sent $100K She Promised To Jewish Cemetery

Now, some money was given to Tree of Life, around $10,000, but that was part of an effort to repair Jewish cemetaries that were vandalized. Since the shooting, around $240,000 were raised, but it appears little, if any, has been sent to Tree of Life. Of that $240,000-figure, $155,000 went to the the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh.

Hen Mazzig of The Jerusalem Post initially said that $400,000 was raised for Tree of Life, but then offered a correction, noting that $160,000 was raised by Sarsour as part of an effort to fix Jewish cemeteries and $240,000 was raised after the shooting. The corrected tweet is in the thread above.

Tree of Life received just $10,000 from the cemetery campaign, but doesn’t appear to have received a dime from the post-shooting fundraising effort, but now the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh says they will supposedly send its six-figure check ($155,000) to Tree of Life. According to Conservative Review’s Jordan Schactel, the other $83,634 will go “to vague ‘projects that help foster Muslim-Jewish collaboration, dialogue, and solidarity. Oh, and as for the money raised for Jewish cemeteries, several never received the funds that were promised (via CR):

According to the left-wing The Forward, the Islamic group Celebrate Mercy has already funneled $155,000 — of over $238,634 that was raised supposedly for the victims of the shooting and the greater Jewish community of Pittsburgh — into the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh. Though the Forward article states that a document was posted signed by a representative of Celebrate Mercy, the director of the Islamic Center, and a “Tree of Life representative detailing exactly how the funds will be distributed to victims and their families,” the link to the document is dead.

As for the remaining $83,634, raised above the fundraiser’s $150,000 goal, it will go toward the vague goal of “projects that help foster Muslim-Jewish collaboration, dialogue, and solidarity,” Celebrate Mercy director Tarek El-Messidi toldThe Forward.

[…]

The Islamic Center of Pittsburgh is a mosque with deep tiesto Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the United States. A former imam there was an overt anti-Semite who blamed Jews for the rise of ISIS, and he was ultra-cozy with anti-Semitic hate preacher Louis Farrakhan.

Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour in particular (who fundraised in the wake of the Pittsburgh attacks, through her Islamic advocacy group called MPower Change) has a long history of running Jewish “solidarity” scams, which resulted in raised cash simply disappearing.

Last year, Sarsour and El-Messidi raised over $100,000 for the purported goal of helping to repair Jewish cemeteries that were damaged by vandals. Months went by, and several cemeteries that were promised funds never received a check from the group.

Yeah, I could see how a lot of people are going to see this as a problem. Will it be big enough to warrant a lawsuit? We’ll see.
