Obama Admin Feds Give $270K Grant To Islamic ‘Charity’ With Alleged Ties To Jihad Terror Groups
This is consistent with Obama’s years-long pro-jihad policy both here and abroad. This is a pattern.
Despite a “mountain of evidence,” Obama’s DoJ scuttled the prosecutions of scores of terror-tied Islamic groups named in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history — including CAIR, ISNA, MSA et al.
