Hillary Clinton Takes in More Islamist Money. HT: Matzav.
Hillary Clinton has received an additional $12,061 in campaign contributions from Islamist sources since the Middle East Forum (MEF) released its top-10 recipients of Islamist money list Oct. 20, the think tank reported.
Clinton was ranked first on the group’s 2015-2016 “Islamist Money in Politics” list of politicians who accepted funds from prominent Islamists with ties to terrorist organizations.
The Middle East Forum's "Islamist Money in Politics" (IMIP) project has revealed the top ten recipients of 2015-16 campaign contributions from individuals who subscribe to the same Islamic supremacism as Khomeini, Bin Laden, and ISIS.
Hillary Clinton tops the list, raking in $41,165 from prominent Islamists. This includes $19,249 from senior officials of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates on November 15, 2014.For example, Mrs. Clinton has accepted $3,900 from former CAIR vice-chairman Ahmad Al-Akhras, who has defended numerous Islamists in Ohio indicted – and later convicted – on terrorism charge
The new figures follow recently-released Federal Election Commission filings from August and September.
The Democratic presidential nominee has accepted $53,226 from prominent Islamists, including $16,216 from associates of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a group with “deep ties to the Muslim Brotherhood,” MEF reported. Salam al-Marayati, MPAC’s president, was “kicked off a congressional commission in 1999 when his defense of terrorist groups came to light,” according to MEF.
While the donations are relatively small, the information “holds politicians accountable for accepting funds from soiled sources, signals the Islamist lobby’s affections and intentions and tells voters who takes money from individuals linked to enemies of the United States and its allies,” the MEF reported.
