Shock Video: Hamas Fundraising at Florida Mosque


The team at New English Review has a major exclusive report today exposing a Hamas fundraising event at an Orlando, Florida mosque. The jaw-dropping clip, which you can watch by clicking on the viewer below, features notorious pro-terrorist British MP George Galloway and Islamist shill Mahdi Bray of the Muslim American Society (MAS) soliciting funds at Orlando's al-Rahman mosque in January 2009. Here's more, from Big Peace:

The fundraiser– held at Masjid Al-Rahman mosque in Orlando, Florida– was intended to raise money for Galloway’s Viva Palestina, then funneling money openly to the Islamist terrorist movement of Hamas in Gaza. (In fact, Galloway’s trips to Gaza with duffel-bags of cash, clearly “material support for terror,” lead to him to him being banned from entering Canada.)

As terrorism expert Patrick Poole writes:

According to press accounts, more than $1 million in aid for Hamas, including the cash and supplies raised in Orlando at Musri’s mosque, along with funds raised in Kansas, New York and Illinois, was provided on Galloway’s July 2009. There to greet them and take possession of the cash was Hamas economic minister Ziad al-Zaza and Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, another designated global terrorist.

The video also serves as a backgrounder for the larger Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the United States, including the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others. These groups were unindicted co-conspirators in the nation’s largest terrorism financing trial, United States v. Holy Land Foundation.

Indeed. Galloway, it must be mentioned, is barred from entering Canada due to his terrorist connections. But he still apparently has an open door to raise funds for jihad in the U.S. Is this the kind of activity President Obama had in mind when he spoke about easing rules on Muslim zakat--or "charitable giving"--during his infamous Cairo speech last year?  Watch the clip below.

# RE: Shock Video: Hamas Fundraising at Florida Mosque

Very clear video evidence of fundraising for terrorists: where is our intelligence community? We must deny these men entry to the USA and confiscate their funding.

It is hard to believe, but the highest levels of our government know about this. Our intelligence community is too good to be ignorant of these activities. And that means that they have told our president about this fundraising for terrorist organizations.

Thank you to Erick Stakelbeck for exposing this gaping hole in our anti-terror armor. And shame on our government for allowing this to happen.
