U.S. Mosque Already Tax-Exempt now getting DHS / FEMA Taxpayer Grants for Security

It appears that Muslim Brotherhood-linked institutions in the U.S. have found yet another way to benefit from taxpayers, in addition to being tax-exempt. The latest example comes courtesy of the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB), which is receiving tens of thousands of dollars in grant (taxpayer) money courtesy of a program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), which is an arm of the DHS.

A man who has been identified as a Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator of the Obama administration by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) is Mohamed Elibiary who until recently, had been an adviser to DHS. There is no evidence to suggest that Elibiary had any role in the program that allows grant money to go to mosque security. However, as a Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator of DHS, there’s equally no evidence that he would object to such a program; such evidence suggests he’d support it. In fact, his tweets were quite pro-Muslim Brotherhood as Shoebat.com reported. The grant program also further illustrates just why infiltration of the U.S. government by the Brotherhood is so problematic.

ISB, which already possesses 501(c)(3) status has found a new way to double-dip (h/t Pamela Geller):

ISB will be receiving $74,675.00 which will go towards upgrading, enhancing and adding to our security infrastructure. Over the next several months you will see contractors on-site conducting these security enhancements.

As Cultural Jihad points out, a Muslim Brotherhood front group that is already tax-exempt has been calling on other groups / mosques with similar status to take advantage of this additional revenue stream:

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 4/17/14) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is urging mosques and Muslim institutions nationwide to consider applying for funds available through the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP).

The program is designed to assist nonprofit organizations that are vulnerable to terrorist attacks with procuring and installing security equipment to enhance safety.

The practice of more seasoned Muslim organizations in the U.S. serving as a resource for newer ones and start-ups is a common practice, as Shoebat.com has reported. While Elibiary was an adviser to the DHS, Salam al-Marayati and Mohamed Magid head tax-exempt Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups in MPAC and ISNA respectively.

One of these men was adviser to DHS; two others head tax-exempt organizations.

Tax-exempt status being granted to highly questionable Islamic entities in the U.S. is not new. As Shoebat.com reported, many of these institutions were granted such status during the Bush administration. In fact, the signature of none other than Lois Lerner is at the bottom of several of the approval letters.

One such way to remedy these problems involves passage of a bill introduced by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) earlier this year. It calls for the Muslim Brotherhood to be identified as a terrorist organization and all of its affiliated groups to be put on watch or otherwise sanctioned.

Under such a scenario, it’s conceivable that all Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations and mosques – and there are many – with tax exempt status would lose that status as well as not qualify for security grants.

Shockingly, as Shoebat.com reported, Bachmann even said former Vice-President Dick Cheney told her he is on board.

Yes, it would have been nice if Cheney had that attitude on 9/12/01 instead of six years after leaving office. Perhaps the Dar al-Hijrah mosque would have had its tax-exempt status pulled. Dar al-Hijrah was visited by three 9/11 hijackers; had Anwar al-Awlaki as an Imam; was visited by Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan; is currently headed by an Imam who founded a Muslim Brotherhood organization; was attended by Abdurahman Alamoudi who has since been convicted to 23 years in prison on terrorism charges; and once had an unindicted co-conspirator in the first World Trade Center attack as an Imam.

There’s more but you get the point.

As for Cheney, it’s nice to see him make this turnaround but it would be a whole lot better if he began speaking about it publicly instead of having his view relayed by Bachmann. At minimum, Cheney’s daughter Liz should be speaking out.

Such people can be forgiven if and when they come completely clean but not until.

Dick and LIz Cheney.

Dick and Liz Cheney.

As Shoebat.com has reported, Liz knows the truth too.
