Silicon Valley fund gives $330 thousand to CAIR, Islamic Relief

Israel National News, March 27, 2017:

Foundation seeks to ‘make our region and world better for all -‘ yet shuns calls to cease funding Islamists.

The Middle East Forum research center has revealed that the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) has donated a total of over $330,000 to two extremist organizations: the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Relief.

The Philadelphia-based Forum contacted SVCF with evidence of the extremist links of CAIR and Islamic Relief, but received no response. The Middle East Forum is now publicly calling for an immediate and permanent termination of SCVF’s funding of these organizations, and has started a nationwide campaign to this end.

The SVCF is the country’s wealthiest community foundation, with more than $8 billion in assets. It has enjoyed positive press coverage during its 10-year history, but has also come under some criticism. Worst of all, the MEF states, is its flowing generosity to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Relief.

MEF says it privately contacted SVCF last month with evidence of the extremism of CAIR and Islamic Relief, including the bigotries and prejudices of its officials and speakers. SVCF officials essentially “refused to discuss the matter,” MEF reports, but rather “engaged in a flurry of ad hominem attacks on the Forum.”

It is “unconscionable that such a leading institution as SVCF, which claims to support ‘understanding and tolerance,'” should help organizations that rely on ignorance and hatred,” the Forum declares. “To be precise, CAIR and Islamic Relief have a long history of providing platforms to speakers who denigrate and threaten women, Jews, Christians, the LGBTQ community, and Muslims belonging to minority sects.”

As examples, the Forum cites regular speakers at the two organizations’ events who have rationalized honor killings or said that men may beat or rape their wives. “It should not be politically divisive,” the Forum states, “to state that these ideas are incompatible with SVCF’s self-proclaimed commitment to diversity and tolerance.”

SVCF did say that CAIR is in “good standing with [U.S.] federal agencies,” but the MEF counters that the FBI and the Justice Department have blacklisted CAIR since it was named an unindicted co-conspirator during a terrorism financing case in 2008. Both CAIR and Islamic Relief are designated as terrorist groups in the United Arab Emirates, while the Anti-Defamation League has said that CAIR promotes anti-Jewish sentiment.

By funding them, MEF charges, SVCF is “legitimizing Islamists as leaders of American Islam,” enabling them “to speak on behalf of ordinary Muslims.”

“If the foundation really wants to put its money where its mouth is,” the MEF concludes, it should fund moderate Muslim-American groups working to fight Islamic extremism, and spread the message that intolerance need not be tolerated when doing charitable work with Muslims.

    svcf are a pack of liars who are funded by the brain dead new world order socialists who will do whatever they can to destroy America, not realizing that they will destroy themselves in their failed attempts. Support American industry by not supporting those who support svcf.

    I live near Columbia, Maryland, where I saw a poster at a supermarket advertising a talent show at a local high school. All proceeds, the poster stated, would go to three groups: Grassroots; Islamic Relief USA; and Doctors Without Borders. These groups, and especially Islamic Relief, take advantage of the naivete and compassion of young people to collect funds for Hamas and other terrorists. Very sad.

      Suggest someone put up posters beside the talent show poster telling people what Islamic Relief USA is really about and how they send money to Hamas and other terrorists.

        And then they will have to go to the hospital for being beat nearly to death….by Obama/killary/Soros paid thugs…..too dangerous in Maryland to speak out…the law enforcement there are PC Dhimmis…..

          Maryland is it? The state where those 2 freaks raped that 14 y.o. girl? And then some judge said the rapists were victims as well? Glad I don’t live in Maryland. Didn’t know/forgot it was controlled by evil Obama et al. From now on whenever I hear the name Maryland I will get the shivers.

    Taqiya – Islamic Deception. Muslims are taught to deceive the kuffar (non-Muslim) about their true beliefs in order to defend the cause of Islam and Jihad. This deception called – taqiya.

    All proceeds goes for the destruction of America and that includes you, the unsuspecting non-muslim, islamic sympathizers as well as liberals.

    Too bad Trump hasn’t already labeled CAIR a terrorist organization……then all those air-headed wanks in the Silicon Valley would be under arrest about now….instead of yucking it up with the other dhimmis in Californication……

    Funding terrorists. What could go wrong?

  • iprazhm

    This is aiding and abetting the enemy. But until the traitors in Congress list CAIR as a terrorist organization, we are doomed by their blood stained hands.

    Funding, funding, funding
    Always something to fund
    There is only so much money
    Should be used for citizens first
    For decades some efforts have been funded
    To no avail, always more funding is required
    Majority of funds I think are embezzled
    By some in charge for their own use
    Or diverted to Terrorism

    This is off topic but so bizarre it has to be said
    A candidate for Conservative Party Canada
    Chris Alexander, I think his name is
    Wants to admit a minimum of,…………
    400,000 yes. 400,000
    Immigrants “minimum” per year into Canada
    As TheBlazingCat said. “good luck with that Chris”
    Are the sane people in this world already a minority?
