Muslim groups are refusing federal money allocated under the Obama administration to fight terrorism.
It is stunning that taxpayer monies were being heading over to Islamic groups to fight terror. First, what accountability is there? How do they prove results? Secondly, if these groups are now refusing millions to fight jihad, refusing to fight terror, how good an investment could it have been?
Mosques, Islamic Centers, Muslim leaders and groups should not have to be paid to fight jihad terror. They should be fighting the good fight because it is the right thing to do. I do. My colleagues do.
Muslims will no longer fight jihad-terror because Trump is president? That tells us they never were.
Jihad fighting jihad?
Jihad is “scary stuff” – fighting it is required of freedom-loving peoples.
We are talking millions of dollars here. Roughly $10 million awarded by the Homeland Security Department has been rejected. Counter-jihad groups should have have been given the money but that has never happened.
Dearborn, Michigan, Muslim Leaders said last week it was turning down $500,000 because of the “current political climate.” And a leading Somali organization in Minneapolis, also turned down $500,000 for its youth programs.
Fourth Muslim group rejects federal grant to fight extremism
Jihad is “scary stuff” – fighting it is reassuring.
