While operating a nonprofit in the U.S. that was granted tax-exempt status by the official dismissed in the IRS scandal, President Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, has been supporting the terrorist organization Hamas as a fundraiser for the Muslim Brotherhood, according to bank-account information. Malik’s work with the Sudan-based Islamic Dawa Organization has prompted criminal charges in Egypt of aiding and abetting terrorism. “If you think Malik Obama, President Obama’s brother, dons a Hamas scarf for sentimental reasons, think again,” writes former PLO-member and native Arabic-speaking researcher Walid Shoebat on his blog.
Shoebat was referring to a report earlier this week of a photograph posted on the website of Malik Obama’s nonprofit, the Barack H. Obama Foundation. It showed him wearing a Hamas scarf that bears the well-known Palestinian slogan “Jerusalem is ours – We are coming!” Now, Shoebat reports, evidence has surfaced confirming Malik Obama, as the executive secretary of the Islamic Dawa Organization, has operated bank accounts in the Middle East with known ties to al-Qaida that are being widely utilized to raise money for terrorist activities conducted by Hamas in Gaza. Shoebat ties Bank Account No. 1782, set up in the Al Shamal Bank – an al-Qaida bank founded in Sudan by Osama bin Laden in 1983 to fund terrorist activities – with the bank account serving IDO. To substantiate the allegations, Shoebat points to advertising on the IDO website that promotes the accounts at the Al Shamal bank, published in Arabic here and here, referencing the Muslim Brotherhood “Aiding our Brothers in Gaza.” More
