The Obama Administration Gives Six Figure Donation To Islamic Group Condemned For Links To Terror Groups

According to the Washington Free Beach, the Obama administration has granted $270,000 to an Islamic charity that has been outlawed by some governments that linked it to donating to terror groups.

The report said that The Department of Health and Human Services made the grant to Islamic Relief Worldwide as part of a health services effort in Nairobi and Kenya with the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.

In 2014, the United Arab Emirates and Israel banned Islamic Relief Worldwide asserting it had ties to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and other groups taking part in terror financing. In addition, the NGO Monitor recommended in 2015 that "a fully independent, transparent, and comprehensive audit of IRW's international activities and funding mechanisms be undertaken immediately."

The group recently appointed a new chief executive. The contribution gives the group its highest income level since 2012.
