“Redistribution”: FBI-Raided Abudayyeh Funded HAMAS While Being Funded BY Chicago

By Debbie Schlussel

Yesterday, I gave you the exclusive scoop about Chicago-based Palestinian Muslim “activist” and terrorist-financier Hatem Abudayyeh, who was raided by the FBI and whose many anti-war activist friends were subpoenaed for information on money they gave to Abudayyeh and the PFLP, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, as well as its connection to FARC, the South American terrorist group.  In my piece, I noted Abudayyeh’s many close Islamic terrorist relatives and that Abudayyeh and his organization (Arab American Action Network) get hundreds of thousands of dollars (actually, millions, if you add it up) in U. S. taxpayer funding.  Well, now, the mainstream media and  some of the mainstream conservative media have “caught up,” noting without credit to me (of course) that Abudayyeh gets a ton of tax funding.  Chicago media are also reporting that Abudayyeh was using PFLP to fund HAMAS.

When federal officers raided his North Side home last week, along with residences in Minneapolis, they were looking for funding links between Abudayyeh and the radical Islamic group Hamas. . . .

Even as Abudayyeh is under investigation by a federal grand jury, city of Chicago records . . . show that his Arab American Action Network has received thousands of dollars in city grants: as much as $457,000 since 1998. According to city officials, the money was intended for an after-school program for high-risk students who struggle with English. . . .

In 2001, Abudayyeh and several others filed a lawsuit against the city, seeking the freedom to wear traditional Arab headwear during Michigan Avenue protests. The case was settled. Terms unknown.

Please. We know the terms. The terms were: they got what they wanted, their lawyers got well-paid, and they got money, too. That’s always how it works with these Muslim activists and our weak pandering politicians and public officials.  ‘Cuz ya know it ain’t no security hazard to have a bunch of open supporters of Islamic terrorism marching down the streets with their faces completely covered by keffiyeh’s, right?  For security reasons, the only headwear we need regulate is the real, seldom-used Klan hood, not the Muslim version.  Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Maybe conservatives don’t want to admit that Abudayyeh got a ton of money from the Bush administration, a policy which the Obamaniks are simply continuing.  Hey, if the “national security/counterterrorism Prez” can do it, why not Obama?  Sorry, but I don’t miss Bush yet.  And if you do, see a doctor.

Your tax dollars at work. Your money essentially laundered through him to HAMAS, in the guise of English tutoring for illiterate Muslim illegal alien kiddies. Some tutoring probably took place, but as we all know, money is a fungible good, and these grants allowed him to use more money that he, himself, raised for HAMAS via PFLP and FARC.

So, how long until Abudayyeh is indicted . . . assuming the feds have the guts, and that’s a big assumption. They did nothing against this guy I’ve been complaining about since before 9/11. Don’t look for fast action now.

But if they do act, it’s too little, too late. How many innocent people were murdered courtesy of HAMAS funds he helped raise?

I’ve written about Abudayyeh in the past. Where were the Chicago “investigative reporters”? Busy pandering to him. How funny that they’ve now discovered the guy who was blatantly supporting Islamic terrorism right in their backyard, but were looking the other way and kissing his ass for most of the last decade.

I wish I could say that after all these years and all the damage and mass murder he’s funded, supported, and enabled, that the chickens are coming home to roost.  But it’s more like the roost is home to an utter chicken.

Besides the terrorist aspect, why is any government (Federal, State, Local), funding any ethnically or religiously based organization?

It is the waste of money spent on organizations like this that is driving the US towards bankruptcy.

Having said that, the US, Federal, and state governments are violating the Constitution by giving money to Islamic institutions. Any Arab organization is an Islamic front.

Furthermore, Islam is at war with America, and we are losing that war. Would we have given money to Germany or Japan during WWII, while they were trying to eliminate the USA?

It is time we stop catering to Islamists, and begin throwing these traitors out of the country.

Do Christian, Buddhist or Jewish organizations get public funding of this magnitude? I completely agree with post agove and think we need to prevent further funding of islamic organizations by our government and stop all aid to Pakistan and Palestinian causes.

“why is any government (Federal, State, Local), funding any ethnically or religiously based organization?”

Votes and money. Separation of church and state only applies to conservative Christian religions. Pandering to minorities is a cash cow. The politicians that WE put into office are criminally corrupt. The madness will not stop until WE fix it by handing out pink slips to these bums.

Debbie writes about these kind soles tutoring poor little illegal alien kiddies, and I would like to know what they were taught on our dime. Were suicide vest making, IED construction and sharia law enforcement part of the curriculum?

    Oops, meant to write souls, not soles.

The AAAN is not a Muslim organization. It is Arab, for Arab Christians and Muslims. It was founded by a Christian as well.

The PFLP is not an “islamic terror group”. First of all, it is the PFLP GC (not PFLP) that is on the US designated list. Second of all, the organization is SECULAR, not Islamist. It was created by Orthodox Christian George Habash.

L: Nice try, but I already pointed out that PFLP was founded by Christians and is now dominated and controlled by Muslims. So what? And both PFLP groups are on the terrorist list. Secular Arab Muslim terrorists are still Islamic terrorist. It’s in the blood. AAAN was founded by Hatem Abudayyeh’s parents, and they are Muslim. DS

This is just a bunch of ignorance, which is ok, ignorance is bliss right?

Don’t worry about the public fools NOT crediting you for your scoop.
Jesus will notice and he taught us NOT to do good deeds in public, or for the publicity, but to do to do them in secret/private and it WILL in-fact be noticed. By whom you say? By Jesus & his Father in Heaven of course.Yahweh bless…
