Illinois: Zakat Foundation to open cultural center specifically for Rohingya Muslims in the state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 7, 2016

While we focus on Syrians, thousands upon thousands of equally questionable Muslim refugees are being admitted to the US—most notably Somalis, Iraqis, Uzbeks and now enough Rohingya Burmese Muslims to warrant a special “cultural” center for them!

Rohingya

Explain to us again how we are security-screening the Rohingya who have fled Burma (Myanmar) and Bangladesh in boats and are scattered throughout Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

 

My! My! how times have changed.  When I first began writing RRW, the US State Department would not admit Rohingya Muslims. Now thousands are here!

We have probably the largest archive anywhere on the Rohingya Muslim ‘refugee’ issue with 187 posts extending back to 2007 where we first learned from Time magazine about how Islamic terror groups had infiltrated the devout Rohingya population.

If someone wanted to write a book on how the ‘humanitarians’ and the international Leftists can wear down a country (the US) by creating a media drumbeat to the point where our leaders have now thrown previous caution to the wind and are admitting refugees who definitely cannot be properly screened, your research is done on these pages! (Unfortunately, most of our so-called leaders in Washington don’t even know this is happening!)

Here is one of many posts I wrote way back when.  And this is what Time magazine said about the Rohingya in 2002!

Here is what Time magazine said about Rohingya on October 14, 2002 in an article entitled, ‘Deadly Cargo’ by Alex Perry.

Today, southern Bangladesh has become a haven for hundreds of jihadis on the lam. They find natural allies in Muslim guerrillas from India hiding out across the border, and in Muslim Rohingyas, tens of thousands of whom fled the ethnic and religious suppression of the Burmese military junta in the late 1970s and 1980s. Many Rohingyas are long-term refugees, but some are trained to cause trouble back home in camps tolerated by a succession of Bangladeshi governments. The original facilities date back to 1975, making them Asia’s oldest jihadi training camps. And one former Burmese guerrilla who visits the camps regularly describes three near Ukhia, south of the town of Cox’s Bazar, as able to accommodate a force of 2,500 between them.

This is the news today from Illinois (hat tip: domstudent11) from The Daily Northwestern:

Home to more than 2,400 new refugees from 29 nations that migrated in the past year, residents say Illinois has historically been an open and welcoming place for asylum-seekers and immigrants alike.

“Illinois is easier to resettle because it’s so diverse,” said Suzanne Akhras Sahloul, a Syrian refugee and founder of the Syrian Community Network. “It’s important to see people who are of different ethnic backgrounds because then that makes our transition a little bit easier.”

Rohingya Cultural Center to open in Chicago on Saturday. http://www.zakat.org/news/rohingya-cultural-center/

But following Governor Bruce Rauner’s call in November to halt the flow of Syrian refugees into Illinois and Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric on immigrants, including a proposal to temporarily bar all Muslims from entering the United States, some say the state may turn in a different direction. [Illinois is in the top five states for the resettlement of Syrian Muslims, see here.]

Muslim ‘charity’ to open cultural center just for Rohingya.

In the 2015 calendar year, Syrians made up about 6 percent of all refugees in Illinois, preceded by those from the Democratic Republic of Congo at 12 percent, Iraq at almost 20 percent and Myanmar at nearly 40 percent, according to U.S. Department of State data.

The Zakat Foundation of America, an organization that provides resources for low-income communities, plans on opening a culture center just outside of Evanston this weekend. The center, which has been in the works for six months, is the latest effort by the organization to provide resources for Rohingyan refugees fleeing Myanmar.

“There are two basic things motivating the project,” said Jamie Merchant, public relations coordinator at Zakat. “The specific problems of this uniquely disadvantaged community of the Rohingya and also trying to establish a new angle for approaching the general challenges of resettlement.”

Catholic Bishops lobbied for Rohingya!

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops is one of the major lobbying groups to push for the seeding of America with Rohingya Muslims as we reported here in 2013.  I was in attendance when the USCCB said we must bring more Rohingya to America.

One more thing….

Although there is no evidence any of your tax dollars are going to this group, but generally the federal government (with grants) encourages the establishment of cultural centers specifically for ethnic groups to be with their own kind of people, how does that help assimilation to America?

    Wait a minute. Zakat? The obligatory tax Islam requires of its adherents to support the poor, the needy and those striving “for Allah’s cause”? Charity for the less fortunate isn’t all Zakat supports. Among the 7 purposes Zakat supports is jihad, not the personal kind, but the cultural and violent kind, as we can see in the excerpts below. It’s mandatory that a percentage of Zakat goes to finance jihad and the mujahedeen who carry it out.

    Yusuf Ali Note 1320: “Zakat or charitable gifts are to be given to the poor and the needy and those who are employed in their service. That is, charitable funds are not to be diverted to other uses, but the genuine expenses of administering charity are properly chargeable to such funds. Who are the needy? Beside the ordinary indigent, there are certain class of people whose need is great and should be relieved. Those mentioned here are: Those who are struggling and striving in Allah’s Cause by teaching or fighting or in duties assigned to them by their righteous Imam, who are thus unable to their ordinary living…”

    “Those fighting for Allah” means, according to Yusuf Ali, Reliance of the Traveller and the recognized true and accurate scholars means ** people engaged in Islamic military operations, for which no salary has been allotted in the Army roster. (O: but who volunteers for jihad without remuneration). They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent, of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses (O: for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged. Though nothing has been mentioned here of the expense involved in supporting such people’s families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it). **Excerpt from Reliance of the Traveller.

    Yeah, a charity named after the Zakat…

      Thanks so much for taking the time to explain Zakat. I just hope this Zakat isn’t coming directly out of the US Treasury!

  4. These muslim “charities” are nothing more than fronts for psychological operations unleashed on us by leftist operatives. They know that by flooding us with potential insurgents, we cannot possibly track them all. We should pay very close attention to this organization, and the people behind it.

  6. The Muslim Rohingyas need a home. They are a primitive culture and would probably be better off secluded from modern man. Palmyra Atoll is 1,000 miles south of Hawaii, and is a territory owned by the United States. However, as isolated as it is, it is officially uninhabited and unorganized. The U.S. military built an airstrip there during World War II, which has fallen into ruin. The atoll now is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife agency, There is room enough for their livelihood, the sea can provide food. Quonset hut housing could be built easily and humanitarian aid could be provided until they are self sufficient. Another Island territory that could be provided for other Muslim Refugees is the Johnston Atoll in the Pacific.

        Nor should it be. There is no reason whatsoever why the U.S. taxpayer has to fork over what should be THEIR savings for muzlim scum to be brought into this country. Want more? I’ll tell you what is in store for us if this insanity – TREASON – isn’t stopped:

        These quotes are from their UN-holy book – the quran:

        2:191-193: “And slay them wherever you come upon them…”

        4:89: “They wish that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of Allah; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper.”

        5:33: “This is the recompense of those who fight against Allah and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth, to do corruption there: they shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall alternately be struck off…”

        8:12: “When thy Lord was revealing to the angels, I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them!”

        8:60: “Make ready for them whatever force and strings of horses you can, to terrify thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides them that you know not; Allah knows them. And whatsoever you expend in the way of Allah shall be repaid you in full; you will not be wronged.”

        9:5: “Then, when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.”

        9:29: “Fight those who believe not in Allah and the Last Day and do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden — such men as practice not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book — until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled.”

        9:111: “Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their possessions against the gift of Paradise; they fight in the way of Allah; they kill, and are killed; that is a promise binding upon Allah in the Torah, and the Gospel, and the Koran; and who fulfills his covenant truer than Allah? So rejoice in the bargain you have made with Him; that is the mighty triumph.”

        9:123: “O believers, fight the unbelievers who are near to you; and let them find in you a harshness; and know that Allah is with the godfearing.”

        47:4: “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds; then set them free, either by grace or ransom, till the war lays down its loads.”

        *********************************************************************************************

        From “An Explanatory Memorandum” – Muslim Brotherhood:

        “The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

        *********************************************************************************************

        From the Muslim Brotherhood: “The Project”:

        Rather than focusing on terrorism as the sole method of group action, as is the case with Al-Qaeda, in perfect postmodern fashion the use of terror falls into a multiplicity of options available to progressively infiltrate, confront, and eventually establish Islamic domination over the West. The following tactics and techniques are among the many recommendations made in The Project:

        * Networking and coordinating actions between like-minded Islamist organizations;

        * Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of “moderation”;

        * Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood’s collective goals;

        * Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with shari’a law;

        * Avoiding social conflicts with Westerners locally, nationally or globally, that might damage the long-term ability to expand the Islamist power base in the West or provoke a lash back against Muslims;

        * Establishing financial networks to fund the work of conversion of the West, including the support of full-time administrators and workers;

        * Conducting surveillance, obtaining data, and establishing collection and data storage capabilities;

        * Putting into place a watchdog system for monitoring Western media to warn Muslims of “international plots fomented against them”;

        * Cultivating an Islamist intellectual community, including the establishment of think-tanks and advocacy groups, and publishing “academic” studies, to legitimize Islamist positions and to chronicle the history of Islamist movements;

        * Developing a comprehensive 100-year plan to advance Islamist ideology throughout the world;

        * Balancing international objectives with local flexibility;

        * Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant;

        * Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions;

        * Instrumentally using existing Western institutions until they can be converted and put into service of Islam;

        * Drafting Islamic constitutions, laws and policies for eventual implementation;

        * Avoiding conflict within the Islamist movements on all levels, including the development of processes for conflict resolution;

        * Instituting alliances with Western “progressive” organizations that share similar goals;

        * Creating autonomous “security forces” to protect Muslims in the West;

        * Inflaming violence and keeping Muslims living in the West “in a jihad frame of mind”;

        * Supporting jihad movements across the Muslim world through preaching, propaganda, personnel, funding, and technical and operational support;

        * Making the Palestinian cause a global wedge issue for Muslims;

        * Adopting the total liberation of Palestine from Israel and the creation of an Islamic state as a keystone in the plan for global Islamic domination;

        * Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them;

        * Actively creating jihad terror cells within Palestine;

        * Linking the terrorist activities in Palestine with the global terror movement;

        * Collecting sufficient funds to indefinitely perpetuate and support jihad around the world;

        In reading The Project, it should be kept in mind that it was drafted in 1982 when current tensions and terrorist activities in the Middle East were still very nascent. In many respects, The Project is extremely prescient for outlining the bulk of Islamist action, whether by “moderate” Islamist organizations or outright terror groups, over the past two decades.
