Israel's 'FBI' Links 'Islamic Relief USA' Charity to Hamas
The Israeli government has banned Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW), a U.K.-based charity, for financing Hamas. Its American branch, Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA), is based in Virginia and, shockingly, its current CEO, Anwar Khan, is an advisor to the State Department as was its former CEO Abed Ayoub.
President Obama has boasted of his administration's work with IRUSA. Ayoub spoke at an event hosted by Vice President Biden in June 2012 when he was IRUSA's CEO.
IRUSA is sponsored by Microsoft, Cisco Foundation, GE Foundation and the JPMorgan Chase Foundation. Guidestar lists IRUSA's 2012 revenue as over $60 million.
