Habitat for Humanity's Terror-Linked Friends
For decades, Habitat for Humanity (HFH), a Christian charity, has been building homes for those who are less fortunate in society, regardless of religion. Because of this truly noble undertaking, the organization has garnered much praise around the world, including from leaders of nations. However, recently, the group has been doing something to lose that respect and sully its reputation. It has been allowing itself to become affiliated with groups associated with international terrorism. One of these groups is the Islamic Circle of North America or ICNA.
ICNA is the American affiliate of South Asian Islamist group Jamaat-e-Islami (JI). JI's militant wing, Hizbul Mujahideen, owned the Pakistani compound where Osama bin Laden was hiding out and where he was eventually killed by US Navy Seals. ICNA, itself, has been linked to terrorist financing and has used the web to promote different terrorist groups, including Hamas, al-Qaeda, Hezbollah and the Taliban.
