IFANCA, the main halal certification organization in the U.S., is associated with several groups and individuals who have supported terrorism either financially or verbally.
미국 할랄 인증 주무기관인 IFANCA가 재정적으로 테러를 지원한 여러 테러 그룹 및 개인들과 관련이 있다는 사실이 밝혀졌다.
Money Jihad has previously revealed IFANCA’s links to the Saudi-based terror financing Muslim World League. Now, FrontPage Mag has laid out additional affiliations including ISNA, the Mosque Foundation, the MSA, and NAIT in an article called “Baby Food Jihad.”
금융지하드는 IFANCA가 사우디에 본부를 둔 세계 테러에 재정지원을 하는 세계무슬림 리그와 결속되었다는 것을 이미 밝혔다. 이번에는 MAG 잡지의 표지에 ISNA, 모스크재단, MSA 그리고 NAIT가 관련되어 있다는 것을 "유아식품 지하드"라는 제목으로 추가로 드러냈다.
When consumers buy products with IFANCA’s crescent-M logo, that means that the food manufacturer has paid IFANCA to be inspected for halal compliance before the logo can be used. The proceeds go toward IFANCA’s promotion of halal foods both domestically and overseas, where IFANCA is playing an increasingly active role. The business model is very lucrative for IFANCA, especially since they pay no taxes (even though they are not a charity).
소비자들이 IFANCA의 초생달이 그려진 할랄 마크가 부착된 상품을 구입한다는 것은 식품의 생산자가 그 마크를 사용할 수 있도록 허가받기 위하여 돈을 지불했다는 것을 의미한다. 이런 것은 국내에서나 해외에서 IFANCA가 할랄식품의 영향력을 확대시켜 나가게 됩니다. IFANCA의 사업형태는 구호기관이 아님에도 불구하고 세금면제 혜택을 받기 때문에 수지맞는 장사입니다.
In Canada, profits from the halal certification racket have been diverted to Hamas. Such activities by IFANCA cannot be ruled out considering the groups with whom IFANCA associates, its history of financial misrepresentations, and IFANCA’s increasing activities abroad.
카나다에서는 할랄인증사업으로 인한 이익금은 함마스로 전용된다.
An excerpt from “Baby Food Jihad” follows:
유아음식 지하드의 전문가는
…IFANCA is working with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) to create a national halal standards and accreditation body.
IFANCA는 국내 할랄 기준을 만들고 인증해 주는 기관으로서 북미이슬람협회(ISNA)와 협력하고 있다.
In 2007 and 2008, ISNA, which was co-founded by Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) leader Sami al-Arian, was named by the United Sates Justice Department as a co-conspirator in the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas.
2007년과 2008년에 팔레스타인 이슬람 지하드(PIJ)지도자 쌈미 알 아리안 씨와 공동설립한 ISNA는 미국 법무부로부터 수백만 달라의 재정을 함마스에 지원한 기관으로 알려져 있다.
Just this past September, the Canadian government stripped ISNA of its tax status in Canada for the financing of a Pakistani terrorist group.
바로 지난 9월 카나다 정부는 ISNA의 세금 납부 상황을 조사하는 과정에서 이들이 파키스탄 테러그룹에 재정지원한 사실을 밝혔다.
IFANCA is an active member of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago (CIOGC).
IFANCA는 시카고 이슬람기구의 활동적인 회원기관이다.
Other members include: the Mosque Foundation (MF), which has held fundraisers for individuals and groups associated with PIJ and Hamas; Islamic Relief (IR), which has been associated with al-Qaeda financing and that was named by the Israeli government a front for Hamas; Helping Hand (HH), which partnered with a Pakistani charity at the same time that charity delivered close to $100,000 to the residence of the head of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal; and the Muslim American Society (MAS), which has used the internet to propagate materials degrading women, cursing Christians, and calling for the murder of Jews and homosexuals.
다른 회원기관들을 보면: PIG와 함마스등과 연관되어 모금하는 개인이나 기관으로 구성된 MF, 이스라엘 정부로 부터 함마스를 지원한다고 지목된 알카에다와 관련된 IR, 함마스 지도자 칼레드 헤샤알에게 10만불을 보낸 파키스탄 구호기관의 협력기구인 HH, 인터넷과 홍보매체를 통해서 여성들을 비하하고 기독교인들을 저주하며 유대인들과 동성애자들을 살해하라고 촉구하는 MAS 등이 있다.
IFANCA’s terror and hate-related affiliations are understandable, given the individuals who are in charge of the organization.
IFANCA가 테러 및 증오 범죄와 관려이 있다는 것은 아래에 거명된 이 조직의 책임자들을 보면 납득이 된다.
Muhammad Munir Chaudry is a Founding Board Member and President of IFANCA. He is listed, along with a photo, on the“Speaker” page of ISNA. Sharing the page with him are fellow ISNA speakers: Esam Omeish, who resigned from the Virginia Commission on Immigration, after videos surfaced depicting him calling for violent jihad; Nihad Awad, National Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a reported front for Hamas; Siraj Wahhaj, who was named a party to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; and Zulfiqar Ali Shah, the former South Asia Division Coordinator for KindHearts, a charity whose funds were frozen by the U.S. Treasury Department in February 2006 for its alleged role as a Hamas financier.
Roger Othman is the Executive Director of IFANCA. According to hisbio found on the IFANCA website, Othman “has served on the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee of the Mosque Foundation.” As mentioned earlier, MF has been involved in Palestinian terror-related fundraising. In July 2007, one of Othman’s fellow MF Executive Committee alumni, Muhammad Salah, was convicted of obstruction of justice for making false statements during a legal proceeding and was sentenced to 21 months in prison. According to the FBI, Salah was recruiting and training Hamas members and was raising money for Hamas.
Ahmad Hussein Sakr is a member of IFANCA’s Board of Directors and has been with IFANCA since its inception. Prior to IFANCA, he was afounding member and president of the Muslim Students Association(MSA), ISNA’s main youth group and the first major Muslim Brotherhood organization inside the U.S. Sakr also served as an officer and sat on the Board of Directors of the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), ISNA’s financing wing. Like ISNA, NAIT was named by the United States government as a co-conspirator to the financing of Hamas. As well, Sakr served as the first director and representative of the Muslim World League (MWL), a group that has reportedly been involved in the funding of Hamas, al-Qaeda and other terrorist outfits.
Sakr is the author of the book, ‘Pork: Possible Reasons for its Prohibition.’ In it, he describes Jews as being cursed, monkey-like, filthy and corrupt. He wrote: “It is known that some of the children of Israel regularly disobeyed Allah and as a result, were cursed. Some of them stagnated spiritually and mentally and hence became idol-worshippers; others lost their mission in life as human beings and became entertainers (if such a term is to be used) like monkeys, apes and chimpanzies [sic], and still others became filthy of mind and body, gluttonous eaters of carnivorous animals, and lived totally a corrupted life as swines [sic]”…
