Pakistani Charity Investigated As Possible Funding Source In Bombing Plot

The use of Islamic charities to fund terrorism is a known pattern, so this should come as no surprise.

LONDON British and Pakistani investigators are trying to determine whether the group of Britons suspected of plotting to blow up as many as 10 commercial airliners may have received money raised for earthquake relief by a Pakistani charity that is a front for an Islamic militant group.

The charity, Jamaat ud Dawa, which is active in the mosques of Britain's largest cities, played a significant role in carrying out relief efforts after last October's earthquake in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir.

It is one of the most militant of the groups battling the part of Kashmir controlled by India. In May, it was labeled a terrorist organization by the United States government.
Here in the U.S., the highest reaches of Saudi society, including its vast royal family, have been doing the same thing, and are even using the mechanism to fund to attack free speech.
