Many people for years have pointed to the liberals residing in Silicon Valley and their efforts on behalf of illegal immigrants, the UN Global Agenda, and even the radicals of the Islamist State. To give them their due, many who have accumulated vast amounts of wealth there have and continue to make a difference in a good many ways that do help to raise some out of starvation and poverty. However, being diligent to oversee organizations donating to their charities and receiving from those charities is also essential.

Muslim Activists Tell Silicon Valley: Stop Funding Hate

Silicon Valley may be wising up to the threat of Islamist terror, but it is simultaneously funding the ideology that spurs this violence – and won’t stop doing so.
The Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) is the nation’s largest community foundation, with assets of over $8 billion. Its corporate partners comprise a list of some of the nation’s most recognizable companies.
This staggering amount of money helps do virtuous work – from millions of dollars for college scholarships to helping end the Ebola crisis in West Africa. But some of SVCF’s grants are problematic.
Two recipients of its largesse are the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Relief, both Islamist organizations with a long history of promoting anti-Semitism, homophobia, misogyny and anti-Western hatred…Since 2008, the SVCF has made eight donations totaling $330,524 to these two groups.
Consequently, five [7 signed] congressmen, led by Representative Gosar (R-AZ), have now written to SVCF, citing CAIR and Islamic Relief’s extremist links, noting their designation as terrorist organizations in the United Arab Emirates, and concluding:
SVCF claims to be a ‘champion of diversity and inclusion,’ yet ignores Islamic Relief USA’s and CAIR’s long history of antisemitism, misogyny, and radicalism. It is inconceivable to us as elected representatives of the American people that SVCF and its donors continue to be associated with such remarks and actions. We urge SVCF to commit immediately to end all donations to these groups. We are confident that there are other organizations worthy of support which better reflect our shared values of religious liberty and tolerance.
Separately, 17 moderate Muslim leaders and activists have also written to SVCF, urging the foundation to stop their subsidy of Islamist organizations. The letter, published at stopsvcfhate.com, explains that such funding serves to help Islamists “demoralize Muslims who want to break away from the system of thought Islamism has set up. They make it systematically harder for Muslims to be part of the solution in carving a new Muslim identity that acculturates and challenges extremism from within.”
The lead author of the letter, Shireen Qudosi, director of Muslim Matters, at America Matters, said: “By funding non-violent Islamists like CAIR and IR, community foundations may mean well but they are disempowering moderate Muslims and giving legitimacy and support to the extremists. CAIR and IR regularly give platforms to preachers whose rhetoric is extremely similar to that expressed by Musa Jibril, the imam who inspired at least one of the London attackers.”
SVCF’s own donors are as problematic as its grantees. In 2015, SVCF received $500,000 from the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), an organization also linked to Islamist extremism.
If Silicon Valley really wants to help Muslims, it will stop funding the networks that underpin Islamist terror. Funding these ideas is utter madness.

Until the State Department, FBI, DoJ, and President Trump decide that these Muslim Brotherhood backed core groups and all of their branches as well as Soros and his tentacles are classified as enemies of the United States, the funneling of funds either from or to these groups will not end.
“Non-violent” extremists may be the label but each of these have in the past, in the present, and will in the future continue their efforts to fundamentally transform our country into a caliphate.
I applaud the efforts of the moderate Muslim leaders who have stepped out in opposition of these radical ideologists. There are a few groups of Muslims who are not part of the larger picture. They are in even more danger than our own citizens in the fight to stop the growth of this cancer within the United States.
That a few congress members are stepping up and attempting to address this in a reasonable approach gives me hope that the constitutionalists and conservatives are having an effect on our legislators such that they are finally beginning to restore some of the damage Obama and his web of anarchists have done over the last eight years and if given an inch of opportunity are planning to do in the future.
