Islamic Relief USA Fundraiser For Yemen With Ilhan Omar Deletes Name Of Jew Killing Advocate Yousef Abdallah From Event

Jew Hating Congresswoman Omar Faces Backlash For Appearence With Terrorist "Charity"
February 12, 2019

MIM: This is the original listing (below) for the event from the IRUSA website which features Yousef Abdallah aka Abdullah as a speaker together with Ilhan Omar. As you can see on the first poster Abdallah's name was scrubbed from the Eventbrite listing after a media uproar which exposed Abdallah's anti semitic proclivities. The original poster with Abdallah and Omar can be seen at the bottom of the page.

...(T)he Middle East Forum's Sam Westrop reportsthat Omar is set to speak Feb. 23 at a fundraiserfor Islamic Relief USA. It is a part of Islamic Relief Worldwide, which allegedly has ties to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Israel and Bangladeshaccusethe organization of helping finance radical groups.

Omar will appear with Islamic Relief USA operations manager Yousef Abdallah, who the Middle East Forum foundhad expressed violently anti-Semitic ideas on his social-media accounts.

One example Westrop cites indicates he and Omar may share similar ideas. Responding to then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's 2014 apology for describing the "occupied" West Bank and Gaza, Abdallah wrote: "Christie kneels down on his knees before the Jewish lords and says 'I am sorry.' Only money makes stuff like this happen. Mr. Christie. Muslims should remember this very well."...


"Abdallah, who serves as Islamic Relief USA's "operations manager,"shared a "very beautiful" modernized version of a Palestinian folk story about a resistance hero named Zharif al-Tawl, who took revenge against Jewish "gangs" that had purportedly attacked a Palestinian village by providing guns to "kill more than 20 jews" and "fire rockets at Tel Aviv."

Other posts referred to Jews as "stinking," and claimed that "the Jews put the outside wall of Al Aqsa [the mosque in Jerusalem] on fire.

Abdallah also "Liked" a comment on his Facebook post that calls on God to wreak "revenge on the damned rapists Zionists. O God they are no challenge for you. Shake the Earth beneath their feet and destroy them as you destroyed" the peoples of ʿĀd, Thamud and Lot."

HT: MEF (Islamist Watch)

Islamic Relief has, however, been banned in both Israel and the United Arab Emirates because of its links to terror. MEF's June 2018 report, Islamic Relief: Charity, Extremism and Terror, confirms its ties to extremism in the West and to terrorism-linked groups in the Middle East.

The new poster for the IRUSA Yemen fundraiser has no mention of Yousef Abdallah



Islamic Relief USA is dedicating Feb 23rd, 2019 to Yemen.

If Yemen was 100 people:

80 need aid to survive
60 barely have anything to eat
58 have no access to clean water
52 have no access to healthcare
11 are severely malnourished

But Yemen is not 100 people. It's 30.5 million people.

And right now, more than 24 million Yemenis are trapped in what's being called the world's "worst humanitarian crisis."

On Saturday, February 23rd, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is coming to Tampa to speak at an emergency benefit dinner for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Can we count on you to also be there?
