NGO Funding of Jihad

It is not new news that somestimes Islamic NGOs are used to gather and distribute funds for Jihad. These NGO spend funds on benevolent activities, in support of political activity (elections) and in defending Muslim territory, and in taking territory for Islam - (Jihad).

In fact, The principle of Zakat (alms) may be spent on a number of activities

Here is how it may work:

1. Go to a country with banks who are money-laundering-friendly. Set up an account in the name of an NGO which you register with the state using false or easily varified information.

2. Set up a plane "bill-board" website: publish your account numbers and all wire transfer informaiton in plain site.

3. Pass the link around in Islam-Curious social sites, espcially western sites.
Teach them about the blessings for paying Zakat (see below)

4. Market to Islamic business to pay their Zakat to the site. Note that it is only legitimate Zakat when Ownership of the Zakat is transfered to the receiver.
This means that once they give it, and the gift purifies their earning (Zakat means purity) they believe that they are no longer accountable for how it is spent.-They don't want to know.
5. Transfer the Funds to account 98 like accounts, or into suitcases to send to your favorite arms dealers

I have identified few sites that look like this.

In the interests of not-giving these sites free publicity, I will not list them, but if you are researching this kind of funding, email me and identify yourself clearly I will send you the links.

"The alms are only for the poor and the needy, and those who collect them, and those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free the captives and the debtors, and for the cause of Allah (Note from Smron -This is the Jihad Clause), and (for) the wayfarers; a duty imposed by Allah." -IslamCity

"Economically, Zakaat is the best check against hoarding. Those who do not invest their wealth but prefer to save or hoard it would see their wealth dwindling year after year at the rate of the payable Zakaat. This helps increase production and stimulates supply because it is a redistribution of income that enhances the demand by putting more real purchasing power in the hands of poor."

It can be used forthe following:

1. FUQARA: people who are poor and who possess more than their basic needs but do not possess wealth equal to Nisaab.2. MASAKEEN: people who are destitute and extremely needy to the extent they are forced to beg for their daily food rations.3. AL-AMILEEN: people appointed by an Islamic Government to collect Zakaat.4. MU-ALLAFATUL-QULUB: persons who have recently accepted Islam and are in need of basic necessities who would benefit from encouragement by Muslims which would help strengthen their faith.5. AR-RIQAAB: slaves who are permitted to work for remuneration and have an agreement from their masters to purchase their freedom on payment of fixed amounts.6. AL-GHAARIMEEN: persons who have a debt and do not possess any other wealth or goods with which they could repay that which they owe. It is conditional that this debt was not created for any un-Islamic purpose.
7. FI-SABILILLAH: persons who have to carry out an obligatory deed which has become obligatory on them and subsequently (due to loss of wealth) are unable to complete that obligation. (Note from Shimron -This is the Jihad Clause)
8. IBN-US-SABEEL: persons who are travelers and during the course of their journey do not possess basic necessities, though they are well to do at home. They could
