East Orange City is in Collusion with
the Islamic Circle for North America (ICNA)

Editorial by Jim Gerrish

Last August, I reported on the connection between the Islamic Circle for North America (ICNA), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the City of East Orange. It's happening again this August.

The above advertisement is posted on the City's Facebook Page. As soon as I saw it on 8/04/16, I posted a comment on the page about the City using taxpayer money to pay Zakat to ICNA. For those who don't know what Zakat means:

In the Islamic world “zakat” (religious tithing) is considered a religious obligation. Islamist terrorist organizations often raise funds through charitable organizations by exploiting the tenet of zakat through fundraising apparatuses that provide a ready source of income generated from religious or ethnic communities with ties to the Middle East. Although Islamic charities serve many legitimate purposes, in many places a lack of transparency, oversight, and financial controls fosters an environment allowing terrorist groups to divert funds raised in the United States, Europe and elsewhere and use them for illicit purposes.Source: http://www.osenlaw.com/content/how-terrorists-move-funds-through-global-financial-system

The City of East Orange obviously knew exactly what I meant because my comment was erased and I am now banned from entering further opinions on the City of East Orange's Public Facebook Page, which is paid for in part by my own taxes. To me, that means the City of East Orange is in Collusion with ICNA and is trying to keep this connection secret from the taxpayers; otherwise they would have given an intelligent response to refute my statement rather than just make it "disappear" and ban me from future comments. So much for Lester Taylor's frequent promises of "transparency and accountability."

In the poster above, I have red-circled the reference to ICNA that is in the lower right corner. For those who don't know about ICNA:

According to The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch (GMBDW)
as of June 2, 2016:

The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is a part of the US Muslim
Brotherhood and considered to be closely tied to the Jamaat-e-Islami
organization of Southeast Asia, itself allied with the Global Muslim
Brotherhood. ICNA is particularly close to the Muslim American Society
and the two organizations have been holding joint conferences in recent
years. The MAS was identified in a Hudson Institute report authored by
the GMBDW editor as a part of the US Muslim Brotherhood and closely
tied to the Egyptian organization.
