The clean-up effort is still underway in the northeast, where Hurricane Sandy unleashed its imprint of death and destruction. A number of highly-rated charitable organizations have sent out relief workers to the area to help with things like food, clothing, shelter and medical treatment. Yet another group, ICNA Relief, is in town claiming to assist in the effort and asking for donations. Their donations have reached terror-related groups in the past, so their motives concerning Sandy need to be questioned.
ICNA Relief is a function of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). The organization has two separate headquarters, one based in the United States and one based in Canada, respectively ICNA Relief USA and ICNA Relief Canada.
From June 2006 through June 2007, the al-Khidmat Foundation (AKF), a Pakistani charity run by Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), listed both the US and Canadian ICNA Relief groups as its top two donors. JI is the South Asian division of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB).
