Mohammed and Abdullah Love Them Some Cold Cash

In response to Terrorists are rolling in dough these days:

Our Breitbart amigo, John Hayward posted as story about how
terrorist are rolling in the dough these days.

 

While John is right, these clowns and their jihadist cause
have had access to millions of dollars in foreign aid that has fueled their
hate and caused the deaths of hundreds of innocent civilians.

Even as these foreign countries
indirectly fund terrorist states like Palestine, groups like Al Qaeda are now
reverting to holding kidnapped victims for ransom.

 

While European governments deny
paying ransoms, an investigation by The New York Times found that Al Qaeda and
its direct affiliates have taken in at least $125 million in revenue from
kidnappings since 2008, of which $66 million was paid just last year.

In news
releases and statements, the United States Treasury Department has cited ransom
amounts that, taken together, put the total at around $165 million over the
same period.

These
payments were made almost exclusively by European governments, who funneled the
money through a network of proxies, sometimes masking it as development aid,
according to interviews conducted for this article with former hostages,
negotiators, diplomats and government officials in 10 countries in Europe,
Africa and the Middle East. The inner workings of the kidnapping business were
also revealed in thousands of pages of internal Qaeda documents found by this
reporter while on assignment for The Associated Press in northern Mali last
year.

European
officials are trying to downplay the scope of these ransom payments, while
al-Qaeda bigwigs… aren’t.

Solution: Bullet to the head of all
these clowns. Heck, I’ll settle for a good old fashion carpet-bombing.
