Omar’s family gets donations

Muslim Community Donates $87,000 To Family of Orlando Shooter

By George Drivas – June 24, 2016 | Associated Media Coverage

According to several recent reports, the Muslim community has made a donation in excess of $87,000 to the family of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.

It’s currently unknown how the funds will be distributed, however it’s been said that the majority of the $87,000 will be allocated to Omar Mateen’s widow Noor Salman and father Seddique Mateen. Sources indicate that the remaining funds will be distributed among Omar’s siblings. Prior to distributing the donation, the Mateen family is expected to provide Omar with a ‘proper Islamic funeral’.

The whereabouts of Omar Mateen’s widow Noor Salman are currently unknown and cause for controversy as rumors of her potential grand jury indictment in connection to her husband’s June 12th shooting spree circulate…/

Hamza Aadil Malak made the following statement during his interview with Crane:

“Though we condemn the actions of Omar Mateen and will continue to stand with the victims of this unexpected tragedy, we must also stand with the members of our community. The family (of Omar Mateen) are unfortunately victims to this tragedy by association and the support we provide will be unwavering during this difficult time.”

So must stand up for the family of Omar after gunning down 100 people, killing 49. That is worthy of “unwavering support.” And that is standing with their [Muslim] community?

Message received. But Islamophopbia is the problem.

I’ve had it with the anti-Islamophobes.

IPT Exclusive: Document Reveals Omar Mateen’s Father Tied to Radical Islamist Groups

by Abha Shankar
IPT News — June 20, 2016

The father of Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen has longstanding connections to prominent Islamist groups in the U.S., a document discovered by the Investigative Project on Terrorism shows. Seddique Matin is listed as president of a then-new American Muslim Alliance (AMA) chapter in Fort Pierce in a July 1997 announcement archived by the IPT.

The AMA sponsored several radical conferences in the U.S. and its leader, Agha Saeed, has spoken in defense of convicted terrorists, including Aafia Siddiqui (a.k.a “Lady al-Qaida”), Palestinian Islamic Jihad board member Sami Al-Arian, and Pakistani intelligence lobbyist Ghulam Nabi Fai.

The Fort Pierce chapter is among 10 new AMA chapters opened, the announcement in an AMA bulletin says.

In its posts, the AMA refuses to consider any Islamist motivation for the attack and lays the blame for Omar Mateen’s massacre which killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub solely on the country’s lax gun laws.
