Islamist activist, sharia-apologist and co-founder of the Women’s March Linda Sarsour is set to be a keynote speaker at several Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA) fundraisers across the country, reported The Blaze.

IRUSA is the American affiliate of UK-based Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW), which has been banned in several countries due to its ties to international terrorist organizations.

There is currently an ongoing federal criminal investigation in the U.S. into Islamic Relief. The investigation was triggered by Clarion Project’s National Security Analyst and Shillman Fellow Ryan Mauro in 2014.  Three different government agencies have already presented strong evidence of Islamic Relief’s terror ties.

Mauro also found that several officials of Islamic Relief USA have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, which the Trump administration may soon be designating as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. For example, the organization’s vice chairman, Hamdy Radwanone, defended the terrorist organization Hamas (which previously declared itself the Palestinian branch of the Brotherhood) as “freedom fighters.”

Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain have all designated the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.  Hamas was designated by the U.S. as a terrorist organization in 1997.

Sarsour previously worked with IRUSA on multiple fundraisers, including several “Promise for Palestine” tours in which she helped raise millions.

Sarsour will start her new IRUSA tour in the Atlanta area, alongside radical New York-based imam Siraj Wahhaj, who Sarsour describes as her “mentor, motivator and encourager.”

Wahhaj is the father of three of the defendants in the New Mexico jihadi cult terror case currently on-going.

In 1992, Wahhaj gave a sermon in which he advocated for armed jihad in streets for the benefit of Islam.

After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, Wahhaj gave a sermon asking the question, “Who are the real terrorists?” He named three entities: The U.S. government, big business and the media.

Sarsour has a long history of radicalism and terror sympathies:
