Muslim Aid Australia (MAA) is collecting funds for supplies that are being distributed in Gaza and Lebanon.(see http://www.muslimaid.org.au/)
The Al-Hoda logo is clearly visible on the banner seen in 3 of the 4 photos.
The Al-Huda Development Association appears to have been reported to be affiliated with HAMAS.
The organisation listed at number 22 in the list provided at http://www.intelligence.org.il/eng/finance/bank_ap6.htm, appears to be the same as the Al-Huda Development Association.
Al-Huda Association’s funds at the Arab Bank were frozen by Israeli authorities for terrorism related activities. (see report at http://www.intelligence.org.il/Eng/finance/img/july_12_04.pdf )
MAA is affiliated with Muslim Aid UK, which has been reported to have funded jihadist activities in Bosnia,and to have links to Al-Qaeda.
Muslim Aid has raised funds in Australia for other jihadist organisations.
MAA’s partners in Pakistan include the Al-Khidmat Foundation , an organization run under the auspices of fundamentalist Jamaat e Islami (see http://www.jamaat.org/)
A description of the JEI’s policies by B.Raman can be found at http://www.saag.org/papers/paper76.html.
These policies may be described as fundamentalist and/or jihadists, given their objectives of Muslim rule in all parts of the world and subjugation of non-Muslims under the sharia.
Raman has also described and analyzed links between the JEI and Al-Qaeda ; his article located at www.saag.org/papers7/paper699.html
The JEI’s branch in Bangladesh has been linked to acts of terrorism in that country.
More recently the JEI offered a bounty for the murder of the Danish illustrators who drew cartoons of Muhammad for the Danish daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten.
On Thursday, March 2 , 2006, Liaqat Balooch , president of the Al-Khidmat Foundation, and vice- president of the JEI visited the MAA’s offices in Lakemba, a suburb of Sydney, Australia.
During meetings at the MAA office in Lakemba , Balooch is reported to have discussed the urgent need for funding the Kashmir earthquake relief effort; MAA says that it has already contributed AUD 120,000 to this effort.
In 2002, Pakistan’s Daily Times reported:
Vice president of the Jamaat-e-Islamic Liaquat Baloch stunned the world when he went on the record telling Daily Times shortly after the elections that the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal(the Pakistani alliance of Islamist parties) would seek the release of amongst others Hafiz Saeed , leader of the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
On Wednesday , 23 June 2006, Australia's SBS Dateline’s Ginny Stein reported that the Lashkar-e-Taiba, which has assumed the name Jamaat-ud-Dawa since it was designated a terrorist organisation, has taken over a significant portion of the aid and relief work in the earthquake hit areas.This work includes the setting-up of orphanages cum schools where even English lessons are centered around the theme of dying for Allah.
It is difficult to see how funds from Australia are not ultimately getting into the hands of the Jamaatud-Dawa,or if in fact the MMA/Al-Khidmat are the sole recepients, that their schools would be any different from those run by the Jamaat ud-Dawa.
