Nothing new there Mr D. They also finance the "Enemy Within" in this country.

How soon people forget. This would be the same US that had thousands of people financing the IRA so they could bomb us.

And no, I don't think what the Iman etc did was right and if proved guilty they should be sent back to Pakistan.

You can't be too careful with the financing of terror laws Sad . Suppose you make a donation in good faith to, say, the Red Cross, who parcels some of your money out to the Red Crescent, who gives money to a host of smaller agencies. It later turns out one of these charities was a front funneling money to Al-Qaeda. By law YOU are responsible for tracking where your money goes, and in theory, YOU could end up in Guantanamo for your efforts Exclamation

Short of actually being on the board, it is VERY hard to get detailed and specific information about how large charities spend their money. They are far less accountable than the equivalent size publicly listed business or government agency.

As far as legally covering your proverbial against the relevant US and international laws go, I'd do the following.

Send a letter [details below].
Retain a copy of the letter you sent as well as any replies be they letter or electronic, with a note of the date sent/received.

Dear John,
Community members are increasingly worried by stories of charity funding being siphoned off by extremist groups. Please detail the fiscal practices of your organization and the safeguards in place to prevent such an occurrence. Do you transfer funds to smaller local organizations- If so may I please have a list of them?
Your Very Generous Donor,
etc


That should suffice for due diligence, it's up to you whether you want to do the extra legwork finding out about the smaller charity groups, should they send you a list.

Certain people in the charities use the following argument: "Well the Taliban/whoever controls that area and our volunteers aren't safe there, so it's better to dump the supplies at a Taliban/whoever collection point than the people in that area to go without. Their local agents assure us the supplies reach the people they're meant for and we've heard anecdotally this is true".
