Major South African banks are providing a platform for the funding of Hamas, finds a new report from the Jerusalem Post.
South Africa has long been a country that is disturbingly favourable towards ruthless authoritarian regimes like China, Russia, and Iran.
In fact, cozying up to authoritarian states seems to be favourite pastime of the South African government, aside from stunning levels of rampant incompetence of course.
So, to see South Africa do the bidding of the new Axis of China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and the terrorist groups like Hamas and the Houthis that the Axis sponsors, was no surprise.
By falsely accusing Israel of ‘genocide’ at the International Court of Justice, South Africa has sought to distract attention away from Hamas’ genocidal actions, Russia’s escalated attacks on Ukrainian civilians, China’s increasing belligerance towards Taiwan, and Iran’s backing of the Houthis.
At this point, South Africa must be looked at as a ‘useful idiot’ for the authoritarian states, and thus also an enemy of the Western world.
And now, according to a new report by the Jerusalem Post, major South African banks are providing a platform for the funding of Hamas:
“Research conducted by The Jerusalem Post staff and several sources uncovered what appears to be a network of several South African organizations and straw man companies deeply involved with funding Hamas activities through the Al-Quds Foundation, an international group sanctioned by the US and outlawed by Israel, using accounts registered in major local South African banks: Standard Bank, Nedbank, and Absa.
The Al-Quds International Foundation (a.k.a. Al-Quds International Institute or QII) was established in Beirut in 2001 by Hamas members to raise funds for the terror organization through the guise of charity. According to the US Department of Treasury, the Hamas leadership runs all of the foundation’s affairs through Hamas members who serve on the board and other administrative committees, while all documents, plans, budgets, and projects are drafted by Hamas officials. Additionally, several senior Hamas officials, including Specially Designated Global Terrorists Mousa Abu Marzook and Osama Hamdan, served on Al-Quds’ Board of Trustees.
The foundation is part of the extensive network of Muslim Brotherhood affiliated organizations and was chaired until recently by sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, the most prominent Islamic scholar of the Sunni world in the past decades, who was also aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood axis, and who was made notorious in the West for his infamous fatwa (an Islamic legal ruling) endorsing, and commending suicide bombings.”
So, not only is South Africa doing the bidding of the enemies of the West, they may be complicit in financing Hamas, and thus in a way complicit in Hamas’ subhuman attack against Israel on October 7th.
We must realize that not only should we never take South Africa seriously as any kind of honest broker, we should see the current South African government for what they are: A threat to the Western world.
