Last week we posted a brief report about how the Wikileaks documents had revealed that in 2006 the US State Department was worried about Shariah banks funneling money to Jihadist terrorist organizations.

The Telegraph has a bit more detail elaborating on that subject:

“…the British Government was aware of “profound shortcomings” in the regulation of charities with links to terrorist groups overseas.”

Stuart Young, a Home Office official, allegedly told US diplomats that the Charity Commission was “completely out of its depth” in how it dealt with groups suspected of funding terrorists. Its officials would have “already trampled over the crime scene” by the time they contacted police, he was reported to have said.
