Germany cuts funding for Islamic Relief aid group with ties to Muslim Brotherhood

The German government has ceased funding to aid organization Islamic Relief Worldwide over its alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Interior Ministry said in response to a request for information from an opposition party.

A spokesman for the ministry told journalists it had information that both Islamic Relief Worldwide and Islamic Relief Deutschland (IRD) had “significant personal links to the Muslim Brotherhood” or related organizations and affiliates.

The decision to stop donations follows news reports in August that IR’s leadership resigned en masse after the discovery that the aid organization’s new director had labeled terrorists “heroes”.
