JNS.org – Hillary Clinton has received an additional $12,061 in campaign contributions from Islamist sources since the Middle East Forum (MEF) released its top-10 recipients of Islamist money list on Oct. 20, the think tank reported.

Clinton was ranked first on the group’s 2015-2016 “Islamist Money in Politics” list of politicians who accepted funds from prominent Islamists with ties to terrorist organizations.

The new figures follow recently released Federal Election Commission filings from August and September.

The Democratic presidential nominee has accepted $53,226 from prominent Islamists, including $16,216 from associates of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a group with “deep ties to the Muslim Brotherhood,” MEF reported. Salam al-Marayati, MPAC’s president, was “kicked off a congressional commission in 1999 when his defense of terrorist groups came to light,” according to MEF.

Conservative independent presidential candidate Even McMullin, of Utah, is sixth on the list with $5,400 in campaign donations from Islamists in August and September.

While the donations are relatively small, the information “holds politicians accountable for accepting funds from soiled sources, signals the Islamist lobby’s affections and intentions and tells voters who takes money from individuals linked to enemies of the United States and its allies,” the MEF explained.
