Terrorist Charities

I have frequently discussed how inefficient it is to donate money to a middleman charity, such as United Way, rather than directly to the organizations doing the real life charitable work. Even more important is the fact that those middlemen charities often pass your money on to groups that go completely against your personal beliefs.

A perfect example is PETA, which has been using some of its donations to fund outright violent terrorism. As an IRS certified charity, any political activity is technically illegal. However, with Clinton cronies still in charge of the upper levels of the IRS, there is little chance that they will be punished for this.
