IRS: We Investigate Pro-Israel Groups for Terrorism Ties
The Muslim groups probably get a pass of course…..
Check it out:
Eliana Johnson of National Review Online reports that Cincinnati-based IRS agent Gary Muthert told the House Oversight Committee that the IRS does, in fact, subject pro-Israel tax-exempt groups to higher scrutiny–by sending their applications to a special IRS unit that investigates them for ties to terrorism.
It is unclear whether the IRS subjects anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian, or Islamic groups to the same scrutiny. However, the revelation could provide a partial explanation of why pro-Israel groups such as Z Street were subjected to excessive inquiry and delay. Johnson notes that, as reported by Breitbart News, anti-Israel groups had been pressuring the Treasury to investigate (only) Jewish charities for assisting beneficiaries in the disputed West Bank–though not even those groups thought to describe such activities as “terrorism.”
