The politicization of sports continues with the Ultimate Fighting Championship featuring Belal Muhammad. Belal Muhammad is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Chicago native, Belal Muhammad supports the “Palestinian Children’s Relief Foundation”. http://pcrf.net/ufc-fighter-belal-muhammad-supports-the-pcrf/
The PCRF worked with the Holy Land Foundation which was shut down in the largest terror financing trial in US history.
“In 1991, the PCRF considered two entities “ASSISTING ORGANIZATIONS”– The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development and Global Relief Foundation — that were closed down by the U.S. government for funding terrorist groups. Another assisting organization, the International [Islamic] Relief Organization, was raided by the FBI, accused of filtering money to al-Qaeda, Egyptian Islamic Jihad and Hamas. The New York Post records that the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) has been named in a lawsuit put forward by the families of the 9/11 victims for having “played key roles in laundering of funds to the terrorists in the 1998 African embassy bombings” and having been involved in the “financing and ‘aiding and abetting’ of terrorists in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.” On its website, the PCRF says it “works with these organizations” and acknowledges their “support and cooperation.””

Belal’s sister works for the “American Muslims for Palestine”, which was formed out of the Palestine Committee, the Muslim Brotherhood Hamas support network in this country. https://www.facebook.com/events/474923915904773/
Many of the members of AMP’s board and leadership have ties to the Islamic Association of Palestine, the Hamas support group started in this country by the Muslim Brotherhood.

“Salah died Sunday of complications from cancer, Dr. Zaher Sahloul, a member of the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview, told the Chicago Tribune. Services were held later that day.
A Palestinian native and U.S. citizen since 1979, Salah was classified as a “specially designated terrorist” by the U.S. Treasury Department in the 1990s. He was imprisoned in Israel for 4 1/2 years after $95,000 was found in his East Jerusalem hotel room that police said was to bankroll terrorism.”
The Muhammad family are Hamas supporters. When he comes out to fight under the Palestinian flag, he is supporting the terror state of ‘Palestine.’ When Bilal Muhammad wears the keffiyeh during his weigh in, he is supporting jihad.
When the Ultimate Fighting Championship promotes Bilal Muhammad, they are mainstreaming jihad.
