Atlas Shrugs exclusive: Bogus Islamic charity exposed

I promise not to use to use the word "madrassa" in this post.

Pamela and Julie at the Pajamas blog Atlas Shrugs, in an exclusive story, have uncovered a bogus Islamic charity.

An excerpt from that blog:

NISA [North American Islamic Shelter for the Abused] is a non-profit organization [charity] of the parent Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), established as a [fundraising] vehicle towards alleviating issues related to abuse and domestic violence. Our mission is to help men and women achieve domestic harmony and a happy family life in the SF Bay Area

But NISA, the North American Islamic Shelter for the Abused, doesn't exist. After exhaustive investigative efforts, we find NISA is a shell. A cellphone. An 888 number that is not answered but several cell phones. There is no Islamic shelter for abused women (wife beating, btw, is in the Koran) has no shelter and offers no services other than referral to government shelters.

So what exactly are they raising money for? In an ATLAS EXCLUSIVE, covert Atlas operative Julie blew the lid right off what appears to be a bogus Islamic charity.

Although NISA has does have a website.
