Interpal is listed by the US Treasury as a SDGT, or "specially designated global terrorist" organization..@ChrisGunness talking about little Mohammad, who was blinded when an Israeli shell hit his home in July 2014 #Gaza pic.twitter.com/5L2OwcEhO9— Interpal (@InterpalUK) October 26, 2015
The UK does nor designate the organization as such, but Gatestone Institute had an article last year that detailed the current ties that Interpal has with Hamas:
The rest of the article is just as enlightening.[Interpal] is, for example, presently supporting the Gaza-based Al Falah Benevolent Society, which, according to the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Centre, is one of "Hamas's charitable societies." The director of this Interpal partner-organization is Ramadan Tamboura, whom Ha'aretz newspaper describes as "a well-known Hamas figure."
Interpal partner Ramada Tamboura with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.Ibrahim Hewitt, one of Interpal's trustees, advocates the killing of apostates and adulterers, and demands that homosexuals suffer "severe punishments" for their "great sin." Members of Interpal's staff refer to Hamas terrorists as "martyrs" and publish notes on social media in support of Hamas' leaders.
It is Interpal's other trustee, however, who fully reveals the charity's true colors. Essam Yusuf (also known as Essam Mustafa) manages on behalf of Interpal an aid convoy program called "Miles of Smiles," which supplies the Hamas regime's welfare programs in Gaza. To manage these convoys, Essam Yusuf works closely with Ahmed Brahimi, an Algerian national and Hamas activist, who recently wrote in response to the recent murder of five Israelis at a Jerusalem synagogue that, "God is most great... God be praised for the martyrdom operation in Jerusalem and news of the state of the killed and injured... God is Most Great and God be praised."
Essam Yusuf is regularly photographed with Hamas leaders in Gaza who welcome each convoy with a ceremony and series of celebratory events. Oborne notes, in fact, that, "In late 2013 [Yusuf] was attacked by the media for appearing in a video next to Hamas leader, Ismail Haniyeh, appearing to participate in an anti-Israeli song that praises Hamas' military wing, Al Qassam Brigades, and martyrdom."
Interpal trustee Essam Yusuf takes his place on Hamas leader's right hand.
Interpal also gives lots of money to UNRWA, so UNRWA is literally accepting funding from organizations with terror ties.
