ISNA Islamic Services of Canada was stripped of its charitable status for “non-compliance”…..Authorities also revoked a related charity, the Canadian Islamic Trust Foundation.
Also to be noted:
The money, raised by the Toronto-based Jami Mosque, was passed to the ISNA Development Foundation “for remit” to the Relief Organization of Kashmiri Muslims (ROKM)…..research indicates that ROKM is the charitable arm of Jamaat-e-Islami.
Questions remain: has Jami Mosque has been fully investigated? Did the leaders of that mosque know that they were really raising money for the charitable arm of Jamaat-e-Islami, the armed wing of which is Hizbul Mujahideen?
This revocation of charity status of these two Canadian Islamic groups marks a step in the right direction, as Canada has a long to do-list in ending Islamic supremacist and jihadi incursion, beginning with more efficient and timely investigations on terror-funding groups:
It’s unclear why the CRA waited three more years before following through with the revocations of ISNA Islamic Services and the Canadian Islamic Trust.
Canada (like other Western nations) also needs to recognize that jihadi doctrines of hate and conquest, and Sharia human rights violations, are being preached in mosques across the country. Accountability — and in some cases arrests — are necessary. A few examples:
Imam Said Rageah at the Abu Huraira Centre was found preaching hate against Christians and Jews.
The resident Imam of Masjid Toronto in downtown Toronto, affiliated with the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), has called for armed jihad and the chopping off of hands for stealing; in 2016, imams at the mosque “recited supplications to Allah in support of the mujahideen everywhere, the total destruction of the enemies of Islam and the purification of Al-Aqsa Mosque from the ‘filth of the Jews.’”
In Saskatchewan, Muhammad Mustafa Mustaan preached that democracy is brutal, evil and not compatible with Islam.
A Quebec Imam preached that “beating [women] in Islam is a type of education.”
London, Ontario Imam Mazin Abdul Adhim — a senior cleric of Hizb ut-Tahrir — called for Muslims to unite and form a global caliphate.
The well-known Canadian imam Syed Soharwardy — frequently deemed “moderate” — declared that Sharia was the solution and the jizya was not discriminatory.
In 2014, the Muslim “charity” known as the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy (IRFAN) was also stripped of its charitable status for funding Hamas, and declared a terrorist organization.
In 2012, the Muslim Youth Group — the World Assembly of Muslim Youth — was found to be tied to al-Qaeda, and also stripped of charity status.
The promotion of the Muslim Association of Canada’s (MAC) “Revolution in Islamic Work in Canada” has also been exposed since 2013, with terrorist charities found to be linked to the MAC.
Far more Islamic organizations need to be thoroughly investigated for terrorism links in Canada and in other Western nations, and not only stripped of charitable status, but outlawed as jihadist/terrorist entities and enemies of democratic states.
