The IRS should follow suit. via Canada: Islamic charity loses status over alleged terrorism links.
TORONTO — The Canada Revenue Agency has revoked the charitable status of an Islamic group after it says it distributed over $280,000 to an agency allegedly linked to a terrorist organization in Pakistan.
The CRA announced Friday it will strip the Islamic Society of North America Canada’s Development Foundation of its charitable status.
After a nearly two-year-long audit of its books, the CRA said it found evidence linking the group to an organization that funds a terrorist organization in Pakistan.
“The government of Canada has made it clear that it will not tolerate the abuse of the registration system for charities to provide any means of support to terrorism,” a press release from the CRA said.
The CRA audited ISNA’s books between Jan. 1, 2007, to Dec. 31, 2009. Transactions during that time showed a “funding arrangement” between the group and the Kashmiri Canadian Council/Kashmiri Relief Fund of Canada.
That group would send money to the Pakistani-based Relief Organization for Kashmiri Muslims, which is the charitable arm of Jamaat-e-Islami, a political organization that supports the overthrow of India’s government through the activities of the Hizbul Mujahideen, the CRA release said.
Hizbul Mujahideen is considered a terrorist organization by the European Union and government of India, the CRA said.
Full statement from The Canada Revenue Agency website. Excerpt below:
Ottawa, Ontario, September 20, 2013. . . The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will revoke the registration of the ISNA Development Foundation, a Mississauga-based charity. The notice of revocation will be published in the Canada Gazette with an effective date of September 21, 2013.
An organization that has had its registration as a charity revoked can no longer issue donation receipts for income tax purposes and is no longer a qualified donee under the Income Tax Act. The organization is no longer exempt from income tax, unless it qualifies as a non-profit organization, and it may be subject to a tax equal to the full value of its remaining assets.
Hamas front CAIR-CAN recently changed its name in an apparent shell game to evade regulators and attempt to hide its notorious terror-linked parent south of the Canadian border (whose parent group is the Muslim Brotherhood).
Read about that here, CAIR-Canada changes name to cover links with Hamas-linked CAIR.
Why won’t the IRS do anything about terror-linked groups like CAIR and ISNA?
For starters, ISNA is Barrack Hussein Obama’s go to Islamic group in the U.S.!!! He Addressed the Convention of Unindicted Co-Conspirator ISNA just days before 9/11/13. He addressed the ISNA conference in 2010 too, and invited ISNA to give prayers at the DNC national convention and his inaugurations. ISNA has been a regular insider of the Obama White House.
