Court upholds withdrawal of funding for Anti-Semitic Canadian Arab Federation

The Federal Court of Appeal has dismissed the Canadian Arab Federation’s (CAF) effort to reverse the federal government’s decision to withdraw funding for the group because of the government’s contention the group is anti-Semitic.

Last year, a Federal Court judge upheld a 2009 assessment by then-minister of citizenship and immigration Jason Kenney, who decided to withdraw more than $1 million a year in federal government funding for the Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) program because the government said the CAF promoted anti-Semitism and supported terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah.


Wanna know how this all started?

    The last sentences in the CJN article are interesting: as soon as the federal funding was stopped, the pro-Hezbollah CAF group dsbanded. Shows how much of the radical Islamist lobbies rely on government funding.

    When Justin becomes Prime Minister, he will reinstate the money because his second top advisor is Omar Alghambra who use to be president of the Canadian Arab Federation.

    So Justin knows the stories about the CAF are all zionist lies!

    • You bet, I also expect to be arrested if either Justin or Mulcair is elected.

    good work, but it’s unfortunately whackamole

    • Very true, but this blog has assisted with CAF’s defunding and that of Pallie House, as well we have put the local Khomeinists under the microscope, causing them to lose the rental of TDSB property to run their jihad madrassa among other small wins.

        I think this is an important blog. Lots of smart people. This blog nudges debates in several areas.

      Playing whack-a-mole can be satisfying and fun when mixed with a real backlash.

    Bravo BCF.
    A tip of the hat and the jar (at a later date).

    I can hardly wait until the CBC covers this story.

    Am I the only one who finds it appalling that this case would even be heard by a court? I must have missed the part of there being a right to government funding in our constitution or Trudeau’s charter. It should have been seen packing from the get-go.

    • Linda1000

      Agree. Not to mention that the case has been winding its way through the court system for six years. Waste of time and expense.

    I remember that original post. BCF gets results!

    Typical pro-Islamist group: “We hate Jews and want Israel gone! Mr. Jewish politician, can we have some federal funds?”
