Minister of National Defense reaffirms “zero tolerance for anti-Semitism”

The Federal Court of Appeals sided with Minister Kenney’s decision to cut funding to the Canadian Arab Federation (“Federation”) over its promotion of “hatred, anti-semitism and support for the banned terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah”.

The decision, in part, stated (July 24, 2015) that that groups which promote hatred, including anti-Semitism, or excuse terrorism and violence, should not receive any official recognition or subsidy from the state.
