Canada was the first nation in the world to make multiculturalism a national policy and this policy has been impoverishing and endangering Canada and Canadians ever since. The problems caused by Canada’s importation of the followers of dodgy ideologies such as Islam are starting to impinge on the lives of ordinary Canadians and the situation has got worse. Now it seems that some of Trudeau’s Islamic pets are not only creating problems for Canadians but are also allegedly funding genocidal Islamic thugs such as Hamas via third party Islamic charitable organisations.
According to a Canadian news outlet, Global News, the suspicion that a Vancouver Islamic group may have been helping to subsidise dodgy Muslim organisations came to light when auditors from the Canadian government investigated the Islamic Society of British Columbia. They not only found evidence that the society was influenced or controlled by a middle east organisation with terrorist connections but also uncovered data that showed that some of the organisation’s cash was being spent on personal items for the management of the Islamic Society of British Columbia.
The Global News site said:
A charity that runs a Vancouver-area mosque has been penalized by federal regulators after an audit found its former president and imam spent tens of thousands of dollars on personal purchases including a spa, jewellery, video games and hair dye.
The Canada Revenue Agency audit of the Islamic Society of British Columbia also alleged the charity was “controlled or influenced” by a Qatar organization accused of supporting terrorism, although that did not result in a penalty.
The Islamic Society operates the Masjid Al-Hidayah and Islamic Cultural Centre in Port Coquitlam, B.C., and was formerly headed by Saadeldin Bahr, who is now serving a 3-1/2-year prison sentence for a 2013 sexual assault at the mosque.
CRA documents obtained by Global News allege that during the period covered by the audit — Oct. 1, 2010 to Sept. 30, 2013 — Bahr made purchases with his personal credit cards and reimbursed himself with online bank transfers from the charity accounts.
It certainly seems as there may not have been effective financial control or record keeping at The Islamic Society of British Columbia at the very least. However it is the connection with the Eid Foundation that will worry many.
Global News added:
The audit documents released by the CRA further said the Sheikh Eid Bin Muhammad Al-Thani Charity Foundation (Eid Foundation) in oil-rich Qatar had “maintained some level of control or influence over the affairs” of the B.C. charity.
“The organization’s connection to and possible control by the Eid Foundation is particularly concerning given that publicly available information … indicates that the Eid Foundation is alleged to have provided support to terrorism,” the CRA Charities Directorate wrote.
“Our research indicates that the Eid Foundation is a member organization in the Union of Good, a global coalition of Islamic charities operated by Hamas, a listed terrorist entity in Canada,” read the letter.
This seems extremely dodgy and is all too similar to other cases where Islamic community groups and charitable organisations have connections with other entities that are shall we say less than savoury. I must admit it makes me very uneasy to see an Islamic organisation that not only has questionable financial record keeping arrangements but also is linked, although at one remove, from the genocidal murderers of Hamas.
The Islamic Society of British Columbia have been penalised for the fiscal irregularities but not for the dodgy connections to the Eid Foundation.
Global News continued.
In May, the CRA said in a “Notice of Penalty” letter that while it had initially proposed a $126,000 penalty for Bahr’s spending, it had decided not to follow through after the Islamic Society said it would remove him from the board and improve its internal controls, financial oversight and record keeping.
But the CRA did impose a $9,000 penalty against the charity for issuing $182,000 worth of donation receipts that were deemed “not compliant.” The letter said the penalty could be paid to another registered charity.
No penalty was imposed in relation to charity’s “relationship” with the Qatar group. The Islamic Society’s lawyer, Sebastian Elawny, said the CRA had found no wrongdoing and was satisfied with the charity’s reply to the allegations.
There seems to be something awfully wrong about what is going on in British Columbia’s Islamic organisations with senior officers being involved in sex crime, connections to terrorist organisations and fiscal irregularities. I can’t help but think that if this is the sort of thing that is going on in high profile Canadian Islamic organisations then how much worse must things be in the more low profile Muslim organisations? The question of how many Canadian Islamic groups are involved with Islamic extremists or who may be misusing public and private funds is because of the British Columbia case a very valid one.
