About a week ago, Iqra Khalid – the Liberal MP behind M-103 – announced that $23 million taxpayer dollars would be going towards the National Council of Canadian Muslims, and the Islamic Relief ‘charity’.
According to a new article by Tarek Fatah in the Toronto Sun, this could be an extremely serious problem.
“The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), a former branch of the U.S. based Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) that was named in 2008 as an unindicted co-conspirator connected to the “largest terror-funding trial in U.S. history. NCCM has denied links to CAIR.
Islamic Relief, a worldwide charity accused of links to Islamist extremism by Middle East Forum, Israel and the United Arab Emirates among others.”
While Fatah notes that “there is no solid record that the Canadian arms of these two organizations have contributed to current problematic behavior,” the potential for danger is still fairly worrying.
For example, he states “In recommending Islamic Relief as one of the recipients of the $23 million fund, Khalid covered up the fact that even Bangladesh, a Muslim-majority country has banned Islamic Relief from providing either relief or aid to some 500,000 Rohingya refugees who have taken refuge in the country.”
