Canada’s Appeals Court upholds the Federal Court’s decision in 2014 backing the government decision to withdraw funding from Canadian Arab Federation over its ‘anti-Semitic’ activities, and its support for terrorism.

Canada’s Federal Court of Appeals= has supported the government’s decision to cut off funding for an Arab group accused of supporting terrorism and anti-Semitism.
The minister has pointed to several instances, including rallies organized by CAF in which protesters brought signs encouraging the killing of Jewish children, and an essay contest about how Israel has carried out an “ethnic cleansing.”
CAF then sued the government, insisting that Kenney was abusing his authority and referring to the cut as “a blatant attempt to suppress criticism of Israel.”
The suit was rejected by the Federal Court in 2014 and now the FederalCourt of Appeals. CAF’s lawyer says that they are “seriously considering” appealing again to the Supreme Court.
