'Canada has revoked the charitable status of a Zionist organization that funneled money to projects supporting the Israeli army.
The Toronto-based Beth Oloth Charitable Organization, a group without an online footprint, “had been a registered charity since 1980 and was one of richest in Canada,” with more than US$45 million in 2017 revenues, according to Canada’s Global News.
It appeared “to be acting as a ‘conduit’ that issued tax receipts to donors in Canada to fund the programs of others,” the report adds.
Beth Oloth funded programs called mechinot that prepare Israeli high school students for military conscription, and which include weapons training, mentoring by Israeli soldiers and visits to army bases.
Using charitable donations to fund foreign militaries contravenes Canadian law.
“It is our position that these pre-army mechinot exist to provide support” to Israel’s army, the Canada Revenue Agency states, and that funds given to these programs “are therefore in support of foreign armed forces.”
The revenue agency “also identified a list of other problems such as funding projects in the occupied territories, which it said was contrary to Canada’s policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” Global News reported.
The revenue agency recently announced it was investigating the charitable status of the Jewish National Fund of Canada after human rights activists filed complaints over the organization’s role in Israeli human rights violations.
Activists say that like Beth Oloth’s scheme, JNF Canada acts as a conduit for its parent organization, the Jewish National Fund, to funnel money donated by Canadians for projects linked to the Israeli army and to support Israeli policies of expulsion, land theft and discrimination.'
