One of #Canada #Ottawa's largest mosques loses charity status for promoting ‘hate and intolerance’ via @StewartBellNP

“Many of the views expressed by the organization’s speakers are misogynistic, homophobic, racist and/or promote violence,” the @CanRevAgency Charities Branch wrote in a letter sent to the mosque president.
It means the mosque no longer benefits from the #tax advantages enjoyed by government-registered charities. Foremost, it cannot issue receipts allowing donors to claim their contributions as income tax deductions.
Mosque board members said they were devastated by the decision, which was announced below 👇🏼 The CRA documents (some of which are embedded in the online story) were declassified and released following a request by @globalnews @StewartBellNP

The #CRA documents singled out Abu Usamah At-thahabi, Bilal Philips, Hakkeem Quick and Saed Rageah — all of whom had spoken at the #Ottawa mosque one or more times.
According to the #CRA, At-thahabi has called women deficient, said Christians and #Jews were enemies, spoke about throwing #homosexuals off a mountain and said those who left the #Islamic faith should be killed.
#BilalPhilips has been denied entry to several countries and has been described as “anti-Semitic, intolerant and contrary to integration,” the #CRA wrote.
In a video described in the #CRA documents, #BilalPhilips said #Islam was opposed to #terrorism but “does not shrink from using violence to gain some of its ends, to establish itself in certain areas/to gain control of Muslim lands.”
#AbdullahHakim Quick had “advocated for the Al-Aqsa Mosque in #Jerusalem to be liberated from the ‘filth’ of the Jews” and was condemned by the #NewZealand Broadcasting Authority in 2004 for what was termed “hate speech” towards homosexuals, the #CRA said.
#SaeedRageah runs a #Toronto Islamic centre. The #CRA quoted an Australian newspaper report that said he had been denied entry to the country and “displayed anti-Western and homophobic attitudes.”
