Over the last five years, more than a billion dollars has been sent by Canadian charities to Israel. While much of these funds may well go to legit charitable activities, hundreds of thousands of dollars are making their way to support some of the most heinous Israeli organizations out there – some of which are directly complicit in the ongoing genocide.

One Canadian charity, the Mizrachi Organization of Canada, directs its “charitable” funds to Israeli organizations that engage in everything from blocking humanitarian aid trucks from entering Gaza to ethnically cleansing Palestinians within the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is supposed to ensure that these subsidies are going to legitimate charitable activities. They are also supposed to ensure that charities are not violating the CRA’s own rules, not to mention Canadian and international law.

To be clear, the CRA’s guidelines prohibit charitable donations going to a foreign military or to activities that run counter to Canadian foreign policy, such as illegal Israeli settlements.

Yet as we know from our efforts to have the CRA revoke the charitable status of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) of Canada, the government often closes its eyes to such violations and requires a major public push to take any serious action.
