The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is the largest Muslim organization in North America. It has key connections with members of the Obama administration and is frequently cited by the media as representative of the Muslim community.
Many people recall that ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial–the largest terrorism financing prosecution in US history. When ISNA sought to have that label removed in federal court in New Orleans, the court refused and maintained that the unindicted co-conspirator label was indeed justified.
Now, ISNA’s Canadian wing is suspected by Canadian authorities of funding Jihadist terrorism in Kashmir…
Money raised by an Islamic charity created to help Canada’s poor and needy instead went overseas, potentially into the hands of violent militants, a government audit has found.
The federal charity watchdog is now threatening to revoke the charity status of Mississauga’s ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Development Foundation.
A Canada Revenue Agency audit revealed the foundation shipped more than $280,000 to a Pakistan-based agency, cash the government fears went to supporting the Hizbul Mujahideen — a militant group that seeks the secession of Kashmir from India.
