Thanks to CAABU - the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding - the hard-right Zionist youth group, Betar, has had its charitable status cancelled by the Charities Commission. According to the Jewish Chronicle. they achieved the charitable status back in 1984 because they were "mistakenly registered". The JC. doesn't say whose "mistake" it was. But for twenty years now the group that, by it's own proud admission, introduced the brown shirt uniforms to European political activism "(which, by the way, were worn before one had heard of the German Nazi movement)", has been passed off as a charity by "mistake". Surely someone should answer for that.
