Canadian judge orders 14 children be removed from Lev Tahor's custody

A judge in Quebec has ruled that at least 14 children in the Islamic-style Lev Tahor cult be taken into state custody:
ST-JÉRÔME — A Quebec Court judge has ordered the removal of 14 children aged 2 months to 16 years from the ultra-Orthodox sect Lev Tahor, to be placed in foster homes.

Judge Pierre Hamel issued the ruling Wednesday night, ordering the children be removed from the community and placed in foster homes immediately, for at least 30 days. He ordered members of the Lev Tahor community to refrain from contacting the children in any way, except for their parents, whose contact will be supervised by youth protection officials. Among the children ordered removed are a 16-year-old girl and her 2-month-old baby.

Each child will be given a full examination by a doctor, and their psychological needs will be assessed. Youth protection officials have alleged extreme neglect and malnutrition, as well as isolation, and a refusal by sect members to adhere to the Quebec curriculum. They claim the children, who are home schooled, are unable to do basic math, and don't understand English or French.

There is a publication ban on evidence presented Wednesday in court.

On Tuesday, a committee in Israel's parliament, the Knesset, heard gruesome details about the conditions in the sect from several former members. The website Behadrey Haredim reported that the hearing was told that children were hit with iron bars, denied food and forced to take psychiatric pills. The committee also heard that the sect achieved compliance by inflicting constant pain, by forcing members to wear shoes smaller than their shoe size. Members also spoke of forced divorce and marriage from the age of 14, involving age gaps, including a 15-year-old boy marrying a 40-year-old woman, and vice versa. The minimum legal age of marriage in Canada is 16.
Disgusting, and lest we forget, as the Winnipeg Free Press notes:
Members of the anti-Zionist group, which opposes Israel and advocates Arab domination in the region, settled in a popular tourist destination in the Laurentian mountains north of Montreal.
At this point, it no longer surprises me that cults this bad could condone a takeover of Israel by Islamofascism. The Montreal Gazette got a letter from a woman who's rightly appalled at the Canadian authorities for failing to enforce immigration laws with the cult's leader, who'd served a prison term in America for kidnapping. I wonder if they were lenient on him out of the same weakness that's allowed Islam to take a foothold in Canada. I hope the children are removed from Lev Tahor's custody already, and will one day tell how glad they are not to be part of that awful, brainwashing clan.
