Austria's Islamic Community says it has revoked the license of a Muslim religion teacher who allegedly gave his students anti-Semitic pamphlets.

The announcement Friday came a day after the Islamic Community suspended the man for allegedly encouraging students to abstain from shopping at businesses he listed as "Jewish."

The teacher in question taught at a regular school in the Austrian capital but has not been identified. He was banned by the Vienna School Authority on Thursday.
