Canadians for Israel’s Legal Rights
Toronto’s Beit Zatoun is a nerve center for anti Israel incitement. Beit Zatoun receives support from many Jews on the far left that support all or certain aspects of boycotting Israel.
And those far left Jews will be having a so-called “Liberation” Passover Seder at this BDS nerve center on Thursday, April 28.
Present at this event will be Ken O’Keefe.
Beit Zatoun describes Ken O’Keefe this way:
An ex-U.S. Marine, he renounced his U.S. citizenship out of disgust at the American empire’s carnage. He was a founding member of the Human Shield Action to Iraq (2003). He served as captain on the first Free Gaza Mission (2008) and survived the Israeli attack on the ship Mavi Marmara (2010).
His style of activism is characterized by his involvement in disarming two Israeli commandos as nine of his fellow Mavi Marmara passengers were executed. The Israeli military later claimed O’Keefe was a “terrorist operative of Hamas.” O’Keefe has repeatedly stated that Israeli Mossad and its assets, along with traitorous elements within the USA, are directly responsible for the “false flag” 9/11 attacks.
Ken O’Keefe refers to Jews as “those fucking Jews”:
JDL will confront this BDS Nazi lover that evening, between 6pm and 7pm.
Beth Zatoun is located at 612 Markham Street, one minute from Bathurst subway stop on the Bloor line (use Markham Street exit)

It has come to the attention of the Jewish Defence League that the New Israel Fund of Canada has involvement with the NGO “Breaking the Silence.”
This NGO is under investigation by the Government of Israel for charges of gathering IDF Classified Information. The President of the New Israel Fund in Canada is Joan Garson. Please review the following information:

I received this from the New Israel Fund. I’m in the middle of reading the book, Our Harsh Logic. It’s a difficult read, as all the names are excised, so it’s just an anonymous soldier saying “We did this” for a page to 5 pages, over and over for 400 pages. Even so, it’s an extremely important document of the Israeli army’s activities from the inside, and particularly the references to soldiers harassing and arresting civilians, then seeing it reported in the newspaper as “4 terrorists apprehended” and “weapons found,” etc – I would highly recommend it – I got my copy from the Winnipeg Public Library, hopefully it’s similarly available in Toronto. And I’d think a talk with one of its (authors? organizers?) would be very interesting.
Note: the event is in someone’s home, but it is a public event. I checked with Atarah.

Subject: Breaking the Silence in Toronto
I hope you’re all well.
I’m writing to you about an event happening in Toronto on Monday, October 14 that I felt you should know about.
Dana Golan from Breaking the Silence (Shovrim Shtikah) will be in Toronto to speak about BTS’s new book, Our Harsh Logic.
While this is not an NIFC event, I think it would be a great opportunity to discuss the sensitive issues at hand and to hear from this transformative activist and educator. Here are the details:
When: Monday, October 14, at 7:30PM
Where: The home of Joan Garson and David Baskin,
If you need more information about the event, please contact Isaac Kates Rose at isaackatesrose@…
All the best,
About BTS and the book:
Breaking the Silence is an organization of veteran combatants who have served in the Israeli military since the start of the Second Intifada and have taken it upon themselves to expose the Israeli public to the reality of everyday life in the Occupied Territories. They endeavor to stimulate public debate about the price paid for a reality in which young soldiers face a civilian population on a daily basis, and are engaged in the control of that population’s everyday life.
Israeli soldiers, the young men and women in the army, know the truth of the occupation better than anyone-they are the people who carry it out. Now, in a monumental book of collective testimony, OUR HARSH LOGIC: Israeli Soldiers’ Testimonies from the Occupied Territories, 2000-2010 the soldiers speak out and demand to be heard. The soldiers in OUR HARSH LOGIC have gone on the record with their personal experiences to break what they call a conspiracy of silence across Israeli society and to fulfill a moral obligation. Speaking with undeniable authority, they have made a supremely significant contribution to one of the world’s most vexed and intractable conflicts.

standing to groups that promote anti Israel groups such as the NGO
“Breaking The Silence”
Salomon Benzimra passed away on a flight back to Canada from Israel. He was a dear friend of the JDL and many others. The funeral will be on Thursday at Steeles Memorial.
Salomon Benzimra has led a fascinating life. He was born in 1943 in the International Zone of Tangiers (now Morocco) which was a refuge for many cultures. His early education was in French schools, but his family was Spanish-speaking. In fact, his distant ancestors lived in Spain during the 1400s and were among the many who crossed the Straits of Gibraltar to escape the Inquisition. In addition to French, Spanish and English, Salomon also read Hebrew, and read and spoke a bit of Arabic.
He studied chemical engineering in France and worked in Morocco and Montreal before moving to Toronto in 1976. He became involved in Israeli and world affairs after 9/11 and began writing for publication.
With Goldi Steiner he founded Canadians for Israel’s Legal Rights (CILR), comprising a group of dedicated volunteers based in Toronto.
CILR has recently published, in Kindle format, The Jewish People’s Rights to the Land of Israel by Salomon Benzimra. This e-book is available on Amazon, and details the momentous decisions made at the 1920 San Remo Conference after the Ottoman Empire lost all its territories in the Middle East; decisions made in San Remo are crucial to understanding the present situation in the Middle East. Although suitable for any mature reader, the book was written specifically to prepare Jewish high school students to defend themselves against the defamation, lies and distortions about Israel that many face in university. The book is fact-based and educational, not political, and it debunks the current perception of Jewish Israelis as occupiers and settlers.
Sheila Gunn Reid reports for TheRebel.media:
There are two things that are so profound about the group of people bringing the JDL back to Calgary. The first was that they aren’t all Jews.They are people from different faiths, and diverse backgrounds who all support the right of the Jewish state to exist and they are willing to fight anti-semitism wherever they find it. Secondly, this is a group who aren’t waiting around for someone else – or the government – to solve their problems.
To the attention of the Honourable Minister For Public Safety, Ralph Goodale:
It has come to the attention of the Jewish Defence League of Canada that an Ottawa based organization with charitable donation status, Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East, is asking Canadians to damage sales of Israeli products that are sold in Canada.
This BDS group has stated: ” CJPME’s campaign invites Canadians from across the country to sign up for a packet of free ‘Boycott Israel’ sticky notes. CJPME invites Canadians to go to local stores and post these on Israeli merchandise, thus warning potential buyers against buying products from Israel.”
The Jewish Defence League of Canada is calling on your office to advise the RCMP to enforce the law. Conspiring with other groups and persons to willfully damage business premises and impeding people from carrying on normal business — together with the new form of antisemitism — must be stopped.
The Jewish Defence League will also be advising the Canada Revenue Agency of the above.
We hope that your office will see fit to take necessary action to correct this situation.
National Director, Jewish Defence League of Canada

Meir Weinstein National Director of the Jewish Defence League is returning to Calgary with other JDL members to establish a branch in Calgary:

Stay updated at the Facebook page for this meeting.
The JDL has not been to Calgary since the late 1980s when it helped shut down the Aryan Nations compound. Today, radical Islam is a threat to Calgary, Canada and the world, as seen in this video:
The JDL is working with other groups to establish a coalition to defeat this threat to our way of life.
Our friend Blogwrath attended the JDL’s protest at York last week.
He has an in-depth report at this website, including analysis and background of some of the key anti-Israel event organizers.
Here’s an excerpt:
Despite the opposing voices of anti-Semites, modern Jewish kapos and well-meaning but misguided people, the protest materialized.
A few JDL-Canada members and supporters made their point at the entrance of YU near the end of the park. Others managed to go inside and witness the rally at the food court. It was protected by plenty of campus police that closed the entrances and virtually isolated the fast food joints in the area (that’s fine, the York University students are against capitalist profits anyway).
When the Jews lost patience and raised their voices, the security (uniformed and plainclothes) did their best to keep them silent. (…)
Jews have donated countless millions of dollars with the hope that they support a high institution of learning. The reality is that they have financed a hostile anti-Canadian place which more and more resembles Saudi Arabia. After the protest, CIJA, the organization that claims to represent all Jews in Canada, stated that the anti-Israeli activities in Canadian universities are “marginal”.
If you consider marginal the event you just read about, supported by all major YU student organizations and strongly tolerated by the administration, you should consult your psychiatrist as soon as possible.
Isn’t is time to stop and ask: is this the kind of university anyone in his right mind would support?
