Jewish Defence League of Canada: Open Letter To Hon. Jason Kenney

To the attention of the Hon. Jason Kenney, MP.:

The Jewish Defence League of Canada has provided the Federal Government for many years with information about many groups in Canada that support Terrorist groups.  On December 23rd, the Federal Court upheld the government’s decision to deny funding to the Canadian Arab Federation (CAF). In his ruling, Justice Russel Zinn stated that “statements and actions…reasonably lead one to the view that CAF appears to support organizations that Canada has declared to be terrorist organizations and which are arguably anti-Semitic.”

Some of the evidence provided stated “The CAF’s vice-president Ali Mullah also attended a conference in Cairo where Hamas and Hezbollah delegates were present”.  The Jewish Defence League of Canada would like to make it clear that this conference was sponsored by the Muslim Brotherhood as reported in May 8, 2007:

“According to conference literature, the main purpose of the gathering, sponsored by the officially banned Muslim Brotherhood and Egyptian opposition parties, was to forge “an international alliance against imperialism and Zionism.”

The Government of Egypt recently listed the Muslim Brotherhood as a Terrorist Group.  The Jewish Defence League of Canada calls on the Government of Canada to also include the Muslim Brotherhood to its list of banned terror groups.

Thank you,

Meir Weinstein
National Director, Jewish Defence League of Canada
