It was very important to establish a JDL presence in Vancouver because of the many anti Israel groups that are active there.
These anti Israel groups in Vancouver have lead campaigns to boycott Israel and have even attempted to block shipping boats from Israel.
A JDL presence in Vancouver will lead a campaign to counter future anti Israel activities.
The latest anti Israel action was a so-called Palestinian Christian group called Sabeel that had a conference in a church to promote the PFLP terror group as a group following in the footsteps of a Palestinian Jesus.
We all stood outside in the rain and cold determined to expose and confront hate, lies and promotion of terror.
Anti Israel groups wrote about our actions in Vancouver:
And the official Anglican Church publication wrote about the event and sided with the anti Israel group:
It is vital that JDL expands into other cities in Canada. The need is urgent. Anti Israel groups are growing and our Jewish leadership is weak.
JDL will fill this void and provide strong Jewish leadership. But in order to be a success, JDL must have your support. JDL now has a presence in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and soon Calgary and Ottawa. Join us and give us your support.
