Two Jews Require Your Support

Two Jews were arrested for attending the JDL counter protest at the AIPAC Conference in Washington DC. They face serious charges. They need our financial support to cover legal representation. Please make a contribution today and share this message.

For over 70 years Jews have been saying “Never Again”! And in order to show the world that we mean it, we have established a strong, vibrant and viable Jewish state. Seventy years after the end of the Holocaust the pledge of “Never Again” has been put to the test. Israel is surrounded by enemies on all sides; enemies that pledge to wipe it off the face of the earth. But the biggest test is not the behavior of the enemy but the behavior of our friends. Our closest allies are plotting to undermine our security by allowing our enemies a path to develop a nuclear weapon. They have plotted against us by undermining our sovereignty at the UN.

And they are allowing universities to become hotbeds of anti-semitic activity in the Western World.

On Sunday March 26, 2017, a group of over a thousand professional provocateurs converged on Washington DC to protest an Annual AIPAC meeting. They were given free reign by DC Police. They were allowed to block entrances, spout vile antisemitic speeches and harass convention attendees. They were opposed by a tiny group of Israel allies that roughly amounted to 50 people. DC Police demonstrated remarkable leniency to the aggressive protesters.

One of them was allowed to enter a group of pro-Israel folks and shove a disabled deaf man. Since DC Police was demonstrating a hands-off approach, Jewish defenders took matters into their own hands and fought back. We showed the world that when Jews say “Never Again” – we mean it. It did not end well for the guy who started the confrontation. Unfortunately the story doesn’t end there. This time police decided to intervene.

But they did not intervene to protect a tiny number of Jews. They decided it was time to show who is in charge and who enforces the law. They arrested two people. One was a disabled man who was attacked; the other – a person who was standing a few feet away from the scuffle and had nothing to do with the confrontation except that he was pinpointed by one the “witnesses” on the other side.

Immediately the news broke out about “violent Jewish thugs attacking innocent Palestinian man”. We will address the “innocent Palestinian man” question later.

But the two guys that stood up to a bully are now being charged with assault and a hate crime in District of Columbia.

This is a call for action to all Jews that say “Never Again” to show that we mean it. Please help two of our brothers fight to prove their innocence and against the injustice that is being carried out against them. Donate as much as your generosity allows because it’s not going to be an easy fight. Donate, because we need to show to the world that we don’t leave our brothers and sisters on their own when they risk their life and freedom to protect us.

Thank you all!

JDL Events for the Jewish Community of Amona, Israel (updated)

EMERGENCY EVENT in TORONTO: Sunday December 11

4ef28510-1431-4366-badf-92bbe22c42f0

December 24, 2016:  First Night of Chanukah for Amona
LOCATIONS: Israeli consulate Toronto (CLICK HERE), and Israeli consulate NYC (CLICK HERE)

December 26, 2016:  JDL Chanukah Freedom Party with the Amona Jewish Community LOCATION: Toronto (CLICK HERE)

Amona, a small Jewish community of approximately 40 families near the Jewish community of Ofra north of Jerusalem, is set to be demolished by order of Israel’s “Peace Now” and ultra left leaning Supreme Court.

The technical reason for this is that the community rests on “Palestinian” private property. While it’s true a small portion of the community rests on “Palestinian” land, most of the community does not. The “Palestinian” (who with the help of Peace Now, brought the complaint directly to the Supreme Court), has had nothing to do with the property, as his family abandoned it more than a generation ago. In fact, the property was of no interest to this “Palestinian” until Peace Now (which is funded by the EU) unearthed this fact in a document.

Although Amona is slated for destruction on December 25, a law has been tabled in the Knesset entitled “the Regulation Law” or “Normalization Law.” The purpose of this law is to retroactively legalize any Jewish community that the State of Israel knowingly provided support to in order to grow, even if the community is built on Arab private land. The absentee land owner in each case would be fully compensated. In most societies ,these laws are standard. So why is Bibi Netanyahu so afraid of passing this law?

One word: Obama.

The passage of this law prevents the precedent that the destruction of Amona would bring, which is to destroy the communities of Judea and Samaria through judicial fiat. The Regulation Law also inadvertently applies Israeli sovereignty to large areas of Judea and Samaria. (True it won’t be called this, but everyone knows that’s what it is.)

Bibi has already been informed by the US government and EU that there will be severe punitive measures at the Hague with the passage of this law.  Expect Obama to use the passage of the law to abstain from a UNSC vote recognizing the final borders of “Palestine.” These threats are well known and with 50 days to go, Bibi is just trying to hold out for a new, far more amicable President Trump.

In a perfect world, Bibi would get his way. The law would be pushed off until after January 20, but Amona’s destruction sets a precedent that his party the Likud and Jewish Home have vowed not to let happen. If Amona falls, the collapse of the government is almost certain.  December 25 is the date to watch, but with the first reading of the Regulation Law already finished, with its passing (there are two more readings necessary), the trigger for international measures against the only Jewish state may begin by Hanukkah.

URGENT ACTION: Ontario Legislature votes on BDS, December 1

75a7e782-8fe4-4669-a198-1740aa13ba54On Thursday, December 1st, Gila Martow, Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) for Thornhill, will introduce a motion affirming that the Ontario Legislature rejects the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS).

BDS seeks to isolate and punish Israel – and Israel alone – here in Canada and around the world. The goal of BDS activists is not to promote peace but, by blacklisting Israelis in business, culture, and academia, to challenge the very legitimacy of the Jewish State. In obsessively targeting Israel, the BDS movement is tainted by antisemitism.

While BDS has had little to no economic impact, it has directly fueled hostility toward Jews and Israelis on campuses across Ontario and elsewhere. Far too many students encounter toxic anti-Israel activism on their campus stemming from BDS activities.

Ontario’s elected leaders have already sent a strong message that our province rejects BDS and seeks to strengthen business, culture, and academic ties with Israel – as seen in the Premier’s recent trade mission to Israel. Now the Ontario Legislature is set to reaffirm this principled position through MPP Martow’s motion, which we expect will garner cross-party support.

But we need you to take action to ensure that all MPPs are aware of its importance and will vote in favour of it on Thursday.

CLICK HERE to add your name to those who support the motion, and send a message to Queen’s Park politicians that this motion is widely supported by voters.
