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.

JDL Executive Director Meir Weinstein was attacked just minutes after the JDL arrived on the scene. See the video here.

Despite that, the Jewish Defence League protest continued for 2.5 hours. We never back down. The individual has now been reported to police.

JDL to Confront and Expose pro-PFLP BDS Sabeel Conference: Montreal, August 10

On August 10, 2016, the Jewish Defence League will be returning to Montreal to lead a protest against an antisemitic event organized by the World Social Forum together with the pro PFLP Sabeel gang.

The goal of the event is to have church groups boycott Israel (co-hosts include the Anglican, Presbyterian and United Churches of Canada) and to claim that Jesus was a Palestinian and that the Jewish people have no right to the Land of Israel. The event will also promote the BDS movement and discuss the “resistance to the Empire.”

From the event description:

“Using examples of successful campaigns, Rev. Don Wagner and Rochelle Grause will explain what divestment is, why it is important for the Palestinian liberation movement, how it is done, and how to help your church or denomination to understand and support it. Nora Carmi will also explain why Christians should care about divestment.”

The Jewish Defence League will protest outside the event, providing transportation from Toronto for those who would like to attend the event, and inviting local Montrealers who care enough to stand up to the hate being spewed at the event.

“The Jewish Defence League will counter the antisemitic Sabeel Kairos Conference taking place in Montreal,” said Meir Weinstein, National Director of the JDL in Canada. “It is incomprehensible that at a time when Christians are being massacred in the Middle East, that Israel and the Jewish people are being depicted as evil by these church organizations.”

‘JDL welcomed back to Calgary: Diverse group says ‘Never Again”

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.

‘Fans of Anti-Israeli Terrorism Clash with Jewish Students at York University’ (VIDEO)

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?

Open Letter to the President of York University

Attention President M. Shoukri,

I am very concerned about your recent statement regarding the antisemitic mural at York University.  You have not given any indication that action will be taken to remove the mural. Jewish students have been very vocal that they do not feel safe on campus and the mural is a call for violence.

Please do the right thing and remove the mural.

On January 28, you called for a  “Presidents Advisory Committee on Inclusion”  to be established.  I am very concerned about the composition of such a committee, because in 2009, there was an anti-racism task force created  at York University to deal with similar issues on campus.   And some of the members on that task force were involved in fostering antisemitism on campus.  I sent you a letter back then with details about that task force.   On one such occasion, Jewish students had to be barricaded in a room until police arrived.

According to the “Students United Against Racism” web site, one of the Task Force Members listed was  Ali Mallah and this is how they described him:

“Ali Mallah has served on the Board of Directors of the Urban Alliance on Race Relations for two terms. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Centre for Social Justice (including having served one term as Treasurer). Ali has represented the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Canadian Peace Alliance at International Conferences in the USA, UK and Egypt. He is currently the Ontario Vice-President of the Canadian Arab Federation.”

According to this short bio, Ali Mallah “represented the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Canadian Peace Alliance at International Conferences in…Egypt.” The conference in Egypt was sponsored by the Muslim Brotherhood Organization and reported Antiwar group backs working with Mideast radicals in the Ottawa Citizen May 9 2007:

“Ali Mallah, who represented the Canadian Arab Federation, the Canadian Union of Public Employees and two antiwar groups, said Canadian delegates “made a very important contribution” in Cairo.”

Also, in 2015, a Federal Court judge ruled that the Canadian Arab Federation could reasonably be seen as supporting banned terrorist groups that are antisemitic.

I would like to meet with you to discuss these issues with you.

Thank you,

Meir Weinstein, National Director
Jewish Defence League of Canada
