JDL to protest Roger Waters concerts in Toronto, Montreal and NYC (Sept/Oct 2017)

Musician Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame has been a leader of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign within the cultural arena. He has lobbied countless artists to refuse to perform in Israel, while criticizing others for doing so.

Waters is currently touring to promote his new album. Music is intended to transcend political barriers and promote cultural exchange, pluralism, and diversity. Instead, Roger Waters is promoting hate.

The Jewish Defence League will continue to take action against Roger Waters until he renounces antisemitism in all of its forms, including the unjust boycott of the Jewish state.

JOIN US in Toronto, Montreal and New York City as we protest at venues where Waters is performing:

SEP 11: New York City (Barclays Center)
See this event’s Facebook page for details

OCT 2: Toronto (Air Canada Centre)

OCT 16: Montreal (Bell Centre)

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 members attacked at BDS World Social Forum in Montreal

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.

The JDL protest was covered by the CBC, as well as here and here.

 

 

 

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 action plan against the Green Party Of Canada

The Jewish Defence League will organize our supporters to picket the Green Party of Canada’s convention in Ottawa in August.

The Green Party of Canada has been taken over by hard core Jew haters who want the party to support anti-Jewish policies then introduce them in the House Of Commons.

(Click the links for two examples from the Green Party’s own website, here and here)

The Jewish Defence League will always confront anti Jewish gangs whereever and whenever they appear. We also require and appreciate your monetary support for our campaigns. To protest at the Green Party convention, we need to pay for transportation, hotel accommodations, banners and signs. PLEASE CLICK HERE to donate.
