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.

‘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

Join the JDL campaign against York University

e432986c-4546-42dc-a3c1-af1713099f5fTwo weeks ago JDL confronted calls for the murder of Jews at the University of Toronto:

Every campus in Canada has anti Israel student groups that spread fear and support for terror groups, such as Hamas.  Just last week, the University of Toronto hosted an event that openly supported the current violence against Jews in Israel.

And to the credit of the JDL, the event was stopped.

York University has a collaboration agreement with Al Quds University which glorifies terrorists that murder Jews in Israel. The Jewish Defence League will start a campaign against York University.

fed69c19-bbeb-4bc5-ad84-53bc089fda2cJoin the JDL campaign to have York University cut its ties with Al Quds University.

York University has allowed calls to murder Jews. There is a large mural displayed in the main Student Building at York University that calls for violence.

There is an active group on campus called the “Students Against Israeli Apartheid” that fully supports “the popular resistance” which according to Arab leaders in Israel means the “knife intifada” — in plain terms; stabbing Jews; driving vehicles into Jews; shooting Jews.

According to the Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, between September 13, 2015 – January 2, 2016, 27 Israelis have been killed and 279 wounded — 25 of them seriously.

This new wave of Palestinian terrorism included 100 stabbings, 37 shootings and 22 car rammings in addition to firing rockets (from Gaza), detonating explosive charges,
and many hundreds incidents of stone throwing and firebombings.  Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs added, “the current wave of terrorist attacks is part of the PA’s strategy of “popular resistance” (i.e., popular terrorism) adopted by the PA and Fatah at the Sixth Fatah conference in August 2009.”

On February the 4th, Students Against Israeli Apartheid will have another anti Israel event — and this time it will be confronted by JDL.

JDL will hold a protest at York University that same day, February 4, to start our campaign to stop incitement to murder Jews:

Why JDL Canada supports Im Tirtzu (VIDEO)

Right-wing NGO Im Tirtzu has been embroiled in controversy recently after launching a campaign that exposed 20 Israeli NGOs that it alleges are involved in anti-Israel activity and receive funding from European governments, including Breaking the Silence, New Israel Fund (NIF), Rabbis for Human Rights, +972 Mag, and several others.

A video (see below) released by Im Tirtzu last week called The Foreign Agents – Revealed! depicts a Palestinian terrorist stabbing the viewer, claiming that Israeli leaders of human rights organizations are “moles” that work with foreign countries against Israel’s counter-terrorism agenda. The video accuses the Israeli activists, saying they “fight us while we fight terror,” and calls on viewers to sign a petition to outlaw the 20 organizations.

The JDL supports Im Tirtzu and calls on all our supporters to also support Im Tirtzu.

The issue is very clear. There exists today traitors that seek to defame the one little tiny successful Jewish State and at the same time, give a pass to radical Islam.

The Jewish Defence League also calls on the Canadian Jewish News to stop giving space to traitors. The NGOs that are referred to in the article label the IDF as war criminals and promote a boycott of Israel.

They also call Israel an Apartheid State. It is these NGOs that practice incitement against Israel. ARZA Canada should be ashamed of supporting such anti Israel NGO’S.

JDL Canada confronts returning Gaza boat terror supporters at Pearson Airport (video)

Eye on a Crazy Planet reports:

There were two Canadians among the activists on the latest “Sea Hitler boat” trying to break Israel’s embargo of the terror group Hamas in Gaza.

Two narcissistic Canadian clowns pretending to be “human rights activists,” Kevin Neish and Robert Lovelace, were detained and promptly deported by Israel.

They were greeted by two groups when they disembarked in Toronto. Sea Hitler supporters like David Heap and Khomeinist al Quds day hate-fest speaker Sandra Ruch were there to press their blubber against the returning fanatics, and some angry Jewish Defense League members also were there to confront them.

Video, discussion on ‘replacement theology’: Monday, March 16

Toronto, Ontario

There is a growing organized attempt to undermine and damage current Christian support for Israel.  This campaign is spear-headed by the same coalition of far-left fringe groups that promote the now debunked Israel Apartheid Week and further give support to the atrocities committed in the name of radical Islam — namely, the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East.

Their hatred for Israel is so intense that they turn a blind eye to the plight of their fellow Christians who are being mercilessly massacred by crazed Islamists.

This movement is known as “Replacement Theology.”  It preaches that the Jewish people are a cursed nation and that their church represents the “new Israel”.  They proclaim that Jesus was a Palestinian and not a Jew.

JDL Canada plans to counter protest and expose their upcoming event in Vancouver.

On Monday, March 16, at the Toronto Zionist Centre, we will show a video explaining what their plans entail and then form an action plan to counteract this anti-Semitic movement.

Please attend and share this event.
