Open Letter to Councillor Sandra Racco, City of Vaughan: Jaffari Centre Concerns

February 27, 2014

Open Letter to Councillor Sandra Racco, City of Vaughan

Re: Thornhill Woods Community Meeting – Lebovic Centre.

I attended the Community Update and Board of Directors Election Meeting on Wednesday February 26, 2014.

During the Q+A, I rose to ask you a question regarding the negative impact on public safety to the existing community which is presented by the proposed Jaffari Centre re-development – a relevant question, which you refused to answer.

Over the past 3 weeks, I have been contacted by many residents of Thornhill Woods who have expressed major concerns about persons from the Jaffari Center blocking driveways and asking residents to use their driveways for overflow parking.  hat was one issue I addressed.

The second issue I asked you about dealt with the anti-Semitic nature of the Jaffari Centre.

You refused to answer my questions.

In refusing to respond, it was suggested that these inquiries were racially motivated and inappropriate.  This is completely untrue, and I consider your response — that as a public official you are limited to issues of “zoning and by-laws”  — to be a deflection of your obligation to properly apprise yourself and understand all the issues that might have a negative impact on the safety and security of our community.

I am deeply concerned that an enlarged Jaffari Centre re-development will lead to a serious increase in antisemitism, and this increase in antisemitism will lead to violence against members of the Jewish community.

Please take the time to review the following information about the Jaffari Center and their associates.

Thank you,

JDL Canada Uncovers Shocking Truth about ‘Educators’ Running the Extremist Thornhill Jaffari Centre

The Canadian Shiite Jaffari Center is the organization proposing a Muslim-only housing development.

In Houston, Texas on January 30, 2011, the Jaffari Centre’s Pakistani born cleric Syed Hassan Mujtaba Rizvi spoke about how much loyalty — he uses the term “affiliation” — Shiite Muslim believers owe to their country of residence, and the relations between religious belief and citizenship.

Here is an excerpt of Hassan Mujtaba Rizvi’s sermon:

“My affiliations are with Iran, because my affiliation with Canada would mean that if in Canada there was something for me to affiliate by, that was given to me by Allah, I should have affiliation with Canada.

“But when I look towards Allah, and I see that He has affiliation with Iran, has no affiliation with Canada with America, I say: I have affiliation with Iran.”

The Jaffari Centre also promotes another radical Islamic leader named Asad Jafri, who they call an “educator of family values.”

At an Al Quds Day rally in Toronto, Asad Jafri said:

“The Zionist regime that sucks the resources, the blood and everything that belongs to all the people across the world…”

The following is a biography of Asad Jafri courtesy of the Islamic Counterterrorism Institute (ICI).   Read it carefully to learn about the background of the people who are educating the Thornhill Jaffari Centre community about “family values”:

NEW revelations about who is backing Thornhill’s proposed Muslim-only housing development

JDL Canada has obtained additional information uncovering the backers of the proposed “MUSLIM-ONLY” re-development of the Jaffari Centre in Thornhill.

Principals and proponents of the Jaffari Centre are busily engaged in damage control trying to persuade municipal legislators and members of the public that they are indeed good neighbours and care for the concerns expressed about their “MUSLIM-ONLY” re-development proposal.

This group which receives funding from Iran is the same group that sponsors “AL QUDS” day — a hatefest openly celebrated annually on the streets of Toronto.  If you have any doubt about that — here is a snapshot of the bus schedule showing the Jaffari Centre as one of the transportation pick up locations:

The Jaffari send their kids to Iran on “school trips”

The ISIJ sends members of its Youth Jamaat on these trips. Below is an excerpt from a report on one of these trips:

“Shehmir presented the speech that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gave at the Conference. Among the statements in his strong speech, President Ahmadinejad spoke about how the West is seeking to sow seeds of discord among regional nations with the aim of saving the Zionist regime. He urged the youth to be wary of such propaganda and self-guard them from these vicious influences.”

“Among his strong statements to the youth, Imam Khamenei said that Marxism and Western Liberal Democracy will not have an appeal and this is evident with the awakening that has taken place in several countries over the last one year. He advised the youth that the awakening is the just the beginning and the youth must remain firm in their objectives of tarnishing the Zionist dreams.”

Here’s a fine example of an indoctrinated 10 year old boy, proudly dressed in Jihadi gear shouting “Israel is a cancer”:
