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.

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:

JDL Canada to picket Toronto JSpace Conference: Oct 6

On October 6,  JSpace Canada is hosting a conference in Toronto entitled “For Israel’s Sake: Raising the Voice of Progressive Zionists in Canada.”

On Sunday, October 6, between 9:30 am and 11:00 am, the JDL will picket outside the University of Toronto Multi-Faith Centre at 569 Spadina Avenue. (Look for the sign “Koffler Centre” over the door.)

We invite all our supporters and friends of Israel to join us.

The JDL is protesting the participation of the Israeli Consulate General, who will give the opening remarks (9:30 am) at this pro-European Union “boycott Israel” conference.

Also, many of the other speakers of this conference have a history of giving legitimacy to leaders of Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah support groups in Canada.

The policies of JSpace are the same as the anti Israel policies of the European Union which is to boycott Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria. And that policy is counter to the policy of the Government of Canada and the Government of Israel.

All participants of the JSpace conference are giving legitimacy to the European Union’s policy.

Closing remarks for this pro European Union Boycott Israel Conference will be made by Peter Beinhart, whose ideas about Israel have been called “follies and illusions” by author Ron Radosh, who writes:

“[Peter Beinhart]  is quickly becoming the poster boy for the anti-Israel movement. (…)

Pretending to support a two-state solution, Beinart advances his thesis that Israel’s pro-settler policy is the reason that Palestinians have turned against the Jewish state. Of course, if the current settlements were the cause of their hatred of Israel, he would have to explain why throughout the decades they have consistently turned down every offer made by Israel that would have led to two states, one Jewish and one Palestinian.

And he would have to explain why, from day one of Israel’s creation, the Arab states and the Palestinian residents, led by the Nazi ally Grand Mufti Haj Amin el-Husseini, pledged to oppose the Jewish state to the last drop of their blood. In their eyes, any amount of territory given to the Jews was a settlement that had to be destroyed.

To advance his agenda, Beinart now argues for a strategy of boycotts and disinvestment not in all of Israel, but just in products coming from Jewish settlers who live anywhere in the West Bank. Of course, such a boycott could never work, and no one but Beinart favors it. It would quickly become a boycott of anything made in Israel, since no one buying any Israeli products in fact knows where it is made in Israel and by whom. It also legitimizes the very idea of boycotting Israel, but this time to be carried out in the name of saving Israel from itself.

This is, to use a Jewish term, a good example of chutzpah gone wild.

David Horowitz: Hillels acting like ‘ghetto Jewish councils’ who collaborated with Nazis

Each year, Hollywood screenwriter Robert A. Avrech sponsors a memorial lecture in honor of his late son, Ariel.

This year, the guest speaker was author and publisher David Horowitz.

Horowitz made a startling and troubling statement:

That in university campuses across America, so-called “Jewish” student organizations are trying to appease antisemitism and anti-Zionism, instead of fighting these twin scourges head on.

Horowitz singled out Hillel for particular criticism.

Avrech blogged about the address:

David Horowitz compared many of the campus Hillels to the ghetto Jewish councils who made lists of all the Jews and then turned these lists over to the Nazis.

What is happening on today’s college campuses is taking place on a much wider scale all over Europe, where Islam, always a violent, racist, political ideology, is colonizing entire cities.
