Ontario Antisemites Getting Bolder

As enumerated by The Documentation Project: Anti-Semitic and Anti-Israel Campaigns in Canada, at least four incidents targeting Jews occurred in the last week in Ontario.

The day before Rosh Hashana, users of the St. Clair West subway station saw antisemitic conspiracy theory #1 scrawled on a wall: “Jews run the world. They also hate Blacks. Elijah”. It is unclear if “Elijah” referred to the name of the “artists’, but by the end of the day Toronto Transit Commission staff had removed the offending tag. 

The next day, around 6.30 PM on Friday September 18, several vehicles were graffitied by a man who scribbled – surprise! – “Jews run the world” in the neighborhood north of Bathurst and Steeles. 

Around the same time outside the Sephardic Kehila Centre at Bathurst and Steeles, a pedestrian launched a tirade at a vehicle stopped at the light. A victim posted online that, “Unprovoked, this antisemite aggressively approached us and repeatedly yelled, “You f-ing Jews”, among various antisemitic tropes. In this video, I managed to capture the last ten seconds of what was close to a one minute verbal assault (which almost ended with a physical assault) when he reached into the car to hit me.”

The next morning in downtown Ottawa, “at Rosh Hashana services outdoors in downtown Ottawa, we had a man drive up to us, spit at us, and call us “dirty f’ing Jews,” reported Lorne Geller. “The new year! Same as all the other ones…”

B’nai Brith Canada Partners With Black Chamber of Commerce To Tackle Racism

A new agreement will see the development of innovative strategies and best practices between B’nai Brith and representatives of black-owned businesses to advance human rights in Canada.

“This momentous occasion is exciting for everyone involved,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada. “With this historic event, we are advancing the close, decades-old partnership between the Black and Jewish communities in this country.”

The announcement of a Memorandum of Understanding stated the organizations “seek to increase positive relationships between our diverse communities and create an aspirational motivation to continually improve the economic circumstances of marginalized and diverse communities in Canada.”

“This is a game-changer for both of our communities,” said Andria Barrett, President of the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce. “Today’s development will make a big difference for years to come.” 

The CBCC, which started in 2018, is a non-profit, bilingual, national organization dedicated to empowering and supporting Black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs. It aims to become the hub of the Canadian Black business ecosystem.

Toronto lawyer Courtney Betty, a long-time leader in the Black community who has served on the Special Advisory Council to the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith, was credited as being a driving force behind the collaboration.

Under Threat Of Liability, Zoom Suspends Webinar Service For Lecture By Terrorist Hijacker

Direct pressure by The Lawfare Project and the #EndJewHatred movement has upended plans by San Francisco State University to stream a speech online by Leilah Khaled, the first female plane hijacker who is glorified by pro-Palestinian campus radicals.

Khaled committed a pair of violent hijackings on behalf of the banned terrorist group Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), in 1969 and 1970. Released in a hostage exchange before trial, she has lived in Amman, Jordan since and continues to be a darling of the anti-Israel academic world, such as her hosts as SFSU. Her planned lecture to the Department of Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Studies on “Teaching Palestine” is titled “Whose Narratives? Gender, Justice, & Resistance: A conversation with Leila Khaled.”

The outrage of Jewish activists from San Francisco and nationally about a terrorist being afforded a platform culminated in a demonstration outside Zoom headquarters in San Jose. The Lawfare Project had sent Zoom a formal letter “warning that, by knowingly permitting Khaled to use its platform to communicate directly to U.S. college students, Zoom would risk exposure to criminal liability under 18 U.S.C. § 2339B, which makes it unlawful to provide material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization.”

In response late Tuesday afternoon, Zoom announced they were pulling the plug on their telecast of the September 23 event.

 “Zoom is committed to supporting the open exchange of ideas and conversations, subject to certain limitations contained in our Terms of Service, including those related to user compliance with applicable U.S. export control, sanctions, and anti-terrorism laws. In light of the speaker’s reported affiliation or membership in a U.S. designated foreign terrorist organization, and SFSU’s inability to confirm otherwise, we determined the meeting is in violation of Zoom’s Terms of Service and told SFSU they may not use Zoom for this particular event.”
