To say that Jews are intimidated by thousands of lethal protests now underway would be an understatement.

Jews often do not know that they can fight back.

Laws on the books in the US, UK and Canada provide a way to fight back.

A case in point: When I was writing a daily news feed from Israel for the Philadelphia Bulletin , no longer in publication, our Jerusalem bureau came across an instance where a young man from Pennsylvania was raising funds for a Hamas-related charity.

After the Bulletin published the story, a Philadelphia lawyer, Lee Bender, of blessed memory, advised the Bulletin that the fundraising efforts of this young man were actionable under the “Designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations law”, which defines aid to a designated terror group as a felony.

The list of designated foreign terrorist organizations can be found on the site of the US Department of Justice and the US State Department.

On my next visit to Philadelphia, Bender accompanied me to the local FBI office, with evidence in hand of the aid given to Hamas by this young man.

The FBI took action.

When the young man came for a visit to the US, he was arrested, prosecuted, convicted and jailed for aiding and abetting a designated terrorist organization.

He served three years in prison.

Fast forward: In April 2024, massive demonstrations were organized against Israel on campuses throughout the West.

Organizers of these demos openly proclaim their connections with Hamas and the PFLP, both of which are defined by the US, Canada and The UK as designated foreign terrorist organizations

What can a Jew do?

File criminal complaints with the FBI in the US, CSIS in Canada, or Scotland Yard in the UK against the designated foreign terrorist organizations.

Ask a lawyer for the right address.

What is your standing in such a case?

If you are Jew, these designated foreign terrorist organizations pose a threat to your life.

We do news differently!

Our positioning as a Zionist News Media platform sets us apart from the rest. While other Canadian Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas, TheJ.Ca is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

We revealed the incursion of anti-Israel progressive elements such as IfNotNow into our communities. We have exposed the distorted hateful agenda of the “progressive” left political radicals who brought Linda Sarsour to our cities, and we were first to report on many disturbing incidents of Nazi-based hate towards Jews across Canada.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your HELP!

Our ability to thrive and grow in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters like you.
