Huge Victory For Winnipeg’s Pro Israel Community

Sarsour utters NOT a single word about ISRAEL.

Linda Sarsour thought she could come into Winnipeg and continue her pattern of hijacking legitimate events to spew her Israel-Jew hate and incite division in our community.

What she didn’t count on were 4200 signatories to our petition, one not so ‘little’ Mayor Bowman, a defiant Deputy Premier and a sea of grassroots advocates standing up for the STATE OF ISRAEL and against Hate and Antisemitism.

She didn’t count on the swell of Jewish and non Jewish organizations like B'nai Brith Canada, Canadian Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre, Winnipeg Friends of Israel, Hasbara Fellowships Canada, Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, Stop Israel Hate, Bridges for Peace Canada, Christians United for Israel (CUFI) and many others who joined our campaign and called Sarsour out on her Antisemitic rhetoric.

Tonight was a HUGE VICTORY for all of us. Our campaign and the tsunami of support that followed rattled Sarsour to the core and led to this being the FIRST occasion we can recall where Sarsour refrained from wading into her anti Israel speech.

We should all be congratulated. What a campaign!!!
