August 20, 2012

Israeli flag( flag – Flash 90 – A Jewish high school teacher from Toronto was warned by local police that he is inciting a riot and could be causing mass violence by carrying an Israeli flag.
According to a report on the Shalom Toronto website, the teacher was told this by police officers as he attended the Iranian Al-Quds Day rally at Queen’s Park in downtown Toronto on August 18.
The teacher was interviewed by a local blog, “BlazingCatFur”, and said that he had been shadowing the rally on his bicycle while waving his Israeli flag.
He said the police were telling him to get off the street, so he went onto the sidewalk and was warned he’d be arrested.
“I’ve been threatened with arrest a few times,” the teacher told the blog, adding, “I tried to talk some sense into some of the officers but they’ve just been telling me that the more I do this the more I’m inciting riots.”(MORE)

Toronto Islamic school sent packing over anti-Semitic lessons

May 20, 2012

David and Mary Thomson Collegiate - Wikipedia - May 19, 2012 Toronto Islamic school apologizes after being accused of promoting hatred of Jews(Haaretz)A Toronto Islamic school has lost the right to use a public school for its classes after anti-Semitic teachings were discovered in its curriculum and posted on its website.
…The board has asked for a meeting “to have a deeper discussion so we can have a clear understanding of their programming and curriculum, and how and why some of the statements that appeared on their website were there,” Spyropoulos added.(MORE)

A clear understanding of their programming and curriculum? Read the writing in Islam attributed to Mohammad their prophet. Is there something there that isn’t clear? Either tell the public what we are dealing with or face the consequences. They don’t just kill Jews.

Toronto Mayor Rips Anti-Israel Gay Groups

April 3, 2011
Straight eye for Gay Politics by Rob Ford:
shape up Queers and get your act together…

The Jerusalem Post reports:

The mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford – and leading gay leaders and activists in North America and Europe – have slammed the anti-Israel focus among groups within the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) communities in New York and Toronto.
According to a report in Thursday’s Canadian Jewish News, Ford announced that his administration plans to pull the plug on more than $100,000 in city funds for the Toronto Gay Pride week events slated for late June, because of the participation of Queers Against Israeli Apartheid.
“Taxpayers dollars should not go toward funding hate speech,” said Ford.
After New York’s LGBT center in Manhattan’s West Village denied space to Siege Busters – a group that compares Israel to the former racist South African regime and sought to hold a “Party to End Apartheid” at the center early this month – LGBT activists staged a demonstration and initiated a petition campaign against the center’s decision.
On Sunday, the center’s management will host a community forum to discuss its decision to ban the anti-Israel group from its premises.
Siege Busters is currently raising funds to send a new flotilla to break Israel’s blockade of Hamas.
In an interview on Saturday with The Jerusalem Post, Frank van Dalen, former head of the Netherlands’ LGBT federation (and currently an Amsterdam city council member for the Liberal Party), said people “can disagree with Israel’s policies, but it is wrong to say it is apartheid.”
Groups invoking LGBT labels to equate Israel with apartheid have “nothing to do with the LGBT cause,” van Dalen said. The LGBT community “should be careful about entering global themes of politics.”
According to van Dalen, LGBT groups should direct their energies to fighting to end homophobia, and secure same-sex marriage rights.
Van Dalen, a former chairman of the Amsterdam Gay Pride, expressed disbelief about the presence of the anti-Israel queer group at Toronto’s parade. While stressing what he said were the mixed up priorities of the anti-Israel LGBT groups, he said fighting for same-sex marriage in Israel as well as in the Arab world is important.
