The Toronto Board of Rabbis (TBR) expresses its profound disappointment that a local Jewish organization has extended an invitation to Pamela Geller, a blogger who is known for her extreme criticism of Muslims in language that is intended to shock and ridicule.
The TBR is a strong supporter of freedom of speech for all,including Ms. Geller. Ms. Geller’s voice and message are already well known here in Canada and beyond. There was no sense in inviting her here to Toronto to speak before a Jewish audience.Sadly the only sure result of this event will be increasing tensions within the Jewish community and between Jews and Muslims in Toronto.
The rest is through the link. Contains a mild shot at a "radical fringe Jewish group" that is presumably the Jewish Defense League.
Take your whining to the TBR, it's them who called you out on your hatred.
The company you keep shows who you are and it isn't a friend of freedom
Have to. Agree with the TBR they validate what many of us feel. Kinda makes me feel good that we have such a Rabbinical group here. but where are he official Jewish groups that triumphs human rights?
As Usual K. sums it up...Did you know something called “the Toronto Board of Rabbis” sent out a letter condemning Geller before she showed up?
Neither did any of the Jewish people in the packed hall. I guess they don’t care what a bunch of liberal rabbis have to say.
