Pam Geller, Robert Spencer Still Not Booted From Hilton Toronto/Markham Conference Centre

“The booking is confirmed to take place as scheduled,” the hotel’s General Manager Patrick Regina told the Jewish Tribune after consulting with legal counsel, Hilton World- wide and the York Regional Police Hate Crimes Unit.

A bit of background, including Mr. Regina's email address, here.  I've sent off one email already, and I know a few others have.  Mr. Regina appears unmoved.

Mr. Regina may be unmoved now but the publicity for his company will be negative and wide-spread. I don't expect boycotts but hopefully Hilton will now be associated with hosting hate speech.

Link to Regina not correct one.

Thx. Fixed.

How do you know that what they have to say will be hate speech?

Can you point out Any examples of criminal-grade hate speech by Geller or the other fellow, even on Youtube?

Harry Abrams said...

Oh wait!

Geller's group put up ads in the NYC subway reading: "In the war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man." Support Israel Defeat Jihad.

I'm even more pro-Israel than the next fellow, but in my view this isn't a good way to go about supporting the place. It's not quite criminal grade incitement, but it's very nasty and implicitly tars all Muslims without distinction.

There's no room in this to say that it's just about "radical"political Muslims. ... so it's not fair....
