Centre refuses to host Steyn lecture on free speech
A man who talks about free speech and Islam gets banned from talking at a civic auditorium out of fear of angering muslims. You can’t make this stuff up, I wonder if the irony is lost on the managers of the auditorium or on muslims?
Organizers of an upcoming talk by conservative writer Mark Steyn planned for London, Ont., say they were muzzled by a local city-owned convention centre.
Strictly Right have found a larger â€” and more expensive â€” venue. Mr. Steyn will speak on Nov. 1 at London’s 1,600-seat Centennial Hall.

The American Rabbi Nachum Shifren is visiting England to meet with members of the English Defence League and express his solidarity with the European resistance to Islamization. SeeÂ this post at ICLA for a video of a BBC news report featuring Rabbi Shifren. The report describes (in that well-known snarky BBC tone) the growing transatlantic cooperation among groups opposing Islamization.

The English Defence League (EDL) has been meeting with Orthodox Rabbi Nachum Shifren this week ahead of today’s demonstration in support of Israel outside the Israeli embassy in London. This is part of the growing interaction between the EDL and the counter-jihad movement in the US that I enthusiastically support.
Rabbi Nachum Shifren is running for Senate in California. Atlas strongly endorses this candidate. Rabbi Shifren is an Orthodox Rabbi andÂ California State Senate Candidate. Rabbi Shifren has received endorsement from the Jewish community in Los Angeles andÂ has been praised by organizations throughout the US for his steadfast support for the American Constitution and individual rights. He has built coalitions spanning all ethnic groups (Korean-Americans, African-Americans, Hispanics). The EDL has built similar coalitions.
