Pamela Geller: Free Speech Under Fire in Canada

Pamela Geller vs Canada’s Orwellian “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion” Bureau Run by Ricky Veeraphan’s Speech Police

“…gender apartheid, creed apartheid, Islamic Jew-hatred, honor killing — runs contrary to their values? What exactly are their values? Imposing Sharia? Because that’s exactly what they’re doing. My value is life. What’s theirs?”

Pamela Geller: Free Speech Under Fire in Canada

Islamic supremacists and their willing dhimmi enablers strongarm a rabbi into giving them yet another victory over the freedom of speech. This shows yet again how much Islamic supremacists fear the truths that people like Pamela Geller tell: they know they cannot prove her wrong or refute her, so they do everything they can to shut her down. And it is the same story with me and everyone else who dares to tell the truth about jihad and Islamic supremacism. “Free Speech Under Fire in Canada,” by Pamela Geller in the American Thinker, May 3: (JW)

Here is yet another instance of the Islamic supremacist/leftist war on free speech — particularly egregious in the wake of the Boston Marathon jihad bombings. The message is all the more crucial now. For years, my colleagues and I labored under the most heinous circumstances. Anyone who opposes the jihad and the Sharia must endure a constant withering attack on one’s name, reputation, integrity, and even spirit.

Ezra Levant looks at the morality police who are rounding up woman who dare to show an inch of ankle in Iran and Saudi Arabia and asks why police in Canada are enforcing “morality” here.

I was scheduled to speak at the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue in Thornhill, right outside of Toronto’s city limits, on May 13. But now Islamic supremacist groups in Canada, with willing aid from the Canadian police, have succeeded in getting the event canceled under police pressure, and the organizers are looking for a new location.

Insp. Ricky Veerappan, of the York Regional Police force’s diversity, equity and inclusion bureau: “Some of the stuff that Ms. Geller speaks about runs contrary to the values of York Regional Police and the work we do in engaging our communities.”

Let me understand this. The “stuff” that I speak about — gender apartheid, creed apartheid, Islamic Jew-hatred, honor killing — runs contrary to their values? What exactly are their values? Imposing Sharia? Because that’s exactly what they’re doing. My value is life. What’s theirs?

And they acted on smears from the ADL. The Police Department had concerns about the event because an Islamic supremacist group had complained to them, citing some of the smears and libels that are circulating about me on the Internet, including the Anti-Defamation League’s denunciation of me.

The capacity for humiliating, destructive behavior from the ADL’s Abraham Foxman (and those Jews who fund the ADL) continues to astound and repel proud Jews across the world. This is the same ADL that has condemned Jews including Joan Rivers, Seth MacFarlane, and Israel itself.

The ADL is more dangerous to the Jews than her avowed enemies, because they appear to be on our side — and yet undermine the staunchest and fiercest Zionists. The enemies of freedom use the compromised Jews of the AFL to defame and destroy a Jew who is truly standing up for Israel and for the principles of freedom and human rights that the Jewish State represents. It’s inexcusable.

But this time the police met repeatedly with the rabbi and warned him not to host the event, and finally threatened him that if he held the event, he would be removed from his position as chaplain of York County.

The rabbi wasn’t prepared to go up against the police, or to give up his chaplaincy, so he bowed to the threat and canceled the event. It’s unfortunate that Chabad could not withstand the pressure from the police department, particularly in light of the brutal and horrifying murders and mutilations of their fellow Chabadniks Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg, his wife Rivka and their children in the Mumbai jihad massacre in November 2008.

The police also told the rabbi that Jason Kenney, Canada’s Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, has been asked to keep me out of Canada. They are trying to ban me fresh on the heels of an Islamic attack targeting the passenger train between New York and Toronto. Does this make any sense to any of you?

So the police are kowtowing to the Islamic groups, who are demanding that the government do so as well, and the rabbi is kowtowing to the police to insure his York chaplaincy.

Meanwhile, the convicted terrorist and airline hijacker Leila Khaled, who is known as the “poster girl of Palestinian militancy,” is scheduled to speak at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Khaled has been convicted of terrorism for participating in airline hijackings for the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist group. She is scheduled to speak via Skype this Saturday, May 4, at a conference hosted by a group supporting the Palestinian jihad….
