A major United Church in downtown Toronto agreed to let their facility be used to celebrate a Muslim terrorist. No, I’m not exaggerating or embellishing or giving my opinion, either.
For this news I couldn’t rely on Trudeau's CBC state broadcaster — l had to learn about it from the foreign media, which is more independent. That’s what happens when Justin Trudeau rents out journalists for $600 million.
So here’s what the Jerusalem Post reports:
B’nai Brith Canada has condemned a decision by Toronto’s Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church to “provide a space” for an event that honors Ghassan Kanafani, a designated Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist.
The event being hosted by the Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM) on July 13 is listed as the Ghassan Kanafani Resistance Arts Scholarship Launch.
(If you visit the Canadian federal government’s official list of banned terrorist entities, you can see the PFLP right on there. Same list as the Taliban or Al Qaida.)
Kanafani and the PFLP were responsible for the Lod Airport Massacre in May 1972 that left 26 civilians dead, including a Canadian, 17 Christian pilgrims from Puerto Rico, and eight Israelis, and injured 80 others.
At the time of the terror attack, Kanafani was the spokesman for the terrorist group.
So, a massacre of 26 people, wounding 80 more, killing Jews and Christians, even a Canadian.
For the first time in my life, I’m worried about the normalization of anti-Semitism. I don’t think it’s ever been a real problem in Canada. I've always thought of it as just about the friendliest place in the world to be a Jew.
The new antisemitism is stoked by Muslim extremists being imported to our country. Did you think unvetted mass immigration from Muslim countries would only result in, what, just a lot of shawarma shops?
Now, what about the church hosting this event? On the main page of the Trinity-St. Paul’s church website, there are 1,600 words on the main page. The words "Jesus" or "Christ" do not appear. The word "climate" does, several times. That gives you an idea of what this church is about.
The church is led by Cheri Di Novo, a former left-wing politician and a gay rights activist.
Surely she and Trinity-St. Paul's know that the punishment for homosexuality in Islam is death?
But the gayest church in Canada says — no problem, rent out our room to celebrate a terrorist murderer.
Now, literally half-way through when I was writing this commentary, I got news that, under growing pressure, the United Church buckled, and cancelled the booking. But only after pressure — and not from mainstream groups, either, but from B’nai Brith, which is a bit conservative, and the JDL (the Jewish Defence League), which is more muscular.
That’s what we have here:
The fancy people, the official people, are only too happy to rent out rooms for terrorist celebrations. Justin Trudeau has said there is no mosque in Canada that is too extreme for him to campaign in. He can do the math.
(And I think it’s creeping into Andrew Scheer’s Conservative party too.)
Trinity-St. Paul's Church has been shamed into cancelling the booking — this time.
But it won’t be long before we get to the tipping point, where the sheer number of anti-Semites is just so large, and their social acceptance is so great, that, yeah, they’ll have their terrorist celebrations anywhere they please...
NEXT: The Trudeau Liberals have cancelled their so called immigration "triage" program, which was meant to redirect "refugees" away from already-crowded Toronto and Montreal.
My guest, immigration lawyer Guidy Mamann joins me to talk about what this means for those two cities.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
