  1. Kol HaKavod to the Jewish Independent for standing up and saying ‘not in our town’ to the bullying of the New Israel Fund of Canada by social media terrorist Pamela Geller.

  2. New Israel Fund is an anti-Israel, far-left wing group that is dedicated to maligning the State of Israel and the IDF. The Israeli government has tried to curtail their activities inside Israel due to this for some time now.

    They are also extremely anti-religious, never missing a chance to support individuals and groups whose sole purpose is the desecration of the Torah.

    Why any shul or Jewish organization would host them is beyond me. If you want to hear why Israel is a racist, theocratic, sexist, apartheid state then head over to the SPHR meeting.

  3. Pamela Geller is outspoken and doesn’t mince words. She managed to get posters on the bus calling the Jihadist savages. She is right. The Name New Israel Fund is misleading and often the misinformed naively donate to this Fund. But this Fund is definitely anti Israel, pro Palestinian, supports the Boycott.

    Pamela Geller knowledge is based on sound facts, and she knows how to face up to critics,(CNN Interview) she may offend many persons who have been brainwashed by Arab propaganda, and those who believe that everything has to be so politically correct, so as G-d forbid our words may offend certain subversive minorities. IN the USA, they debate the issue of using the phrase In G-d We Trust, Flying the Stars and Stripes, or using the phrase Christian Charity. Thank G-d Canada has not reached that stage. But we do have such groups such as the Independent Jewish Voices….

    Pamela Geller is a brave woman, almost prophetic, and her words should be taken very seriously.

  4. To Rabbi DAN MOSKOVITZ:

    Kol HaKavod to the Jewish Independent for standing up and saying ‘”not in our town’ to the bullying of the New Israel Fund of Canada by social media terrorist Pamela Geller.” Where did it say not in our town?

    A special thanks to Cynthia, editor of this excellent newpaper.

  5. The rabbi is referring to the editorial, in which we state “It is our community’s right to discuss whatever issues we deem important – and to determine where the limits, if any, of that discussion lay.” i.e. the decisions as to what we discuss, and how, is not up to those “not in our town.”
