CAEF letter to President Meric Gertler, University of Toronto, re pro-terrorist rallies

President Meric Gertler

October 20, 2023

Dear President Gertler,

You must listen to this and act—stop pro-terrorists from marching, speaking, demonstrating on campus. To not do that is to allow Nazis— and all other dangerous actors to use U of T to hurt Jews. You have to show moral clarity, leadership and much courage to stop campaigns, many on U of T among the worst Jew hatred on any Canadian campus.

Watch this now. It applies here too.

Already 6 Canadians have been killed by Hamas and others are still being held, along with babies, young children, women, elderly and men. This is savage, barbaric, terrifying and you have a significant role to play.

It is increasingly frightening for Jewish students and faculty to attend on any of your campuses. It must be declared that support for Hamas is totally unacceptable. It must be said that pro-Palestinian protests against Israel are denying freedom to the Jews held captive, and denying the right and obligation of Israel to defend its population and ignoring the inhumanity of Hamas.
