CAEF Letter to President Mohamed Lachemi of Toronto Metropolitan University Re: Stop International Women's Day March intended to honour two terrorists

Dear President Lachemi,

It has come to our attention that the planned International Women's Day March on Saturday, March 2, which will commence at OISE and end at TMU, is intended to glorify two female terrorists, one of whom succeeded in murdering Jews and another who planned an even greater attack. Neither of these women are heroes, only savage terrorists whose sole cause was and is the death of Jews, destruction of a people and eradication of the State of Israel.

It is incumbent on you to deny this walk any and all access to TMU premises and to demand that any TMU participation or endorsement be dependent on the removal of any and all messages of hatred and bigotry, and antisemitic calls to recognize mass murderers. Both of the Arab women portrayed as heroes by those usurping IWD Toronto, were found guilty of serious crimes and cannot be considered models for Canadian girls and women.

We ask that you take immediate action to distance TMU from this event.


Andria Spindel,

Executive Director

Canadian Antisemitism Education Foundation
