Launch of End Jew Hatred Canada
The Canadian Antisemitism Education Foundation has partnered with End Jew Hatred to organize peaceful direct action and hold antisemites accountable. You too can join End Jew Hatred Canada.
Below are a few photos from our first direct action. On Holocaust Remembrance Day, members of our EJH Canada Steering Committee held a short, pandemic safe, vigil at the Holocaust Memorial in Earl Bales Park, Toronto. You can read the words of the spokesperson, Anita Bromberg, Co-Chair EJH Canada and President of CAEF.

The participants then followed a hearse generously donated by the Clark Family Funeral Coach to the downtown headquarters of Twitter Canada. Ten cars formed a convoy, bearing funeral signs and hazard lights flashing and one car blared out a strong message demanding that Jack Dorsey, President and CEO: ”Deny Holocaust Deniers the use of the Twitter social media platform”. The Co-Chair of EJH Canada, Andria Spindel, read our statement outside of Twitter while a volunteer held the Twitter logo abreast, and others held EJH signs.

Lessons of the Holocaust
Former Israeli Prime Minister
First, if an enemy of our people says he seeks to destroy us, believe him. Don’t doubt him for a moment. Don’t make light of it. Do all in your power to deny him the means of carrying out his satanic intent.
Second, when a Jew anywhere is threatened, or under attack, do all in your power to come to his aid. Never pause to wonder what the world will think or say. The world will never pity slaughtered Jews. The world may not necessarily like the fighting Jew, but the world will have to take account of him.
Third, a Jew must learn to defend himself. He must forever be prepared for whenever threat looms.
Fourth, Jewish dignity and honor must be protected in all circumstances. The seeds of Jewish destruction lie in passively enabling the enemy to humiliate us. Only when the enemy succeeds in turning the spirit of the Jew into dust and ashes in life, can he turn the Jew into dust and ashes in death. During the Holocaust it was after the enemy had humiliated the Jews, trampled them underfoot, divided them, deceived them, afflicted them, drove brother against brother, only then could he lead them, almost without resistance, to the gates of Auschwitz. Therefore, at all times and whatever the cost, safeguard the dignity and honor of the Jewish people.
Fifth, stand united in face of the enemy. We Jews love life, for life is holy. But there are things in life more precious than life itself. There are times when one must risk life for the sake of rescuing the lives of others. And when the few risk their own lives for the sake of the many, then they, too, stand the chance of saving themselves.
Sixth, there is a pattern to Jewish history. In our long annals as a nation, we rise, we fall, we return, we are exiled, we are enslaved, we rebel, we liberate ourselves, we are oppressed once more, we rebuild, and again we suffer destruction, climaxing in our own lifetime in the calamity of calamities, the Holocaust, followed by the rebirth of the Jewish State.
Mike Pompeo, former US Secretary of State, tweeted this on January 14,2021:
We suspended funding to UNRWA, which is riddled with waste, fraud & concerns of support to terrorism. UNRWA is not a refugee agency; it’s estimated <200,000 Arabs displaced in 1948 are still alive and most others are not refugees by any rational criteria.
Taxpayers deserve basic truths: most Palestinians under UNRWA’s jurisdiction aren’t refugees, and UNRWA is a hurdle to peace. America supports peace and Palestinian human rights; UNRWA supports neither. It's time to end UNRWA's mandate.
