The Truth Must be Told - CAEF Bulletin Aug 28, 2020

Repeating Lies Does NOT Make them True!

Today the addage, that the more often a lie is repeated the more likely it will be believed, certainly seems to hold true when it comes to all the lies told about Israel, but who is telling the truth? We must encourage every Jew to know and speak the truth about Israel, debunk the myths and lies, and teach others.

The Canadian Antisemitism Education Foundation has been pleased to introduce our supporters to outstanding speakers during this crazy time of the Coronavirus pandemic, and we will continue to use webinars as a means to educate about antisemitism and counter antiZionism. We are standing strong as Zionists, and we need your help to advance an agenda to see the adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance working definition of antisemitism in all areas of public life. We are identifying strategies to combat antisemitism and building alliances with others. We are thrilled to advise that our Web Talks are also reaching an international audience with viewers in the US, UK, and Israel. As well, several of our posted videos have been promoted by Combat Antisemitism, a US NGO that has wide circulation globally.

There is Apartheid in the Middle East, Palestinian Apartheid!

This short documentary by Pierre Rehov illustrates that, while there is a form of discriminatory racism in the Middle East, it is directed against Jews by the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, and many Arab countries, contrary to what widespread opinion would like to impose.

“For nearly 20 years, Pierre Rehov and his teams have explored the Middle East with the aim of revealing facts from the field that most media refuse to broadcast. The result has been the regular production of factual documentaries (long or short) some of which have been hugely successful in most Western countries.”

This video from Pierre Rehov must be widely shared. It spells out clearly where apartheid really exists, not in Israel but in the PA controlled territories and in Gaza. Watch truth telling as uncovers the insipid lies of Israeli apartheid and records the evil intent of the founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, Omar Barghouti, who lives in Israel, benefiting from an education at Haifa Univesity and all the amenities of life in Israel. As well, the radical antisemitic BDS movement has been engulfed by the leftist/Islamist or red/green alliance world wide.

Truth Must be Told so share this video on all social media platforms, with friends and acquaintances who doubt Israel’s democracy, fair treatment of all citizens and residents, and Jewish rights to the land.

CAEF is a proud partner with Adath Israel Synagogue for an inspiring program featuring Bari Weiss, journalist, author and former editor at the New York Times.

Time shown is Eastern daylight time.

McGill Daily Lies About Jews, Again

On July 1st, 2020 the 100 year old student newspaper, the McGill Daily, published a Commentary by the Students for Palestinian Human Rights, an NGO that claims to be “a student-based non-hierarchical organization that advocates on a strong social justice platform to uphold the rights of the Palestinian people in the face of human rights violations and all forms of racism, discrimination, misinformation and misrepresentation.”

However, a review of the social media posted by SPHR reveals that the real purpose has nothing to do with social justice, human rights or correcting any misinformation. It is a dedicated antiZionist, antisemitic organization which features lies, myths and propaganda against Israel.

One might assume that few students bother to read the McGill Daily, especially as it is only one of two student papers, and is more a broadsheet for criticism of society and calls for transformation, however it publishes under a McGill brand, received large amounts of money from the university, and claims to be a “newspaper” so it should meet some ethical standards. As the commentary section might be argued is for opinions, then it is incumbent on the paper to provide a counter opinion which we have now offered, one that is well researched, and facts based. As of this date, we have had no response.

CAEF supporter, Dr. David Nussbaum, a retired University of Toronto Assistant professor, invested a fair amount of time in writing this article, entitled, It’s Beyond Time: To Set the Record Straight: A Response to SPHR’s Commentary: It’s Beyond Time and we are requesting full publication. It is noteworthy that in 2017 this student newspaper was placed on probation for publishing an antisemitic article and then rejecting a rebuttal. The university itself underwent an independent review to determine if there was antisemitism on campus. In submitting the article to the McGill Daily, we also shared our view with the Principal of McGill, Suzanne Fortier, the Director of Jewish Studies, Dr. Yael Halevi-Wise, and several organizations. We are seeking to have the paper apologize and publish a retraction for it does not serve the student population to have funding from the administration used to denigrate Israel and promote antiZionism, which is antisemitism, nor is it appropriate for the name of the university to be associated with a publication that destroys faith in journalism, in seeking truth, in unbiased reporting.
