What Jews have in common, whether politically left or right, religious or secular, Israeli or diaspora, involved or unengaged—is that we oppose Jew Hatred! CAEF has joined the End Jew Hatred movement and is forming the End Jew Hatred Canada. CAEF held an inaugural meeting with Toronto volunteers and the team at the Lawfare Project which initiated #EndJewHatred, a grassroots movement that takes direct action to confront Jew haters.

We are in planning mode, identifying key targets that need to be exposed and held accountable. We invite others who will commit time, talent, toil to the civil rights of the Jews. This is our Jewish liberation movement! It is time that Jews joined the fight for Jewish rights, no less important than women’s rights, gay rights, black rights, etc.

Jews are the most discriminated against minority; stats show year over year that antisemitism and antisemitic attacks represent the greatest number of hate crimes in Canada, as in the US and Europe. Watch for more information. Join the movement here. Send CAEF at anita@caef.ca the following: your name, email, cell phone number.

Do You Care if Canada is Funding Antisemitic Lies that Pass as Education?

In a recent webinar presentation, Itmar Marcus, Founder and Director of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), provided a significant amount of evidence of the terror and incitement taught by Palestinian Authority approved media, schools and mosques. Marcus was invited to share his information with CAEF supporters. Below is his response and a few videos that illustrate the depth of lies and hatred spewed by PA President Mahmoud Abbas, #1 Antisemite among the Palestinian Arabs.

"I hope that you gained some valuable insight into the roots of the conflict and the challenges Israel faces from a Palestinian Authority that promotes and celebrates the murder of Israelis as Allah’s will, and tells children that they are destined for Martyrdom because they are merely ammunition for Islam. We certainly hope that the Biden administration will be exposed to PMW findings as soon as possible. Once the new administration knows the horrific ways the PA uses donor money, it will be able to decide intelligently if it wants US taxpayers to pay for Palestinian terror promotion and child abuse.

PMW has changed the way the world views the PA. There is not a country in the world that does not know that the PA names schools and sporting events after terrorists, pays salaries to terrorist prisoners, and incites terror and Martyrdom in its media and education. Four countries have cut off all funding to the PA, and many others have cut funding to the PA’s general budget and only fund individual projects—all in response to information that PMW has brought to the world’s attention. "

CAEF asks—what do Canadians think of the government spending over $70m in support of the UN Relief and Works Agency which works in collaboration with the PA, uses the same texts as the PA, demonizes Israel in the same way as the PA, lives off of donor funds but never addresses or solves a refugee issue because, like the PA, its very existence requires the problems, which it manufactures, in order to justify its existence?
