The possible return of Omar Khadr to Canada should concern the Jewish community. His supporters are anti Israel and attempt to declassify Hamas as a Terror group.
The leaders of Pride Toronto told NOW Magazine the following:
Pride co-chair Francisco Alvarez says he has no intention of barring QuAIA however, and that any complaints against the activist group will be handled through a dispute resolution process Pride established last year.
“We are not going to take the position of censoring a community group,” Alvarez told NOW. “That’s why this whole process was established.”
Under the dispute resolution protocol, which has never been used, complaints against a participating group would go to a panel of roughly 10 volunteer legal experts, who would then render a binding decision.
While he says it would ultimately be up to the panel to decide, Alvarez believes that QuAIA is not discriminatory and is being unfairly singled out.
“QuAIA has every right to be there as far as I’m concerned, just as every group has a right to exist in a free society,” he said. “Other groups with different [controversial] messages are marching in the parade and nobody is asking them to withdraw. There’s a lobby group that doesn’t want any criticism of Israel.”
The JDL will take action against Pride Toronto.
With Love of Israel,
Meir Weinstein, National Director
