Feb 26/13: Due to family sickness, the keynote speaker for the Never Again Group conference finale at McMaster University, Tammi Rossman-Benjamin of the University of California, cannot be present, so the event has been cancelled. The NAG wish to convey their sincerest regrets to all those who were looking forward to hearing her presentation about combatting campus anti-Semitism, and hope you will attend the new keynote finale at Victory International Church…
Israel Truth Week will instead present the world human rights leader Rev. Majed El Shafie of One Free World International who has graciously agreed to greatly extend his time with us to accommodate a new evening session at Victory. He will present his award-winning documentary ‘Freedom Fighter,’ following which he will participate in an extended question and answer session, followed by a ‘mingle’ session which will close the conference. This exciting new keynote finale session will take place at Victory International Church during the evening of March 6th, 6:30, doors open 6:00pm. Please see the revised agenda above for complete details.
ABOUT REV. MAJED EL SHAFIE: Rev. El Shafie is a former Muslim who was tortured and sentenced to die after converting to Christianity. He escaped to Israel and now, from Canada, he rescues other persecuted people, and travels the world’s hot spots speaking out against violence and persecution of innocents because of their faith. He has just returned from meeting numerous dignitaries in India, and he will be speaking at the United Nations this Thursday, Feb 28th at a conference organized by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, following which a ‘Draft International Convention for the Prevention of Incitement to Terror’ will be presented to the UN.

ABOUT THE 2012 CONFERENCE…
“Dear Mark, your event was a great success in all regards, and I sincerely congratulate you for it. I wanted to tell you how pleased I was to attend the premiere of Israel Truth Week which you organized so efficiently. The venue was superb, the speakers were great and the topics couldn’t have been better selected. I am still scratching my head to find some – any – criticism…but in vain! Also to be highly commended are Rev. Joe Campbell, Andrew Lawton and Mary Lou Ambrogio.”
