Jewish Defence League Calls on Government of Canada to Enforce the Law Against BDS Groups in Canada Plan to Damage Products from Israel

TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2016 /CNW/ -

To the Attention of the Honourable Minister For Public Safety Ralph Goodale:

It has come to the attention of the Jewish Defence League of Canada, that an Ottawa based organization (Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East) with charitable donation status, is asking Canadians to damage sales of Israeli products that are sold in Canada. This BDS group has stated "CJPME's campaign invites Canadians from across the country to sign up for a packet of free "Boycott Israel" sticky notes.  CJPME invites Canadians to go to local stores and post these on Israeli merchandise, thus warning potential buyers against buying products from Israel."

The Jewish Defence League of Canada is calling on your office to advise the R.C.M.P. to enforce the law. Conspiring with other groups and persons to willfully damage business premises and impeding people from carrying on normal business  together with the new form of antisemitism must be stopped.

The Jewish Defence League will also be advising the CRA of the above.

Thank You,

Meir Weinstein
National Director
