TORONTO, April 29 /CNW/ - It has recently come to the attention of the
Jewish Defence League of Canada that the Muslim Students Association, the
largest and most respectable Muslim Student group in Canada and the USA will
be having a Teleconference on Wednesday, April 30th, with a man who advocates
an INTIFADA in North America. This is from the Muslim Students Association web
This man, Dr. Hatem Bazian, recently stated during a speech to students,
"Are you angry? (Yeah!) Are you angry? (Yeah) Are you angry? (Yeah). Well,
we've been watching intifada in Palestine, we've been watching an uprising in
Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we don't have an
intifada in this country? and it's about time that we have an intifada in this
country that change(s) fundamentally the political dynamics here. And we know
every - They're gonna say some Palestinians are being too radical - well, you
haven't seen radicalism yet!"
We have witnessed a rise in anti-semitism and violence against Jewish
students on many campuses in Canada and any person who calls for an Intifada
in our country only serves to fuel the flames of hatred and violence directed
toward our community.
On May 30th, 2008 Dr. Jamal Badawi, Senior Board Member of the Council of
American Islamic Relations - Canada (CAIR-Canada), will be the Keynote Speaker
for the Muslim Student Association Conference in Canada. We call upon Dr.
Jamal Badawi to denounce any calls for an intifada in Canada and the U.S.A.
We also call upon the Solicitor General of Canada and the RCMP to monitor
hate speech by Dr. Hatem Bazian.
