SPHR condemns terrorist attack at Ryerson University in Toronto.

Feb 25, 2008

Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights with its' 14 branches and
affiliates across Canada, stand shoulder to shoulder with our Black
brothers and sisters at Ryerson University who have suffered from a
terrorist attack on the offices of the East African Students Group

The arson attack targeted the bulletin board of EAST witch carried
posters and information against Racisim, Islamophobia, and Military
Occupation. This attack follows the re-activation in Canada of the
Jewish Defense League (JDL), the only Jewish group labeled by the FBI
as a "right-wing terrorist group." On February 4th at Ryesron
University during events held by Black and Palestinian students,
around 50 JDL members harassed students attending the lecture without
police interference. This sent a message to the JDL and other Jewish
supremacist individuals that it is acceptable to target visible
minorities in our cities. Furthermore, this decision by the Toronto
police to stand-by idly only emboldened those who committed this
terrorist action a week later.

The police are not alone in creating a climate of acceptance around
the JDL as several Jewish news agencies, including the Canadian Jewish
News, have touted the founder of the Canadian JDL, Meir Weinstein, as
a strong leader to be respected and covered the racist harassment at
Ryerson U on the 4th as community empowerment.

On the US side of the border, the JDL was responsible for many murders
and arson attacks in the 1980s, leading the FBI to label them "the
second most active terrorist group in the United States." In Canada
after the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the JDL Chairman,
Montreal born Irv Rubin, initiated a campaign of bomb scares and death
threats against students at Concordia University who were critical of
US and Israeli state policies. At the time, Montreal Police also were
unconcerned by the JDL threat. Community members were assured by
Montreal police officers that Ruben was only able to recruit 5
students at Concordia. Of course it takes only one person to wreck
havoc upon innocents. A few months later Irv Rubin was arrested by
police in Florida preparing to bomb a host of targets, including the
largest Mosque in the USA and Concordia University in Montreal.

We urge the Toronto Police force to take our concerns seriously and
investigate any links that could be made between the attack on the
East African Students group and the reconstitution of the JDL in
Canada. Inaction on the part of the police will send the wrong
message to those who perpetrated this heinous act.

We also call on Jewish organizations to speak loudly against Jewish
supremacy, violence and terrorism within their community. Setting a
good example in tolerance is the only way any community can isolate

We finally call on all people to join Ryerson students in solidarity
on Tuesday, February 26 at NOON outside the Cafeteria at the
University to show our opposition to such acts.
