Pro-Israel events cancelled at York University...

It would upset the anti-Israel people...
At the last minute, York University has cancelled events organized by a coalition of Canadian pro-Israel students and organizations due to “security” concerns. The events organized by the Imagine With Us coalition were scheduled for this week in anticipation of Israel Apartheid Week (IAW), which begins on March 1.

The Imagine With Us coalition – a “multi-faith, multi-political movement that is concerned with maintaining Canadian values and keeping our campuses safe from hatred, discrimination and radical incitement, particularly from those subscribing to radical Islam,” explained Michael Mostyn, national director of public affairs for B’nai Brith Canada – is led by My Canada, a non-partisan organization of young adult Christians who are passionate about a variety of social justice issues, and B’nai Brith Canada.

On Monday and Thursday of this week, events were scheduled at York which included the participation of Middle East expert and political commentator Daniel Pipes, Israeli scholar of Arabic literature and political discourse Dr. Mordechai Kedar, ormer PLO terrorist Walid Shoebat, human right activist Rev. Majed El Shafie, social justice activist and founder of My Canada Faytene Kryskow, and B’nai Brith Canada CEO Frank Dimant. The events were scheduled to be streamed live to campuses across Canada and to be viewable online internationally.

On Monday morning, York University informed Imagine With Us campus partners Christians United for Israel (CUFI) that the university was cancelling the event due to the fact that Imagine With Us did not meet their requirements. York had required that the organizers include a formidable police and campus security presence paid for by the organizers, a list of all attendees in advance, a minute-by-minute synopsis of all speakers’ talking points and a ban on public advertising of the event at York and on satellite campuses.

York University has said that the requirements were demanded of the event organizers due to the participation of individuals who they claim invite the animus of anti-Israel campus agitators.

Just more proof that the perception for Muslims and Islam is that the Quran enables people to become violent and prone to Terrorism acts from the slightest feeling of being offended or Islam being criticized.
My issue is the LACK of outrage and public rallies to denouce Jihad and Terrorism done in the name of Islam and as a favour to Muhammed.
Being against violence towards females becomes a Mock-Moral stance when I then see the abuse and do nothing to stop it.

The deafening silence from the Good-Mulsims speaks volumes about the Quran's orders to Muslims to make Earth a Global caliphate under Shariah law that will murder all gays and lesbians.

".....the deafening silence from the Good Muslims...."

Good muslims? Who are they? Where are they? What are they?

ALL muslims believe that gays must be killed. Their prophet said so 1400 years ago! Lesbians, according to islamic teachings, must be beaten if caught in lesbian action. In case of recurrence, lesbian women must also be killed, according to islam.

There is no such thing as a good muslim, because all muslims follow the crazy teachings of a crazy man, who lived in the 7th century!rom
