Canada: Thug Police call Rabbi a Liar

37

The National Post is running a story (look at the agenda driven picture they use) claiming that the goosestepping police that threatened the Chabad Rabbi over my scheduled talk didn’t really threaten him at all.

The fascist cop, Insp. Ricky Veerappan, already admitted that they threatened the rabbi with his removal from the York chaplaincy, so how does the National Post run a headline like this? The police thug admits it in this article:

“If he had not cancelled the event – and again, that was his decision
– then we would have had to re-evaluate his relationship with York
Regional Police because it would be clearly be in contravention of the
values of our organization,” said Insp. Veerappan
.

Values? So this thug supports gender apartheid, creed apartheid, misogyny, honor killings, clitordectomies, et al?

Police dispute allegations that there were any threats of
intimidation, saying instead that “a discussion” took place…

“A discussion.” Who does this sharia enforcer think he is? Don Corleone?

The Rabbi is staying quiet. You would, too, if you had these SA-types on your tail.

“Police deny pressuring rabbi to cancel speech by controversial U.S. anti-Islamist blogger Pamela Geller” National Post, May 3, 2013

Jewish activists say a Toronto-area rabbi has been pressured by an
area police force to change plans to host a controversial anti-Islamist
speaker, prompting accusations the force is squelching free speech.

Rabbi Mendel Kaplan, of the Chabad @ Flamingo Synagogue, cancelled
plans to host a talk by Pamela Geller, an American blogger known for her
criticism of Islam. She is co-founder of Stop Islamification [sic] of
America, a group that opposes the proposed building of a mosque at
Ground Zero and sponsors anti-Islamic ads in U.S. cities.

Police dispute allegations that there were any threats of
intimidation, saying instead that “a discussion” took place Tuesday
between Insp. Ricky Veerappan
, leader of the York Regional Police
force’s diversity, equity and inclusion bureau, and Rabbi Kaplan, who is
also a volunteer chaplain with the force. Insp. Veerappan said that
during their discussion, the rabbi was presented with more information
and a decision.

“If he had not cancelled the event – and again, that was his decision
– then we would have had to re-evaluate his relationship with York
Regional Police because it would be clearly be in contravention of the
values of our organization,” said Insp. Veerappan
.

“Our concern is that Rabbi Kaplan is also a representative of the
police, he wears a police uniform, and some of the comments that have
been attributed to Ms. Geller really posed a conflict situation for us
at York Regional Police.”

The force chaplaincy, to which Rabbi Kaplan belongs, falls under the
police bureau of diversity, equity and inclusion, which aims to promote
diversity and cultural education in York Region. There are eight
chaplains who represent the area’s five largest faith groups.

Insp. Veerappan said Rabbi Kaplan made the decision to cancel his
Thornhill synagogue’s hosting of the May 13 talk, which has since been
relocated to the Toronto Zionist Centre.

A receptionist at the Chabad @ Flamingo Synagogue said Rabbi Kaplan
was not available Thursday and would not be speaking to media.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative

Meir Weinstein, director of the Jewish Defence League, the hardline group sponsoring the event, told the National Post he was shocked and mystified as to why the police got involved.

“They took a position against Pamela Geller – our right to have her to speak.”

Salim Mansur, a tenured professor at Western University, wrote a
letter to police Chief Eric Jolliffe, criticizing what he considers a
constraint on free speech.

“Are we turning into one of those Third World countries where a
police chief can pick up the phone and tell a free institution, in this
case a religious institution, that you can not do this and you can do
this?” he said by phone on Thursday.

“I’m speaking here as a Muslim. I’m terribly angry and upset that
these people in the name of my religion and my tradition want to stop
somebody else from speaking.”

He suggested that those who took issue with Ms. Geller’s talk should simply bring in someone to counter her points.

“They have the right to complain but that doesn’t mean that right to
complain conflates into an action that goes against the very values
about this society,” he said.

Cara Zwibel of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association agreed that
while instances where police infringe on free speech is certainly
problematic, intervention in this particular case may have been
warranted.

“In general, police involvement in deciding who can speak where and
when is something we are concerned about because it could have a big
impact on freedom of expression,” she said by e-mail Thursday.

“Having said that, in this case it appears the police force was
concerned that they might be seen as endorsing the speaker’s views
because of their relationship with the synagogue’s rabbi. In these
circumstances, I don’t think it is illegitimate for the police to raise
this concern with the rabbi intending to host the event.”

Another liberal exposed for the fascist she truly is.
