The Toronto District School Board’s controversial Islamic Heritage Month guidebook is facing criticism from yet another prominent advocacy organization, this time the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC).

“Music is intended to transcend political barriers and promote cultural exchange, pluralism, and diversity. Instead, Roger Waters is promoting hate. The Jewish Defense League will continue to take actions against Roger Waters until he renounces antisemitism in all of its forms, including the unjust boycott of the Jewish state.”
