As you know, the Aqsa Parvez resolution passed and a beautiful memorial garden in honor of Aqsa Parvez is going to be erected in the town of Pelham in Canada (more here). Most of what's needed is being donated, so in addition to the Aqsa Parvez garden Atlas readers have planted a grove of trees in American Independence Park in Jerusalem, Israel, through the Jewish National Fund.
The total cost is $5,000. We raised $ 4,985. 83. I completed the necessary arrangements today, and received this from the JNF.
Thank you again for recognizing Aqsa’s memory through JNF. The plaque will read as follows:
In Loving Memory of
All Victims of Honor Killings Worldwide
A laminated plaque will be created in addition to the plaque in Israel.
Thank you for your support of JNF and Israel, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
It will take about 24 months to put the plaque up at American Independence Park in Jerusalem, but we can do a GREAT dedication any time you go to Israel. I think we should all go when the plaque goes up.
Our plaque is 4 X 4. It will also be green to indicate our designation to the grove.
I want to thank my partner in crime Robert Spencer, for helping me orchestrate and navigate the various minefields, fire chief Scott McLeod for pursuing the Aqsa Parvez resolution in Pelham and for the memorial in honor of Aqsa in Peace park, and all the other Atlas readers who contributed, scouted, fought, wrote, shone in the fight for Aqsa. Mensches all.
Let me say what a pleasure it was dealing with the JNF. The cemetery, the murdering family, the dhimmi shadows at the University of Guelph, helpful media vs leftist ugly media, made trying to honor this poor girl a nightmare. No good deed goes unpunished.
JNF was the light. They were so kind and empathetic, I can't say enough. It was like waking from a bad dream. Ah, the promised land.
