Check out the fierce response to the traitorous quislings on the Toronto Board of Rabbis who condemned me and our fight for individual rights and equality for all before the law. Here is my speech in Canada that these Jewicidal rabbis wanted canceled.
"Letter writers outraged by Toronto Board of Rabbis statement" May 28, 2013 | Jewish Tribune (thanks to Gary)
In Toronto, several individuals expressed outrage at the Toronto Board of Rabbis (TBR) for its statement against Pamela Geller and the Jewish Defense League (JDL). Following are excerpts from public letters to the TBR from concerned community members and activists.
“You accuse Geller of being known for her ‘extreme criticism of Muslims in language that is intended to shock and ridicule,’ but you offer no examples of her words to support your claim.
“There can only be friendship with those in the Muslim community who respect our right to be proud Jews in our wonderful, diverse Canadian community. And there are many of them – but, sadly, not all of them. While you are quick to point out the ‘radical fringe’ in the Muslim community, I have been unsuccessful in finding your pointed criticism of the ‘radical fringe’ in our own community.”

“Some Jews in America did not take the lead up to the Holocaust seriously; some Jews, and even some rabbis, wanted to appease the leaders of the day, not upset their positions in American society, and counselled other Jews and those in power to ignore the pleas of other Jews in America…. Pamela Geller is one of the brave ones who is willing to put her career on the line and throw all her energy into an endeavour that other Jewish leaders have failed to understand/support and, most disturbingly, these Jewish leaders often reveal a disdainful and twisted reaction when people like Geller speak out…. The TRB is endangering their community, and especially Jews, when they condemn that which ought to be praised and supported and instead back those who are killing our people as we speak and have vowed to kill many more in the future.”
– Gary Gerofsky, Hamilton
“During the Holocaust, so too did many Jewish leaders, rabbis included, decide to keep a low profile and stifle cries by many individual Jews to intervene in Europe….. They didn’t want to rock the boat and, Heaven forbid, become controversial.
“The current war against Radical Islam that we are fighting is no less a threat. It demands that we speak up wherever and whenever possible. In your condemnation of Geller, you make blanket accusations without identifying even one example of her hate speech against Muslims.
“In fact, she is a friend to moderate Muslims. She helps protect Muslim women…. I didn’t read any comments from your board attacking Muslim terrorist groups.”
– Leon Kushner, Toronto
“Far too many are no better than the appeasers who, in the 1930s, felt it would be better to remain quiet and not rock the boat as the Nazis came to power…. In fact, they’re even worse, because now, with the lessons of history, the ‘official Jews’ should know what horror their appeasement of evil can bring.”
– Richard Klagsburn, Toronto
Yossi Winter, Toronto Zionist Council president, hails from Budapest. He told the Jewish Tribune:
“I grew up in Budapest, and the Nazis occupied Hungary just after my Bar Mitzvah. I remember that many Jews from the countryside were being taken to ‘work camps.’ A man once came to our synagogue to warn us about what was happening. He was dishevelled and distraught. He went up in the middle of the Torah reading and said that he escaped from Auschwitz, where he saw that thousands of Hungarian Jews were arriving daily on the trains and being taken to the gas chambers. He said, ‘Don’t believe that you will be taken to work camps. Save yourselves. Run to the forest and hide.’
“The community leaders said he was inciting – just like today with Pamela Geller – and they threw him out. It made such an impression on me. I don’t know what happened to him, but I still have nightmares about it.”
