2nd UPDATE (05/02/13): After a venue change, Pamela Geller will speak at a Jewish Defence League of Canada-hosted event at the Toronto Zionist Centre. The organization says, “As promised, no amount of police or public pressure will prevent JDL Canada from welcoming Pamela Geller and bringing you her important message about the real threats facing the West today.”


UPDATE (05/02/13): According to her website, Pamela Geller’s May 13 speech at Chabad Flamingo Synagogue near Toronto has been canceled. She blames “Islamic supremacist groups in Canada” and Canadian police for the cancellation and says the host organization, Jewish Defence League, is seeking a new location.


Pamela Geller will speak Monday, May 13, at Chabad Flamingo Synagogue near Toronto at an event hosted by the Jewish Defence League of Canada. Her talk is titled, “Freedom or Submission: The dangers of Islamic extremism and Western complacency.”

In announcing the event, Blog Wrath writes that Geller is “one of America’s foremost fighters for free speech and traditional values.”

The writer continues, “It is important to listen to people like her, because most Canadians still live in lethargy ignoring the danger. Many of us still think that the inherent niceness of Canada puts us above any troubles. And yet the signs are all around us.”

JDL-Canada’s website says the group is “committed to the restoration of pride and integrity to the Jewish People, the return of Jewish values, the reclamation of the Jewish sense of Justice and the abolition of hatred and bigotry.”
