yes, indeed he did: "The Hindu Conference of Canada is the largest and most influential Hindu political lobby and media relations organization in Canada, with thousands of members and supporters." - gives a good chuckle.

I'm not chuckling. A group of that mentality which attracts high profile supporters like Peter Kent and presents at UT-Rotman is not funny and rather alarming.

As we know, Kent has achieved a major boost on Team Harper. Perhaps we should make Iggy aware of this video and some of Kent's other nefarious connections.... like Weinstein and the CCD???

 We can all laugh at the buffoonery of Weinstein and Banerjee, but at the end of the day they are toxic and should not be underestimated.

excellent points. further up this thread, someone said that no one takes Ron Banerjee seriously, but actually many people do, including some in the media. they really think that he does represent the Hindu community, mainly i suspect, because of his tireless promotion.

he also gets invited to a lot of events and functions. recently, an immigrant group asked him to speak on, get this, diversity. i said to him: do they know that you hate muslims? what if there are some muslims there?

not everyone seems to know how to use google to check out someone. or they just don't think to do it. 

His organization is actually listed on the Canadian Race Relations Foundation website as a Facilitator, believe it or not

http://www.crr.ca/content/view/374/543/lang,french/ 

And apparently Weinstein is not the only person to address or deal with the Toronto School Board.... the Canadian Hindu Advocacy received 5000 dollars of taxpayer funding from the Toronto District School Board for an event called 'Hindu Parent Child Awareness', whatever that is... 

http://www.tdsb.on.ca/wwwdocuments/parents/parent_groups/docs/moe_special_project_allocation_list.pdf

Speaking engagements at Rotman School of Management. Funding from govt agencies, incl school boards. Close relations and speeches from Kent and Conservative pols at their hate rallies. Published editorials in large newspapers ... heaven knows if they get paid for that! How much more proof do people need that he is indeed 'taken seriously'.

No idea. But the fact that they got to speak to parents and kids .......

Their attitude towards schools and students can be viewed quite clearly in this piece they published in the Indo Caribbean Times titled 'Black Crime wave threatens Hindus'.... here is an exceprt that shows they are quite racist against blacks:

 

http://www.canhindu.com/dharamdial.pdf

 

Faced with low academic performance, political pressure from the black community

has also resulted in the creation of 'black-focused classes', with its associated

expense to taxpayers.

Our educational mandarins need to ponder why Chinese and Hindu students, despite

being visible minorities, seem to excel in school, are not adversely affected by the

Safe Schools Act, and do well without the benefit of any 'Asian-focused' curriculum.

 

We can only hope that Canadian businesses and universities will not succumb to

political correctness by pretending that graduates of these 'black focused classes' are

equivalent to mainstream grads.

I see our old friend Bernie Farber has *finally* said something about the JDL after years of treating them with kid gloves or even indulgence.

Troubling marriage for T.O.'s Jews

 

kinky friedman

I suspect Bernie had a hand in connecting Weinstein and getting him the influence he has. How otherwise could JDL get Kenny to ban Galloway, if not thru the help of the CJC ??

You see, this is why even smaller and more radical groups have more influence than people give them credit for... other organizations are secretly pumping them up, while publically holding them at arms length.

How does Weinstein get to ban Galloway? How does he speak at important events ? How does Kent show up at Banerjee's rallies ? How does Hindu Advocacy get TDSB funds? How does CCD have the influence it does?

CJC, Bnai, Fraser Institute, etc.... I'd wager good coin that they have something to do with all this.

re: "taken seriously"

That's why, as stated by Avigdor Lieberman, Canada is Israel's best friend or as described by George Galloway little more than a consulate for Benjamin Netanyahu. Here's more of ex IDF, Ex Kach spokesperson Meir Weinstein:

"At Ground Zero, Meir Weinstein, director of the Jewish Defense League in Canada, called Rabbi Kahane the first victim of Al Qaeda terrorism on US soil. He decried the proposed building of a Mosque at Grand Zero saying,

the ideology that will be taught in this mosque is the same ideology that is responsible for the murder of Rabbi Kahane. Weinstein said the mosque would represent Islamic dominance as does the mosque that stands on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. 'It is yet another attempt to make all non-Muslims subservient to them,' he said.

Weinstein declared that 'Rabbi Kahane's blood is crying out to us. Today the Arabs stand poised to annihilate us and we are obligated to keep Rabbi Kahane's message alive by preserving Israel as a Jewish state. If the Arabs won't acknowledge Israel as a Jewish state, then they will have to go,' he said,

as he called for the re-location of the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. 'What we need now, more than ever, are those who have a Jewish head attached to a Jewish fist, as Rabbi Kahane always said,' he said..

Israel Lobby Strikes Canada

http://sidew.net/2010/08/world/israeli-lobby-strikes-canada.html

"Meir Weinstein, a proxy of Israel and previously a member of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) has raised eyebrows in Canada over his ability to persuade Minister Kenney to ban MP George Galloway. Furthermore, after the JDL and Weinstein sued the Canadian Arab League for libel, Minister Kenney followed suit by setting a review to slash public funding to the Canadian Arab Federation.

A note that Minister Kenney has perhaps failed to mention as of late, but is certainly gaining attention, was the thwarting of a planned terrorist attack four months after 911 by the JDL. The FBI explains..."

Banerjee gets 300 bucks a shot from The Toronto Sun. he was recently reinstated after a lot of groveling. they told him to stay away from racist and most especially anti-muslim stuff. i know this because he forwarded me the email. after which he bad-mouthed them to me because he does not find them to be far right enough for his tastes. 

i told him that he should also not keep putting down "director of hindu advocacy" and that he needed to start distancing himself from those views if he wanted a writing career, which he does. on the articles published since then, he's deliberately included that tagline. i'm surprised that they let it go through because one you check the site, it's clear what he's up to. 

he also gets speaking gigs, some of them paid, BECAUSE of that listing on the Race Relations site. he doesn't see the irony in speaking about diversity while condemning other groups. he's really good at networking. he's articulate and looks good in a suit. plus, many people like to point to him and so they can say they have some non-white diversity represented. he's fooled a lot of people by claiming to speak for hindus. 

today he told me he was 'offended' by me and my alleged anti-Hindu views, presumably for sending him an article from the independent.co.uk detailing the some confessions in court which indicate that maybe it wasn't muslim extremists who blew some things up India, but instead hindu extremists - http://ind.pn/hhIGIs 

if i had to guess, i'd say that speaking fee of $3000 went directly into his pocket for living expenses. he's always scrabbling around for money, and does some VERY questionable things to get it. i helped him get a part-time job last year working on movie sets, but he didn't end up with too many hours once they got to know him a bit, and he never stopped bitching which doesn't endear you to the bosses.

i also pointed him in the direction of a bursary so he could take a college journalism course for 20% of the regular fee. i was hoping that he might end up learning something and moderate his views. no luck on that front. 

he has nothing good to say about Canada. it's a cesspool as far as he's concerned. while i know about his views on muslims and gays, i did not know about his views on blacks. he probably wisely decided not to say anything to me on that score because i'm black. 

at any rate, he's angry at me because i told him that we're not friends because i don't have friends like him. he asked me what we were and i said 'associates'. we didn't speak for a number of months because i told him that if he couldn't stop spewing racism and homophobia to me, then i was done with him.

we met back up when i was a guest speaker for the class he was in. i very carefully did not say anything about him to the instructor with whom i am friendly as i didn't want to be accused of trying to assert a negative influence. the class is over now, but i was invited to the after party and it became clear that during discussions, Banerjee had not been able to keep his bigotry in check and basically outed himself to his classmates, most of whom were better debaters than him and put him in his place many times, including at the after party, right in front of me.

I'm not advocating hate or violence but sometimes you have to fight someone armed with a sword with a sword.

Sadly,I don't live in T.O. , Counter protests are fine but when thugs try to get physical,you got to push back twice as hard.

I am NOT implying cross hairs and all the NRA zealocity plaguing the U.S. ...Just saying that I'd retaliate if physically attacked.

As mentioned by many a comment,this is toxic...This is a cancer...And what's even more disturbing is these groups have friends in our government.

I liked one idea of Iggy taking a page out of Harper's playbook and put together video which show Conservative ministers and/or senators buddying up to these extremists...terrorists..fascists....Especially because there are videos in existance out there and Canadians should see it.

It amazes me that NO ONE in the MSM is doing their JOB and presenting these FACTS to Canadians..And asshats like Don Cherry think of the media as left wing liberal pinkos...LOL!...I'd like to be taking the drugs he's taking because I'd probably need a few handfuls to believe the media is even BALANCED or to the centre.

Liberal,NDP and Bloc strategists should be on to this like flies on shit (the latter being literal)

But something tells me they won't.

Case in point about small groups achieving outsize influence thru connections with reputable groups.. this discussion jogged my memory:

Simon Wiesenthal Center. Respectable group, right?? They arranged a National Holocaust Memorial Day at Parliament Hill a few years back.

A friend of mine attended... and I emailed him just now. That event was a very posh affair, all the pols were involved, Harper spoke, dinner and receptions at Chateaux Laurier. Representatives from other communities attended, spoke and presented awards.

Who represented Hindus? Guess. Banerjee showed up with three people from his group, AND he had finangled some sort of honorarium for his group AND someone they flew in from the States. He brought in a chap named Rajiv Malhotra, a Princeton prof who runs a shady far right Hindu outfit called the Infinity Foundation. He has a blog on the Huff Post and lectures everywhere, including I believe his alma mater at Princeton.

And on top of that, Banerjee published in the Sun about the event, an article full of standard Hindutva propaganda about Muslims .. so looks like he pulled in another 300 bucks that day:

http://www.canhindu.com/holocaust.pdf

On Thursday, the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal will be hosting a ceremony on Parliament Hill for National Holocaust Memorial Day. Dignitaries, including Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney and Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day, will be presenting plaques to honor enablers of Holocaust legislation. A rabbi and the Hindu Conference of Canada will also be presenting awards.....................................................

Hindus, although too numerous to be driven from the South Asian Hindu homeland, have been subject to massive genocide and occupation since the 7th Century. American historian William Durant and Nobel Prize Winner VS Naipaul describe the Islamic occupation as the bloodiest saga in history, with an estimated 80 million slaughtered and over 50,000 temples smashed.

Today, political correctness and the threat of violence encourages the suppression of this ghastly chapter of history..........................................

In February, the Hindu Conference of Canada and the Speaker's Action Group jointly presented a seminar "Anti Semitism and Hinduphobia." The speakers revealed similarities in hatred against both communities often sprang from the same sources; those spreading the hate were closelyaligned with deniers of the existence of historical horrors. Holocaust deniers and those who seek to deny genocides, such as the obscenities perpetrated against Hindus, are the close cousins of the people who pulled the triggers. The adage "those who forget the lessons of history are doomed to repeat" is appropriate and timely.

 

blah blah blah ......he spouts on .....The SUN allowed him to publish THAT, paid him 300 bucks for it, and still he thinks they are not right wing enough for his tastes?

It certainly does match your description, Tari, of him as a smooth slick type who can network and speak and look respectable.

This Banerjee scumbag,the EDL and JDL...These are people who like to use intimidation...They are currently power tripping,saying and doing anything they like with impunity and no opposition.

I can guarantee you that the majority of Canadians don't know anything about these individuals or their groups.

We also have a government who probably paid for the EDL's trip to Canada and probably gives funds to the JDL and Banerjee's klan.

I'm not going to be intimidated..I'm going to stand up...I hope more people do the same....Most people are blissfully ignorant.

If the Opposition can't use these events,these organizations that are championed by The Reform Party,then we are in trouble.

I'm beginning to believe that even the Opposition may be friendly with these groups...Why wouldn't they be coming out like gang busters?

Are they afraid of offending these Neo-Nazi pigs?

There is nothing 'respectable' about the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal. They  also serve a violent zionist agenda. But instead of inviting Tommy fucking whatisname from the EDL, they invite John Bolton, Michael Chertoff and John Howard - and of course ALL  the various pols and  party leaders in Canada who kiss their ass and continue to support ethnic cleansing and other assorted crimes of Israel. Just because it's big and rich doesn't make it 'respectable'. Alan, the opposition is most definitely friendly towards anything Israel wishes. Avigdor Lieberman, on his last visit here,  specifically mentioned meeting with and having the approval of the opposition and 'without even having to explain anything to them' either. Sorry wish it wasn't like that but it is. Will the NDP be supporting Canadian participation in Durban this time around? They didn't last time. I believe the phrase 'never again' has been used with reference to the Nazi holocaust, but the holocaust of Palestinian people and their lands is in the final phases and the international community, especially Canada, does nothing but cheer the criminals on.

EDL Turns Its Fire On Student Anti-Fees Protesters

http://uaf.org.uk/2010/12/edl-turns-its-fire-on-student-anti-fees-protes...

"The leader of the English Defence League has turned his fire on students protesting against fees and cuts. The EDL is an organisation of racist thugs with links to the British National Party and other fascist groups. It has so far mainly targeted Muslims with vicious racism and violence..

Fascists within the EDL have been trying to 'harden up' the organisation's supporters and point them towards other traditional targets of fascism including trade unions and socialists as well as ethnic minorities..."

Cueball Cueball's picture

He used to come to this site under the name Rban. We had a good laugh the day he tried to pose the idea that the Brahmin are a "ethnicity/race" (they are generally lighter skinned), not a class, like the Jews of Europe, and efforts to take away their money and status were the same as the race war against Jews because (doncha know) Jews are also a "race" of the rich. There was a lot of confusion about his definitions and the relationship between race, religion, ethnicity, caste and class. Removing the caste system was tantamount to a racist class war against Brahmin, more or less, or so it seemed he was saying.

The fact that the JDL makes common cause with borderline psychotics like Banerjee, who use anti-Semitic tropes such as the idea that all Jews are rich, really tells you everything you need to know about the JDL.

NDPP

but the JDL's Weinstein has entree and influence with Kenney and Kent nonetheless apparently (mind you so does Avigdor Lieberman) .Here's Haaretz:

Jewish-British Anti-Muslim Event in Toronto Draws Protests, Arrests

http://www.haaretz.com/news/international/jewish-british-anti-muslims-ev...

"The local chapter of the Jewish Defense League, an extreme right organization founded by the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, broadcast a live speech by English Defense League founder Stephen Lennon, otherwise known as Tommy Robinson, drawing the ire of demonstrators..

In Israel, the Kach political party established by JDL founder Rabbi Meir Kahane was banned from running for the Knesset in 1992, due to its racist platform, but in recent years Kahane's followers have entered the Knesset under different names and some of Kahane's proposed policies are now unabashedly espoused by members of the current government."

and ours too..

When I saw the title in Banerjee's Financial Post 'India's Green Lead', I thought....'How strange, he's against global warming and is prasing green industry'. Odd for both Ron Banerjee and the National Post !!

Then I read it fully and understood that it fits perfectly with the Post viewpoint and ideology.

"Promoting the event, JDL Canada said 'the outrageous intimidation of Tommy Robinson is nothing more than a politicaly motivated crime on the part of the British establishment. They don't like the truth he speaks...The EDL needs international support to help it support the values of freedom that Britain was once famous for. Now is the time to step forward and stop Political Islam.

The British establishment is following the appeasement policies of Neville Chamberlain. We must revive the Winston Churchill policy of direct confrontation." - Meir Weinstein JDL Canada"

as if the policy wasn't everywhere in the ascendant already - GWOT anyone?

Banerjee has a 4 year science degree, from Dalhousie, if memory serves. i think he said biological sciences, but don't quote me on that part as he was a bit evasive on the specifics. of course, that education hasn't alleviated his recently expressed fear of catching HIV or AIDs just by being in close proximity to a gay guy, something i've had the pleasure of ridiculing him for over the last few weeks.

i had to look for these links before answering. yes, he's listed on the Race Relations site and that has lead to speaking gigs and invitations to events, some of them fairly high-brow. many planners seeking diversity are delighted to have the presence of someone who claims to represent a large number of hindus in canada and whose website claims: 

Our Core Values 

We believe in unity, diversity, and tolerance. 

This is why our directors and members include Hindus  hailing from many different parts of India. We also include Hindus from the Caribbean, Malaysia, and elsewhere.

We even have non- Hindu directors from different communities, including the Jewish, Serbian, and Anglo-Saxon ethnicities. 

Inter-faith events and alliances are an important goal for us. Because our organization is a beacon of hope for all communities and groups who share our passion for merit, freedom, and democracy.

This is why mainstream Canadians see us as not just a group that represents Hindu interests, but also a key defender of the values that define Canada.

‘DEFENDING HINDU VALUES, STANDING UP FOR CANADA’

Banerjee was born in France although he often claims that is not the case. as you know, he's Hindu - http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/religion/life-hindu2.html (very ironic piece by him given what we know about him) - but he's against non-white immigration to Canada, a country that he doesn't like and would rather not live in:

"Slam the doors on immigraton" - http://www.indocanadaoutlook.com/0410_slam_the_doors_on_immigration.html - note the publisher's disclaimer at the bottom of this particular piece

"Why immigrant professionals turn to terrorism" - http://www.canadafreepress.com/2007/banerjee090507.htm

those are not the only places where these articles and others in the same vein have appeared since he seems get reprinted a lot. 

while he wants to make a living as a writer and speaker, he's not really interested in the ethics of journalism, per se. his preferred writing type is pundit/opinion sort of stuff, kinda like Glenn Beck, who is one of his heroes. as is Sarah Palin. while he has endorsed the federal conservative party, he does not view them as "right enough". in other words, they're too liberal for his tastes. he is a huge fan of the tea party and wants to see something like that here in Canada.

Well, that expains why U of T's business school invites him to speak there: he somehow manages to parlay his science degree and his writing in the Financial Post into speaking gigs at these MBA schools also!

Note that he organized an event of Rotman and managed to get the Fraser Institute invited as well. We all know that Fraser, National Post, Conservatives..... and I guess now the 'Canadian Hindu Advocacy' ... are thick as thieves.

My friend who saw him at the Holocaust memorial at Parliament Hill says he has even spoken at the Toronto Board of Trade. Now that Rob Ford is in, if Banerjee has supported Ford, he may even get more entry into city functions.

Video/Photo Evidence of Arrests and Police Brutality Sought from Tues. Jan. 11 Demonstration

 

This is going out to ask folks who witnessed any police brutality (don't everyone yell at once!!) and especially any of the arrests to help turn the shit the cops pulled last night against them at the demonstration against the Islamophobic, fascist English Defence League on January 11th, 2011 at 788 Marlee and across the street on Lawrence Avenue.

These were community-led and organized protests, which had the support and respect of many who are united against the EDL's violent attacks on Arabs and Muslims, and the virulent hatred they spread which threatens the safety of our communities.

As we all know by now, there are already gangs of armed thugs roaming your neighbourhood carrying around guns and violently attacking marginalized and oppressed people and threatening the safety of our communities...and they, of course, protected those who hosted the EDL.

Two arrests, including the one where one young activist was beaten in full view of the crowd, and the arrest of a peaceful Jewish community member, were filmed. Two videocameras were confiscated, both containing video evidence of these violent arrests. Those filming the arrests were themselves arrested, one for "assault" and one for "obstruct police". Both charges were dropped, but one camera has not be returned and is being "held as evidence", the other was returned but all video and images had been erased by the Toronto Police.

Guess Adam's not a nobody anymore. Happily, lots of people were there filming and taking pictures...and they didn't grab all our cameras, which means there's plenty of evidence against the police that could be used to put them in their place.

Any and all information that can be gathered including:

-badge numbers and names
-photos and/or video of any injuries
-personal stories/testimony of what you saw, what went down (dated and signed)

and especially, any photo and video evidence you were able to collect of the arrests and of demonstrators who were attacked.

This is where whatever you have can be sent:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Canadian Arab Federation Denounces Racist Rally

Arab Canadians and all other racialized communities are alarmed by the rise of extremist groups that are exploiting the global economic crisis, to stir up racist and anti-immigrant sentiments that contradict the aspirations of Canadians who strive to develop greater inter-cultural knowledge, understanding, respect and harmony.

On January 11, the Jewish Defence League (JDL) held a rally in Toronto in support of the English Defence League (EDL). The EDL, formed in 2009, has organized violent street marches in the UK targeting Arabs and Muslims. In November 2010 its leader was charged with assaulting a police officer.

The JDL was founded in 1968 by Meir Kahane, a US extremist who advocated violence against Palestinians and Arabs. The FBI in its 2000/2001 Report labeled the JDL "a right-wing terrorist group," and has accused it of plotting terrorist attacks within the United States. In Canada the JDL operates with impunity and is led by Meir Weinstein, a longtime follower of Kahane.

The Canadian Arab Federation (CAF) views positively the statements made by Bernie Farber, CEO of the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) "in condemning the intolerance and violence that the English Defence League (EDL) represents" and for admitting that "the JDL condones the indefensible actions of violent extremists."

CAF finds it regrettable that the CJC has looked the other way over the past few years as the JDL has organized, grown, and been busy on campuses and even in high schools recruiting youth. Had any other group said about Jews what the JDL has long said about Muslims, the CJC would have been rightly outraged and insisted that such a group be ostracized. Instead of doing that, the CJC has been attempting to ostracize and marginalize Independent Jewish Voices for the "crime" of criticizing the colonialist and racist State of Israel.

CAF applauds Independent Jewish Voices (IJV), International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAN), and Not in Our Name (NION): Jewish Voices Opposing Zionism, for denouncing the Jewish Defence League's (JDL) rally in Toronto.

Now that the JDL's extremism has been exposed, the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) needs to clarify its stance regarding the JDL and to confront the real threat such Jewish extremism poses to Canadians. CAF calls upon the CJC to join the above Jewish groups in denouncing and ostracizing extremist elements in the community that promote hatred and violence against Arabs, Muslims and all other racialized groups.

"A sea-change is about to occur in the way Canadian Jewish community advocacy is conducted on both a regional and a national level. According to the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) the change is being led by the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy (CIJA) which is seeking to centralize control of most of the host of advocacy agencies it administers...

and created a 'single Jewish public affairs organization encompassing the national and regional level.' The new entity would also work ' in close cooperation with' and 'operate under' the UIA (United Israel Appeal) Federations Canada system. Since its founding in January 2004, CIJA 'oversees' and coordinates the advocacy work of Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC), Quebec-Israel Committee (QIC), National Jewish Campus Life (NJCL) and University Outreach Committee (UOC), effectively controlling all these groups both politically and financially.

Its declared objective is to 'ensure our voice is heard where it counts - in government, media and on campus.'..However, what they are really worried about is their faltering image on campuses and among the Canadian public at large, hence the 'sea-change' to 'centralize control' for 'Israeli advocacy in Canada...

We ask the people of Canada: Isn't it now the time to clean house in the main stream media, provincial and federal government offices of those whose main concern is self-interest and the interests of a foreign government, not the interest of the Canadian people?"

excellent points. further up this thread, someone said that no one takes Ron Banerjee seriously, but actually many people do, including some in the media. they really think that he does represent the Hindu community, mainly i suspect, because of his tireless promotion.

he also gets invited to a lot of events and functions. recently, an immigrant group asked him to speak on, get this, "diversity". i said to him: do they know that you hate muslims? what if there are some muslims there?

Banerjee has a bug up his rear about 'hinduphobia' - http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/1635 - he gets very angry when you ask him questions about problems in India such as the extreme poverty that many there face, the still in existence caste system, i think he's a Brahmin (spelling?) which is the highest caste. he also describes himself as a 'hindu nationalist'. 

he dismisses bride burnings as a myth, dismisses the problem of illiteracy, etc. he only wants to talk about the high level of education which some Indians have managed to achieve as well as the business climate which is doing well in one particular India province. the rest he sweeps under the rug or dismisses as 'hinduphobia' or propoganda from 'lying Islamists and Sikhs'. 

i don't know if he got 300 bucks for the article which Alan Smithee mentioned, but he did for this one

http://www.torontosun.com/comment/columnists/2010/12/08/16479261.html?comments_page=4&id=16479261#/comment/columnists/2010/12/08/pf-16479256.html

sometimes he writes for NP as well, not often enough to suit him, but here's an example

http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/05/27/comment-the-better-way-is-in-new-delhi/

and here's him in the Financial Post, not sure what he got, but i do believe he mentioned that he was paid

http://opinion.financialpost.com/2010/09/09/india%E2%80%99s-green-lead/#more-4891

he also gets paid to maintain the main JDL site. you'll notice it looks just like the Hindu Advocacy site because his web skills are limited. another part of his income comes from the porn industry.

His organization is actually listed on the Canadian Race Relations Foundation website as a Facilitator, believe it or not

http://www.crr.ca/content/view/374/543/lang,french/ 

And apparently Weinstein is not the only person to address or deal with the Toronto School Board.... the Canadian Hindu Advocacy received 5000 dollars of taxpayer funding from the Toronto District School Board for an event called 'Hindu Parent Child Awareness', whatever that is... 

http://www.tdsb.on.ca/wwwdocuments/parents/parent_groups/docs/moe_special_project_allocation_list.pdf

Speaking engagements at Rotman School of Management. Funding from govt agencies, incl school boards. Close relations and speeches from Kent and Conservative pols at their hate rallies. Published editorials in large newspapers ... heaven knows if they get paid for that! How much more proof do people need that he is indeed 'taken seriously'.

i had to look for these links before answering. yes, he's listed on the Race Relations site and that has led to speaking gigs and invitations to events, some of them fairly high-brow. many planners seeking diversity are delighted to have the presence of someone who claims to represent a large number of hindus in canada and whose website claims: 

Our Core Values 

We believe in unity, diversity, and tolerance. 

This is why our directors and members include Hindus  hailing from many different parts of India. We also include Hindus from the Caribbean, Malaysia, and elsewhere.

We even have non- Hindu directors from different communities, including the Jewish, Serbian, and Anglo-Saxon ethnicities. 

Inter-faith events and alliances are an important goal for us. Because our organization is a beacon of hope for all communities and groups who share our passion for merit, freedom, and democracy.

This is why mainstream Canadians see us as not just a group that represents Hindu interests, but also a key defender of the values that define Canada.

‘DEFENDING HINDU VALUES, STANDING UP FOR CANADA’

Banerjee was born in France although he often claims that is not the case. as you know, he's Hindu - http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/religion/life-hindu2.html (very ironic piece by him given what we know about him) - but he's against non-white immigration to Canada, a country that he doesn't like and would rather not live in:

"Slam the doors on immigraton" - http://www.indocanadaoutlook.com/0410_slam_the_doors_on_immigration.html - note the publisher's disclaimer at the bottom of this particular piece

"Why immigrant professionals turn to terrorism" - http://www.canadafreepress.com/2007/banerjee090507.htm

those are not the only places where these articles and others in the same vein have appeared since he seems get reprinted a lot. 

while he wants to make a living as a writer and speaker, he's not really interested in the ethics of journalism, per se. his preferred writing type is pundit/opinion sort of stuff, kinda like Glenn Beck, who is one of his heroes. as is Sarah Palin. while he has endorsed the federal conservative party, he does not view them as "right enough". in other words, they're too liberal for his tastes. he is a huge fan of the tea party and wants to see something like that here in Canada.

when it's suggested he take himself back to America where he claim's he's apparently worked previously (and is evasive on the reasons why he can't go back there), or perhaps to India, he says that's 'a typical redneck response' to his political views.

At Long Last Farber Forced to Denounce JDL - Firebrand blogspot

http://canadian-firebrand.blogspot.com/2011/01/at-long-last-farber-force...

"Now that the JDL's extremism is undeniable will Farber finally do what he should have done years ago and work to ostracize the JDL with the Jewish Community and try to deny them the space to organize? Somehow I doubt it. There would be a powerful poltiical price to pay out. Farber lacks the integrity needed to root out the JDL.

He'd much rather ostracize and marginalize Independent Jewish Voices for the crime of criticizing Israel than to consistently oppose the JDL, an organization rooted in a variety of ultra-nationalisms that can only be called fascism.

Let's see if he issues a similar or hopefully stronger missive in the Canadian Jewish News. Will he actually meet with the principals of Jewish Day Schools and urge them to ban the JDL? Will he ask the UJA to freeze them out?

Or can we expect this summer, yet again, the sight of Meir Weinstein walking down the road of the annual Walk with Israel like a conquering hero or some fascist version of the King of Kensington kibbitzing and patting the back of every 'community leader' he encounters, including Farber, as if Weinstein is a somebody, a Big Man on the Jewiish campus?

Independent Jewish Voices and its predecessor, the Alliance of Concerned Jewish Canadians, has warned about the JDL and urged Farber and others to denounce him. WHile I'm sure we're grateful that, however late in the day, Farber has finally seen the light. let's see if this epiphany will last. Farber's started talking the talk. Will he and the 'leadership' of the Jewish community now walk the walk?"

it would also be great if a legitimate mainstream Canadian Hindu organization denounced Banerjee and made it clear that he is NOT the spokesperson for their community as he keeps claiming. 

he likes to compare his Hindu Advocacy to the UK's Hindu Forum - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindu_Forum_of_Britain - http://www.hfb.org.uk/ - which by the way made this claim in 2007: "The Hindu Forum of Britain claims hundreds of mostly Sikh and Hindu girls have been intimidated by Muslim men who take them out on dates before terrorising them until they convert." - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-437871/Police-protect-girls-forced-convert-Islam.html - depending which page of their website you check, they are an umbrella organization of either 275+ or 400+ groups, and claim a budget of 34 million pounds per annum.

Somewhere in the archives here is a picture that I posted that was taken of Bernie Farber's Facebook account that included Meir Weinstein as a Facebook friend of Bernie Farber. That friendship ended soon after this information was posted here. That is good.

It is also good that Farber has further distanced himself from these scumbags and their friends the EDL.

As a member of and somone fairly involved in the "Jewish community", I can tell you firsthand that neither Farber or Weinstein is taken seriously at all by more than a handful of Canadian Jews. They are completely irrelevant and dwarfed in influence by so many other people and do not deserve the attention they're getting either here or in the mainstream media.

It's rather sad, really, that both have become something of (self appointed) "representatives" of the community and that lazy journalists have them in their rolodex and call them whenever they need a comment on any story with a Jewish element to it.

I think most Jews look at them the way most African Americans look at someone like Al Sharpton, e.g. "Shut up, get a real job and stop embarrassing the rest of us."

What's more ... the largest Hindu temples are deeply, deeply in bed with the Conservatives. One of the biggest temples is the Vishnu Mandir in Richmond Hill, their leader is a brain surgeon Dr Doobay.

This temple is THE destination for every Conservative politician. Everyone from Peter Kent to Fantino addresses the Vishnu Mandir, then gets connected and whisked off to fund raisers from there... and now the Hudak provincial Tories are also on this circuit

"Zionazi" implies the whole trope that Zionists are like Nazis and Israel is like Nazi Germany. The term doesn't advance discourse, it's just inflammatory and, because of the history of Nazi oppression, alienates all Jews regardless of whether or not they are Zionist. It's insensitive.

Tari, the problem goes well beyond the Canadian Hindu Advocacy. Consider this: along with Banerjee, one of the founders of the former Hindu Conference of Canada is ... NARESH RAGHUBEER !!

 
http://forums.sulekha.com/forums/coffeehouse/this-is-how-you-breed-terrorists.htm

These are examples of the type of comments that prompted the Canadian Coalition for Democracies, an Ottawa-based group, to urge Immigration Minister Monte Solberg to deny ul Haq entry into this country. Immigration officials say they will not bar his entry into Canada.
"It is sad to see that some people might want to bring their hate to Canada," said Naresh Raghubeer of the Hindu Conference of Canada.
"We knew of (ul Haq), but we were not able to get a picture of what he said here," said Bernie Farber of the Canadian Jewish Congress. "But we know what he has said in other places."
Who is Naresh Raghubeer? Exceutive Director of the Canadian Coalition for Democracies AND National Policy director of the CANADA-INDIA FOUNDATION.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada_India_Foundation
There's where it really gets scary. Canada-India Foundation is full of heavy hitters. The group has a lot of influence with the Conservative Party and has got the Canadian govt to open relations with Narendra Modi's Gujurat BJP.
And who do you think gets VIP seats and invitations when CIF is addressed by Stephen Harper ?? That's right ,, Banerjee is always there at the front seats:
http://www.canadaindia.org/papers--speeches/prime-minister-stephen-harpers-speech-at-the-canada-india-foundations-first-annual-gala-nite.html
And now Canada-India Foundation will get the Conservatives to allow Narendra Modi to visit Canada:
http://www.thestar.com/news/world/article/921454--canada-weighs-opening-to-controversial-indian-politician
And as you know Modi is a big hero to the Canadian Hindu Advocacy and Banerjee, as seen in this Financail Post editorial penned by BAnerjee called 'Gujurat: India's Star State':
http://www.canhindu.com/starstate.pdf
This problem is far beyond Banerjee's organization. It is widespread within many of the elite of the Canadian Hindu community, as it is also with that Hindu Forum group in the UK.

So I did some research on Google regarding Mr. Farber. I know people like to make wild statements from time to time but like this man or hate him he is taken very seriously both inside the Jewish community and in the general coommunity.

He has met with virtually all political leaders here and in israel. he and his organization have been lauded by the Pm, Premiers of Ontario, Quebec and BC; he has written a large number of articles published in newspapers across canada and even in the USA.

I guess I understand why you would want to try to minimize this guys importance but you will have to do better than that.

If the term is offensive it is because of the reality it describes: a violent, zionist, right-wing, Kahanist hate-group, led by an ex IDF member, in my city,  has allied his organization with a vicious, out and out racist, Muslim hating, white supremacist, nazi formation, the EDL.

Zionist + Nazi = Zio-Nazi. As we both know there are many Jews not Zionists. I reject "all Jews" are 'alienated' by the descriptor, which is, alas, accurate. Sometimes consciousness is painful. The best I can do is a hyphen.

ps  -  it is perhaps not the first time...

"this strategy of enlisting Europe's virulent Jew-Haters, and of aligning with the most vicious movements and regimes as financial and military patrons of a Zionist colony in Palestine, did not exclude the Nazis.."

JDL-EDL : Zio-Nazis Out Now!

 

so Bernie et al are unaware of the 'security' outside - provided by the JDL and Hindu Advocacy - which clashed with the ARA and 'assisted' the police with arrests, including the punching in the head of an ARA member as they were being handcuffed?

CANADIAN HINDU ADVOCACY and JDL-CANADA security teams work with Toronto Police to repel violent assault by Islamists - http://www.canhindu.com/jdlhindudefence.doc

"The CANADIAN HINDU ADVOCACY security team, which has been training with JDL at the Toronto Zionist Center, joined JDL security tonight to deter ARA and Islamic attackers.

 Together, Hindu and JDL security assisted Toronto Police in making a number of arrests as several masked attackers blocked roads and violently assaulted police.

 In the conflict that ensued, Hindu and JDL defenders succeeded in repelling the violent assault. The fleeing attackers abandoned a large amount of paraphernalia."

of course, only ARA people were arrested after the police on horseback charged their line. also, weren't 3 of the 4 arrested released later?  also, there an accusation has been made that the Police erased at least one video camera's footage, so it's possible that the missing footage shows a real melee where fists are flying on many sides. and now that Bernie has finally said something negative about the JDL, he's upset that The Canadian Arab Federation is in agreement?

 

 

alan smithee alan smithee's picture

I'd like to see the footage of JDL and CHA members assaulting protesters.

The fact that police attacked the protesters and allowed these domestic neo-nazis to take liberties on protesters is appalling to say the least.

The fact that police would go so far as to confiscate or destroy video evidence is even more sickening.

I hope protesters atleast TRIED to retaliate when these goons got physical.

If these neo-fascists want to try to intimidate people with their fists,I can't wait for a similar event to happen here in Montreal...I'll happily oblige their challenge.
