To serve and restrict: Beware of police diversity units that threaten rabbis

“In Canada you have free speech — at least until the authorities say you don’t — and this week one such authority used his power to trample all over that fundamental freedom.

A talk at a synagogue just north of Toronto had to be moved after a member of the “diversity unit” of the York Regional Police Force essentially threatened the rabbi in charge. The synagogue had been rented by a group called the Jewish Defence League so they could host free-speech advocate and anti-jihadist Pamela Geller.”
