Jewish Defence League eyes setting up Montreal chapter

An ultra-nationalist and controversial Jewish-rights organization wants to establish a new chapter in Montreal, citing an increase in physical attacks against Jews.

The national director of the Jewish Defence League (JDL), an international organization “committed to the restoration of pride and integrity to the Jewish People,” says he has been contacted by Montrealers who would like to see a chapter set up in the city.

Meir Weinstein told CBC News he’ll be in town next week to meet Montrealers interested in establishing a new chapter of the organization, which already has a Canadian presence in Toronto.
