Toronto Synagogue Backs Out of Hosting Conference on Threats to Freedom: It’s ‘Islamophobic’

“A prominent synagogue in Toronto,” reports the Canadian Jewish News, has pulled out of a controversial event that it was scheduled to host in March.” The conference was set to focus on three threats to freedom: “[T]he radical left, radical Islamists and the radical right.” However, “after the event was criticized due to some controversial figures who were scheduled to speak at it, the congregation withdrew, citing security concerns.”

Toronto’s Beth Tikvah Synagogue has provided yet another example of the fact that speaking about the jihad threat today is the last taboo: It simply isn’t allowed in polite society.
