Neo­-Nazi Ken O’Keefe Spreads Hatred at U of T – B’nai Brith Canada

B’nai Brith Canada is expressing outrage over hateful and antisemitic lectures delivered by Ken O’Keefe at the Beit Zatoun Palestinian cultural centre and the University of Toronto on April 28 and 29. These lectures occurred just days before Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day,  which commemorates the 6-million Jews slaughtered by the Nazis during the Holocaust. “O’Keefe represents a type of virulent and murderous antisemitism not usually heard in  Canada’s public spaces,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada.  “He propagates the malicious lie of Jewish control over the media, government, judicial system  and financial sector, and even accuses Jews of assassinating former U.S. President John F.  Kennedy and staging the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Worst of all is his deplorable claim that Jews  invented the Holocaust in order to ‘steal Palestine from the Palestinians’. “The University of Toronto and other Canadian post­-secondary institutions have strict rules  against facilitating hate speech, and with good reason. How can Jewish students, staff or faculty  work safely on campus when a neo-­Nazi is allowed to spout lies and hatred against them just  down the hallway? We demand an investigation by the University of Toronto into this incident. “We believe that O’Keefe’s actions may contravene the hate speech provisions of the Criminal Code,  and B’nai Brith is following up with law enforcement in order to see him brought to account. We  will be providing our file to the Toronto Police.” Examples of hate speech from O’Keefe’s April 29 address at the University of Toronto (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3r8m8KyIEg):(page doesn`t exist anymore) 15:03 – Jews control the corporate world, the bank sector, Hollywood, the mass media, the Supreme Court, the courts
