Convention on Islam Featuring Some of World’s Worst Jew Haters and Terror Supporters

A few days ago, a convention called Reviving the Islamic Spirit took place at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.

A look at the program and speakers list reveals although the emphasis was on Islam, some of the worst Jew haters and Israel haters were featured. These include:

  • Convert-to-Islam Lauren Booth, who spoke about God & Me: Finding Faith in a Faithless World
  • American Muslims for Palestine founder Hatem Bazian, who was part of the panel Fear and Smear: Islam as the West’s New Bogeyman
  • Juan Cole, who gave a talk on Prophet of Peace Amid the Clash of Empires

Now for all I know, the views espoused at this convention were entirely peaceful and unrelated to Jews and Israel. My issue is with the speakers, who are honored and legitimized – although I suspect Israel came up.

Update: Meanwhile, the RIS Facebook page posted this quote by Jew hating terror supporter Hatem Bazian:

I am pretty sure it is Christmas, not April Fools.
