On November 6th, CIJR Canadian Institute of Jewish Research at Concordia University hosts a conference that will bring international activists and scholars to Montreal. The morning will be devoted to defining and analyzing the “delegitimization strategy” and scholarship. The afternoon will be devoted to combating it.
The morning participants will be Efraim Karsh, the distinguished historian, Sally Zerker, of York U., Asaf Ramirowsky, the Middle East Forum, Barbara Kay, the Canadian journalist, and Catherine Chatterley, U. of Manitoba.
Daniel Pipes (Hoover Institution/MEF) will be giving the keynote address over lunch, which is included in the admission.
I am especially excited about participating with the afternoon panellists who have been activists in the cause, Richard Landes, Mordechai Nisan, and Charles Small.
Richard Landes coined the term “Pallywood,” which visually exposes the creation of Palestinian victims’ films on the West Bank. This was revealed on Sixty Minutes.
Mordechai Nisan, a former Montrealer, has proposed a novel solution to the Palestine refugee problem in his new book, Only Israel West of the River, and Charles Small, also a former Montrealer, has been in the forefront of exposing Islamist anti-semitism.
The conference is free to students and $36 to the public.
If you have any interest in history, the people, or the land of Israel, you will want to attend this conference, and I urge you to do so.
Nov. 6, 9 – 4:30 Lunch included $36./free for students.
Location: Chevra Kadisha on Clanranald near Queen Mary
