JDL Canada will picket and protest the appearance of Dr. Reza Aslan at a fundraising event organized by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (formerly known as CAIR Canada).
The event is going to take place at:
Westin Harbour Castle Hotel, Toronto
Saturday, March 29, 2014 — 6:00 pm
Reza Aslan is a Board member of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), which has been established in court as a lobbying group for the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Aslan has tried to pass off Iran’s genocidally-minded former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a liberal reformer and has called on the U.S. Government to negotiate with Ahmadinejad himself, as well as with the jihad terror group Hamas.
Iranian-American writer and academic, Reza Aslan, compared Israeli company SodaStream to Adolf Hitler and implied that its newly minted spokesperson, actress Scarlett Johansson, was a Nazi supporter in a tweet that he quickly deleted, following the outrage caused by his anti-Semitic statement.
Here is a link to CBC’s Evan Solomon in a recent interview with NCCM’s Executive Director Ishaan Gardee attempting to explain that organization’s pending litigation against the federal government.
