Canadian university accused of ‘banning’ Jewish students-Suit filed in Ontario seeks legal review, damages for alleged discrimination, starting when the student government endorsed BDS in January-By Matt Lebovic August 14, 2016, 5:47 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

For the first time, a Jewish or pro-Israel organization is taking legal action against the faculty and student associations of a Canadian university.On August 3, Hasbara Fellowships Canada filed a formal complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, where it accused the student and faculty associations of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) and Durham College of discriminating against Jewish students and Israel, following the banning of Hasbara Fellowships Canada from participating in a student association-sponsored “Social Justice Week” five months ago.For activists affiliated with Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the university-funded Social Justice Week meant an opportunity to advance Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activities against the Jewish state. When it came to the request of pro-Israel students to participate, however, Hasbara Fellowships Canada was banned.In an email sent by UOIT’s faculty association to Robert Walker, national director of Hasbara Fellowships Canada, the reason for banning a Jewish student group at the publicly funded university was explained:“The Student Association passed a motion endorsing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement [in January],” read the faculty association’s email to Walker. “Your organization seems closely tied to the state of Israel and as such, it would be against the motion to provide any type of resources to your organization,” said the email.According to Walker, this ban was “the most open incident of discrimination targeting Jewish students in Canada from a student government I have ever seen,” as he told The Times of Israel.“These associations are an embarrassment to the university, as is the fact that several dozen Jewish students who we are working with are uniformly reporting on being intimidated and harassed,” said Walker. “The Jewish students need to know we have their backs, and that we take it extremely seriously,” he said.Tension erupted in January when the student association passed a BDS motion against Israel, allowing both the student and faculty associations to ban engagement with Israel-affiliated students and organizations in every aspect of campus life, as per the movement’s “non-normalization” policy.Since the BDS motion, dozens of Jewish students have “come out of the woodwork” and been added to Hasbara Fellowships’ roll call, said Walker. Most of these students were “unaffiliated” and were not involved in Israel advocacy beforehand, but recognized the necessity of taking action, he added.With no sign the student assembly will rescind its ban on Israel this fall, Walker and pro-Israel students fight one battle at a time in the war for Israel’s reputation on the pristine campus, not far from Lake Ontario and Toronto’s Jewish community of 200,000.“We are demanding that both associations publicly apologize to Hasbara Fellowships Canada and repeal any discriminatory policies in place,” said Walker, whose organization was founded in 2001 by Aish HaTorah, and has a presence on dozens of North American campuses. Aish HaTorah has been compared to the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) on the UOIT campus in recent months, including by the student association’s former president.‘They will do anything to shut me up’-On the UOIT campus, it is fair to call Shanel Jacobs the loudest voice for Israel. Currently in Israel on Hasbara Fellowships’ training program, Jacobs was born in the Jewish state and grew up in Toronto. She would have been the student sitting behind Hasbara Fellowships’ “Israel Peace Week” table during Social Justice Week in March, handing out materials on coexistence and mutual dialogue.Having spent four years on campus, Jacobs was “horrified” by the faculty association’s response to her group’s request for a table, and by the student association’s passage of BDS in January.“Student government has been so hostile toward Israel that pro-Israel students have not even been allowed to speak at meetings,” said Jacobs, who has been harassed on campus for being an Israel activist, she said.“It’s like I am living in Israel on my own campus,” she said. “I am surrounded by people who do not like me and will do anything to shut me up,” said Jacobs, whose father is from India’s B’nai Israel Jewish community.Having considered starting her own pro-Israel club, Jacobs said such a group would immediately be “shut down” by BDS-aligned student leaders. To work around the likely ban, Jacobs and several other students advocated using the perspective of human rights for all people in the Middle East. But now, as a Hasbara Fellowships-trained activist, Jacobs said she is less shy about discussing — for instance — Palestinian media incitement, the Hamas charter, or what happened after Israel’s 2005 disengagement from Gaza.“We are learning not to repeat the argument that Students for Justice in Palestine is making,” said Jacobs. “This is about using our own dialogue and telling our own story despite intense efforts to stifle pro-Israel voices,” she said.Hasbara Fellowships’ suit filed with Ontario’s both powerful and symbolic Human Rights Tribunal is requesting $50,000 in reparations from the student and faculty associations — “reasonable damages for breach of the Code and blatant and unabashed discrimination that was instigated and maintained by the respondents that was directed against me,” wrote Walker in the filing, calling the faculty association’s treatment of Jewish and pro-Israel students “blatant discrimination.”Additionally, Walker’s filing called for a “mandatory review” of the faculty and student associations’ policies and resolutions to ensure compliance with the Human Rights Code, as well as a mandatory annual training for the groups’ executives and staff “on identifying and eliminating anti-Semitism within their policies and practices.”The Canadian Jewish community has been weighing in on the situation in recent days, including pro-Israel columnist Diane Weber Bederman, who argued a double-standard applies to discrimination against Jews and Israel on campus. She called Hasbara Fellowships’ filing with the Human Rights Tribunal a necessary step to halt the momentum of BDS against Israel on Canadian campuses.“In Canada, our Liberal Government has told us over and over that discrimination will not be tolerated in our diverse and tolerant, inclusive and accommodating country,” wrote Bederman. “We must win this action so that the Jewish students around the world will know that hate toward Jews for being Jewish and hate toward Israelis for beings Israeli will not be countenanced,” she wrote.

Egypt Christians stage rare Cairo protest demanding rights-Amid surge in attacks by Muslims in outlying areas, Copts demand better protection from government, courts-By Brian Rohan August 14, 2016, 1:25 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL-AP

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian Christians staged a rare protest in downtown Cairo on Saturday to demand the government uphold their rights, saying they are being treated as second-class citizens in the Muslim-majority country.Standing on the steps of a courthouse in the capital, some three dozen demonstrators braved Egypt’s draconian protest ban to hold signs aloft, calling for their legal rights to be upheld in disputes between Muslims and Christians.“I am an Egyptian citizen above all,” said Michael Armanious, a Christian demonstrator. “We pay taxes, we serve in the army, we are dealing with all the same economic problems in Egypt with the rest of our countrymen, why should we have fewer rights?” he said, flanked by roadblocks and equal numbers of police, who forced the crowd to disperse after an hour.Christians make up some ten percent of Egypt’s 91 million people. They sided overwhelmingly with Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi when he overthrew an Islamist president in 2013, paving his way to the presidency. But some have recently voiced concerns that their lot has not improved under the former general, despite his promises.Interfaith disputes are common in the countryside. Most often they arise over mixed-faith love affairs or the building of churches. Many confrontations result in violence perpetrated against Christians or their property, and are resolved by extra-judicial councils of local elders that favor the Muslim side.The Christians demonstrating Saturday oppose such councils and are insisting such cases be brought to court.Last month, the leader of Egypt’s Coptic Christian church warned of increased attacks on Christians, saying national unity is being “defaced.” Pope Tawadros II told Egyptian lawmakers that since 2013 there have been 37 sectarian attacks on Christians — nearly an incident a month.The comments came after a string of attacks hit the southern province of Minya, home to a large Christian community but also a substantial concentration of extremist Islamic groups. In July, a Muslim mob stabbed a Christian to death over a personal feud, while days earlier, in two separate incidents, mobs attacked and torched houses of Christians over a rumor that they intended to convert buildings into churches. In May, a Muslim mob stripped an elderly Christian woman and paraded her in the street following a rumor that her son had an affair with a Muslim woman.Lawmakers say that parliament is currently drafting a new law to criminalize actions that undermine national unity, as well as a law that eases regulations over the construction of churches, which are severely restricted.

Evangelical Lutherans to US: End Israel aid if settlements stay-At triennial assembly, church also wants to halt investment in companies profiting from Israeli occupation, urges Obama to recognize Palestine-By JTA August 14, 2016, 11:45 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America approved a resolution calling on the US government to end all aid to Israel if Israel does not stop building settlements and “enable an independent Palestinian state.”Voting at its triennial assembly in New Orleans that ended Saturday, the church also sought a halt to all investment in companies that profit from Israel’s occupation and called on US President Barack Obama to recognize the State of Palestine.The aid vote, which passed 751-162, urged church members to “call on their US Representatives, Senators and the Administration to take action requiring that to continue receiving US financial and military aid, Israel must comply with internationally recognized human rights standards as specified in existing US law, stop settlement building and the expansion of existing settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, end its occupation of Palestinian territory, and enable an independent Palestinian state.”The resolution also called on Obama not to prevent the application of the State of Palestine for full membership in the United Nations and, in coordination with the United Nations Security Council, to “offer a new, comprehensive and time-bound agreement to the governments of Israel and Palestine, resulting in a negotiated final status agreement between Israel and Palestine leading to two viable and secure states with a shared Jerusalem.”Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Votes Overwhelmingly for Investment Screen! https://t.co/muBnYuG5gi #Israel pic.twitter.com/e2yrQwxnWN— IJV Canada (@IndJewishVoices) August 13, 2016-In the divestment resolution, which passed 821-92, the church adopted a human rights-based investment screen for its social responsibility funds, to ensure the church is not profiting from human rights abuses, and mentioned the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by name. It also called for the church to “increase positive investment in Palestine.”The resolutions were spearheaded by a group within the church called Isaiah 58, which bills itself as “a group of Lutherans working for peace and justice in the Holy Land.”The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America claims about 4 million members in nearly 10,000 congregations.

UN says Gaza employee diverted rubble on PA instructions-Waheed Bossh, 38, is charged by Israel with transferring 300 tons of rubble to help build a Hamas naval facility-By AFP August 14, 2016, 3:05 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

The United Nations on Saturday said a Gaza employee had diverted tons of rubble on instructions from the Palestinian Authority (PA) days after Israel charged him with aiding Islamist movement Hamas.Engineer Waheed Abd Allah Bossh, 38, who worked for the UN Development Program (UNDP), was arrested on July 16 and accused by Israel of being recruited by a Hamas member to “redirect his work for UNDP to serve Hamas’s military interests.”He was charged in an Israeli court with diverting 300 tons of rubble from a UNDP project in the coastal enclave to a Hamas operation to build a jetty for its naval force.Hamas, the Islamist rulers of the Gaza Strip since 2007, have denied any involvement.UNDP said that after reviewing Bossh’s charge sheet — which was made public on Tuesday — it had “established that the rubble in question was transported to its destination according to written instructions from the Ministry of Public Works and Housing of the Palestinian Authority as to where it should be placed.”“UNDP has full documentation on the process flow, the instructions and transportation of the rubble,” it said in a statement.UNDP had said on Tuesday that it was “greatly concerned by the allegation” and promised “a thorough internal review of the processes and circumstances surrounding the allegation.”The charge sheet’s publication came days after the Gaza head of US-based NGO World Vision was charged with passing millions of dollars of international aid money to Hamas.Since 2008, Israel has fought three wars in Gaza with Hamas, which is branded a terrorist organization by Israel, the United States and the European Union.Israel has long alleged that aid has been diverted to Hamas, claims rejected by the NGOs involved and the UN.Aid workers privately admit to pressure from Hamas.

PA agency: Israel to hand over Palestinian terrorists’ bodies-Prisoners group does not specify how many corpses will be released for burial, but says one shooter’s remains to be delivered to family Wednesday-By Dov Lieber August 15, 2016, 7:31 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

A Palestinian Authority agency dealing with prisoners said Monday that Israel has agreed to hand over for burial the bodies of an unspecified number of Palestinian terrorists killed while carrying out attacks on Israelis over the past year.The body of Muhammad Jamal al-Kalouti, 21, from Kafr Aqab in East Jerusalem, who shot at a Jerusalem light rail car on March 9, near the Old City’s New Gate, seriously wounding one Israeli, was set to be the first remains handed over on Wednesday, a statement from the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs said.The statement did not specify whose remains would be released next or how many bodies of attackers Israel had agreed to hand over overall.The conditions for the transfer of al-Kalouti’s body are that the funeral will be held at midnight and have, at most, 25 people present. Additionally, it imposes a NIS 25,000 ($6,500) deposit to be transferred to Israeli authorities that will be returned to the relatives if the funeral is carried out in accordance with the restrictions.Israeli officials argue the funerals for the deceased attackers — who were killed as they stabbed, shot, or rammed Israelis with cars over the past 10 months — often turn into mass rallies in support of Palestinian terrorism, and withhold their bodies until the relatives agree to hold subdued burials that don’t include calls for further attacks.There was no immediate confirmation from the Israeli authorities.Earlier in August, Israel agreed to release the body of Bahaa Allyan, who was killed while carrying out a deadly attack on a Jerusalem bus in which three Israelis were murdered.Israel Police summoned Muhammad Allyan to a meeting, and offered to return the remains of his son Bahaa, if the family agreed to bury him in a private, late-night ceremony with only 15 people in attendance, the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency reported.According to the Allyan’s lawyer Muhammad Mahmoud, the East Jerusalem family declined to sign the agreement, citing the small number of mourners allowed to attend.The offer was made following a petition submitted to the High Court of Justice by Mahmoud earlier this year on behalf of the Allyans and the family of another deceased Palestinian terrorist.In response to Mahmoud’s petition, the High Court of Justice last month ordered the Israel Police to explain why it was withholding the bodies of deceased East Jerusalem attackers and had not returned the remains to their families for burial. The court gave police three weeks from the July 23 ruling to deliver an explanation.Earlier this year, the court intervened in a similar case, and ordered authorities to return the body of a Palestinian woman killed in May as she attempted to stab Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint north of Jerusalem.At the time, police told the court they feared the funerals for the deceased attackers would turn into mass rallies in support of further terror attacks.The practice has been implemented inconsistently, particularly as the bodies of terrorists who attacked Israelis in the West Bank are under the purview of the Defense Ministry, while those killed within Israel proper are under the jurisdiction of the Public Security Ministry.The issue has become a sore point with Palestinians. Posters of the dead are plastered on walls in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, and residents hold frequent demonstrations calling for the release of the bodies.Since October, 35 Israelis and four foreign nationals have been killed in a wave of Palestinian terrorism and violence. At least 214 Palestinians have been killed, some two-thirds of them while attacking Israelis, and the rest during clashes with troops, according to the Israeli army.Tamar Pileggi contributed to this report.

Sharansky to Israel’s regulators: Shut down ‘repugnant, immoral’ binary options-Jewish Agency chief urges all immigrants and other potential employees to steer clear of the industry, ‘which uses immoral methods to entice innocent victims’-By David Horovitz and Simona Weinglass August 15, 2016, 7:16 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

Branding the binary options industry in Israel “repugnant,” “immoral” and profoundly damaging to the country, Natan Sharansky on Monday urged Israeli regulators to do everything in their power to close it down.Sharansky, who heads the Jewish Agency, the primary organization responsible for immigration and absorption of Diaspora Jews in Israel, said the Agency is alerting all immigrants and other potential employees to steer clear of the industry, “which uses immoral methods to entice innocent victims.”In a statement issued a day after the head of the Israel Securities Authority, Shmuel Hauser, told The Times of Israel that the global scam perpetrated by Israel-based firms is doing immense harm to Israel’s reputation and promised to tackle the fraudulent industry, Sharansky said he had been “dismayed to learn of the extensive manipulation perpetrated on unwitting, innocent people by companies marketing binary options trading services.”Sharansky said the Jewish Agency has “consistently directed our professionals to reject job postings from binary options companies and to alert all immigrants and other potential employees against employment in this industry, which uses immoral methods to entice innocent victims.”And he said he would be writing to the Council of Immigrant Associations in Israel, urging them to do the same.“The damage caused to the victims, to job-seekers lured into becoming involved and tainted, and to the State of Israel is profound,” said Sharansky, a former Soviet Prisoner of Zion and ex-cabinet minister and Knesset member. “I call on the regulating authorities to do whatever they can to prevent this repugnant industry from operating within Israel’s shores.”The Times of Israel has in recent months been detailing massive fraud by Israeli binary options firms, beginning in March with an article entitled “The Wolves of Tel Aviv.” The fraudulent firms purport to be guiding their customers in making lucrative short-term investments, but are in fact using various ruses, including misrepresentation, manipulating rigged trading platforms and outright refusal to return deposits, to steal their clients’ money.All local binary options firms are now banned by the ISA from targeting Israelis, but they remain free to target people abroad. The US has banned overseas binary options firms from targeting its citizens, and numerous countries, including the US, Canada and France, are investigating Israel-based binary options fraud on behalf of their citizens who have been cheated. Belgium last week became the first European country to ban the industry, in a move that takes formal effect on Thursday, August 18.Immigrants from French- and English-speaking countries are particularly prized by the fraudulent Israel-based firms, which target victims worldwide and often encourage their salespeople to use false identities, lie about their financial skills, and misrepresent where they are calling from as they seek to persuade victims to trust them with their money.The wide-scale fraud has been snowballing over the past decade, and the ISA has thus far proved slow to react. Earlier this year, it finally banned all binary options firms from targeting Israelis, but it has said it lacks the tools and the authority to prevent Israel-based firms from fleecing victims overseas.Hauser told The Times of Israel, however, that he is now recruiting all arms of law enforcement, will push for new legislation as needed, and has full political support to grapple with the flourishing fraudulent industry, which, The Times of Israel has reported, employs thousands of Israelis working for more than 100 companies that defraud victims all over the world of billions of dollars.“I see this on a personal level,” Hauser said, “not just as a regulator, but as an Israeli citizen and as someone who is disgusted by fraud and especially by the type of people who take money from the unfortunate, from orphans and widows.”Hauser stressed that while his ISA cannot “regulate the entire world,” the scale and nature of the Israel-based fraud requires an urgent and specific solution, including changes to the law if necessary.“Any way you look at it, as a human being, as a citizen, as a regulator, as a Zionist, as a father, and as a grandfather,” Hauser said, “it looks awful to me.”Within months, Hauser therefore promised, the authorities would “step up a notch… and take a big step” to tackle the fraudsters. He said the various Israeli enforcement bodies, including regulators and the police, have a high-level consultative forum, and that they would get together in that forum to “formulate the policy, and quickly, for how to deal with this problem, because it is a problem of national significance.” The forum, he said, would “decide on operative steps within the current law, and also on additional steps to expand our jurisdiction.”Two weeks ago, MK Michael Oren, now a deputy minister responsible for public diplomacy, recommended an inquiry into Israel’s binary options industry, calling revelations of a massive global scam defrauding hundreds of thousands of international customers “very, very disturbing” and warning of its potential to damage Israel’s international standing.

Jordan rejects calls to restore access to stranded Syrians-Abdullah II expresses fears of ‘extremist elements,’ many of whom come from IS-controlled areas-By AFP August 15, 2016, 5:30 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

AMMAN, Jordan — Jordan’s King Abdullah II has rejected calls to restore access to a border area where tens of thousands of Syrians are stranded, local media reported on Monday.Jordan declared the area around the Rukban border crossing a “closed military zone” in June, after a suicide bombing claimed by the Islamic State group killed seven soldiers near a makeshift desert camp where more than 100,000 Syrians are stuck.This cut off aid access to the Syrians, who have been gathering at the border for months attempting to flee their country’s five-year civil war into Jordan.In comments published by the semi-governmental Addustour newspaper on Monday, the king cited fears of “extremist elements” among those stranded, many of whom come from areas controlled by IS.“Despite all difficulties, Jordan is doing its utmost to help refugees,” he said, “but that will under no circumstances be at the expense of the livelihood of Jordanians and their security.”Aid agencies have pleaded with the government to restore access to the camp and earlier this month Jordan allowed a delivery of desperately needed food and hygiene supplies after an appeal by the United Nations.But Abdullah said national security was Jordan’s top priority.“We will not allow anyone to put pressure on us,” he said.Abdullah said Jordan was willing to help transfer the Syrians to “any country willing to host them.”Jordan says it is already hosting nearly 1.4 million refugees, of whom 630,000 are registered with the United Nations.Abdullah said donations from the international community only covered 35 percent of the cost of hosting the refugees, leaving Jordan to make up the shortfall.That took up more than a quarter of Jordan’s budget, he said.“Jordan is doing its utmost to help refugees,” he said. “However, we have reached our limits… This is an international crisis and an international responsibility and the world has to do its part.”
