Rabbi David Mivasair is a member of Independent Jewish Voices Canada and a long-time active member of the New Democratic Party (NDP). Resident of Hamilton, ON Mivasair worked at Vancouver’s Ahavat Olam progressive synagogue and First United Church homeless shelter.
On November 15, 2023, David Mivasair was interviewed to Let the Quran Speak YouTube Channel.
Here is an excerpt from the interview:
I’m part of an organization called Independent Jewish Voices, which is really focused on justice and equality for Palestinians, and we as Jews being part of that struggle… All the time you hear claims about Israeli women being raped by members of Hamas. There’s never one example, like I can say very confidently that didn’t happen. Even, you know, there have been four hostages released, a mother and daughter maybe two weeks ago, two elderly women about a week ago. All four of them talk very comfortably and freely about how well-treated they were, they were fed, nobody harassed them… their government is actively contradicting what they say about their own personal experience.
