Foodbenders [restaurant] has been attacked in the name of Jews. Let’s not be surprised that she blames – Jews! This as an educational moment. In defending Foodbenders, we speak for the vast majority of Jews. We demonstrate that her attackers represented violent and extremist Palestine haters

Why the official silence about Toronto’s most powerful extreme right group (Jewish Defence League)? Is it because we live in a political culture where Palestinians lives don’t matter? The pro-Israel community is engaged in a remarkable effort to bankrupt a small progressive Toronto restaurant. In their attack on Foodbenders, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs and B’nai B’rith have once again allied with the violent, far-right, Jewish Defence League (JDL)JDL thugs held a rally in front of Foodbenders, a sandwich shop that has “I Love Gaza” painted on its window. The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, B’nai B’rith, Ontario Premier Doug Ford and a slew of other politicians have all condemned Foodbenders. Simultaneously, they have ignored the JDL’s racism, further emboldening Toronto’s most powerful far right organization.
