Cops warn rabbi about hosting anti-Islamist speaker Pamela Geller

What a miserable, cowardly pack of so-called law enforcement officers.  The York Regional Police of Canada should have announced to those Muslims who object to Pam Geller’s speech that the speech will go on as planned and will be protected against any and all terrorist threats.  Instead these despicable yellow bellied scum have chosen to enforce Muslim demands to suppress any criticism of Islam.

Rabbi Kaplan is no better, having caved in also.

TORONTO -- York Regional Police threatened to remove a rabbi as one of the force's chaplains if he hosted a controversial anti-Islamist speaker at his Thornhill, Ont., synagogue.

Insp. Ricky Veerappan of the force's diversity, equity and inclusion bureau, confirmed he and officers from the force's hate crimes unit met with Rabbi Mendel Kaplan of the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue on Tuesday.

They expressed concern about an upcoming talk to be given by Pamela Geller, a vocal critic of radical Islam. She's protested past plans to build a mosque near Ground Zero in New York City, and has posted anti-jihad messages in that city's subway system.

Subsequent to his meeting with police, Kaplan cancelled Geller's May 13 talk, which was sponsored by the Jewish Defence League (JDL) -- a hard-line advocacy group which had rented space in Kaplan's synagogue for the event.

"I think the police are turning a blind eye to who they should be keeping an eye on," said the JDL's Meir Weinstein, referring to radical Islamists. Weinstein said another location will be chosen for Geller's appearance.
