Toronto school board pulls permit for madrassah after anti-Semitic postings on website
by Kristin Rushowy
East End Madrassah cannot use a Scarborough school for weekend classes until police have wrapped up their investigation into anti-Jewish teachings, the Toronto public board has decided.
"We've had a long relationship with this organization and there have been no problems to date, but of course when the situation came to our attention, it was something that we needed to investigate," said board spokesperson Shari Schwartz-Maltz.
When the online materials were discovered last week — which called ancient Jews "treacherous" and "crafty" — the madrassah immediately pulled them and issued an apology.
