LA Jewish Federation Cancels Event Citing Muslim Threats
by Zachary Lichaa
At the last minute, the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles canceled a Sunday morning event where Pamela Geller was scheduled to speak on the issues of war in the Middle East and the historical hatred of Jews in the Muslim world.
Citing security concerns that the building might be stormed by Muslim activists, the Federation informed the Zionist Organization of America – which was hosting the event – that the speech would be called off.
"We said, 'we will pay for additional security so there will be no problems,'" Morton Klein, President of the ZOA, told The Algemeiner. "They rejected that, saying 'we're not going to let Pam Geller or any of your people in the building.'"
