Really, I have got to get out more.

So I am reading the Israeli Arutz Sheva online and spy a by-line reading ‘Toronto Zionist Council’ and click in.
(IsraelNN.com) In a harshly worded letter, the Toronto Zionist Council (TZC) said it was "appalled" by the forcible and violent eviction of the residents and supporters of Peace House in Hevron last week. The organization called for the removal of Defense Minister Ehud Barak from power, and an end to what it termed the "persecution and abuse" of Jews in Hevron. The TZC's presiding officers warned they would call for an end to financial support for the Israeli government, and direct support for the Hevron community and its supporters, if the leadership continues in its current Hevron policies.

All sentiments I could have written, and how is it that I don’t know about this group in my backyard nor do I have a seat on this council? Was I not accused of single-handedly orchestrating the rise of post-ww2 anti-Semitism? Then I do a bit of google-ing and realize there is no website or email which explains everything in my mind – well, at least to me.

I was wondering who they are too, and I came across this:
