CSI Chabad

A couple of days ago, I wrote about Pamela Geller’s getting bounced from a Toronto-area synagogue after Inspector Ricky Veerappan of the York Regional Police “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau” went and leaned on the rabbi.

It seems Rabbi Kaplan and Speech Commissar Veerappan have tangled before. The rabbi was previously investigated by the Diversity Enforcers for a “very homophobic” sermon. When a Muslim diversity cop investigates you for “Islamophobia,” it’s unlikely to end well. But, when a Muslim diversity cop investigates you for “homophobia”, your odds are somewhat improved:

The police conclusion suggests that homophobia is okay so long as it’s framed within the context of religious scripture.

So all you imams calling for the execution of all homosexuals, have at it.

On the other hand, it took Rabbi Kaplan some time to be “cleared” by the York Regional Police Diversity Bureau:

YRP started looking into the matter in August. Over five months, police interviewed about 25 people, including religious leaders, gay and lesbian community members, the provincial Crown’s office, theologians and other “subject-matter experts,” Apple says.

Twenty-first century Canada — a land where cops take five months and interview 25 people over something a rabbi says in a synagogue.

BONUS: The York Regional Police Diversity Bureau has no problem with its in-house imam, Abdul Hai Patel, attending conferences of the terror-linked World Muslim League, which among other things provided a handy chatroom for Tamerlan Tsarnaev to meet like-minded types.
