According to reports from the media monitoring site, HonestReporting.com, Gendron, who is also the Mayor of the Quebec town of Huntingdon, used the December 27, 2011 show to urge continued support for boycott campaigns against Israel goods and services, because, “Unfortunately, Israel has not yet collapsed,” and that it did not “deserve to exist.”
Earlier, on a November 2nd show, Gendron claimed that Israel was an “apartheid state” that indiscriminately murders Palestinians while bulldozing their properties. Despite protests from Honest Reporting and community activists, the network has not taken action.
“Gendron has a history of denigrating the Jewish state,” charged Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading international Jewish Human Rights NGO. “During the 2006 Hezbollah War, he charged that Israelis are modern-day Nazis (“Les Israéliens, ce sont les nazis des temps modernes”).”
In a December 30, 2011 letter to Maxima Remillard, CEO of V-Television, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Wiesenthal Center, wrote that Gendron’s views are “shared by the likes of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran’s ruling Mullatocracy and its president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called for annihilation of the only true democracy in the Middle East…” Cooper said that “it is dangerously naïve and irresponsible not to believe, that such escalating rhetoric—left unchallenged by V-Television—could impact intergroup relations in Quebec.”
Rabbi Cooper told Remillard that while Gendron has every right to share his views, V-Television is “under no obligation to continue to provide a respectable platform for broadcast into the homes of the people of Quebec.”
“It’s time for your station to pull the plug on Mr. Gendron,” Cooper concluded.
As of the middle of this week, Remillard has yet to respond.
