Dear Daniel Koren
You write, concerning your efforts to defame me and prevent me from speaking in Canada:
We have on several occasions attempted to engage Mr. Barrett in conversation on how his views are terribly misinformed, misguided and incorrect, but he is not interested in such a dialogue.
I just left you a telephone message at 416 633 6224 x 172 pointing out that I have never been contacted by anyone “reaching out” from B’nai B’rith. On the contrary, I was the one who repeatedly “reached out” to B’nai B’rith during August of 2015, leaving many telephone messages asking for a dialogue on your efforts to impede my Canadian speaking tour. None of my calls was ever returned.
Please let me know the times, dates, and phone numbers/email addresses used for your alleged “reaching out.” If there is a problem with communications reaching me, I need to locate and fix it.
In my recent phone message I also re-stated my desire to have a reasoned dialogue with someone from B’nai B’rith, and invited you or someone from your organization to appear on my radio show.
So please do “reach out” and accept my invitation! Next Monday or Tuesday would be ideal for a pre-recorded radio conversation. Any time between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern could work.
I thank you in advance for your willingness to engage in reasoned dialogue, and I look forward to hearing from you.

B’nai B’rith email to one of my readers/listeners:
Thanks so much for your email. Allow me to assure you that B’nai Brith does not seek to engage in censorship in any kind. On the contrary, our campaign is a bid to protect religious and identity groups in Canada against the willful promotion of hatred, which is illegal in Canada. We have on several occasions attempted to engage Mr. Barrett in conversation on how his views are terribly misinformed, misguided and incorrect, but he is not interested in such a dialogue. As such, our only recourse was to launch a campaign to prevent him from entering Canada to attend an anti-Israel rally where he would most likely promote hatred against members of the Jewish community, both in Canada and abroad.
Thanks again for taking the time.
