Author, Salomon BenzimraSalomon Benzimra has led a fascinating life. He was born in 1943 in the International Zone of Tangiers (now Morocco) which was a refuge for many cultures. His early education was in French schools, but his family was Spanish-speaking. In fact, his distant ancestors lived in Spain during the 1400’s and were among the many who crossed the Straits of Gilbralter to escape the Inquisition. In addition to French, Spanish and English, Salomon also reads Hebrew, and reads and speaks a bit of Arabic.

He studied chemical engineering in France and worked in Morocco and Montreal before moving to Toronto in 1976.  He became involved in Israeli and world affairs after 9/11 and began writing for publication.

With Goldi Steiner he founded Canadians for Israel’s Legal Rights (CILR), comprising a group of dedicated volunteers based in Toronto.

CILR has recently published, in Kindle format, The Jewish People’s Rights to the Land of Israel by Salomon Benzimra. This e-book is available on Amazon, and details the momentous decisions made at the 1920 San Remo Conference after the Ottoman Empire lost all its territories in the Middle East; decisions made in San Remo are crucial to understanding the present situation in the Middle East. Although suitable for any mature reader, the book was written specifically to prepare Jewish high school students to defend themselves against the defamation, lies and distortions about Israel that many face in university. The book is fact-based and educational, not political, and it debunks the current perception of Jewish Israelis as occupiers and settlers.

On March 5, 2013 he presented the keynote address by the same title for the Day 1 afternoon session at the 2013 Israel Truth Week Conference in Hamilton, Ontario. One day later, on Day 2, ISA President Eitan Gilboord presented, ‘Combatting Anti-Semitism At Ryerson University.’
