Overreaching bit of idiocy of the day

Via Huff Post, I see the Toronto Vaad is still fighting the battles of the 19th century. In response to a book review written by one of their own, the Vaad felt obligated to declare:
"Halacha [Jewish law] rules, unequivocally, that the denial of the godly origin of 'even a single word' in the Torah ... contravenes this principle [of 'Torah Mi Sinai'] and constitutes 'kefiroh baTorah' [heresy]."
Do the fools realize how many Rishonim they just tossed out? What gives a 21st century group of Canadian rabbis the temerity to declare that Ibn Ezra, Radak, Ramah, R' Yom Tov Lipman, R' Yom Tov Elum are all guilty of kfirah?
