Many of Canada’s Jewish leaders have vigorously advocated for Muslim immigration, especially from Syria. This is the result.
Canada (along with the United States) has been the safest country for Jews outside of Israel. However, Canadian Jews may not be able to make this claim in the coming years, as PM Trudeau’s insane immigration policies (from Muslim countries) intensify.
Toronto Jewish Day School Vandalized with Palestinian Terror Slogans
By Daniel Koren, B’nai Brith Canada
TORONTO – A Jewish day school in Toronto was vandalized with pro-Palestinian and pro-Hamas slogans over the long weekend, B’nai Brith Canada learned after receiving a call to its Anti-Hate Hotline.
On Tuesday, staff arrived at the Leo Baeck Day School, South Campus to find that various signs were defaced with statements reading, “Free Palestine,” “Long Live Palestine,” and “Long Life [sic] to the Hamas.”
Hamas is a designated terrorist organization under Canadian law.
The vandalism was discovered just days after two Israeli civilians were gunned down in a terror attack at a West Bank factory. The murders were celebrated by Hamas, with representatives handing out candy shortly after the attack.
Hamas also lauded the recent murder of Ari Fuld, an American-Israeli citizen and activist.

“These despicable acts of vandalism supporting Palestinian terrorism targeted a Jewish school where Canadian children learn about Torah, the value of charity and community, and other important values and ethics,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada.
“This affront is a direct example of how anti-Zionism and antisemitism are often one and the same, and how support for BDS [boycott, divestment and sanctions] and other anti-Israel movements can directly lead to instances of cold, calculated anti-Jewish hatred,” he said. “Let this be a wakeup call for anyone who claims otherwise.”
A spokesperson with the Toronto Police Service confirmed to B’nai Brith that it is launching a full investigation.
Leo Baeck is not the first Toronto school in recent memory to be defaced with antisemitic epithets or symbols. In fact, according to B’nai Brith’s 2017 Annual Audit of Antisemitic Incidents, antisemitic vandalism in 2017 more than doubled compared to the previous year, with both public and private schools across the country being targeted.
