This anti-Israel mob was protesting a pro-Israel event, that featured reservists from the Israel Defense Forces. So naturally all hell broke lose. There was a time when York University was home to a huge and thriving Jewish student body. The university would practically shut down during the Jewish holidays.
However, those days are long gone. Today, the pro-jihad Left has made York University dangerous for Jews. In fact, York University is considered by many to be the most dangerous university for Jews in Canada. Some refer to it as “Jihad U” due to it’s hostile environment to pro-Israel Jewish students. Action must be taken, but probably wont.
Watch: Anti-Israel protesters shout ‘Viva Intifada’ at York University in Toronto
Anti-Israel protesters tried to disrupt an event featuring IDF reservists at York University in Toronto.
By Arutz Sheva, November 20th, 2019:
Protesters affiliated with the Students Against Israeli Apartheid at York University (SAIA York) in Toronto on Wednesday evening demonstrated against Herut Canada’s event at the campus featuring former IDF soldiers.
The protesters chanted “Viva, Viva Intifada” and “Free, Free Palestine.”
The IDF reservists spoke to students about Israel and their experiences in the army. The reservists’ visit to the university sparked a “no killers on campus” campaign organized by anti-Israel student groups.
Flyers protesting the event now cover the walls of the campus, portraying a photoshopped image of an IDF soldier who appears to be strangling a child. Anti-Israel groups have vowed to disrupt the event and are circulating a number of chants students can use to derail the event, such as “From Toronto to Gaza, Globalize the Intifada!”
Students Against Israeli Apartheid at York University organized an event on Facebook urging people to show up on Wednesday evening and tell the university’s administration that “we will not tolerate war criminals on our campus.”
According to a statement from B’nai Brith Canada, officers of the Toronto Police Service and private security personnel were on hand to enable attendees to enter the event, despite the best efforts of protesters outside to block them.
Among the protesters present was Holocaust-denying newspaper editor Nazih Khatatba, who glorified a 2014 massacre at a Jerusalem synagogue and has described Judaism as a “terrorist religion.”
At one point, police were forced to intervene to prevent physical violence and injury.
“The Toronto Police Service and York University should be commended for ensuring that this event could be safely held,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada. “Enraged mobs cannot be allowed to prevent lawful and peaceful gatherings from taking place on campus.
