Anti-Semitic violence erupts at Toronto university
Post Millennial ^ | Nov. 21, 2019 | Wyatt Claypool

Wednesday night at York University in Toronto, members of the group Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA) assaulted Jewish students attempting to attend a pro-Israel event at the university.

A group of Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) reservists came to York to speak to students and the public about their experiences in the army. This simple act caused the anti-Israel group on campus to conduct a “no killers on campus” campaign in which they not only disrupted the event but attempted to smear the reputation of multiple IDF soldiers by photoshopping them into violent situations.

Many protestors yelling in the hallways to “Free, Free Palestine” physically attacked ethnically Jewish people despite stating to be only against the Israeli government.

There were also loud chants of “Viva, Viva Intifada,” which is regularly referred to as calls for uprising and violence, notably seen on two occasions Israel in the multiple terror attacks committed by Palestinians against Israelis.

Among the chanting protestors was Holocaust denier Nazih Khatatba, who has in the past glorified the 2014 massacre at the Jerusalem synagogue and considers Judaism a “terrorist religion.” It is not known whether or not Mr. Khatatba was specifically invited or not at this time.

Despite the breakout of violence, police and campus security were on scene to quickly end the assault and send away the violent protests to avoid any serious injury.

Some members and allies of SAIA, including a former NDP candidate in the recent federal election, telegraphed their aggressive actions against the IDF event on Twitter positioning themselves against even the platforming for a reservist for an intellectual discussion.

The SAIA has, in the past, been involved in many controversial events, including a recent talk where they implied that Israelis are involved in actions equivalent to the Holocaust. Connecting the Jewish state specifically to a genocide mainly against the Jewish people.

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)’s definition of anti-Semitism categorizes “drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis” as meeting the threshold of being considered anti-Semitic.

Governments inviting invaders in creating chaos in their own countries to keep the populace busy while they rob, pillage and enrich themselves

The worst thing they are stealing is sovereignty. Once they empty the till they will collapse what is left for a Globalist utopia of slaves and masters.

Not all, but some college kids are the biggest idiots on the planet.

Gee, was there some sort of common denominator amongst the protesters? Like, were they wearing MAGA caps or waving the Confederate flag or wearing “Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself” t- shirts? Something? Anything?

how queer, Saudi Arabia (and Mecca specifically) engage in real apartheid.

I was just going to say that there is NO apartheid in Israel.

Send away? Those committing violence should be arrested.

We have an antisemitic Socialist Prime Minister, so that doesn’t help.

But Jews here will still vote 70/30 in favor of folks that would love to see them DEAD.

Oh, and CATHOLICS, my folks, will vote BARELY majority for people who pretty much HATE them too.

ANY Jew or Christian voting for the left is voting for suicide.

Not tomorrow or next year but soon.

Not even in the *slightest* bit surprised that this would happen at York U. UofT and York U were *GROUND ZERO* for IAW/BDS, and it’s been a well-known fact for at least a decade that the Muslim Brotherhood (through their youth-wing, the Muslim Students’ Association (MSA)) pretty much *RUNS* York U. York is NOT a safe school for a Jewish student to attend, and hasn’t been for a long time now.

Interesting. The signs used to read “Moslems Only” and “For Non Moslems”. Wonder when and why they changed the spelling.

The left denies it but there are more leftist Jew haters than those on the right.

No question. And by a very wide margin.

Nothing changes there. Geddy Lee talks candidly about being beaten up because of his religion, over 50 years ago.

I thought Geddy was an atheist, although, yes I know his parents were Holocaust survivors.
