Dr. Nazih Khatatba, a board member of the Palestine House and an editor of Toronto-based Meshwar newspaper, posted on his Facebook page an implicit threatening message aimed at the Jewish Defence League (JDL Canada) and pro Israel supporters. After mentioning JDL’s planned (memorial) vigil on Sunday (November 23) in front of the Palestine House in Mississauga, Khatatba wrote the following (translated from Arabic): “You are welcome in the Palestine House if you didn’t learn the lesson from [your] last visit.”
The words “last visit” refer to the demonstration and vigil for the three slain Israeli Yeshiva (Jewish religious school) students, that was organized (July 3, 2014) in front of the Palestine House by the Jewish Defence League. Supporters of the Palestine House using wooden sticks attacked the Jewish and non Jewish pro Israel protesters, injuring few, including one who was taken to hospital. Following Police investigation, charges were laid against two of the pro Palestinian attackers.
