CIJ News reports:
Palestine House, a Mississauga–based organization representing the Canadian-Palestinian community, held (August 5) a demonstration in front of the Israeli Consulate in Toronto, to protest the murder of Ali Dawabsah, a Palestinian toddler who was burnt to death in a premeditated arson most probably carried out by extremist Jewish settlers. (…)
On the other side of the street dozens of pro-Israel activists – Jews and non Jews – came to protest against Palestinian terrorism. Members of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) waived the yellow flags of JDL alongside signs illustrating in writing and pictures the terrorist nature of Hamas. Some of these signs read: “Palestinian, Arab and Hamas target and kill hundreds of Israeli children,” “Hamas values its children for war and death,” “Pick a side: Hamas or peace and freedom,” “Criminal charges against Palestine House, “160 Arab children died building tunnels for Hamas” and “This is creeping jihad. Free Canuckistan! from jihad zombies.”
Meir Weinstein, National Director of JDL Canada, told CIJnews that his organization will continue to confront Palestine House in its demonstrations against Israel.
