Two weeks ago JDL confronted calls for the murder of Jews at the University of Toronto:
Every campus in Canada has anti Israel student groups that spread fear and support for terror groups, such as Hamas. Just last week, the University of Toronto hosted an event that openly supported the current violence against Jews in Israel.
York University has a collaboration agreement with Al Quds University which glorifies terrorists that murder Jews in Israel. The Jewish Defence League will start a campaign against York University.
Join the JDL campaign to have York University cut its ties with Al Quds University.
York University has allowed calls to murder Jews. There is a large mural displayed in the main Student Building at York University that calls for violence.
There is an active group on campus called the “Students Against Israeli Apartheid” that fully supports “the popular resistance” which according to Arab leaders in Israel means the “knife intifada” — in plain terms; stabbing Jews; driving vehicles into Jews; shooting Jews.
According to the Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, between September 13, 2015 – January 2, 2016, 27 Israelis have been killed and 279 wounded — 25 of them seriously.
This new wave of Palestinian terrorism included 100 stabbings, 37 shootings and 22 car rammings in addition to firing rockets (from Gaza), detonating explosive charges,
and many hundreds incidents of stone throwing and firebombings. Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs added, “the current wave of terrorist attacks is part of the PA’s strategy of “popular resistance” (i.e., popular terrorism) adopted by the PA and Fatah at the Sixth Fatah conference in August 2009.”
On February the 4th, Students Against Israeli Apartheid will have another anti Israel event — and this time it will be confronted by JDL.
JDL will hold a protest at York University that same day, February 4, to start our campaign to stop incitement to murder Jews:
