Hundreds of people participated in a protest in Mississauga, Ontario on Saturday against Israel and Israeli plans to apply sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria. During the protest anti-Semitic chants were made, including calls Jews “dogs”.
A video of the event, which can be viewed here, shows the protesters chanting various anti-Israel slogans. They demonstrate that their hatred towards Israel is driven both by anti-Semitism and extreme religious views.
The demonstration was initiated by pro-Palestinian students in the Toronto area. Protesters waved Palestinian and red Socialist Action flags, no Canadian flags were present.
During the demonstration, protesters chanted “Palestine is our country and the Jews are our dogs.”
The demonstration also featured calls for violence and the destruction of the State of Israel, including “Palestine will be free from the river to the sea,” “we will sacrifice our soul and blood for Palestine,” and “martyrs by the millions march to Jerusalem.”
The Toronto office of the Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies issued a condemnation of the anti-Semitic language used at the rally.
Here is a list of some of the chants the protesters chanted:
