B’nai B’rith Canada: Message on Protest Flyer is Blood Libel

avatar by Max Elstein Keisler

B'nai B'rith said the message on the flyer amounted to a blood libel.

A protest held outside the Pakistani Consulate in Toronto Monday was advertised with fliers containing antisemitic propaganda.

B’nai B’rith Canada alerted police in Vaughan, Ontario to the protest, which was promoted with a graphic handout which blames a “Zionist Plot” for the “massacre of Shia Muslims” in Pakistan. “Long Live Shia-Sunni Unity – Down With Zionist Plots” reads a section of the flyer, in front of a simulated blood stain.

Frank Dimant, CEO of B’nai B’rith Canada, condemned the offensive material, saying, “Unfortunately, the Jewish community is all too used to the dissemination of propaganda that seeks to whip up anti-Israel and anti-Jewish sentiment. But the lurid nature of the flyer for tonight’s event (see below) amounts to a blood libel that crosses all boundaries.

“This goes well beyond the usual allegations against Jews and Israel for all the ills of world. It is nothing more than an Iranian-inspired attempt to divert attention from the true perpetrators of recent atrocities in Pakistan. Such incitement to hatred has no place on the streets of Canada.”
