An “Al Quds Day” protest in Toronto on Saturday provided “stark evidence that Canadian children are being steeped in anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hatred from infancy,” B’nai Brith Canada said, in a statement Tuesday.

“Not only were children of all ages used as props for the cameras, but this year they were also given the microphone to spread lies and whip up hatred against the Jewish people,” the Jewish human rights agency said.

“Sadly, we have grown accustomed to hearing the hateful rhetoric spewed by adults at these pro-Iranian-regime, anti-Israel events, but this year’s Al Quds Day protest sank to a new low with the use of children to spread lies and hatred. Canadian children are being indoctrinated and groomed as future leaders by people who openly support the Iranian regime, the late Ayatollah Khomeini and the banned terrorist group Hezbollah,” said Frank Dimant, CEO, B’nai Brith Canada.

US Jewish Groups Praise Tillerson’s Renewal of State Department Antisemitism Envoy

“B’nai Brith Canada is in ongoing discussions with security experts concerning the short- and long-term danger this poses to Canadians and Israelis and has provided high-quality video of the event to the Toronto Police Service,” he continued.

Across the globe, “Al Quds Day,” established in Iran in 1979, is commemorated on the final Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, to express solidarity with Palestinian Arabs, oppose Zionism and Israel’s presence in Jerusalem, known as al Quds, in Arabic. This year, many of the Al Quds protests were more violent, racist and anti-Semitic than in previous years, prompting human rights and Jewish groups to protest the escalation.

    Where were the Jewish community to protest this Islamo-fascist hatefest carried out by paid supporters of the Iranian dictatorship (soon to be nuclear power)? Why do the 150,000+ Jews in the Toronto area not lend support to the small group who were there to stand up for Israel, stand up for Canada and stand up for freedom? Maybe years of Farbarization and CIJA-led attempts at sha-shtil have left them impotent, unconcerned, disconnected and siding with their own would-be killers?? Where is the Toronto Board of Rabbis to stand up to the Neturei Karta idiot clown props? Were the TBR all too busy condemning Pamela Geller and trying to put distance between themselves and Israel? Where was Justin Trudeau, supporter of jihad, and Kathleen Wynne? Where are their statements? Why are we allowing terrorists into this country to undermine our freedom and security? There are many people worldwide worthy of the privilege to live in Canada and so why does our government immigration office choose the most vile hatemongers from among countries that despise Canada? It is time to stand up to these barbarians and those who think that they are safe from terrorism, just visit any campus during IAW or the Al Quds hatefest and the truth will be revealed.

    Who were the bright lights at City of Toronto who issued the demonstration permit after the province of Ontario said Queen’s Park was not to be used as a forum for the Khomeinists who have unfortunately been allowed into the country?

      They did not have any permit, in fact, the police did not issue one because Caribana was taking place the same day and the police said that the two events on the same day would be a security problem for them. So the Islamo-fascists held their Jew-hate event against the law with the leftist useful idiots at their side and children dressed up as suicide bombers proudly leading the event on the podium with speeches and in the streets side-by-side with their abusive jihadist parents, some of whom held the flag of terror group Hezbollah.
