Pamphlets accusing “Jewish terrorists trained by Israeli Zionists” of orchestrating last month’s deadly shooting at a Montreal mosque were distributed across Canada’s Western University this week, the campus newspaper The Gazette reported.

The booklets called for “all Zionists in Canada to be tried as terrorists and all members to be put in jail,” after the Jan. 29 attack on the Islamic Cultural Center of Quebec City — carried out by 27-year-old Alexandre Bissonnette — which left six people dead and 19 others wounded. They were signed by a group calling itself the “Canadian National Independence Party,” an Internet search for which yielded no results.

The University Students’ Council (USC) condemned the “incredibly prejudiced” pamphlet, saying it “directly attacks our Jewish community on campus” and “strongly promotes violence.”

“Free speech is incredibly important, especially at a learning institution…However, hate speech is not free speech as it is violent, targeting, marginalizing and unacceptable. Attacks like this on members, groups or communities on our campus are disgusting and inexcusable,” USC stated.

The university’s Hillel thanked the student government for “speaking out.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has referred to the Quebec shooting as a “terror attack,” and Bissonnette has been charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder.

    So by the reasoning on this pamphlet the next time a muslim performs a terrorist attack we should throw them all in prison…. This kind of ridiculous thinking is very dangerous. Not to mention it makes me question the intelligence of the person that wrote it. It is amusing that muslims say not to associate them with muslim terrorists because they don’t share their views but when it comes to the Jews they are all the same and all guilty just for being jewish. That is a sick and very twisted way of thinking. Maybe this kid was angry because an Imam at this mosque was calling for death to all unbelievers. Not to mention he suffered from depression. To try and say it was a huge conspiracy is a little far fetched. Get some evidence and facts. Until then it is all your imagination. Some Of us choose to live in reality.

    Oh I see, so if Zionists (and why don’t you call them Jewish people) supported Trump, then how do you explain all of the Anti-Semitic behaiviour of the Rightist White Supremists?

    Blaming Jews for the act of a confused Christian man, is the m.o. of the Islamist propaganda machine!
