The JCC very strongly condemns the violent acts of hate at York University

The Jewish Community Council very strongly condemns the violent acts of hate towards those who attended an event at York University where a group of anti-Semites tried to disrupt a school-sanctioned panel discussion with Reservists on Duty, an organization of former members of the Israeli Defence Force (IDF.)

 

In a democratic country which boasts free speech and peace, these acts are offensive and repugnant, having no place in Canada.

 

It is incumbent upon York University, the Ontario provincial government and the Federal government to employ swift justice upon anyone who planned and took part in these attacks, ensuring the safety of Jews wherever they choose to meet.
