BDS and Antifa Bigots Shout “Back to the Ovens” at Toronto’s York U
Anti-Semitic violence and hate at a Canadian university.
“Go back to the ovens, go back to Europe!”
That was what Jewish students, pro-Israel activists, and Jewish community members heard in Vari Hall.
It was a Wednesday evening at York University. Students and community members had come out to a modernistic building on York U’s Keele Campus in Toronto to hear the stories of former Israeli soldiers. The volunteers with Reservists on Duty, two women and five men, six Jews and one Arab Christian, were there to conduct a dialogue and answer questions about their experiences in Israel’s battle against terrorism.
York U’s Vari Hall had been the scene of some ugly confrontations in the past, but no one had expected 500 BDS and Antifa bigots to show up screaming hatred and attacking Jewish students on campus.
While angry mobs chanted “From Toronto to Gaza, Globalize the Intifada!” and “Intifada, Intifada, go back to the ovens” in the hall outside, inside the room anti-Israel thugs tried to shout down the speakers. Students were pushed and shoved by BDS bigots waving PLO flags and chanting terrorist slogans determined to shut down the event and prevent the Israeli veterans from being heard.
