Police investigating hate speech allegations at anti-Israel rally – No Permit Granted For Khomeinist Hate-Fest By Any Authority

TORONTO – Toronto Police officers are investigating allegations of hate speech after a speaker at a controversial anti-Israel rally said Jews must vacate that country or be shot dead.

The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), the group claiming to have complained to police, identified the speaker as Elias Hazineh.

Dennis Clark, the Ontario legislature’s sergeant-at-arms, said Al-Quds organizers were not given a permit to hold the rally at Queens Park this year, but that there wasn’t anything stopping them from doing it anyway. Clark said they were denied the permit because the Caribbean Carnival was happening at the same time, and that the decision was made in the name of public safety.
