Students urge Ryerson administration to fire a teaching assistant over anti-Jewish statements

Dozens of flyers calling on Ryerson University to fire teaching assistant Ayman Elkasrawy were plastered around campus on Friday (February 24, 2017) before they were taken down by campus security.

In 2016, Elkasrawy, who also serves as an imam at Masjid Toronto mosque which is affiliated with the Muslim Association of Canada, led a Ramadan service at the mosque during which he prayed to Allah to give Muslims victory over the infidels, to slay the enemies of Islam “one by one and spare not one of them”, and to “purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews”.
