Toronto: Church provides space for event honoring “Palestinian” terrorist responsible for jihad massacre

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine is ostensibly a Communist organization, but it is wholly aligned with the jihad force. Ghassan Kanafani was responsible for the murder of 17 Christians, as well as eight Israelis, but that doesn’t matter to the Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church. Being woke is ultimately a suicidal act, but at least the members of Trinity-St. Paul’s can congratulate themselves that they were never “racist” when their own time comes and their jihadi friends turn on them.

“B’nai Brith Canada slams church for assisting event honoring PFLP terrorist,” by Ilanit Chernick, Jerusalem Post, July 7, 2019:

B’nai Brith Canada has condemned a decision by Toronto’s Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church to “provide a space” for an event that honors Ghassan Kanafani, a designated Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist.

The event, which is being hosted by the Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM) on July 13, is listed as the Ghassan Kanafani Resistance Arts Scholarship Launch.

According to PYM’s Facebook invitation, the event will “be an evening of spoken word, music, and food to celebrate the artistic and cultural contributions of Palestinians in the diaspora and showcase the winners of the Ghassan Kanafani Resistance Arts Scholarship in this years anthology entitled ‘We feel a country in our bones.’”

Kanafani and the PFLP, were responsible for the Lod Airport Massacre in May, 1972, that left 26 civilians dead – including a Canadian, 17 Christian pilgrims from Puerto Rico and eight Israelis – and 80 others injured.

At the time of the terror attack, Kanafani was the spokesman for the terrorist group.

In response to the event, B’nai Brith Canada started a petition on Friday calling on the church not to host the scholarship launch.

In the letter that is set to accompany the petition, B’nai Brith Canada pointed out to the church that “the ‘Palestinian Youth Movement,’ the group holding this event in your church, has also hailed Mohammad Tareq, a Palestinian terrorist who stabbed three Israelis,” in the settlement of Adam last July.

At the time, PYM stated that, “we recognize that our youth are forced into becoming heroes because of the conditions in which they live, and that the people of Palestine will continue to resist until our land and our people are liberated from the river to the sea.” The movement also translated Tareq’s final message prior to the attack, in which he advocated violence against Jews and Zionists across Israel….

The organization added that a “Trinity-St. Paul’s spokesperson claimed that the PYM had provided a statement that it did not promote or condone violence,” and had since not responded to subsequent communications.
