Two Jewish students assaulted at York University....

It's hard being pro-Israel at any University...
Two Jewish students at York University were assaulted on Monday during a pro-Israel program.

Tyler Golden, Co-President, Hasbara Fellowships at York University, who was on the scene when the incident occurred, described the happenings in a conversation with Shalom Life: “Hasbara was tabling for Gilad Shalit. We run a campaign called Free Palestinians from Hamas. It was a very peaceful day and we had permission from the university to table. At around 4 o’clock, several anti-Israel known faces on campus came to start questioning us and debate with us.”

Golden said that the debate that had sprung up between the Hasbara people and the anti-Israel individuals quickly escalated into an angry mob of around 50 students, who surrounded his group and chanted anti-Israel and anti-Semitic slurs. “Security has asked us, when we come across these types of things, to call them which we did, as well as videotape it so they can see the faces and hear the voices of the people that do it. A few students on the other side were upset that there were cameras in their faces, so they started yelling and screaming. As they were trying to push cameras out of the way, they actually hit two students.”

Time for the university to send a clear message to those who are violating the charter of rights.

Trespass and explusion for starters.

Will the media pick this story up?

I doubt it is easy being a Jew, Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist or Christian anywhere because the religious, in general, get a hard time once their depth of faith is known. Other religions interact with them and the atheists nag them. They are seen as slightly odd and with the case of Jews, they have the whole Jews=Israel thing from the knuckle scrapers to contend with and Israel, if you have not noticed, is not popular.

Damn Jews! If only they keep their opinions and religion under wraps.

These assaults should be condemned, and the thugs who did it should be brought to justice. Make sure a deterrent is sent. Also condemn all who try to 'understand' such racist acts.

York University demands university of thought, they are very narrow-minded, especially the Professors. Hating Jews and Israel is more than acceptable at York University, it's practically required - at least publicly within the narrow confines of the campus.

Maybe it has slipped past you Elizabeth of England but Israel isn't popular.
In the PR war, they are losing heavilly.
Doesn't make attacking Jews right but you get morons who make a dimwitted correlation between being Jewish and Israel.
The same morons who see a Muslim and beat them for what Al Queada is doing.

You missed out the morons who confuse Judaists with ethnic Jews and dismiss racist attacks as anti religious debate.

Islamists and their allies on the hard left want to purge all views that see Israel in a different light.
Its racist and Orwellian.

Sorry guys but this was a Hasbara Hoax. Security video has been released debunking Hasbara's fanciful tale.
