Toronto Church to Host Event Honoring Terrorist
A Toronto church is hosting an event by a Palestinian youth group that honors brutal terrorists.
Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church is “provid[ing] a space” for the Ghassan Kanafani Resistance Arts Scholarship Launch being held by the Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM), reported The Jerusalem Post.
Kanafani was the spokesman for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) at the time the terrorist group claimed responsibility for the massacre of Lod (now Ben Gurion) Airport in Israel in which 26 civilians were killed, including one Canadian and 17 Christians visiting from Puerto Rico. Another 80 were injured in the attack.
The events will “showcase the winners of the Ghassan Kanafani Resistance Arts Scholarship,” writes the PYM on its Facebook page.
A year ago, PYM praised Mohammad Tareq, a 17-year old Palestinian terrorist responsible for stabbing three Israelis in July 1918. Below is a copy of their Facebook post honoring Tareq after his “martyrdom”.
There is something you can do though. There is a petition calling for the church to cancel the event. Go and sign it. People have to speak up. Let Trinity-St. Paul's United Church know that people are aware that they're offering a "safe space" for terrorists who want to deny Jews any safe spaces anywhere in the world.
