Over the weekend, there was a pro-terror rally in front of Calgary city hall. Can you even imagine? The day after Canada Day in downtown Calgary, there was a rally to celebrate Al Quds Day.
Al Quds Day is firmly rooted in hate. It was declared by the Ayatollah Rohullah Khomeini in 1979, after the Islamic Revolution in Iran, to fall on the last Friday of Ramadan. It's a day to renew the Iranian struggle against Zionism and the state of Israel. When they say renew the “struggle”, what they really mean “reaffirm the radical Islamic commitment to wipe out the state of Israel and to eliminate the Jewish people from the face of the earth”. Genocide is a tougher sell when you say it that way, I guess.
But this hate on the streets of Calgary isn't going unopposed. The Jewish Defence League organized a counter protest, a celebration of freedom and life, to oppose the sour blood libel of the pro-terror crowd.
