"Queers Against Israeli Apartheid violated policy, city says"

"City bureaucrats may withdraw funding from Pride Toronto next year if the activist group Queers Against Israeli Apartheid is allowed to march in this summer's parade.

"The city, which gave Pride $121,000 in 2009, believes its anti-discrimination policy was likely violated by QuAIA's conduct and even its very presence at last summer's parade, said general manager of economic development and culture Mike Williams...

"Ceta Ramkhalawansingh, city manager of diversity management and community engagement, said she looked to Ontario Human Rights Commission guidelines for direction regarding the parade.

"The guidelines, she said, mention racism that creates a 'poisoned environment.' She said QuAIA had created an environment at Pride 'where not everybody feels welcome.' Thus, she said, the city's message to Pride was: "You've got a problem. Deal with it.'"

The environment has been poisoned at Pride. I was harassed, intimidated and made to feel extremely unwelcome by the QuAIA group because I was "identified as a Zionist".

Sexually aggressive body language

I was shocked by the sexually menacing behaviour exhibited by some of the Palestine House men.

"Go steal something... You guys are all thieves."

Protester: "Rockets are still falling in Israel. People are dying... No funding for hate, no funding for Palestine House, no funding for jihad."

Palestine House Guy #1: "I'm see you tonight, okay?

Palestine House Guy #2 (makes obscene gestures): "I f*ck you tonight."

Palestine House Guy #1: "Palestine people f*ck you."

Palestine House Guy #2: "Bye, Gypsies. Bye, Gypsies, bye, Jews... Go steal something, go steal, you guys are all thieves."

"You guys need another Holocaust. You'd love it. I know you would love it."

Yes, he said it again.

Disrespecting our national anthem

The Palestine House supporters kept setting off their own car alarms (sometimes several at once) to drown out the sound of the protesters' chants.

They also did it deliberately while some of the protesters sang "O Canada."

This is how they show their "respect" for Canada and Canadian taxpayers.

I guess it's not gonna stop, then

Palestine House Guy: "Get the f*ck out of Palestine. This land is not yours."

Protester: "Please stop the rockets."

Palestine House Guy: "It's not gonna stop until you f*ckin' get outta here."

Throwing coins at Jews

This Palestine House supporter threw coins and yelled to the Jewish protesters: "Five cents for you."

"You monkeys!"

One Palestine House guy acts like a monkey and then shouts, "You monkeys!" at the Jewish protesters while another Palestine House guy unzips his pants.

"You f*ckers need another Holocaust"

"You guys need another Holocaust. You guys need another one. You f*ckers need another Holocaust."

"We love jihad. We love killing you... We love killing dogs."

Video taken at today's protest against government funding of Palestine House.
