                 Unbelievable that this could be sanctioned in Ontario or anywhere in Canada.   Time for a responsible provincial government with a little courage and integrity.

    I am outraged that this disgusting display of hatred and intolerance could be held on the grounds of the provincial government. Calling it “Al-Quds” day is revolting – how many naive Canadians even know that “Al-Quds” is arabic for “Jerusalem”? I have no desire to hear anything that rascist, anti-semitic hate-mongers have to say about Israel or its eternal, undivided capital city. My message to the seargeant-at-arms is “Shut this spectacle down before it even begins!” If I lived closer to Toronto, believe me, I would be enthusiastically waving the Israeli flag in protest. And, no, I am not Jewish, I’m a Christian who strongly supports Israel. Shalom!

    I am in shock! As an Ontarian and proud Canadian this is totally unforgivable. How dare this Dennis Clark, Queen’s Park’s Sergeant-at-arms use his position to accept this circus display on Canadian grounds from a group that is pro-Iran, pro-Sharia Law, anti-Israel and most depraved of all, wants the destruction of all of Israel and its citizens. Further, it is not Al-Quds it is JERUSALEM and always was.
    Just because we are a democracy does not mean that we accept hate speach and giving permission to that group in order to give support to Khamenei’s ideology is unbelieve. Gathering on the Ontario Parliament’s door or anywhere in Canada is shameful. If anyone can get me an email address for this Dennis Clark please forward it on this site. In the meantime I will try and find it.
    According to Canadian Dr. Jacques Gauthier who studied International Law for 30 years, Jerusalem belongs to Israel totally, even East Jerusalem along with Gaza, Samaria, and Judea. JPost writes: “Gauthier says that the San Remo Conference was the “final hearing” of a “world court”, the council of the five leading nations and victors of World War 1. The “case” before the “court” began at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, where both the Jews and the Arabs of the Middle East submitted claims to obtain independence and control of various territories. Gauthier calls April 24-25 in San Remo the “key defining moment in history” on the issue of title to Jerusalem and says that Chaim Weizmann called the decision the “most important moment for the Jewish people since exile.” (JPost – Forget politics – Who has legal right to Jerusalem? by Yonah Bob – 14/06/2012.)
    According to Gauthier, the Arabs made claims to Ottoman territory, but not specifically to Palestine or Jerusalem. Dr. Gauthier is not the only expert citing these conferences as Israel’s legal rights to Jerusalem, Israel itself, Gaza (which Israel gave away) Judea/Samaria (West Bank). Take that into your pipe and smoke it Dennis Clark. You should loose your job over this.

    This is so totally wrong. That group should not have been able to re-apply for this year. Some conservative MP’s did object in parliament however, nothing was done by the McGuinty government. This is not a question of freedom of speech: as example I will give you the fact that Ann Coulter, a conservative what banned by elites of some canadian universities to speak when she had been invited. If they can ban a single individual from speaking at places where free thinking is promoted why couldn’t Dennis Clark deny their public gathering application. This is promoting Iran with its terrorism, sharia law, spreading lies, and promoting the destruction of Israel and its citizens. Shame on you Dennis Clark and the McGuinty government. Further, no where in Canada should such demonstrations be permitted.

    I want the people to know that Al-Quds Day takes place every year. It is an Iranian anti-zionist event which started in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomenei in 1979. Iran’s wish is to export the event to every muslim country. Now, the present Ayatollah Khamenei said Wednesday in Iran’s Mehr News Agency the he was confident “the fake Zionist (regime) will disappear from the landscape of geography.” He further said: “The muslim world must support the “oppressed people of Palestine” in a show of resistance against “the Zionist usurpers.”
    In addition, Brig. Gen. Gholamreza Jalali, the head of Iran’s Passive (Civil) Defense Organization and an ex-commander of the Revolutionary Guards said this week according to a report by Iran’s ISNA News Agency: “Al-Quds Day is a reflection of the fact that no other way exists apart from resolve and strength to completely eliminate the aggressive nature and to destroy Israel”.
    Is this what we want in Canada? PM McGuinty when interviewd lately in regards to this group’s gathering put the responsibility on Dennis Clark’s shoulders. I want both of them to know that this is not satisfactory to me or most Canadians (I hope).
    I believe it is time to write to our Prime Minister and voice our opinions. Thank you.
