Featuring Israeli guest speakers Nir Yosef, Ori Itzhaki and Aby Volcovich, the event was part of a Canadian speaking tour designed to “fight against the delegitimisation of Israel” according to a promotional poster shared on social media.

In response, a judge in Montreal banned pro-Palestinian demonstrations near Jewish institutions and houses of worship for ten days.

Canada has seen many vociferous anti-Israel demonstrations since the Hamas terror attacks, including protests targeting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who has been critical of Israel’s response to the attacks.
