Anti-Israel students physically attacked Jewish students at Concordia University in Montreal Canada for daring to put up a table with posters of Israeli kids kidnapped by Hamas.
The Jewish students had set up a table with posters of the hostages and other materials in a common area reserved for such activities. Jewish students were pushed around, harassed and faced a barrage of hate speech, including slurs, the release says.
"These anti-Semitic and violent acts are completely unacceptable and must be condemned by all," said Yair Szlak, president and CEO of Federation CJA, in the release. "College campuses are not battlefields."
Mayor Valérie Plante also condemned the violence on X, formerly known as Twitter.
"Acts of violence such as those that affected Concordia students today and the attack on a synagogue yesterday are unacceptable," she said.
