Conservative MP Melissa Lantsman is calling for increased security measures to be put in place for Jewish communities across Canada after Hamas put out a global call for Muslims to mobilize in support of the terrorists on Oct. 13.
“The dangerous and hateful rhetoric from Hamas terrorists inciting violence this Friday around the world must be taken seriously. They have already inspired large protests in support of their evil acts,” said Ms. Lantsman in a statement on Oct. 11.
“All levels of government MUST ensure adequate security and protective measures are in place for Jewish schools, synagogues, and community centres across the country,” she added.
Former Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal has called for a “Day of Jihad” on Oct. 13, asking Muslims across the world to “take to the streets” in protest against Israel, as well as for Muslims of neighbouring countries to join the fight in support of Hamas.
