As the spokesperson and organizer for the Calgary Palestinian protest, Saima Jamal was quoted by the Calgary Sun after Israeli supporters were attacked:
Saima Jamal, a member of Justice for Palestinians and one of the rally’s organizers said the demonstration was always supposed to be peaceful and suggested tensions would have been less frayed had police been there from the start.
“Whatever happened here had nothing to do with the organizers,” she said.
“We’re holding a pre-rally meeting on Wednesday and we’ll be issuing a public statement apologizing for any violence.” (see here)
What the Calgary Sun reporter Shawn Logan didn’t include was this Facebook posting by Jamal immediately after these Israeli supporters were assaulted:
Jamal is employed at the University of Calgary as “Project Manager, Consortium for Peace Studies” (see here) which has turned into a hotbed of Islamic extremism exposed by an ex-professor who quit because the administration wouldn’t protect him from being intimidated:
A former professor at the University of Calgary says he left his tenured position after colleagues refused to respond to his concerns about students spreading radical Muslim views.
Aaron Hughes, a prolific author on religion who holds a PhD on Islamic studies, said he once found a message scrawled in Arabic across his classroom’s chalkboard endorsing Islamic Jihad and Hamas, widely considered a terrorist group by Western countries.
Mr. Hughes, who is Jewish, said he interpreted the message as anti-Semitic, but he said the university declined to remove the offending student from his class.
“I would have to go teach this class as a victim staring my aggressor in the face,” he said. (see here)
But to the Media Party, the bad part of Calgary are all the white, male rednecks and exposing it as a viper’s nest of terrorists and their sympathizers doesn’t fit the narrative.
