2002 Concordia University riot: Delegitimization of Israel in Canada

Here is a documentary, Discordia, made by the National Film Board of Canada about a riot that occured at Concordia University in 2002. Benjamin Netanyahu, today’s Israel Prime Minister, was being invinted to speak in front of a group of Jewish students. When leftist and Islamist activists learned the news, they organized a protest that rapidly turned into a riot. The CSU, Concordia’s student association, was apparently deeply involved in the organization of the protest-turned-into-a-riot, both its President, Sabine Freisinger, and Vice-President, Aaron Maté, being part of it. In the face of the growing violence outside the walls of the conference room, a decision was made to cancel the event and Netanyahu left the building discretely. In the document, you can see among other characters a few of the activists who are involved in the Quebec chapter of the worldwide campaign of delegitimization of Israel, the BDS — Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions — namely Sabine Freisinger, President of the CSU at the time of the riot, and Chadi Marouf. This campaign in Quebec, by the way, is being promoted under the leadership and approval of Amir Khadir, MNA of Mercier. You can also see in the documentary Jaggi Singh, the well-known anti-globalization activist, being present in the offices of the CSU and giving his best « advice » for the handling of the situation. Singh was arrested for his behavior during the G20 Conference in Toronto. Among other things, he ploted to take down a security fence. Along with Singh, you can see the Vice-President of the CSU, Aaron Maté, and Chadi Marouf, all together in the offices of the CSU. Every saturday Chadi Marouf, Sabine Freisinger, Bill Sloan, member of the Communist Party of Canada, and others are targeting a shoeseller of Montreal, Le Marcheur store, as he and his wife sell some shoes made in Israel, corresponding to 2% of their sales.
