‘Disturbing antisemitic advertisement’ debuts in Toronto

(JNS) The capital city in Ontario, Canada, launched a “Toronto for All” campaign last September after Toronto police data showed Jews were the city’s most targeted group for hate crimes in 2021. Now, Jewish leaders are expressing outrage at a very different public effort. A new advertisement displayed in the city succinctly states that “anti-apartheid is not antisemitism,” above, below and within a blue Star of David. On Twitter, Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center called it “an incredibly disturbing antisemitic advertisement.” It added that it filed a complaint with the advertising company and asked that it be removed immediately.Last December, a group carried signs stating “Free Palestine” and “Apartheid Zionist child killers” in a Jewish Toronto neighborhood.
