On March 30, 2019 Pro Palestinian activists and members of Neturei Karta held a rally in Montreal in commemoration of the Land Day.

Yisroel Dovid Weiss, the spokesman for Neturei Karta, was the keynote speaker at the event. Here are excerpts from his speech:

“…Palestine during the Ottoman Empire, we were living in the same courtyards, we were babysitting each other children. So many beautiful stories about co-existence. Has anything changed between these religions? Nothing! What has changed in the last 70 years, almost 100 yeas, there is this strife and bloodshed. One thing has changed – a development of a selfish flawed evil movement called Zionism. That is the one and only thing that has changed… Zionism is built, the State of Israel is built on stealing and killing… How dare the world state and claim and accuse the Palestinians of being antisemitic? Antisemitic is the Zionist State of Israel. Antisemitic are the Zionists around the world that create this rift and hate between Jews and Muslims… The Palestinian people and the Jewish people together are suffering at the Satan, at the hands of the Satan of the שטן of of the Satan [Zionism]… You are not antisemitic if you oppose the occupation. You are antisemitic if you stand with the occupation. You are anti-Semite if you are Zionist. You are anti-Semite if you wave the Israeli flag… They [Zionists] are the real anti-Semites. Let’s not be apologetic. Let’s be on the offence. My heart with Palestine [قلبي مع فلسطين]. My heart with Gaza [قلبي مع غزة]… Don’t call this a Jewish State. That just playing into the hands of the Zionists so they could accuse you of being antisemitic. Call it what it is, a Zionist State of Israel… a rebellion against God… Judaism yes, Zionism no. The State of Israel has to go. One, two, three, four, Zionism no more. Five, six, seven, eight Israel is not a Jewish State… Five, six, seven, eight end the killing, end the hate. Free, free Falestine [فلسطين Palestine]. Free, free Palestine. Assalamualaikum [Peace be upon you السلام عليكم].”

Jaoudat Najjar led the participants in chanting together:

Free, free Palestine

Occupation is a crime

Viva, viva Palestina

Solidarity with Palestine [originally in French]

Long live Palestine [originally in Arabic]

With [our] souls and blood we will redeem Palestine [originally in Arabic]

Down down Israel

One, two, three, four Israel no more

One, two, three, four occupation no more

Five, six, seven, eight stop killing, stop the hate

From the river to the sea Palestine will be free

Netanyahu you will see Gaza will be free

Stop killing Palestine
