Canadian Defenders For Human Rights (CD4HR) is a pro Palestinian Canadian registered non for profit organization (NO.1067715-9). Its Co-Managers are Aliya Hasan and Firas Al Najim.

On August 20, 2019 CD4HR announced a new BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) initiative targeting entities, products and individuals affiliated with Israel. Here is CD4HR’s statement:

Hello everyone! Please check out our new page! We ask that you share it in groups with all your dear ones, especially to active caring people in your networks. To strengthen the fight for justice, we must strive and sacrifice. Our page is being bombarded by zionists that have been whistle-blowed by their JDL [Jewish Defence League] leader this morning. Please show your support and learn about all the products and companies running in Toronto, in Canada, and worldwide that support the illegal occupation and settlement colonialism of Palestinian land. Since leaders won’t stand against heinous war crimes and impose sanctions on the illegal zionist state, then we will hurt their economy and impose our own consequences! They cannot force us to buy israeli products and we will raise awareness about these corporations’ activities! #Palestine will be FREE! https://www.facebook.com/Boycott-Israeli-interestsproducts-in-Canada-105970757429445/

CD4HR’s new BDS Facebook page is called “Boycott Israeli interests/products in Canada.”

Activists with CD4HR took photos of Israeli products and businesses in Toronto and Vaughan, posted them on the new BDS Facebook page and called on Canadians to boycott them. Here are some of the posts on “Boycott Israeli interests/products in Canada”:

August 15, 2019 – “#BOYCOTT #ISRAEL BONDS IMMEDIATELY!”

August 19, 2019 -”Today we found a whole section [of Israeli products] that needs to be BOYCOTTED!”

August 19, 2019 – “#BOYCOTT occupation products at all times! #Toronto #Canada”

August 19, 2019 “#BOYCOTT this #Zionist restaurant in Vaughan city! By the name and flag you see what kind of propaganda they are promoting. #Toronto #Canada”

August 19, 2019 – “#BOYCOTT Elie Tahari clothing as it’s a Zionist company! This brand is common in Winners and Marshalls. Females and males. These are males jogging pants. Here is an article about how this Zionist designer also served in the #idf war criminal forces: https://ipfs.io/…/QmXoypizjW3WknFiJnK…/wiki/Elie_Tahari.html”

August 19, 2019 – “#BOYCOTT this #Zionist product. Females and males. This is a female jacket sold in Winners and Marshalls. Here is an article about how this Zionist designer also served in the #idf war criminal forces: https://ipfs.io/…/QmXoypizjW3WknFiJnK…/wiki/Elie_Tahari.html”

August 19, 2019 – “#BOYCOTT Gratify products. Common in Winners and Marshals stores.”

August 20, 2019 – “#BOYCOTT JNF Toronto as they are supporting the war criminal #israeli regime’s army that is dedicated to committing any human rights violation to safeguard the occupation and occupiers!”

August 20, 2019 – “#BOYCOTT Sadaf food products as they operate their companies in the illegitimate regime named #israel. To view the video with proof: https://www.facebook.com/105970757429445/videos/363091524606266?s=100012770280035&v=e&sfns=mo

August 20, 2019 – “#BOYCOTT Sadaf, a #Zionist company that uses a covert Persian/Arabic name to benefit from the nation that is being oppressed by the occupation and their regional/global evil policies. The lawyer said we are registered in #Israel & “ We love to support israel”. Watch how they think they have taken Palestinian foods such as stuffed grape leaves and hummus calling it #Israeli products. Deceit and theft to another level. Spread the word widely.”

August 20, 2019 – “Help the #Boycott movement to impose our own sanctions and pressure on the Zionist regime and its supporters in Canada. Please take pics and videos of any products or interests and send it to our inbox or email at: [email protected] Thank you!”

August 20, 2019 – “This is absurd, disturbing and really damaging to the beautiful diverse city of #Vaughan. We call on Canadians to file complaints to the city of #Vaughan to have this sign removed or replaced with #Ramla, #Palestine. This is intimidating and painful to the hearts of all the people that are suffering from the #Zionist illegitimate regimes occupation of Palestine.”

Responding to a comment “Tahari is an AMERICAN company, incorporated in New Jersey. You are boycotting it because its founder is a JEW. Tell me again how BDS is not a Nazi hate movement?” “Boycott Israeli interests/products in Canada” wrote: “Boycott Israeli interests/products in Canada Hello Ilana. Where it was incorporated is completely irrelevant. Their founder is Israeli and supports the Zionist economy. It is not because they are Jewish. It is because they are supporting the occupation of illegal lands. The real hate movement is the one that has pushed out 6 million plus Indigenous Palestinians with no way to return. Thanks for your comment and concern.”

On August 20, 2019 “Boycott Israeli interests/products in Canada” issued the following statement: “Once again the Zionists and their blind supporters are attacking our brand new Facebook page with their most common, ever popular accusation and overused defamation card “Anti-Semitism”. Everyone knows very well this card has been dismantled as CD4HR has many #Jewish righteous allies including the honourable Neturei Karta International. The #Zionist illegitimate regime will be dismantled and their interests will be sanctioned by the FREE people worldwide, especially in our peaceful lovely land of #Canada. #Boycottisrael”
