Suzanne Weiss is a long time pro Palestinian Jewish activist and a member of Independent Jewish Voices Canada. On January 31, 2019 she was a speaker at an event organized by IfNotNow Toronto.

On June 10, 2018 Suzanne Weiss shared Nazih Khatatba’s video featuring participants in Al-Quds rally in Toronto chanting (June 9, 2018):

  • Free free Palestine
  • Long live Palestine
  • Millions of martyrs [in the path of Allah] march to [the city of] Al-Quds [Jerusalem] [Originally in Arabic]
  • Freedom to Palestine occupation in a crime
  • All of us or none of us
  • The people united will never be defeated

Suzanne Weiss stated:

“Well done! Excellent Al Quds [Day rally in Toronto] this year. Thoughtful and well organized demonstration in support of the Palestinian freedom struggle. BDS [Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions] all the way!”

Sheikh Shafiq Hudda, a keynote speaker at Al-Quds Day rally, said in his speech:

“I am praying for a day to come in our lifetime, where we won’t need the Al-Quds rally because Palestine will be free. Oppression will be eradicated, injustice will end, that’s the day we pray for. So we don’t have to meet every Saturday in the holy month of Ramadan. This is our prayer to the almighty creator, whether you call him God or Allah. You call him Jehovah or whatever name you want to call him. We pray to the creator and to the almighty, a day will come when we see justice throughout the world. The eradication of the unjust powers such as the American empire, such as the Israeli Zionists. And the same way that we saw the British Empire wither away, the sun never set on it… the sun sets on it. We will see a day coming inshallah, God willing in our lifetime, where this empire, the Zionist empire, the American empire will be down in the dustbins of history inshallah God willing.”

A speaker at Al-Quds Day rally said:

“We are gathered here today to condemn the Israeli war crimes, to stand against the extreme racism by the settlers who believe that they have a God given right to oppress the Palestinians as God has chosen the Zionists as the superior race.”

Other slogans chanted by the crowd:

  • Zionism is terrorism, down with Zionism
  • Zionism is racism, down with Zionism
  • Netanyahu you will see Palestine will be free
  • From the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea Palestine will be free
  • Israel is racism
  • Death death to Israel (originally in Persian)
