My husband Arnie blogs as BlazingCatFur, and frequently videotapes anti-Israeli demonstrations here in Toronto.
This morning, he taped a demonstration against Benyamin Netanyahu’s visit to the city. The demo was co-sponsored by taxpayer funded Palestine House.
While filming a public demonstration on a public sidewalk, my husband was approached by Ali Mallah — the Vice President of the Canadian Arab Federation, and high ranking member of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE)/Canadian Labour Congress. (Mr. Mallah is no stranger to controversy.)
Mallah recognized my husband, crossed the street, and verbally and physically assaulted him.
Arnie was unhurt.
