“Intifada, Intifada, go back to the ovens,” were what Jewish and pro-Israel students had to endure on Wednesday night during a pro-Palestinian protest against a Reservist’s on Duty event at York University. Hundreds of anti-Israel students tried to storm and disrupt the event being held at the university campus with several scuffles breaking out.

Amit Deri, founder and CEO of Reservists on Duty, told The Jerusalem Post there were some 600 protesters who tried to disrupt the event and it became violent.“In the five years that we have been doing this, this was the biggest protests we’ve seen on a college campus,” he said. “It’s also the first time that we’ve seen a BDS [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions] and Antifa collaboration.”
