Ryerson TA dismissed for anti-Semitic comments

Post by Thorin on Mon Mar 06, 2017 7:21 am

A teaching assistant in Ryerson’s faculty of engineering and architectural science no longer works for the university after he made anti-Semitic comments at a downtown Toronto mosque last summer.
Ayman Elkasrawy had called for the purification of the “Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of Jews.”
Ryerson University President Mohamed Lachemi said in a statement that the university became aware of the situation “a week ago” and “has taken appropriate action.” A full version of Lachemi’s statement is available here.

According to a video, which has since been removed, posted online by the Masjid Toronto mosque, Elkasrawy said the following. It has been translated from Arabic:

“O Allah! Destroy anyone who killed Muslims. O Allah! Destroy anyone who displaced the sons of the Muslims. O Allah! Count their number; slay them one by one and spare not one of them. O Allah! Purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews! O Allah! Purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews!”

Elkasrawy tweeted an apology in February. Masjid Toronto has also apologized. Toronto Police are looking into the incident.
