It is being reported that the man who sublet to Hishma Saadi said Saadi was a Concordia PhD student, but that’s not all…
It looks like Saadi is an Anti-Semite…
On the 6th day, the Israeli genocide continues. Yesterday, eight Canadian citizens were brutally massacred by Israeli bombers. At this crucial moment in our lives, it is important to protest against Mr. Harper's shameful position and to show our government that Lebanese blood is as precious as Israeli blood. We ask all Lebanese, our Arab colleagues, and all the friends of our fellow Canadians in Quebec, to present massively to the next demonstration in Montreal this Tuesday 5 pm at Dorchester Square. Residents from other provinces are asked to show up elsewhere in the country. Your symbolic presence will be a great psychological and moral support to our resisters and to the civilian population that is suffering and, unfortunately, will continue to pay the price of international silence to the crimes against humanity that Israel is committing.

Update: 1:00pm est.
VICE News reported an interview over twitter with a man named Hunter Wallace a board member of the Council of Conservative Citizens who denied the group has a Canadian chapter. “We have no idea who sent that letter. Whoever is doing it is acting on their own,” he said, adding that he first heard about the incident in media reports.
Another facebook interview VICE claimed to have was with a man named Paul Fromm who stated “We have no Quebec chapter,” and went on to say “The sorts of threats made yesterday are illegal and counterproductive. They may well be a black op by some force trying to create sympathy for Muslims.”
Montreal police report: “The file has been transferred to Major Crimes to make sure that we find the one or more people that are responsible.”
