Al-Quds arrest protest planned in front of Toronto mosque - walk your dog
From the TORONTO Sun
- A Facebook page has been launched inviting people to walk their dogs outside an east-end mosque during Islamic prayer sessions.
The call to action has been launched to protest a man being arrested while walking his English mastiff at an anti-Israel rally at Queen’s Park last Saturday.
The Facebook page encourages people to bring dogs “of all colours and breeds” to the Salahuddin mosque in Scarborough’s Brimley Rd. and Eglinton Ave. E. area in the afternoon of Sept. 14. The page is in response to the treatment of a Jewish man and his dog while at a rally held outside Queens Park by an Islamic group marking Al-Quds Day, a yearly event calling for the destruction of Israel and the establishment of a Palestinian state.
Allan Einstoss, a Jew who opposes the Al-Quds doctrine, showed up at the August 18 rally last with his big-yet-friendly English mastiff, Cupcake. After Einstoss was allegedly told by an Al-Quds demonstrator to keep the dog away, he claims to have been punched in the chest by another. When Einstoss pushed back, he was handcuffed and held by Toronto police.
Cupcake was also reportedly kicked by one of the Al-Quds demonstrators.
The Facebook page states
On September 14th, 2012, in response to the Muslim kicking of the dog at al Quds Day, everyone is asked to bring your dog and walk in front of the radical Salahuddin Mosque in Scarborough Ontario. Our CANADIAN VALUES Dog Walk will correspond with Islamic prayer times. We will be holding this event in conjunction with Canadian Hindu Advocacy.
Mr Einstoss is interviewed by Canadian journalist David Menzies for Canadian TV here.
