School board investigates Mississauga teacher after speech at pro-Palestinian rally

A Mississauga, Ont., teacher is being investigated by the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board after she spoke at a rally in early July urging Palestinians to fight back against Israel and praising a group that the Canadian government lists as a terrorist entity.

Nadia Shoufani, a teacher at St. Catherine of Siena Separate School in Mississauga, praised two people linked to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine: Ghassan Kanafani, a Palestinian writer killed in 1972; and Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, a Lebanese militant imprisoned in France for killing two U.S. and Israeli officials.

"Palestine will be liberated. Glory to the martyrs," she said to a crowd at the International Al-Quds Day rally on July 2 behind Queen's Park in Toronto. "We have the right to fight back. We have the right to resist," she said.

Bruce Campbell, general manager of communications and community relations for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board, said Wednesday an investigation has begun. He said the matter was brought to the board's attention through a number of sources, including the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center and B'nai Brith Canada.

"The board was made aware of this issue last week and is investigating," Campbell said. "Given the serious nature of the issue, we would look to reach a resolution as quickly as possible."  (more...)

Do the footsoldiers know who they're working for? Unlikely. Neo-Catholics self-select for stupidity.
