No fists were thrown Thursday evening, only harsh words as Ezra Levant continued his quest to take Calgary’s mayor and police chief to task over violence at a recent pro-Palestinian rally.

Or as the Sun columnist and Sun News Network personality calls it, a recent riot.

A couple of weeks ago, pro-Israelis were assaulted by pro-Palestinians in a skirmish at a rally outside city hall in downtown Calgary, resulting in minor injuries.

Photos and video of the violent altercation went viral.

Levant said during Thursday evening’s Calgary for Israel rally, again at city hall, “That’s Gaza, not Canada.”

 

And Levant said the worst thing of all about the incident was it happened without the intervention of police.

“I do not believe that it was a random accident that there were no police. I believe that it was the chief of police or the mayor himself who were making a political decision not to inflame a mob,” Levant told the crowd of more than 600.

“To this day, the chief of police and the mayor and the police commission have not sufficiently condemned the riot.”
