On April 14, 2018 the Palestine House held its annual commemoration of the Land Day at Capitol Banquette Hall in Mississauga, ON.
The Land Day symbolizes the Palestinian unwavering commitment to defend the land and to “liberate” Palestine.
The keynote speaker at the event was Palestinian Archbishop Atallah Hanna who is known of his support of Syria’s Assad regime and the Palestinian intifada against Israel. “We emphasize our solidarity with Syria, its President, government, people and army,” Hanna posted on his Facebook page.
Hanna added: “President Assad is a distinct Arab national person and history will record the name of this great leader who worked to foil the conspiracy against the State of Syria with the Arab Syrian Army and all the sons of the Syrian people… President Assad is not a murderer or a butcher as some say and circulate, but he is a distinct Arab national leader.” See also “Atallah Hanna arrived in Toronto to attend Palestine House’s Land Day event” (click HERE)
