Canadian Man Arrested After Posting Antisemitic Vitriol on Social Media

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s Quebec division in Westmount has arrested Montrealer Houssem Hammami, 37.

Hammami is charged with inciting hatred in connection to violent comments posted on social media. He will appear at the Montreal courthouse on January 30.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between Oct. 14, one week after the Hamas terrorist attack that killed 1,400 people in Israel, and Nov. 1. A court document says the alleged action could lead to a breach of the peace.

Community leaders in Montreal have been calling on legal action to be taken against Imam Adil Charkaoui, who is the subject of a criminal complaint filed in November. The complaint was filed after Charkaoui told a pro-Hamas downtown Montreal rally, “Allah, take care of these Zionist aggressors. Allah, take care of the enemies of the people of Gaza. Allah, identify them all, then exterminate them. And don’t spare any of them!”
