Pro-Palestine Positions: Air Canada Pilot Suspended

The positions taken by the pilot Mostafa Ezzo were first chosen by the StopAntisemitism account of the social network X.

Photos shared by this account show the pilot posing for a demonstration. He held a sign that read, in English, that “Adolf Hitler should be proud of Israel”, a “terrorist state”.

Mostafa Ezzo also shared on his social networks – now deleted – a call for a demonstration for Palestine on Sunday in Dorchester Square, emblazoned with the message “Fuck you Israel, Burn in hell”.

“We are aware of unacceptable messages posted by an Air Canada pilot. We are taking this matter seriously and have removed it from service on Monday October 9,” Air Canada responded in the afternoon of X, after being asked to many Internet users, including conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner.

Asked to react, the carrier confirmed that the suspended pilot was indeed Mostafa Ezzo.

“This person is not allowed to speak publicly and identified himself as an Air Canada employee and was removed from the service on Monday, meaning he is no longer flying while we look at what happens next. .

Demonstrations in support of Palestine took place in several Canadian cities on Sunday, following the bloody surprise attack launched by Hamas against Israel. These demonstrations were widely condemned by the political class.
