A billboard truck promoting Hamas.com parked in front of McGill University, where an anti-Israel encampment is ongoing. It stopped by the Roddick Gates, in front of McGill University, where the encampment has been ongoing since April 27.

The website, designed to look supportive of Hamas but highlighting the terrorist organization's crimes from the Oct. 7, 2023, attack against Israel, was being promoted by Israeli supporters who tried to engage in peaceful dialogue with the anti-Israel group.

Police ultimately removed the pro-Israel group from the campus.

According to people on the ground, the billboard truck didn’t provoke any reaction from the campers, but it was when Jewish students with some supporters came onto the grounds of McGill premises that the anti-Israel supporters reacted by encircling them and chanting antisemitic slogans around them.

Among them was a McGill student on the campus, who heard about the escalation in tension and came into the park to see his friends.

“We didn’t even touch their signs; we didn’t remove their sign. We sat around the signs,” he said. “I am a student here, and I am currently being blocked from my own campus. I was asked very politely by the police to leave.”

According to the Israeli supporters, their goal was only to have a discussion and not to counter-protest. Only Rudy Rochman had a sign with, which said “There is no future without Israelis and Palestinians, let’s talk.”

Rochman is a Jewish Israeli activist, who has travelled around to talk with the anti-Israel supporters about the current issues.

While reporting on the ground, one of the protesters who was not appreciative of Rebel News' presence told us, “Go Home.” When confronted about this, they assumed we were lying.

The anti-Israel encampment is now facing a second injunction requested by McGill University, but the lawyers involved in the case have pushed back the date back to July 25.
