The Toronto-based Palestine House has recently celebrated the 14th birthday of the Palestinian child terrorist Ahmed Manasrah and called for his immediate release from the Israeli jail.
The event was held on Friday, January 19, at the Palestine House offices in Mississauga, Ontario with the attendance of Chairman of the Palestine House, Fadlo Mechael, the Vice Chairman, Nazih Khataba, other board members, parents and children.
A birthday cake was baked in honour of Ahmad Manasrah and decorated with the following message written on it: “Happy Birthday. Freedom. Ahmad Manasrah, 13 years old boy, shot and caged by Israel.”
Children are seen holding colourful balloons and posters that read in Arabic: “Palestine House Canada [flags of Palestine and Canada], Free Ahmad Manasrah, Solidarity campaign with the child prisoner.”
A little girl greeted Manasrah on his birthday by reading the following message in French and English:
“Hi everyone, I’m Maryam Muhanad. We are Canadians Palestinians children came today to celebrate the 14th birth of Palestinian prisoner hero Ahamd Manasrah. We ask all the nations in the world for freedom to Ahmad Manasrah. Free, Free Ahmad Manasrah. Free, Free Ahmad Manasrah.” To watch the video click here. To see more pictures of the event click here.
Armed with kitchen knives, Ahmaed Manasrah, 13, went on October 12, 2015 with his cousin Hassan Manasra, 15, to Jerusalem’s Pisgat Zeev neighborhood to attack Jews.
The two Palestinian teenagers stabbed two Israelis, a 13-year-old, who was critically injured; and a 25-year-old, who was moderately injured. Hassan Manasra was shot dead by security forces after charging at police with a knife and Ahmaed Manasrah, was hit by a car, recovered after being treated in an Israeli hospital and is facing charges of attempted murder.
