VANCOUVER – B’nai Brith Canada is sounding the alarm about a B.C. man with self-proclaimed military experience who has repeatedly threatened to kill Jews online.

Marty Mullen, who also uses the aliases “Marty Tollington” and “Iron Horseman” on Facebook and Twitter, has said that he is “learning to kill Jewish Zionazis the Kosher Way” and proclaimed, “I am not going to be satisfied until I kill an entire Zionazi Jewish family.” “Zionazi” is a derogatory term for supporters of Israel that combines the words “Zionist” and “Nazi”.

Worryingly, Mullen also claims to be a former member of the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves and to have expertise with explosives.

B’nai Brith has urgently alerted the Sechelt Detachment of the RCMP about Mullen's activities. Mullen has also mused about murdering members of the RCMP.

“B’nai Brith is always concerned about public safety and the safety of our community,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada. “Threats to murder Jewish families and law enforcement officers absolutely cannot be tolerated.”

Sechelt is located in the Sunshine Coast region, about two hours northwest of Vancouver.

B’nai Brith’s 2018 Audit of Antisemitic Incidents recorded 374 antisemitic incidents in B.C., an increase of 126.7% over the 2017 figure.

On Wednesday, Vancouver City Council will consider a motion introduced by City Councillor Sarah Kirby-Yung to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism, which is used by B’nai Brith for its Audit and was adopted by the Government of Canada in June as part of its new Anti-Racism Strategy.

Just over a month ago, Mullen took to Twitter to encourage Generation Z and Millennials to commit suicide by “attacking large groups of Wealthy Zionazis wherever they gather.”
