Wherever there are vast numbers of Muslim immigrants, pro-BDS protests are sure to follow. On Wednesday afternoon, pro-BDS thugs invaded one of Toronto’s Jewish neighborhoods to hold an anti-Israel protest. The protest occurred in front of the B’nai Brith headquarters. Members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers also participated in the event.
This is what the leaders of the BDS Movement accomplished in Britain. The BDS leaders in Britain successfully infiltrated the British trade unions, so that they can support efforts to delegitimize Israel. This forces left-wing politicians (like Jeremy Corbyn) to express a ferocious anti-Israel tone as a way to obtain the political support from the various unions. As expected, the JDL was the only Jewish organization to counter-protest this hate fest.
“WARMINGTON: Anti-Israel protesters take rally into residential streets,” by Joe Warmington, Toronto Sun, August 30, 2018:
If a pro-Palestine protest in a Jewish-Canadian neighbourhood was meant to intimidate, the head of B’nai Brith Canada says it didn’t work.
In fact, says B’nai Brith Canada CEO Michael Mostyn, it did the opposite.
“I can tell you we were not intimidated. What it did was galvanize the community.”
This is what was on display on normally quiet Hove Street — near Sheppard Ave. and Bathurst St. — when about 200 people protectively stood in front of the B’nai Brith headquarters to fend off a group of 80 people attending the “Rally To Oppose B’nai Brith Canada’s Smear Campaign Against The Canadian Union Of Postal Workers.”
What ensued for two hours was a no-holds-barred screamfest over loudspeakers — with opposing factions stationed on opposite sides of the street separated by Toronto police.
It featured the usual rhetoric and heated tempers, but what made this one different was it was on a residential street — home to many Jewish families.
“There are holocaust survivors who live here,” said an irate Meir Weinstein, national director of the Canadian chapter of the Jewish Defence League. “There is a synagogue dedicated to the holocaust just one minute away. This was very offensive to come here.”
But the protesters — bolstered by about 20 women wearing niqabs and some children who stepped off a school bus about halfway through — called this a “peaceful rally” to “show solidarity with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW)” who they say was “smeared by B’nai Brith due to CUPW’s principled advocacy for the human rights of the Palestinian people. B’nai Brith asserted that CUPW had aligned itself with the Palestinian Postal Service Workers Union (PPSWU), which B’nai Brith accuses of being ‘pro-terrorist’”
Lawyer Dimitri Lascaris said “virtually the whole world now understands that Israel is an apartheid state.”
But Noah Shack, Vice-President of Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA,) said “what the Jewish community of Bathurst Manor witnessed today is a failed attempt at intimidation by a hateful group of protesters who boasted of ‘taking it to their neighbourhood’. It is absolutely unacceptable that these tactics are being used to sow discord between communities in our city.”…
