Unfortunately, that’s not a Monty Python sketch – it was a very real event that took place today in Toronto. The Arab demonstration was supposed to commemorate Nakba, the so-called “catastrophe” that happened in 1948. According to the mythology, on May 15 of that year, after Israel was founded, the evil Jews kicked out 750,000 “Palestinians” from the Israeli land to have the whole territory for themselves.
As with many made up events in the Arab history, that’s not exactly what happened. The next day after the independence of Israel was declared, all of her Arab neighbours attacked it from all sides. The Arabs living there were urged by the invaders to leave temporarily in order to make the extermination of the Jews easier.
As it usually happens with people who have nothing to lose, the Jews fought back and won. The Muslims, who were duped into leaving, still reside in camps on the territories of their Arab “benefactors” in conditions not much better than a human zoo. The zoo conditions didn’t prevent them from breeding to the point that their number increased to over 7 million.
At the same time in the late 1940’s as an act of revenge for their defeat, the Arab countries kicked out over 900,000 Jews, who eventually settled in Israel.
Fast forward to modern times – now Israel is a highly developed country with enormous achievements in science (with over 100 Nobel Prize winners) and many branches of industry and agriculture. Most of the Arab countries are still cesspools of ignorance and fanaticism, with one Nobel Prize winner – the terrorist Arafat.
It is customary that the losers scheme to take away what the winner has achieved. This situation is not an exception – not only do the “Palestinians” want their state, but they also want the 7 million descendants to return to Israel. That’s a neat way to wipe out the Jews, destroy their achievements and confiscate everything they have.
That was the purpose of the Arab rally today – to show the world that they want everything and they want it now (although the number of participants wasn’t that impressive). Unfortunately, people on the other side are not dumb. JDL-Canada organized a counter-rally in front of the Israeli consulate on Bloor Street.
The turnout was great – it was nice to see people of different ages, races and nationalities gathered to confront the madness. They made their point in a peaceful, but firm way. The Toronto Police made sure that everything went on smoothly – both demonstrations took place on opposite sides of the street.
But even they couldn’t predict all the variables – at certain point, near the end of the event, three Muslims crossed the street to start confrontation and possibly a fight. The police quickly interfered to neutralize them. It’s interesting that during the anti-Galloway rally at York University last year, the Muslims attempted exactly the same type of provocation.
If there is a lesson to be learned from the event – it is that not all people are mindless Chomsky zombies, most of us think and remember history. The lefties
can’t dupe everybody into believing their mythology. We know the truth and we are not afraid to stand for it.
