The reason for it was the appalling crime committed by Palestinian Arabs against Jews in Samaria. Five members of the Fogel family from Itamar, including a 3-month baby, were slaughtered in cold blood. The world’s political leaders virtually ignored the crime, the mainstream media barely covered it.
Nothing new here – with the rampant anti-Semitism taking over the “progressive” media, you can’t expect anything different.
That’s why JDL-Canada decided to confront the indifference and remind the world that killing children is wrong. The protest took place at Palestine House. Officially defined as an “educational” and “cultural” institution, this sinister place has been the flagship of anti-Israeli bigotry for years.
Founded with the help of Mississauga’s ancient mayor Hazel McCallion, Palestine House has hosted scores of speakers with poorly disguised anti-Jewish views. It has raised money for questionable Arab causes. It is also a proud sponsor of the annual Jew-hate fest – the Israeli Apartheid Week. Despite all that, Palestine House hasn’t had troubles mooching money from the government in the form of subsidies.
The protesters gathered across the road from that place, under the watchful eye of the police. Waving Canadian and Israeli flags, carrying signs condemning the Palestinian atrocities, they made their message very clear.
Meir Weinstein, JDL-Canada’s Director, gave a short speech about the murder of the Fogel family. He called for more attention for the plight of the Israeli people. He also condemned organizations like Palestine House, which support the anti-Israeli bigotry and anti-Semitism and demanded that the government defund them.
While the protest was on, several cars with Arabs arrived at the House parking. After getting off, most of them looked at the protesters, pointed at them and laughed. It looks like no matter where they are – Gaza, Samaria, or Canada – they always carry their savagery with them.
