A few months ago we were told that the notorious anti-Semitic group Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QuAIA), which has caused many problems to the homosexual activism in Toronto, has disbanded. Its presence at the various parades had always created controversy by spreading outright lies about Israel and its people. The funding of the “pride week” has been questioned many times over the participation of QuAIA in their events. Even the current Mayor John Tory stated months ago that the annual festivities would be defunded, if the anti-Semitic group takes part in any of the events.
The news about the end of QuAIA was a cause for jubilation among Jews and everybody else, who supports Israel in its struggle against terrorism. I was skeptical – the news sounded too good to be true and I was sure that they will find a way to get in again. Today’s annual Toronto Dyke March proved me right.
The event is a demonstration of Toronto’s lesbians. Today it took place again despite the heavy rain. The groups and organizations that want to participate in the parades are scrutinized and can be rejected. This year they went after the harmless men’s rights group CAFE, which was banned because of its unproven “misogynist” ideas. They were banned alright, but it appears that for the activists of the Toronto homosexual movement being anti-Semitic is perfectly acceptable.
During the previous years a common excuse for the presence of the anti-Semitic group has been the explanation that they “crashed” the parade at certain point. In this year’s Dyke March they were present from the very beginning at Church/Bloor and were allowed to march until the end absolutely undisturbed and were even cheered by the other participants (that is shown in the series of photos below). There were also people in the other groups with signs – you can see one in the same photos.
So I have a question – what are you going to do now, Mayor Tory? Are you going to fulfill your promise or pretend that nothing happened? The same question applies to all politicians, who collect brownie points by taking part in the “pride week.” Will they say anything? Or will they sweep it under the rug to avoid offending the “gay community”. Tomorrow is the main parade, where we will see almost every major politician, who will try to show how “tolerant” he or she is. It looks like being tolerant to anti-Semitism is part of the deal.
Here are a few photos, which show the group marching from the beginning to the end. In the end of the article I have included a very short movie showing QuAIA in action during Dyke March 2015.
