Montreal police are investigating a possible hate crime in which a Jewish man was punched in the face in Snowdon on Monday.
The alleged assault is just one of seven reported cases of anti-Semitism in Montreal since last weekend, a direct effect of growing tensions arising from increased violence between Israel and Gaza.
A French tourist, the man, who does not want to be identified because he fears for his safety, said he was walking out of a kosher restaurant on Queen Mary Rd Monday, talking to his sister about Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, when two men approached them in front of the Pharmaprix drug store.
One of the men punched him. Continue reading

Nazi and Communist propaganda posters
“In an article posted by the Canadian Immigration Report entitled “CIR response to ‘Milwaukee Sikh Temple Tragedy: White Supremacism, Nazism & Islam are Same Murderous Ideologies’”, they offer a defence of the Nazi National Socialism ideology.”
NDP MP Jinny Sims
The Nazis argued that capitalism damages nations due to international finance, the economic dominance of big business, and Jewish influences. Nazi propaganda posters in working-class districts emphasized anti-capitalism, such as one that said: “The maintenance of a rotten industrial system has nothing to do with nationalism. I can love Germany and hate capitalism.” Continue reading

Scrums: This is a nasty game
By Colin Horgan | Sep 28, 2012 3:52 pm |
At Maclean’s Thursday, Aaron Wherry called it the “new game of ‘Let’s See Which Disparate Subjects We Can Link For The Sake Of Denigrating Our Opponents’.” These are the catch-all statements or questions that attempt to grind two axes at once, even though they’re unrelated.
On Thursday, NDP MP Jinny Sims and immigration minister Jason Kenney explored this ridiculous debating tactic, and Friday, Sims gave it another try in the members’ statement she read out before question period. Continue reading

Subject: NDP Ethical Standards
It seems that NDP MP Jinny Sims has an interesting set of moral standards regarding whom see is willing to converse with or hear from.
On September 9, 2012, she spoke at a meeting in Surrey, BC hosted by a group known for its Communist orientation, “The Indo-Canadian Workers Association” , held to denounce Jason Kenny’s crackdown on fraudulent immigration applications. http://www.straight.com/print/776981
But 17 days later, as a member of the parliamentary committee on immigration, she objected to a presentation made by taxpayers connected to the website, “Canadian Immigration Report”, because it contained interviews with a “notorious white supremicist” Paul Fromm. While claiming that she was not opposed to diverse points of view and was not in favour of shutting them down, she was shocked and appalled with the “white nationalist” content of this website and did not think its views should be entertained by a parliamentary committe..
Hmm. Let me get this straight. Ms. Sims is OK with the views of Marxist-Leninists of her ethnicity, many of whom are not Canadian-born, but not OK with the views of Canadian-born democrats who oppose her mission of a multicultural Canada that exceeds the cultural, economic and ecological carrying capacity of the nation.
