Neo-Nazis are not pro-Israel
“Unbelievable, what we are descending into,” says Sounder, who sent me this link — and he is right.
“Hamas and Hezbollah supporters return to Calgary’s Jewish neighbourhood,” by Ezra Levant, January 16 (thanks to Sounder):
I don’t get it. Glenmore Landing is private property; with a word RioCan, the landlord, could demand that the pro-Hamas and pro-Hezbollah goons, who now gather there weekly, leave. That’s what mall security does when teens loiter on skateboards. How about foreign anti-Semitic provocateurs flying terrorist flags?
I know for a fact that several merchants in the mall are appalled — not just by their lost business, but by the offensive display of anti-Semitism permitted by their landlord. I just don’t get it. The bigots said they’ll be back — I’m sure they will. And I’m sure there will be more anti-Semitic graffiti in the neighbourhood. Today’s graffiti was just a block away from the Jewish Centre, and a block and a half from the synagogue. […]
You can already see an escalation.
At their first hate march, the Hezbollah flag was only unfurled near the end, as a specific taunt to a Jewish rabbi.
The police did nothing, though Hezbollah is listed in the Criminal Code as an illegal terrorist organization.
The bigots are learning. I bet the terrorist sympathizer who showed the flag last time was pretty nervous about it. But now he knows that’s the new normal. And so, at this rally, the Hezbollah flag was flown for almost the entire event. […]
I imagine that, the first time the S.A. stormtroopers marched in Germany 80 years ago, they were the ones who were afraid — afraid of public excoriation, afraid of vigilantism in response, afraid of police. But once they realized they could get away with it, once they gathered momentum, once the community indicated that it would do nothing to enforce their behavioural standards, it was the community that became afraid. […]
Again — as last time — the police told the pro-Israel counter-protesters that they risked being arrested for “inciting public disorder” if their tiny Jewish flag caused a conflagration. Did you get that? If the peaceful display of a Star of David “incited” the Hamas supporters to act violently, it would be the Israel supporters who would be charged. I wonder how much longer — months? years? — until police are telling people that wearing “provocative” Christian crosses is cause for arrest, too.
