Al-Quds Day: The good, the bad, the ugly and the “perversely ironic” simultaneous Dyke March

David MenziesMission Specialist

In the aftermath of the Al-Quds rally at Toronto’s Queen’s Park earlier this month, what did we learn? Well, if you had to make a movie about the event, we could entitle it The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Both the pro and anti Al-Quds crowds, while vocal and sometimes profane, didn't cross the line into violence. That was good.

As for bad, Queen’s Park still has a lot of explaining to do. Would they have let a group like the Ku Klux Klan or a neo-Nazi organization rally on the grounds? Of course not.

But it’s easy to say “no” to hateful white folks, not so easy to say no to hateful Islamist groups. The cowards in charge are terrified of being labelled as Islamophobic.

For progressives, it’s all about optics: many of the pro Al-Quds demonstrators are brown-skinned, wear strange clothes, and speak with an accent. Case closed.

As for the ugly, many of the Islamists bussed into Queen’s Park had an irrational hatred for Jews and Israel.

Watch as I explore a bit of the history and some of the unsavoury characters involved with the creation of this day.

When you do, you’ll also see irony that just a few blocks away from Queen’s Park, the annual Dyke March was being held.

Progressives embrace anti-Israeli policies even though it's the only country in the Middle East that holds Gay Pride Parades. Social justice warriors ally themselves with people who vehemently reject the western values that they supposedly embrace like freedom of speech, freedom of the press, women’s rights, and gay rights.

If the Al-Quds people were to get their way, their first act would be to shut down those LGBT parades just a stone’s throw away from Queen’s Park in a province governed by a woman who is openly lesbian.

Ugly indeed – as well as perversely ironic.

Palestine belongs to Israel. The map I have that shows what Israel likely looked like 3700 years ago is very similar to the map of Israel today

Thanks, Bill. I appreciate the information. It is very helpful in my understanding of the situation.

Yikes! Don’t say, “Just a stone’s throw away.” It may give them ideas…

Paul, they are neturei karta.. a extremely fringe sect roughly equivalent to the westboro baptist church… of the couple thousand in the entire world, there are several hundred that partake in extreme anti-Israeli activities… lefties often like to depict them as mainstream thus their prominent position behind the banner.

Just above the “tinian” and the “geno”.

That looks like two Hasidic Jews just behind the Pro-Palestinian anti-Zionist, anti-Israel banner.

We have lost our collective minds. Only a matter of time now…

Jesus the Christ, “And woe to you hypocrites!”.

The former Egyptian dictator used to put political opponents in jail.. under what charge? His rational was that there is “only room for one voice”, that is against Israel. He argued that if people are talking about various rights and freedoms, it takes time away from demonizing the giant boogie man he had created, Israel… but the truth is, Israel was being used as an excuse or distraction from his own abhorrent crimes and oppression. After the 1979 coup in Iran, they copied the same strategy and invented al-quds day. While the lower IQ segment of Iranians and their low IQ allies are tilting at Israeli windmills, their regimes carryout the most vile atrocities against their own people with impunity.

So the next thing to do is for Rebel Media to interview an Imam with ties to Queens Park and ask his (not her) opinion of homosexuality, particularly of the lesbian kind.
