Open hatred of Jews ignored while media, politicians obsess over “Islamophobia”

Brian LilleyArchive

Student leaders call for punching zionists, claims it was the zionists that carried out the Quebec City mosque attack and even prayers for the killing of the Jews - these are just some of the examples of open hatred towards Jews that we have learned of in the past week or so.

Does this make national news? Sometimes stories like this do but other times they’re pushed down the media food chain - covered mostly locally, or in community papers like CIJ News.

We definitely don’t hear anchors across the country reading about these stories in the same concerned tone as if other groups had faced a threat.

Watch as I share some of those stories with you, beginning with the “punch a Zionist” student leader at McGill, anti-semitic flyers on the campus of Western University, the Quebec Imam calling for Allah to “destroy the accursed Jews” or “kill them one by one” to “make their children orphans and their women widows”.

Have these stories been in your newsfeed non-stop, or on every newscast?

No, they haven’t been getting near the coverage they should.

There’s a big debate over a motion in the House of Commons to combat Islamophobia.

So let me give politicians and the media a free tip then. You want to combat Islamophobia, defined or not - you want to make sure Canadians don’t start harbouring anti-Muslim feelings?

Then stop treating every possible slight against Muslims as breaking news that must be shared, that must be denounced that must be told and retold again and again and again.

Take any of the three stories I’ve just told and make the victims or the targets Muslims instead of Jews and we would be having story after story about the wave of anti-Muslim sentiment in Canada - but when it is Jews that are the targets - it is virtually crickets.

Canadians are fair people, they don’t like anyone getting special treatment, and don’t like double standards but right now, as any Jew or supporter of Israel can tell you, there is a double standard. And it won’t lead to good things.

Deborah Graupner; How right you are. From the Arabian Peninsula to Spain, Russia, the Caucuses you name it . Pogroms of varying degrees all went bad for the Jews’ hosts.

That was such an excellent report to prove the hypocrisy of M103 which is only regarding islam and nobody else. Maybe it’s going to take massive amounts of people from all other non muslim religions to expose stories like these about anti Semitism, how the muslims are offended by all Christians and have demanded for all Christian symbols to be removed, stop saying Merry Christmas, have gotten the Lord’s prayer out and are now putting in special muslim prayer rooms in all schools right up to university levels, are now demanding for the compulsory teaching of the koran and islam in schools etc etc. Are all Canadians that stupid, are the liberals that stupid (well, never mind that one) not to see what’s happening here? And if this m103 gets passed it should be fought tooth and nail right up to the supreme court of Canada and never, never ever be allowed to pass.

Thomas Jefferson recognized the media for what it is:
“The man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them, inasmuch as he who knows nothing is nearer the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.”

The impression of an independent press in America is part of the illusion.
In 1898, at an annual dinner of the American Press Association, John Swinton, the one-time editor-in-chief of the New York Times, was called upon to toast journalism and America’s free press.
He responded in a surprising way:
“There is no such thing in America as an independent press….”
“You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write his honest opinions, and if you did you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid $150.00 a week for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with—others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things—and any of you who would be so foolish as to write his honest opinions would be out on the street looking for another job. The business of the New York journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to revile, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his race and his country for his daily bread. You know this and I know it, and what folly is this to be toasting an “Independent Press.” We are tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping-jacks; they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

“Mr. Swinton identified modern journalism as a crime:

Well since all the Jewish people are fleeing to God’s country, that will leave a huge mental deficiency in Europe. I don’t believe any race has contributed as much to the human race as the Jewish people. I will always stand with Israel, and those who stand against them, will reap their reward, which is the wrath of God himself.

Leftists hate Jews and any other demographic that produces successful people. It’s that simple.

No, I am saying the topic of anti semitism is getting plenty of attention from the media.

Jay Kelly Trump is making things better for Israel and the Jews , your hatred for them is pathetic.

Space Moose he is not anti semitic , the media and the left are. It is phony deflection. Are you truly that foolish?

Jew hatred? What have you people been smoking? The media has been laying it out on Trump over anti semitism.
commented 2017-02-17 01:19:20 -0500
I’m amazed in the U.S. how they keep trying to attribute the rise in anti-Semitism to Trump and he has only been in power a month. He also can’t be blamed for the rise in anti-Semitism in Europe and Germany where apparently Mein Kampf made it way back on to the best seller list in 2016.

After Donald Trump said, in his meeting with the press today, that the press will take what he is saying and distort it (my words). His words were barely out of his mouth when CBC and CTV were ‘distorting’ what he had said.
These are not journalists wanting to tell the news, they are talk show host wannabes. They are so anxious to spew their own opinions and toxins, they stop looking for real news because it is just too boring to tell only news.

non-lying said:

“I would say tell it again and again and again.”

Amen non-lying. Amen:

“Jay Kelly commented

Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the United States despite her weaknesses, and the bigotry shown against her.

She will win because the main opponent is weak.

Donald Trump has shown great bravado, but cannot present reasons why he might be the United States’ President.

So many Republicans have come out against him, including fifty security advisors. They made it plain that if he really cared about the United States he would resign.

So there we are.

Hillary Clinton is weak by Canadian standards, but she becomes President of the United States because they have nothing better to offer. "

Since the election of Donald Trump in the United States anti-Semiticism seems to be flourishing in the U.S. and in Canada. Brian Lilley seems to forget that for many conservatives in North America “anti-Muslim” and “ant-Jew” are equivalent.

Quoting Lilley, but changing one word, how does this sound:
“stop treating every possible slight against Jews as breaking news that must be shared, that must be denounced that must be told and retold again and again and again.”

I would say tell it again and again and again.

At Lennard Maillet: Maybe raise your Canadian Flag crossed with the American Flag to show your respect for the Canada that once was and respect for the new Commander in Chief of the United States of America..President Donald Trump.. who may/will have saved hope for Canada to become respected as an ally of Democracy for Freedom of Speech, Liberty for all Canadians and Americans.

You read the news and, if you’re as old as I am and grew up through the late 60’s and 70’s, you saw a lot of stupid commie shite and are used to stupidity. Today I begin to question my own perception of reality. “Is this shite actually happening?” “Did that fecking leftoid actually say that in front of a TV camera?” Did the supposed “leader” of my country actually make that ignorant-ass statement? With Harper as PM I was a proud Canadian. These days there are no more flags on my toolbox and I will not fly one at home. These days I am ashamed to be a Canadian.
Donald Trump sure as shite ain’t no Jesus, but he might end up being a saviour because he puts his people FIRST!

M.103 will be accepted and will soon become a Bill. Canadians will become second class citizens and Islamic’s will rule the roost.

To call a spade a spade will earn you six months in the Slammer. Trudeau had his Islamic crew put this M.103 motion on the table, so that when it finally becomes Law, no one will be able to call him names. We must have hurt his feelings. Of course he is looking after his Muslim friends also. Don’t bite the hand that feeds You, right? Justin

We need to fight back with Heavy Artillery. As I mentioned on another page, tonight. Turning the other cheek, is no longer an option.

I never thought that freedom of speech would be curtailed in a Country like Canada.

Is this why Trudeau withdrew our Troops from the middle east. The link below, certainly makes you think so.

What got me was the quote from Iqra Khalid attempting to justify the use of undefined “Islamophobia” in her much-vaunted “motion”. She had the nerve to compare Islamophobia with the Holocaust (assumed victimhood), despite the fact that it was the chief Muslim cleric who told Hitler to start killing Jews in exchange for raising Muslim SS divisions, and despite “Al Quds Day”, an Islamic hatefest calling for the murder of all Jews, being openly celebrated in downtown Toronto each summer.
Here’s what she said:
“I will not do so [remove the word Islamophobia], any more than I would speak to the Holocaust and not mention that the overwhelming majority of victims were six million followers of the Jewish faith and that anti-Semitism was the root cause of the Holocaust,” she said. “We cannot address a problem if we fail to call it by its true name.”

The true name for Ms. Khalid and her liberal ilk is “Islamist terrorists” pushing an agenda to force Sharia blasphemy laws on Canadians, as part of their jihad takeover of this country. If she and her ilk had had their way in regards to the Holocaust, there wouldn’t be any Jews left today. Rest assured that wiping out the Jews will be their first priority, as soon as they gain more power.

An extended aspect of my mongrelism is that I have Jewish relatives by marriage and my kids have Jewish cousins by blood. I learned, as previously posted on another story, that non-Jews can join the JDL; a group with the organization and gonads to defend when attacked.

The title:

Says it all.

Because it is absolutely true.

And I am not Jewish.

Brian, the Jewish NGO pressure groups had their kick at the cat suppressing free speech though the anti-Semitic fear mongering which created section 13, now the Islamist political pressure NGOs are taking their turn and Islamist blasphemy laws using the illusory “Islamophobia” boogeyman – Sharia aligned laws and statute administration do not bode well for Jewish people (witness the Jewish diaspora from France) - but it is a great display of political karma and a practical demonstration of why free speech should be a ecumenic, non partisan issue supported as an absolute right by all people – because if one group can use the state to silence/damage their critics some day their critics will be in power and use the state to silence/damage them.

The moral of this maxim is; never use the power of the state to silence people who offend you because if the state is big enough to do it to them you have made it powerful enough to do it to you.
