Vancouver: Palestinians burn, steal, and stomp on Israeli flags

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Over the weekend, Palestinian protesters stomped on an Israeli flag – because that's a normal, proportionate response to President Trump's commitment to move the US embassy to Israel's eternal capital, Jerusalem. 

But it didn’t happen in Gaza City, the West Bank or anywhere else in the Middle East. It wasn't even in a European "no-go-zone", but rather, right here in Vancouver.

Watch as I show you how some Palestinian protesters decided to burn an Israeli flag.

Burning, stealing, and stepping on any nations flag is extremely disrespectful, though not illegal. But just imagine for a minute if these were not Palestinian Muslims but alt-right Neo-Nazi holocaust deniers burning the Israeli flag?

I have no doubt that the VPD would have stepped in to stop any flag burning or looting and made arrests, something police in attendance did not do over the weekend.

Other than a few local news stories from CTV and Global's Vancouver bureaus, this has not been a national news story. And, as of mid-day Monday no comment from Mayor Robertson, Premier Horgan or the Prime Minister.

It seems we’ve become numb to this sort of thing as long as the target is Israel.

Whether its BDS, the halls of academia, even within the ranks of the NDP and Liberal Party, or at the United Nations, condemnation of Israel and latent anti-Semitism is everywhere in our society today.

B'nai Brith Canada reported that attendees of the Vancouver rally shouted “Millions of martyrs are marching toward Jerusalem!”

If that were a torn up Palestinian Flag, Justin Trudeau would have flown out to Vancouver to make another teary eyed apology to the Palestinian and Muslim community first thing this morning.


While the Liberals and NDP stay silent, Conservative MP Michael Cooper strongly condemned the anti-Semitic Boycott Divestment and Sanctions against Israel (BDS) movement that has permeated campuses across British Columbia, and indeed the entire West. 

WATCH as MP Cooper make a statement in the House of Commons on December 13:

Where is Christopher Wilson?

Although if this is acceptable. I will pile my refuse on the driveway, put a match to it to protest our having to pay for removal. The fire reduces bulk, and the rain will clean the driveway,and it will go down the street. Problem solved. It’s just burning something
commented 2018-01-05 21:15:20 -0500
So lighting fire’s, burning thing’s that offend you, on public property is allowed? I do not think uncontrolled fires in public places are very safe. I think British Columbia’s version of OHS should look into safety violation’s.

I never though I would see the rise of antisemitism in the free world again. But I didn’t allow for the fear of Islam in our leaders. They would persecute their mothers if Islam demanded it. Fear is Islam’s weapon, they know it and they laugh at our cowardice.

I can see the anger in your face & hear it in your voice Christopher & I feel the same. This is bloody disgusting. How many videos have I watched where very young Palestinian children are taught to hate the Jewish people & even encouraged to murder them. If I have seen these videos, every Liberal out there more tech savvy would have seen them too. I’m beginning to think every damn Liberal is a terrorist lover & it’s sickening. Is there a word we can come up with to label these people who hate Jews, like the word invented for Islam, etc.Trudeau only defends terrorists, not law abiding people.

I wonder what goes through the minds of those people.
I wonder what goes through Jay Kelly’s mind besides the wind.

Liza Rosie—We must be careful as Politicians can fool the people with statements like ‘ELECT ME AND I’LL ONLY BRING 250 THOUSAND IMMIGRANTS". When David Cameron got elected, he brought in double that amount, and said" Refugees and Migrants are different than Immigrants"
I believe Harper also brought more than 250 thousand, counting all categories, where as Bernier means 250 thousand total. If he runs for the Leadership, I will ask him.

When you are taught religious tribal hatred from birth, then this is the behaviour that you’ll get. It’s the same behaviour that’s being taught in our schools. If you don’t like something just silence your opposition, and attack and destroy, like maniacs! This is why their countries are in turmoil, because the crowd mentality is encouraged. If you try to be an individual, you are murdered! Unless of course you are a “lone wolf” who is carrying out the devil’s work!
commented 2017-12-12 12:49:33 -0500
Ron, Bernier would have been a better choice for sure. 250,000 immigrants per year sounds civilized after what we are seeing under Justin, I believe that number is what Harper was allowing, and one or two PM’s before him. This re-population plan has been policy for some time now. The place has been flooded.

Until we can regain some balance I don’t want any numbers above say 5,000, carefully selected, with a balance in where they come from. We shouldn’t be bringing in largely from Islamic countries. It sort of looks like we already have enough of that. Momentum has been created, and it will be difficult to regain some control, but it must be done if Canada is going to survive.

I hope the CPC come to their senses, barring that I will pray for a new party if they refuse to represent us.

Jay Kelly, stop being ridiculous. It is clear to everyone that the Rebel and Canadians who can think for themselves are in support of Israel and the Jewish people. Those same people who can think for themselves know that individual Muslims are not the problem. Islam is the problem and the biggest one Canada will ever have.
If you want to point fingers look at the Prime Minister, he consults with a Nazi collaborator, and won’t support Israel.

Palestine doesn’t want peace and a solution, it never has, it wants victory and only to conquer. The Palestinian people are being held hostage and brainwashed by Hamas, an Islamic terrorist group with no respect for human life, not even their own.

Sane people who live in the free world are leery of that sort of thing, don’t want it in our country and shouldn’t have to put up with it. These Palestinians continue in Canada, with their warring and groom their children to take up the torch to hate and kill the Jew. Justin keeps importing this hatred into Canada and refuses to act against these acts to insure a broader voting base. Is it really any wonder Canadians don’t want anymore Islam in their country at least until they get their country under proper leadership again?

NO words from the PM from QUE. or Robertson yet because G.Soros has not given them the word yet.
commented 2017-12-12 08:03:42 -0500
People like Amand Hug and Kiss seem to be a prime candidate for seeing for herself what the law says about hate crimes and preaching hate.
commented 2017-12-12 08:01:26 -0500
As I understand nit, if I show up on a street corner and advocate violence towards a group of people, I could be charged with a hate crime and end up in front of a judge.
So how come the parents of these kids are not charged with inciting their children to commit acts of violence.
After all, the law is the law and it does not matter if you are poor or rich, black or white or yellow or red, a Jew or a Christian or a Muslim or any other religion you are subject to the same law.
It is time the government of the day starts to enforce the law of the land else, society will fall into chaos.

Drew Wakariuk, thank you for your multiple comments. Does it bother you that The Rebel promotes hatred of Jews and Muslims? Would you rather The Rebel singled out one and said that they were swarthy and had weird noses?

The Rebel is a conservative web-site intended for Canadian and U.S. readers. To the intended audience they all look the same.

Its usually open season on Jews for any reason one wants. So the MSM aren’t too interested in something like this. Just as the MSM and Calgary police were about the attack on Jews by a mob two years ago. Just as the MSM ignored anti-Semitic gatherings on public areas by Muslims in Toronto who chant, “Death to Israel”, or “Death to Jews”.

It seems that the MSM figure its a non-story, unlike someone saying something mean to a burqa wearing woman. That gets national attention. Remember, the MSM must be PC at all times.

Multiculturalism: something to enjoy at home and within your community; not something everyone must be forced to accept. The hatreds of one group on another group must not be ignored by our society.

Jay Kelly please show how the Rebel promotes hatred against Jews you pathetic worm.
commented 2017-12-12 01:42:49 -0500
Jay Kelly you are an ignorant fool, Anti Jewish crimes go up when Muslims gain numbers. Nothing you say can change that you ignorant bigot. Now go ignore the Christian Genocide in the middle east.

Don’t Worry i am sure the HRC will spring into action and do what they claim they do. Just as likely as i will eat some Apples and Bananas and sh*t a fruit salad.

JAN G, don’t fool yourself about Jews in Canada. They are attacked in a way that Christians cannot understand. More hate-crimes in Canada are committed against Jews than against any other group. As it happens, web-pages like The Rebel end up promoting hatred against Jews.

The Rebel thinks it can get away with promoting hatred of Muslims based on their looks or complexion or hair style and so on. It turns out that bigoted Christians associate the same things with Muslims.

Jews in Canada feel persecuted, and with good reason. Web-pages like The Rebel are serious and identifiable promoters of anti-Semiticism and anti-Jewish hatred.
commented 2017-12-12 00:12:56 -0500
They can do this to the Jews same as they do it to Christians, because no one stops them. Only Jews and Christians are prohibited from free speech.

I guess the Chinese are now being pushed out of Vancouver? Considering they own 3/4 of the city.
