It’s a Good Thing That Pro-Palestinian Protesters Are Not at All Antisemitic

Letter from McGill Principal (click to enlarge)
Because otherwise, advertising a rally at McGill College in Montreal to be held on the 85th anniversary of Krystalnacht with flyers showing people breaking windows would be completely beyond the pale. (Pale of Settlement, maybe?)

As Anna Russel would say, "I'm not making this up, you know."

I am sure that many, probably most of the pro-Palestenian protesters are not antisemitic, but if you tolerate this sh%$, you are complicit:


Earlier Thursday, McGill University’s principal stepped up security on campus, saying he was “deeply concerned” for the safety of students over what he described as antisemitic promotional posters for the rally.

“The poster features an image of a group of individuals kicking and breaking glass windows,” said Deep Saini, principal and vice-chancellor of McGill.

“Publicizing an event through allusions to destruction of property is troubling,” Saini added, noting the rally was also planned on the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht.

(emphasis mine)

To paraphrase an old German saying, "If there's a virulent antisemite at the table and 10 other people sitting there talking to him, then you got a table with virulent antisemites." (U kannst nicht mit den Nazis ins Bett gehen ohne ein Nazi zu werden.)
