I am very sad to say that three synagogues, a Jewish school and a daycare were vandalized over the weekend in Montreal Canada. I am very happy that no
one was hurt and the damage does not appear to be that bad. I am ashamed that people still commit these types of acts no matter their purpose.
Innocent people could have gotten hurt or killed.
MONTREAL — Montreal's Jewish community fears it is being targeted in an orchestrated campaign of hatred. B'nai Brith's local chapter issued
a press release Monday following weekend attacks against five institutions. Three synagogues, a Jewish school and a daycare had their windows smashed
with rocks. "Following what appears to be an orchestrated campaign of anti-Semitic attacks, there is particular concern about the targeting of a
school and daycare," the group said. Police suspect the attacks are related. They have no eyewitnesses but are hoping surveillance video might offer
some clues. No arrests have been made. B'nai Brith says it's now time to review any past vandalism at Jewish institutions that may have been
written off as isolated incidents; the organization says it looks like the community is being targeted. The group said this weekend's attacks
brought back "painful memories" of the firebombing of the city's United Talmud Torah School. The school was torched just before Passover in 2004.
Local men Sleiman El-Merhebi and Simon Zogheib were charged in the case, which made international headlines and drew donations to help rebuild the
These types of stories can cause many reactions. First off anger for anyone who would vandalize any property whether it be for run (usually drunken
kids) or racially or religiously motivated. Secondly who would do this and what was their reason? Last but not least, who will be blamed for this?
This is where I am sure to receive some criticism.
Could this be another hoax by a small minority of the Jewish community to gather sympathy? I have no proof of this and I also do not claim this is the
case. It is only a theory of mine.
There have been many hoaxed hate crimes recently around the world against all races and religions. I will provide some links. Please be aware that
some of the links are somewhat questionable and I do not claim for them to be completely accurate, but they do seem legit to me.

Another hoaxed religious hate crime.
There are quite a few racially and religiously motivated hoaxed hate crimes in these links and I am sure that any member will be able to find more if
they feel the need to.
I must ask the question if this was a hoax, what would be their purpose? Lately Canada has had a rise in anti-semitism due to Israeli actions all over
the world. I find this to be unfair because the majority of Jewish people do not support or condone the harsh actions and intentions of the Israeli
government. There is also a rise of anti-zionism in Canada. People need to learn the difference between zionism and Judaism. I have a feeling that
this is a hoax to gather sympathy for the Jewish community and portray the illusion that there is crazy group of people out in Montreal performing
hate crimes against Judaism. This hoax (if it is a hoax) would be produced by the zionists and not by anyone who practices Judaism because most people
who practice organized religion have good intentions and mean well and want to get along with everyone else. I have a feeling that this is to slow
down the criticism Israel has been receiving recently in the Canadian community. I find it odd that if this was a hoax that the culprits would hope
for the general public to fall for it and fall in to their agenda. Hoax or not this is not good.
If there is a group of bigoted people roaming the streets of Montreal performing hate crimes such as these against the Jewish community or any other
group of people then they need to be stopped and punished. This behavior cannot be tolerated no matter what your beliefs are. I am not religious but I
respect others who practice their religion of choice. I am not an anti semite but I am well aware of a small minority of zionists who hide under the
disguise of Judaism to carry out a psy op to help progress their agenda. I am not racist, I have friends of every race, and this label means nothing
I guess my question is who did this, why, and who will be blamed?
