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 school's library.
There seems to be alot of this happening in Canada towards their Jewish communities in more recent times. Perhaps it's time to have round the clock security by guards ON FOOT with security dogs patrolling after hours; you should'nt have to but thats the way of the times whenever there is difficult economic times or when Israel hits those war drums.
The problem is, I could have my house vandalized and nobody would care. I have had my business vandalized and broken into countless times, but since I have no crutch, I get no sympathy. Maybe i need to get me a label.
Doesn't surprise me in the least, and all you have to do is read some of the threads here in ATS to see exhibited the blind hatred for Jews/Israel. Some will deflect and say "Israel Only," but that often a catch to conceal their true feelings. But you know what? They've been putting up with this crap for millennia.
Oh noooooz Another Jewish/Christian/Muslim hate thread. Nothing here folks. Move along. No star, no flag but lots of :d n:
It's time for Jewish communities to have their own law enforcement and I believe there is an organisation in the USA and Israel that trains their own dogs especially. In Australia, all our Jewish schools and larger synagogues are patrolled day and night by armed guards who have all been through the IDF. Toronto and Vancouver's Jewish communities need to look at this option.
They would come under the aupices of security like every other corporation or business that has their own security or employ them except in your case you'd use a security company that is Jewish owned whose security officers (or guards) are IDF trained. By the way, your head of state is still Queen Elizabeth 2nd, and like Australia and New Zealand, Canada is not a republic.
