Toronto’s activist city council is emboldening Jew hatred

No matter the mayor in charge, Toronto city council has a history of denying the Jew hatred that has played out on the city’s streets for more than 15 years.

The latest attempt by Coun. James Pasternak, a lone wolf who has tried to put an end to the now almost daily antisemitic events that appall Jews and non-Jews alike, was so benign it should have shot through council unanimously.

Pasternak merely asked at council last week that the city manager develop a “policy framework for the management of rallies and protests” that would follow the city’s Human Rights and Anti-Harassment policy.

That 12-page policy dictates that people have a right to be protected from harassment and discrimination in city facilities, parks and on city streets.

It highlights such examples of harassment as “frequent angry shouting and regular use of profanity and abusive or violent language, physical, verbal or email threats, intimidation, violent behaviors, name calling and public humiliation.”

In other words, these are the kinds of behaviours – on steroids – that Jews and non-Jews alike have endured from the anti-Israel terrorist sympathizers since Oct. 7.
