Palestinian protestors burn a makeshift Israeli flag, bearing Nazi swastikas on each side of the Star of David, during a demonstration against Israel's continuing assault on Gaza in the refugee camp of Ain el-Hilweh near the southern Lebanese port city of Sidon on December 30, 2008. Arab capitals have been the scene for daily protests since December 27 against the continuing Israeli onslaught in the Gaza Strip that has killed more than 360 Palesitnians. Israel today readied troops on the Gaza border and warned its assault on Hamas could last for weeks, as jets pummelled Islamist targets for a fourth day amid a diplomatic push for a truce.

The Growing Depiction of Israel as a Nazi State

TORONTO—Jews depicted as Nazis, right here in the very heart of Canada, the most docile country on earth? It can’t be. Tell me my eyes are playing tricks on me.

That was my thinking as I saw the placards at the anti-Israel hate fest right in the heart of Toronto.

Canadians often view us Americans as their wilder, more violent cousins. Canadians like Americans. But they also have this view of the average American shooting up a McDonald’s every time they burn his Big Mac and a gunfight breaking out on an American highway if someone gets cuts off in his lane.

    “Canadians like Americans.” — Huh? Since when?
    The author says he loves Canada. That’s nice. But if he would stay here a while he would learn Canadians don’t love him.

    Anti-Americanism is practically a Canadian national sport.

      No way!
      I can’t believe it.

        We laugh at Mexicans for turning beer ad campaigns into political movements. I don’t see a difference here. It’s really…….just SAD.

      Anti-American sentiment in Canada has always been based upon Canada’s historic inferiority complex.

    I thought this was about the depiction of Israel as a Nazi state… far far more important than if Canadians like Americans or not. I love America, hate Obama.

    Every single nation that has made Jew hatred the cornerstone of their existence has imploded. Good luck with that, Canada.
