Anti-Semitic incidents in Canada skyrocketed over the last year and have now hit the highest levels “ever recorded” by human rights groups tracking the number of anti-Jewish episodes, according to a new study.
Canadians across the country reported experiencing more anti-Semitism than in the past four years, with anti-Semitic incidents having risen a total of 28 percent from 2013 to 2014, according to the global Jewish advocacy group B’nai B’rith International (BBI).
This made 2014 the “worst year” for anti-Semitism since advocacy groups began tracking incidents in 1982.
The majority of those who reported an instance of anti-Semitism faced harassment, while others faced forms of violence and vandalism as a result of being Jewish, according to the report.
The rise coincides with a global surge in anti-Semitism, including a rash of terrorist attacks against Jewish communities in countries such as France.
(With a typically Canadian pointlessness, this article says not one word about who is causing this, except for a minor hint here…)
Researchers attribute growing anti-Semitism to the ongoing conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians and a growth in anti-Israel activity on college campuses.
(I mean why even bother? If you can’t say who is causing this, then you cannot offer any protection for the victims and may as well not bother to public it at all. Its like an article by an oncologist about a massive increase in cancer deaths in a given area and a refusal to say it is because of a radio active waste dump recently installed in the middle of town)
The District Governor of Ile de France has contacted the State Attorney’s Office Monday after the French newspaper Liberation reported that two French historical sites rejected visits from art history students from Tel Aviv University (TAU).
Management from both the Louvre and the Sainte-Chapelle church responded to the allegations by opening internal investigations; as of Monday, the Sainte-Chapelle church claims that there is no proof indicating that discrimination was the motivating factor behind turning the students away.
According to the report, both historical sites rejected the TAU group due to their Israeli nationality.
The issue led to a diplomatic row, with Nigeria accusing the US of refusing to help land a “killer punch” against Boko Haram.

6. This one is flat out weird. The government of Iran appears to do PSAs (public service announcements) to get sharia compliance. In this one, women are taught how to submit sexually to their husbands, pretty much all the time.
The video was made by an anti regime group mocking the PSA which is the voice you hear. Thank you Ritamalik for the translation
