1. Major, MASSIVE march in Montreal against excessive Covid 19 measures.
(I was showing a video of the Ottawa demo in August to an American friend and he asked why there was many Trump references, signs and flags. He didn’t understand as this is Canada. I really don’t feel I gave him a good answer. On reflection, I wish I had said, “Just like communism is international, Canadians recognize that President Trump is a great symbol of democracy and individual rights for us all. To show support of Trump, perhaps even more so than in the US, is to show defiance to the left and the enemy-propaganda networks that own Canada’s airwaves, radio and TV.”)
(At both demos there was a showing by the Raelians. That is an odd bunch.)
2. Pakistan: Thousands protest the republishing of the image of Islam’s founder, Mohammad
(In Pakistan, a protest of less than 100,000 isn’t that impressive really. You can get 10,000 people at a demo in Pakistan for slightly larger Naan bread.)
3. Victoria authorities up their game at pushing people around for their own good.
VERY IMPORTANT: Check how the video right above is edited to make it look like the mother is upset with the protestors. but in the video below, you can hear her say police bullying is what is upsetting her and her daughter.
(Funny how none of these authorities said any of those things at the BLM and ANTIFA protestors. Makes you wonder. The second incident though, there is another version of the video on Twitter which makes things look much worse than it looks above. This video above gives the police much more justification for what they did when you see the whole context. Did the police call her a F***ING BI**H or not? Was it added to the lower video? Or subtracted from the top one?)
WTF is wrong with the Australian state of Victoria? https://t.co/CzgzIMFsOe

(CNN)Protesters in Lebanon and Iraq in the last year have turned their ire not only against conditions in their own countries, but against Iran’s corrosive influence in them. Past Palestinian protests in Gaza against the Iran-supported terrorist group Hamas, and protests in Iran itself, against the use of scarce Iranian resources for its leaders’ foreign malign expeditions, have voiced similar frustrations. Syria has been virtually destroyed by a now over nine-year civil war in which much of the population has fought the Iran-backed Syrian leadership.These flashpoints are revealing the fury of Arabs — and Iranians — with the leaders of the Iranian regime. They also reflect a changing Middle East: Notably, this anger is not being directed against Israel, even if the West has wrongfully long seen an Arab-Israeli divide as the region’s fulcrum of conflict, but against Tehran.Now, yet another country has announced it will open diplomatic ties with Israel: After the US-brokered deal with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain has become the second Gulf state to normalize relations, a move that sends further shock waves through a region in which Arab countries have long resisted any diplomatic recognition of Israel.
