In January, when the JDL made common cause with a racist British group, the English Defence League, Banerjee was at their Toronto rally, which was opposed by the Canadian Jewish Congress. Bernie Farber, then CEO, said: “When extremists come together, we all too often get a combustible reaction. . . . Using the tactics of hooligans, whether from the right or the left, is appalling.”Yes, it's far better to sit down with "friends" (like Harpoon, a hooligan with words) at a convivial interfaith repast of falafels and samosas (or at a convivial anti-hate confab). Just make sure not to mention that pesky Jew-state if you don't want the amiability to melt away before your eyes--like an evil, green-faced broad encountering a bucket of water.
Bernie Farber: Official Jew emeritus, political candidate, pal of Harpoon--and pre-eminent "sha, shtil" Canucki Jew of our time.
