Hate crime unit investigating vandalism in Toronto.
"It is absolutely appalling to see this targeting of an Indigo store and its Jewish founder and CEO in a vile antisemitic attack. The fact that it occurred on the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht, when thousands of Jewish businesses were vandalized and destroyed in a Nazi-led pogrom in Germany and Austria just before the Holocaust, makes it even more painful to witness.

He did make condemning statements toward Israel yesterday. Coming from the PM, it essentially fans the flames of antisemitism.
It’s antisemitic to criticize the nation of Israel?
Israel is a country, Jews are not Israel. Same for Hamas, is a group. Palestinians are not all for Hamas.
But there are plenty of not-so-smart people out there who don't know that, and who react out of ignorance. That's why we now have the bomb threats, firebombings and hateful graffiti and personal attacks in the street.
