Toronto anti-Israel vigil, Jan 15/10 (Credit: "Josephine")

Some highlights:

There exist in Toronto today legally enforced no-go zones for Zionists. (…)

I had to be downtown last night, so I decided to check out a candlelight vigil that was being held by (at my count) 29 people in the anti-Israel movement (…) a woman approached and stood uncomfortably close to me.

Woman: “No, you can’t: you’re [Jewish Defense League] JDL.”

Me: “I am not in the JDL.”

Woman: “Whatever.”

Woman: “The JDL has a s** list with everyone’s name on it. I’m probably on it.”

Me: “What?”

Woman: “The JDL, the Zionists have a list with Richard Gere with a penis.

Cop: “Your presence here is upsetting to some people…”

Me: “So my presence is upsetting someone and that’s against the law?”
