Nazi salutes at the Gaza Freedom March





Read what the stick says in the second photo from the top: Palestine House.

Gee, maybe it's time someone started looking into whether or not Palestine House receives government funding.

If you look at the bottom two photos here, you will see that these sieg-heilers were standing directly across from the (mostly Jewish) pro-Israel counter-protesters.

Update: Blazing Cat Fur has info on Palestine House's substantial government funding, plus a photo of the same man waving both the "Palestinian" flag and the Hezbollah flag at the same time.

Hey J notice that smuck's flag pole has "palestine house" written on it? Lets hope they are still not receiving funding.

Wow, BCF, I must have been reading that stick just as you were leaving your comment. Great minds and all that.

;)

Thanks! Credit goes to the friend who took the photos and sent them to me.

Nicely done. Just linked to this from my own blog. Meanwhile, we're getting ready for the shenanigans in Vancouver...

Okay I got a pick of the guy holding the Palestine House flag while also waving the Hezbollah Flag, and thankfully Palestine House was kind enough to initial the same flag staff with a red PH on the opposite side;)

They are on tap to receive over 3 million in tax dollars through 2010.

Thanks very much, Jonathon!

Well done, BCF!

Those people are DISGUSTING!

You neglect the fact that the mock saluters were told by marshals to stop and that another marshal took that guy's hezbollah flag away. But why let mere facts get in the way?

Great work, both of you (Josephine and BCF)!

I just sent off an email to Jason Kenney about our funding of this group.

Anon @ 12:00 -- I have photos and videotape of the ponytailed guy marching down Yonge Street with his Hezbollah flag. Therefore, either you are lying or you are mistaken. Either way, you are wrong.

I have no information either way about any response of any marshal to the Nazi salutes. But, given that you are wrong about the flag, you'll forgive me if I don't take your word for it.

Josephine said...

Anon @ 9:11: Disgusting, indeed.

Natasha: Thank you, good work!

Blazing Cat Fur said...

Wow anon is quite the wee liar.

I am sure you all remember that the Arab states backed the Nazi's during WW2. I do.

Josephine said...

BCF, did you say wee? I guess that rules out our pal Andy.

Old & Grouchy, I certainly do remember that.

The Nazi salute should definitely not be allowed in my country, Canada - much less give funding for a group that has these people marching with them. I don't care if the marshalls okayed it or not.. they should know by now who they are dealing with.
