Mayor Bowman denounces Linda Sarsour; update on BerMax graffiti
The apparent rise of antisemitism and the influx of anti-Israel, pro-BDS figureheads dominated a fast-moving news day, and Publisher Ron East joined Editor Marty Gold at the crime scene in River Heights to update both issues in the inaugural J-Matters Video Alert.
Watch them discuss:
* why Mayor Bowman entered into the fray with the sponsors of Sarsour's scheduled Social Planning Council/Muslim Women's Institute panel appearance in the final week;
* the unacknowledged role of the 4000+ strong petition Ron East started that got opposition rolling to the radical views of Sarsour being given a platform;
* the contradictions between what the Social Planning Council said to the media and what they supposedly told the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg; and
* an in-person assessment of the damage and antisemitic spray painting inside the LGBTQ offices adjacent to the BerMax Cafe that was attacked last week.
